Happy Birthday, Migi's Kitchen!


Happy birthday, Migi's Kitchen aka KoreanHomeCooking.com! It was about this time of the year last year when I first came across the idea of Korean food blog and launched KoreanHomeCooking.com from my mac. Since then, I enjoyed cooking Korean foods more than ever, and so did my mom and mother-in-law. For the past year, more than 15,000 people visited this blog and the average number of visitors is now well above 100 people a day from literally all over the world. And it keeps increasing every day. (Any ad sponsors out there?) So far, I have had visitors from all five continents, and it truly makes me feel connected world wide. Thanks all for your support and love for Korean foods and KoreanHomeCooking.com. I'll try to make each post better than the previous one. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestion.

I made the fruit tart above using the recipe from this site; I only substituted most ingredients with organic items. By the way, after reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver recently, I have become a big supporter of organic and locally grown foods. It's supposed to be good for your health as well as the environment!

I think your blog is fantastic. I find your recipes and instructions so clear and AUTHENTIC. My mom tries to teach me but she goes so fast that it's hard to follow. I'm so grateful to you. You are an invaluable resource.

Hello, I just found your blog as we are just starting to eat Kimchi because of it's healthfulness and I wanted to start making more Korean dishes as well. I was wondering if you could give a little tutorial on how to make the perfect cup of green tea. I can never make it taste like they do in the Asian restaurants and am wondering what I am doing wrong. Thanks!

Hi, C&C -
The tea served in Korean restaurants are not green tea. They are most likely roasted corn tea or roasted barley tea. I'll soon post how to make these tea. The green tea served in Japanese restaurants are often times green tea with roasted brown rice which adds very mild flavor to the tea. I hope this is helpful.
