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 [...]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 [...]

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 [...]

Called “Boo-deh ji-geh,” this stew is perfect for cold days when you want something hot but quick.  It’s essentially a “leftovers soup” and was traditionally served by the peasants in Korea from what they could gather at US Army bases, hence the name.  Though, this soup doesn’t play as necessary of a role as it [...]

Korean Cold Noodles Naengmyeon 냉면

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

About a decade ago, I was in Korea and watched Mama’s eyes light up as the server brought out these endlessly long strands of noodles to bathe in chilled icy broth.  I starred in wonder as they gently nudged the toppings over the bowl, only for them to softly float away and wondered what the [...]

Squid Soup

Daddy grew up on the water so naturally, he ate a lot of seafood growing up.  There isn’t much that he won’t consume if it comes from the sea and I followed suit and am a huge fan of seafood myself.  One of his favorites has got to be squid.  Growing up, we had a [...]
