From Cupcakes to Traditional Korean Food and Everything in Between

Breakfast

Jam, Easy & Homemade

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I started making this jam when I was 10.  At the time, supper for my little brothers generally consisted of grilled hot dogs or spam with kimchi but at least we had fresh jam with our wonder bread and now I can’t remember the last time I had spam or wonder bread.  This jam is [...]

Yogurt, Homemade + Greek Yogurt

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Though we’re back to cold rainy days next week, at least someone got the memo about it being the first day of spring today.  Oh sunshine, won’t you stay? For the following weeks, whether the weather decides to cooperate or not, I’ve planned an arsenal of fresh and light recipes for y’all, starting with my [...]

French Press Coffee

Up until a couple years ago, I never drank coffee {this from a girl who even worked as a barista}.  I guess it’s not too hard to believe that I’m naturally energetic so I never found the need for it but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve procured an appreciation for a nice café noir. If [...]

Biscuits, Soft & Fluffy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can’t rave about these biscuits enough.  As we eat a ton of biscuits here in the south, it was only appropriate to take the time and consideration to perfect this recipe.  They are as omnipresent as sweet tea and this particular recipe bakes up fluffy, tender, and pillowy biscuits with a flaky crust that [...]

Korean Sweet Potato Bread {Easy}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With all the baking going on for the holidays, it’s nice to give yourself a help out sometime.  This week alone, I’ve committed to 2 pies, 2 dozen rice cakes, 5 dozen cupcakes, and some surprise extras too, I’m sure.  These Korean sweet potato breads are accessible for even the busy week of Thanksgiving so [...]

Chocolate Pumpkin Pancakes {With Salted Caramel & Whipped Cream}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are probably my favorite sweet indulgence at breakfast right now.  They have golden crispy edges, a fluffy custardy center with melting shards of dark chocolate, swirling into a sinful sticky mess when draped with salted caramel sauce and topped with a fluffy dollop of vanilla scented whipped cream. 5.0 from 4 reviews Chocolate Pumpkin [...]

Kabocha Squash Porridge

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Growing up, this was one of my mama’s favorite soups.  When the leaves began to fall, you could bet that a big pot of this would be simmering away on the stove top.  I didn’t really appreciate it then {opting for more conventional and boring soups of the chicken noodle variety} but now, I can’t [...]

Chai Tea

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of my favorite things about Autumn is the cozy blanket of spice and warmth, not just provided by a pair of fuzzy socks but from the wealth of spices that nature has to offer.  A steaming mug of chai is the perfect swirling mixture that is just enough familiarity wrapped up in the novelty [...]

Steamed Korean Egg

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My love for eggs has been well documented here.  Its versatility never ceases to amaze me.  This steamed egg dish was something my mama would whip up for us when she didn’t want to fuss around in the kitchen but provide us a hearty and satisfying meal.  It can be eaten alone or as we [...]

Kale Blueberry Chia Smoothie

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have long professed my love for this smoothie. It’s part of my daily routine and helps me feel good all day. I’ve never been one to gravitate towards coffee or energy drinks (though I’ll do a decaf latte once in awhile, I’ve never really consumed either and the latter never). I know, love, and [...]
