Happy New Year friends! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with copious amounts of food, stuffed bellies, excess of sweets and tons of fun.
Our first recipe that we decided to try for this brand new year is one of our all time faves (well, E’s all time fave.. he usually buys these at the bakery)… Chinese BBQ Pork buns, also referred to as ‘cha siu bao’. These baos were no joke… tasted like legit bakery buns!
Can I get some GMBs up in here?!
GMB aka ‘gai mei bao’ are coconut-filled chinese cocktail buns. For some reason, the term ‘GMB’ caught on in our house, probably b/c everyone was too lazy to say the full name lol
So it was Friday, August 19th… day of my last summer final and official start to a worry free summer break. Decided to kick it off with some Chinese tapioca pudding. Not sure why… just had a craving for it, but after the first bite, wasn’t feeling it anymore and wish I had made a cold dessert.
