Mini Pumpkin Pies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I recently had the dilemma of transporting several pies to a holiday party and lo and behold 7 of said pies had apparently experienced a bit of turbulence and their delicate flaky crusts had crumbled.  The silver lining here was that I was able to hoard the buttery bits for myself, done in the spirit […]

Korean Potatoes 감자조림

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  I’ve expressed my love for the egg several times before but the humble potato comes in a close second.  It’s just so versatile and patient.  Weeks can go by and you won’t hear the potato grumbling to be used up or envious of your attentions elsewhere and when you need it, its applications are […]

Foolproof Gravy

If you can master this simple technique, the options are endless when it comes to tailor-making gravy with a personalized touch for Thanksgiving supper {or anything that requires gravy–can that be everything, please?}  I love playing around with this depending on what mood strikes.  This can range from anything from thyme to cognac {my personal […]

Monkey Bread

I may have a new addiction…and I may or may not have devoured more than half this tin the moment I wrapped up filming. Monkey bread is beautifully composed of pillowy soft balls of dough that are buttered, rolled in sugar and spice then soaked in gooey, sticky caramel sauce. Welcome to my newest obsession. […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love pumpkin pie but faced with the prospect of baking several pies in a few weeks on top of Thanksgiving supper, I figured I’d whip up a no-bake version for myself when the craving was fierce but the effort must be kept to a minimum. Cue this layered custardy treat that involves no baking […]

Korean Sweet Stuffed Pancakes 호떡

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have such fond memories of my mama buying these hot off the grill on the streets of Korea.  Korean streets are so lively, hustling and bustling with activity.  All the street vendors vie for your attention and when swirled with the insane aromas of sizzling food, it can have a dizzying affect, but one […]

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

BakedPotatoSoup

In recent days, we’ve experienced a bitter cold snap that makes sunny days lounging by the sea with an icy drink in hand seem like a far and distant memory.  Per usual, I find my solace in food and if it must be cold, I’ll gladly cuddle up to the warmth of a thick and […]

Homemade Chocolate {and Vanilla} Pudding

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sometimes, it’s the simple things in life that are the best.  Take this pudding for example.  It doesn’t require nearly as much effort as other desserts but the reward is immense in the fact that you can sit and pretend like you don’t have a care in the world…like when you were 7 and snack […]

No-Bake Cookie Dough + Truffles

CookieDough

Happily enough, I get a ton of emails from very young viewers and they express how much they love my easy recipes, most of which are no-bake or only require 2-3 ingredients.  In that spirit, I’ve created super simple no-bake cookie dough truffles that are safe to eat and come together in no time.     […]

No-Bake Caramel Corn

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love caramel corn.  I love how it can be buttery, crunchy, sweet, sticky, and salty all at once.  However, I don’t enjoy having to babysit it.  Constantly checking up on it and stirring is not my idea of a good time, especially since said caramel corn doesn’t even pay minimum wage. This recipe is […]
