I absolutely love the smell of gochugaru. It reminds me of "kimchi days" growing up. My grandmas, mom, and aunts would be covered in red up to their elbows and the whole house would smell of spice and fresh cabbage. This is a brine for my perilla leaves--made of soy sauce, sugar, chili peppers, garlic, spring onions, sesame oil, and of course, gochugaru. They are pickling as I write and I cannot wait to dig into them tomorrow!

It’s my birthday this Monday, but because I’ll be at work that day, my mom invited me over today for some birthday brunch! This is a very typical Korean meal, including seaweed soup, rice, and banchan. Seaweed soup is a traditional soup served on birthdays (you can learn more about it on my blog). My mom’s version was delicious. But the real star of the meal was her dumplings! So delicate and flavorful, I could eat a hundred of them!! Yesterday, I was thinking about how mothers and grandmothers show their love by not only serving/making food for their loved ones, but by serving them meat. Meat, as you might have guessed, is the most expensive luxurious food item in Korea. When i was growing up, my grandmother would take an entire chicken, remove all the bones, and shred all the meat and put it on a plate for me on my brother. I was a little sad that my choice to go vegan has taken that expression of love away from my mother, but, this picture—and the work that went into it—says a thousand words, as well as three.

For a limited time only, watch me make this fucking bananas delicious Doenjang Tuscan White Bean Soup on my Instastory! This is Italorean cuisine at its finest guys. This is what happens when you open your mind, go outside your comfort zone, and decide to go on a date with someone who is not the same color as you, has a completely different background from you, and likes to say "get 'chigae' with it" when I tell him I'm making doenjang chigae. @music.and.movement

One of the first things I experimented with when I went vegan was making my own nondairy cheese. Of all the things that I gave up when I went vegan, cheese was probably the hardest. Luckily for me, @kenjilopezalt over at @seriouseats is a food genius who happens to dabble in vegan recipe creation. He had a recipe for vegan cheese sauce that was so good, every person I fed it to could not believe it was not real cheese! Well, you guys know me: I always like to Koreanize everything. With a few substitutions, I modified Kenji's brilliant recipe to make a Kimchi Mac 'n Cheese. I haven't had it for awhile, but with a birthday right around the corner.... 😋😋😋
