Korean Soju Cocktail Recipe

Since it is St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to share a cocktail recipe. Our fridge is constantly stocked with a few basics: milk, yogurt, string cheese, eggs, strawberries and soju! What is soju you ask? Well, soju which is packaged in a distinct bright green bottle, is Korea’s national liquor and can be found right next to the kimchi in any Korean household and social gathering (proof here). Soju is an alcohol typically made from rice, wheat or barley, but modern producers often replace rice with other starches such as potatoes, sweet potatoes or tapioca. It is a clear liquid, comparable to vodka with a slightly sweeter taste. It’s usually taken as a shot however, just...

World’s Strangest Hangover Cures


From hot saunas to sour pickles, every culture has its preferred morning-after remedy

One of the oldest, most common miseries known to man goes by a variety of names. What the medical community recognizes as veisalgia (from the Greek root algos, for “pain and grief”), Germans refer to as katzenjammer (“wailing cats”); when Scottish poet Robert Burns described feeling “ramfeezled and forswunk” in the late 18th century, he was invoking the same malady that modern-day French-speakers callgueule de bois ("wooden mouth"). Here in the U.S., of course, we just call it a hangover. Virtually every consenting adult has suffered at least a touch of this distress at one time or another. And while the scientific explanations for the condition vary, the symptoms are almost universal: headache, upset...

Gochujang Sloppy Joes


Sloppy Joes is one of the well known American classic dish.

I understand the term “sloppy” in the title. This is a kind of dish that can be prepared quick and easy, and it can be a little messy when you eat with hands. However why does it have a name of “Joe”? Why not Bob or David?  Just simply curious!

Anyway, I want to give a little twist to this all American classic sandwich by adding a Korean flavor.  Yes, this is Gochujang Sloppy Joes!  Gochujang will add a very gentle spicy kick and you will love how it binds all the flavors so nicely.

I made this recipe for JayOne and you will find the same recipe on their site...

Recipe: Cheesy Rice Balls


It seems like I always have a ton of leftover rice. Duh!

So here I am throwing a simple yet very tasty snack, appetizer, or finger food that you can make easily with leftover rice. You have to use short grain rice, though. You will need the stickiness from the short grain.


Here is my leftover rice cooked with some quinoa seeds. (I like to add quinoa when I cook my rice. Quinoa doesn’t have much flavor so they don’t alter the flavor of rice too much, and I love the texture they add)

This is a great time to use any leftover vegetables that you might have in your fridge.  I used green onion and a...
