Pretty Woman Walking Down The Street


Everyone always asks me what inspires me to make the dishes that I do.  Well to be frank often times, it’s what I’m craving, but not to go without saying that for a foodie like me, inspiration is everywhere and can be pulled from anything.  I have a one track mind in the sense more

The Most Whimsical Chef I know…


Pops takes the cake, hands down. (Though he may ask for some Kimchi with that Cake). Exhibit A). Tonight after work, he attempted to cajole me into trying some of his “special soup.” Preying upon my weakened state of hunger, (I hadn’t eaten since breakfast which always puts me in “delirium-mode”) he presented me more
