Home Cookin'

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):


Bread Candy:
Lastly, but definitely not least, of course, rice. Mmmm, rice.  Nothing is better than a huge bowl of steaming, sticky, white rice.  Yes, yes, I know it's not good for you, but oh my goodness, it tastes so good! If you want to know how to cook good Korean rice follow this link. 

So, I guess home cooking or comfort food is wherever your home is, I hope you have enjoyed my version.  Maybe you can share some of your favorite home cooking.

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.
