I hope you didn’t think our Chinese New Year celebration was over when these savory little pockets of love and pancakes of tastiness were left unaddressed. I know you already saw this set of photographs yesterday, but I wanted to give you all of the recipes I used and not just the Lion’s Head meatballs.

Potstickers are a must in this household. I spend all afternoon making large batches, freezing smaller batches for later use. Handsome loves them and I am always looking for new ways to change them up. His mother’s will always hold a place in his stomach, but I know better than to try to one up those, so variations it is.

Be warned: Before you dive into either of these appetizers, know that these are not ‘quick fixes.’ You will be in the kitchen for a while, so wear your comfortable shoes and put on some music. It will also help to have a sous chef ready to give you on hand. It is much easier to have one person handling the filling and another set of hands for pinching the potstickers shut.

So, roll up your sleeves and let’s make potstickers and scallion pancakes!

Your scallion pancakes look great! It is a different take from my dad's recipe that I posted on my blog last year. I've never used a food processor to make the dough. I'll definitely have to test that out as it would make my life easier!
