My Foray Into Korean Food

mommy sauces

Facts you may not know about me. . .I live with my in-laws and they’re Korean! Okay, that was fast.

Anyways, I’ve been attempting to cook Korean food for my in laws, particularly my father in law, who generally only eats Korean food. I’ve attempted a few dishes, following recipes to the T.

One of the biggest issues I’ve had has been trying to get all the sauces and ingredients correctly. In case you didn’t know, Korean food focuses a lot on sauces. Whether it’s in a soup, stew, meat dish or even over bibimbap, there’s sauce everywhere.

I’m almost too excited to share this with you guys so I’m just going to jump right in!

I’ve found the PERFECT bag for summer. Yes, you read that right. Perfect.

Not only is it beautifully nautical with gorgeous rope handles, it can hold TWO bottles of wine.

And by holding 2 bottles of wine, I don’t mean that you place two bottles of wine in the bag. No no no no no. I mean that you can pour two bottles of wine INTO the bag and, using the attached spout, bring it with you to all your summer activities!

   NEW YORK WOMANnew york womanI was born and raised in New Jersey, but New York was always my destination. I remember when I was a kid and anytime people would visit, my parents and I would always drive them into New York and show them all the tourist things, ending with a feisty dinner in Chinatown. When I was going to college in New Jersey, NYC was a quick 30 minute train ride away. During the summers on my days off, I would take the train into NYC, armed with a fully charged iPod, and walk from 34th street to Central Park, letting my music create a soundtrack to the city.
