Cooking: Kimchi Fried Rice

Cooking, Korean
August 7, 2013 I love kimchi fried rice. I finally know the secret to getting it so red…it’s the Korean pepper paste. We used Maangchi’s recipe. 3 cups cooked rice 1 cup kimchi chopped 1/4 cup kimchi juice 1/4 cup water 3 tbsp pepper paste 3 tsp sesame oil 1 tbsp sesame seed Stirfry kimchi in oiled pan […] {More...}

Cooking: Chicken Meat Balls & Teriyaki Sauce

July 2, 2013 Kimchi: I used this recipe. You can easily increase/decrease ingredients or add other ingredients to your taste. I decided to use italian bread crumbs and skipped adding herbs. I also rolled the meat balls in some flour. I think it helped them from sticking and it made for a nice, crispy outside. They took around […] {More...}

Cooking: Cottage Pie

June 26, 2013 Kimchi: Ironically I’ve never made cottage pie before because Martini said he wasn’t a fan of it, but when I decided I finally wanted to make it anyways he said he didn’t remember saying that and it actually sounded tasty. LOL. Oh well. Cottage pie is definitely “comfort” food. It doesn’t look appetizing but it […] {More...}

Cooking: Potato Gnocchi

June 25, 2013 Kimchi: Chef John shows how to make potato gnocchi with one potato. I love this! I’m a big fan of gnocchi because of it’s doughy center. Honestly, I failed pretty badly at the recipe because I couldn’t tell how much flour to add, so I ended up not adding enough and after I had cut […] {More...}

Cooking: Yellow Cake

June 21, 2013 I made a yellow cake for my dad’s birthday yesterday. I decided to frost it with buttercream frosting and put strawberries on it since we have a huge box of ’em. I search for a “good” yellow cake from scratch online, and a lot of people kept pointing to this recipe on a forum. I […] {More...}

Cooking: Cauliflower cream soup

June 6, 2013 Kimchi: Followed this recipe. It tasted pretty good. It was a great way to use up the chicken stock I made myself from when I deboned chicken breasts and the cauliflower that was getting old in the fridge, but I would never go through all the work again. Or I would just use a no-sodium […] {More...}

Cooking: Sweet & Spicy Green Beans

June 5, 2013   I used this recipe with a few changes, like increasing a few ingredients, and adding sugar & oyster sauce. 2 lbs green beans 2 tsp oyster sauce 1/4 cup soy sauce 3-6 garlic cloves minced 2 tsp chili garlic sauce (didn’t turn out very spicy, would increase by a lot more if spicy is […] {More...}

Cooking: Baked Drummettes & Asian Zing Sauce

May 29, 2013 Kimchi: I avoid deep frying anything at all costs! So when I finally had the opportunity to cook some drummettes, I decided I was going to bake them. They turned out really yummy still! Kimchi: So after searching the net for ways to bake some crispy wings, I learned that one of the best ways […] {More...}

Cooking: Mustard Brandy Chicken

May 26, 2013 Kimchi: I like making honey mustard chicken, but I felt like trying something a little different, and gave Pioneer Woman’s recipe a try. It turns out the heavy cream I had was past expiration date so as usual, I ended up not having cream after halfway into a recipe already. The dairy gods must not […] {More...}

Cooking: Crispy Sesame Chicken

May 25, 2013 Kimchi: I used this sesame chicken recipe. However, I did not use their breading mixture and I didn’t fry it. I baked it at 400 degrees for 15 min and then flipped it for another 5-15 min until they were over 165 degrees and the breading was browned. Here’s what I used for the sauce: […] {More...}
