Simple Guacamole Recipe

Being stuck in the kitchen with your loved ones really can be (it is, for my family) a great way to bond! While I was slicing and chopping, Valerie assembled the bits and shreds I had prepared.

Let’s Cook 비빔밥 ! (Bibimbap Recipe)

Valerie, “Let’s cook 비빔밥!” We did a last minute shopping for the ingredients and many were not available.

The word literally … Continue reading

The Bonding Place

I love home-cooked meals… As you know, my children are young adults and I do not get to see them for most part of the day. Thus, it is rare but we do cook at home (late dinners usually after 10pm and so most of our meals are easy to prepare) and when that happens, … Continue reading

Stake On Steaks

Since my children started working, eating at home has become less frequent. My blog which started noting recipes has evolved to sharing of food and restaurant experiences, and photography (a hobby I’ve picked up after blogging). Ocassionally, we do eat very late dinners at home when Valerie is in the mood to cook but the … Continue reading
