Tuesday, April 08, 2014      10 comments

Pork. How I love thee, let me count the ways. Many of you have probably never eaten fresh fennel. I hadn't until recently either, mostly because it's often described as having an anise-like licorice-y flavor, of which I am not a fan. I tri... Read more

Ok, I'm supposed to get a visit from Aunt Flow starting this evening. My anxiety is *always* higher the few days before, and during ovulation is practically non-existent, so I *know* it's hormones, but why does ordering food at work give me such... Read more

I've never cooked a whole fish before. I've cooked fillets, steaks, chunks, salt cod, fish stick, etc, but never a whole fish. So imagine my delight when I saw Norwegian cod on sale at H Mart (Korean Grocery Store) for $4.49/lb. Now I love cod, ... Read more
