Growing up in a Korean household was amazing. Every meal was Korean or had some kind of Korean flare to it (like eating kimchi with a hamburger and fries). 

After visiting South Korea and Japan, I’ve grown to love Asian food even more. I love the spiciness, all the flavor, and the way food brings people together. 

I used to hate cooking and now I enjoy it! Cooking Asian food is a lot of fun because you get to try out new spices and flavors. 

P.S. Save money on groceries with Ibotta. Ibotta is a free app that lets you redeem coupons for cash back. I’ve been using it for years and love how easy it is to use. You can sign up for Ibotta here.
