So, when someone says "home cooking" or "comfort food" what comes to your mind? Fried chicken...mashed potatoes...apple pie?
Well, growing up in a multi-cultural household, my definition of home cooking is a bit different. Mom is South Korean (hence the name Kimchee Chronicles) and dad is white. I've never been a big meat and potatoes kind of girl, I've always been more of a fish and rice kind of girl.
My mother is an UH-flippin-mazing cook. Whatever cuisine it is, it is delish! Of course nothing compares to her homeland food. Also, she used to be a baker so she would always bring home pies, bread, cookies and as well as the recipes. No wonder I've got a some extra junk in my trunk.
She is always cooking my favorites foods when I go home and visit. I just wanted to share just a bit of what I get to eat when I go home.
Kimchi, a staple in my Korean diet:
Seafood Noodle Soup (noodles made from scratch):
It is still very strange thinking that I own my own home, car and have a "grown-up" job. Whenever I visit my parents, I still feel like that 10 year old girl running in for dinner and finding some good ol' down home cooking.
Have a Fun Weekend.
