….We often serve this dish as party food for the family or when guests come over. The combination of various vegetables and meat will satisfy everyone. It’s best at room temperature or cold. This is usually a pretty fancy dish you serve to guests, but I simplified it here to its best parts. It was served with soy sauce. This sauce is very distinctive and special and you can use it in a lot of other dish too either as a dipping sauce or a salad dressing. I keep the most important and delicious parts for this recipe. The pan-fried…


….It’s a common home-cooked Chinese dish. This is a simple recipe — you only need to fry a small shrimp toast sandwich. Also the garlic sauce makes a perfect combination. I don’t cook this dish often, but my husband loves it every once in a while. It’s easy to make it, but you have to keep an eye out for the oil temperature because bread and shrimp fry at different temperatures. The point is to start frying at 60 degrees. The result is crunchy on the outside. My husband said “It’s the king of crunchiness”…. Husband who always tells taste…


….As my husband and I get older, there are some ingredients we should avoid when cooking… like sugar, butter, salt. We have to be careful now. I was thinking whether or not to order a cake for my husband’s birthday a few days ago. I asked him several times, because he likes cakes. But he said in a cool manner “I don’t need it anymore”. It made me hesitate, but I decided — first birthday without any cake for him….. However, my daughter ANNE must have been very upset, so she made lemony turmeric tea cake from scratch for Dad…


….My husband and I like boiled octopus, and we eat it once a week with garlic and sesame sauce. Let’s make pulpo a feira, which I used to eat often at a restaurant. Is it this easy searching for and making a simple recipe? Also how do I do the plating?…….. I followed @sseong_nh’s recipe and plating. It wasn’t easy to make the same plating…I will never be able to follow the plating. Thank you for sharing such a good recipe. We ate it and were satisfied to see the end product and it was delicious. When a new recipe…


….Fish pancake is a very common side dish for Koreans. This dish is very delicious and quick to make. Good thing about making this dish is that the smell of cooking it is so good, the smell makes my husband mouth water. I like tasting this dish the best while frying it. It doesn’t need any specific recipe, but needs some skills for frying in the pan. If you heat with high heat in the pan, the egg mixture will be golden brown. So you have to keep an eye on the pancake with medium low heat. It’s also important…


….Tofu is a healthy ingredient as everyone knows. It’s a must-have ingredient in everyone’s refrigerator. I also use it as an ingredient in many foods. Sometimes, I use tofu as a main ingredient for a dish and eat a simple healthy meal. JOHN is crazy about this dish and can eat this once in a week. Light soy sauce helps the flavor of delicious soft tofu. It doesn’t need heat and can be eaten cold. You can add your favorite vegetables with this, so you can enjoy a variety of flavors. I add some okra, katsuobushi, and garlic chips on…


….Flowers started to bloom on the perilla leaves in my garden. I had fun with the perilla leaves that grew well during this summer. The young perilla leaf buds I got from a friend are growing healthy and well. A few days ago, the friend picked some perilla leaves at my garden. We laughed so much…….hahaha. I was going to pick a basket of perilla leaves and make pan-fried perilla leaves with seafood today. Food made with many ingredients from my garden is much more satisfying. Sharing it also gives me joy. I was going to add some clams as…


….I can’t cook a variety of dishes using salmon well. I grill or make it as sashimi. I found a new way through an Instagram post and made it. I learned how to cook salmon and almost ate it all while grilling it. Also I seasoned it with pickled plum. I bought some pickled plum from a Japanese market. It wasn’t easy to buy it, because there was a lot of picked plum. This was the first time I bought it. I started making it in anticipation of a new experience. It was hard to roll them with rice paper…


….Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish. It simply translates to “mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables”. Usually I make bibimbap that is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with seasoned vegetables, meat, and gochujang. But my husband JOHN likes hot bibimbap in an earthenware bowl - “hot pot”. So I’m going to show you bibimbap prepared and served in heated earthenware bowl called dolsot-bibimbap. This is well-known for the way the bowl makes a layer of crispy, crackling rice on the bottom of the bibimbap. Even though we mix up bibimbap before we eat it, the…


….Ssam means wrapped and bap means rice, so you can imagine ssambap means wrapped rice. You can use various kinds of edible leaves when you make your ssambap. There is no rule to eating ssambap, so the great part of enjoying ssambap is that you can become creative. Make some ssambap and hand it over to your family, friend, and your love. That is a good way to become a friend….. I used some kale leaves and chard leaves today. Kale and chard have some bitterness, so I blanched them. Blanching in water to reduces bitterness. Also I added some…
