Korean Kimchi Pancakes How to Recipe

I love how versatile kimchi is.  As it’s something that’s always in my fridge, I enjoy discovering new and old ways to turn it into something different.  These Korean pancakes aren’t of your fluffy variety.  They’re delicately light and crisp on the edges and ever so slightly chewy and tender in the center with the […]

Seafood Pancakes Haemul Pajeon 해물파전

Fried Pickles


If there’s danger in leaving me to my own devices and coloring everything pink, there’s an equal probability that I want to deep fry it all too. As a kid, I actually abhorred anything deep fried (except French fries because French fries are awesome like that).  I remember going to a seafood joint with my […]

Chicken Wings in Honey Sriracha


Included football in the background and WINGS!  Crispy, hot, succulent, and SPICY!  I swear, if I go a few days without having something spicy in my mouth, I start craving it pretty badly.
