My name is Holly.
I am the chief editor, photographer, writer, recipe developer, cook, CEO & COO, and/or any other title you can call, behind this blog.
I am a proud full-time housewife who likes to cook and feed.
I am a Korean native, which means Korean is my first language. However I write this blog in English from head to toe and I bet you will find many grammar errors and misspelled words. I do hope that this doesn’t bother you much. If it does, let me know in kind words and I will do my best to correct.
I was born and raised in a very southern part of South Korea, a lovely fishing town called “Tong-Young”. I left Korea over 20 years ago to study in the U.S. But ever since I married to my wonderful husband the rest is history. We traveled and lived in many countries. We currently live in
Malaysia northern VA with two beautiful children and a dog.
Perhaps my passion of cooking came from traveling around the world and the exposure I had with cultures and, of course, their food. I respect, admire, and enjoy the cuisines from all over the world and my desire of trying their food never ceases. But at the end of the day when I need my comfort I always look for Korean food, the food of my home country.
I started my blog in blogger platform in March 2010, but changed to self-hosted wordpress as of May 2012. So you might find some old posts doesn’t fit well in terms of configuration. It will take some time for me to re-edit all the past posts but I will get it done slowly but surely.
I started blogging as a keepsake of my personal recipes to inherit to my children. So someday when I am no longer with them, they can remember the food they had eaten at home, and be able to make themselves. That’s why I made my blog more tutorial. This is my gift for them.
However, it will be a great honor if my recipes can inspire other people on the planet. It is awesome to be able to communicate with people through food. So, cook up some Korean food tonight. I will show you how.
Welcome to my world of Korean cooking and beyond!
