In the summer of 2016, I was left with a staggering $70,000 debt in my hands. So, I did what every 20-something year old with that kind of debt would do: I crawled under my blanket and wept.

I was stuck with this debt for almost two years. Every time I tried paying it back, the interest rate would eat up my payment until I was back to square one. This was a vicious cycle that left me emotionally paralyzed and depressed for months.

Then one day, I decided that enough was enough. I figured that there had to be a better way to pay back my debt, even if I didn’t have cash in hand. So I decided to read up on personal finance books and learn how to better tackle my problems. …

If the weather outside is frightful, look no further than a warm bowl of Korean kimchi dumpling soup. It’s super satisfying thanks to juicy and spicy kimchi-pork filled dumplings and garnishes of thinly-cut eggs and roasted sesame seeds, and it can be must be loaded with sirloin meat and splashes of sesame oil. The kimchi gives it a nice punch of spicy flavors, and the beef and pork a satisfying savory taste. It’s simple, easy to make, and oh-so addictive.

My mom swears by the magical elements of this soup–that it can heal your ailments and lift your spirit (at least that’s what I believed after having eaten it through all the fevers and head cold as a kid). Aside from being a miracle medicine, I am convinced that it’s healthy and good for the body, and the soul, and for people who love the simple things in life. …

Jjimdak has been on my to-make list for some time now, so I’m really excited to share this recipe with you!

Jjimdak is a braised chicken dish that’s made by slowly simmering chicken in soy sauce, vegetables, and other nutritious ingredients. I love this dish as it’s super savory and garlicky at the same time.

What is jjimdak, and how was it made?

I learned about this dish after taking a trip to the ancient Korean city of Andong where Jjimdak was first created. According to the town’s folklore, jjimdak was created in the 80s as a response to the rapidly growing fried chicken franchises that were springing up in the city and around the country. As such, jjimdak was marketed as an alternative to fried chicken and focused on ingredients that were wholesome and healthy, not to mention traditional. Today, jjimdak is enjoyed for its energy-boosting ingredients and delicious taste. …

For this recipe, I’m going to teach you how to make Rose tteokbokki, or Korean rice cakes, with beef brisket. It’s similar to the classic tteokbokki dish, but with a little twist.

Rose tteokbokki follows the exact same recipe as tteokbokki with the addition of heavy cream and milk. The resulting pink color is what gives it the name “Rose.”

For this recipe, I added a couple of my own ingredients, such as marinara sauce, beef briskets, quail eggs, and perilla leaves. …
