In the last 3 weeks, I've been experimenting with different Korean recipes that I've found through blogs and just browsing online.

Although it's cheaper to go out and eat, I'm finding a lot of joy in just spending the night in, cooking up some Korean stew for the week. It's quite an adventure since I end up spending a lot of time at the grocery store looking for all the foreign ingredients (like dried seaweed or organic soba noodles). But once I get home and get cookin, I turn up the music, light a couple candles and let the deliciousness begin :)

I don't have an oven or a microwave so I'm quite limited in what I can make. But with a stove, there's plenty I can still make, such as kimchi soup, mandoo soup, seaweed soup...not to mention, there's a plethora of Korean dishes that require no cooking, just prepping.

I've made other dishes, including kimchi soup and mandoo soup but unfortunately, my camera was dead so I couldn't document it. Oh well, next time!

Hope all of you had a lovely weekend. Until next time, bisous xoxo

Who would have THUNK it? 10 years ago, cooking was the last thing you would have found enjoyable. Ha!

Sniff, sniff... tissue please.
I'm experiencing the same emotions as the day when I realized my son is ACTUALLY appreciating home cooked meals versus fast food Mexican.

I'm so excited for you Elysabeth, as you discover the joys of cooking and hopefully, the joys of other people enjoying your creations.
