(mini) Tuna and ham kimbap
Sometimes I make a kimbap roll for my late shift at work and my co-workers would say: ahh sushi! I try to explain them that it’s a little bit different. (I like both of them). I am no expert though and I learned how to make this by watching video’s on youtube, made by Maangchi, Aeriskitchen and SeonKyoungLongest. They are wonderful foodbloggers. Korean food hasn’t really hit...
Salty meat dumpling
One of my childhood memories is about my mother making rice dumplings. To me, hers taste the best. I think everyone has a dish that no one else would make it better than mom. So I often worry, if I don’t learn her dishes now, it would be lost forever. Losing my dad one and a half year ago, I feel like I have not been trying hard enough to make memories. I regret not having recorded any footages....
Chapaguri, which seems to be very popular right now, has sparked my interest and it has been on my have-to-try-out-list. I have a weakness for instant ramen noodles. It’s not healthy, but oh it can be so so good at times. Neoguri has two versions, mild and spicy. This is one is spicy. I always have to smile when I read about ramen purists, who are talking passionately about the perfect...
My favorite onigiri
Okay this title is a little misleading, because I have lots of favorite onigiri fillings. But one of my new favorite filling is with nametake. I saw a blogpost from Yoko on Umamimart and I instantly wanted to try it out. It’s really nice and appetizing. The instructions are very clear. You need 2 packs of enoki mushrooms. Mixed with soysauce (3 tbs), mirin (3 tbs), vinegar (2 tbs), sake...
A little late..indecisive...
I am just going to dive into this tumblr, as if I didn’t took a long break from tumblr. I did, I’d postponed and I got lazy. (although I think reversing the order would be making more sense) ;). I’d decided to stick with this tumblr. Although being lazy wasn’t the main thing. I have been going through a sort of health cycle lately and I need to adjust and find ways to make it work. Having...
On Christmas Eve… Mom: If we are having unexpected guests who wants to make use of our bathroom then we are screwed.. All you need with this dish a bowl of hot rice and some steamed eggplants + seconds! p.s. Wherever you are, Merry Christmas :)
Kodoku no gurume + inspired dishes
孤独のグルメ or kodoku no gurume/ the solitary gourmet. I have been meaning to post something about this wonderful J-drama. If you are looking for some highly intense complicated brain breaking plot well here is the thing. Kodoku no gurume doesn’t have any of those, it doesn’t even have a plotline. However, if you combine Japanese food with a guy named Goro who is eating bulks of scrumptious...
Sometimes I am so tired after work that I could just crash on the couch and stay there for the rest of the evening. One of the things that will make me get up are these delicious chewy cakey gooey treats. Chocohotopots from Nigella’s books Feast. They are easy and fast and they make the house smell like a bakery. One is enough because it’s quite rich. Yet somehow 2 are gone...
