If you know me at all, you know I am kinda obsessed with ramen. Ok maybe not kinda. I’m always scouring all over NYC for the newest ramen joints to try. But there is almost nothing as perfect as the Spicy Ramen at Totto Ramen!
It was raining and overcast in NYC yesterday morning, which always makes me want some kind of comfort food. I always love shortbread cookies because they’re not overly sweet. I decided to whip up a batch but I wanted to experiment a bit and add a little surprise. So the surprise? The cookies have cheese in them!
Oh most holy of food! There is no food that better represents the heart and soul of Korean people than kimchi. It’s sassy, pungent, earthy, and will smack you in the head sometimes. I can’t live without it!
And there is no one on the planet that makes better kimchi than my mom. I will challenge any chef, any home cook or even anyone else’s mom. that’s also why I never tried to make it myself, there’s no way I could beat my mom’s kimchi. But I decided it was finally time I should give it a try. My favorite kind of kimchi is cucumber kimchi (oi sobaegi), so I’m gonna start with that. My mom makes it with cucumbers she grows in her garden. For me, cucumbers from Fairway Market will have to do.
