This cake has soft and fluffy layers of cake wrapped in light, airy whipped cream frosting and is then studded with plenty of fresh fruit.  It’s the perfect cake for those who don’t have a huge sweet tooth but want to enjoy a nice dessert.  Aside from my Japanese cotton cheesecake, this also one of [...]

Growing up, we had this often.  So much so that there was a period of my young adult life where I refused to eat it for awhile.  But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become wiser and realize just how delicious this stuff is.  I salivate when I think about how it tastes with kimchi which [...]

When I was younger, I didn’t understand why we were always drinking roasted barley tea instead of water.  We always had gigantic jugs of it in the fridge and when we’d have supper, we’d often get hot barley tea.  Sometimes, we’d even have rice soaked in barley tea for breakfast and it got to the [...]

Growing up, we always had fresh soybean sprouts in the refrigerator.  So commonplace was it that I barely noticed its presence.  I figured it was as typical as the water we drank.  It wasn’t until I got older that I realized the special place that soybean sprouts reserved for the Korean table.  It’s an everyday [...]

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 [...]

I didn’t always have a birthday cake but this Korean birthday soup was always at the party. Additionally, nursing mothers also swear by it because it’s so nourishing and comforting. The seaweed used here is called by several names, whether it be sea plant, sea mustard, wakame, or miyuk but despite its multi-tasking abilities, it [...]
