I’m starting to regret the decision of giving myself just a week to study hardcore for the registered dietitian exam. There’s wayy too much information to absorb (4 domains total…I can’t seem to move beyond the foodservice and management portion), and I get so easily distracted. I guess that’s what a month long vacation will do to ya. In any case, I need to FOCUS and press on because the exam is happening no matter what!

Ratatouille with Poached Eggs

I wasted no time starting up my CSA box again this past week after returning from a month long vacation in Korea, and I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to fill my crisper with the freshest, in-season produce that nature has to offer.

Korean Red Bean Mochi Cake

You may be thinking…What in the world is Korean red bean mochi cake? And red beans in dessert? Hmm..weird yet oddly intriguing. If so, you’re not alone. When I first made this for my non-Korean friends, I was met with a lot of nonverbal resistance – raised eyebrows, nose scrunching.. you know how it goes. Their […]

Summer in Korea – Part 2

Korea

This past week was very different from the first. We’ve made our way down to the coastal city of Busan (unfortunately that video will be in the next week’s video post), where we get to enjoy views of the ocean everyday from my in-laws’ beachside apartment. Life is very different here in the southern part […]
