Kimchi Pancakes 김치전

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love how versatile kimchi is.  As it’s something that’s always in my fridge, I enjoy discovering new and old ways to turn it into something different.  These Korean pancakes aren’t of your fluffy variety.  They’re delicately light and crisp on the edges and ever so slightly chewy and tender in the center with the [...]

Dumplings 만두 {2 Ways}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are certain things that I try not to get when I dine out at an Asian restaurant.  Usually, it’s edamame or dumplings.  Both are so easy to make at home and much cheaper if you do.  I like to make an insane amount of these dumplings and prepare some while freezing the others for [...]

When we were itty bitty, Mama would put something on your plate and you knew not to gripe or pout and stomp.  You ate it or you didn’t eat.  An array of ruby colored salads would be paraded before us but really, as a kid, it all kind of bled together into one heap and [...]
