김밥이 맛있어요

I’ve been craving 김밥 (romanized: kimbap) for a while but I was too lazy to go to a Korean supermarket. Plus, I’ve been meaning to learn how to make 김밥.

I grabbed recipes from thekitchn.com, seriouseats.com, and maangchi.com, and blended them together.

I used other filling ingredients such as dried pork shreds, or 肉鬆 (pin yin: rou1song4), and kale. I would have liked spinach but my mom has been obsessed with kale. I also used brown rice instead of white rice, which actually doesn’t taste any differently once you mix in rice vinegar and all those other ingredients. I definitely want to try making this again after discovering that it isn’t too difficult to make. Plus it’ll give me a chance to practice how to julienne vegetables.

Cream Puff

I made these a while ago but never got around to making a post about it. I thought I would share with you this recipe for cream puffs I found over at steamykitchen. It’s a super simple recipe that even a monkey could follow.

The filling is Jell-o’s vanilla pudding instant mix, and I sprinkled powdered sugar over the cream puffs. I wanted to test out a pipping utensil I bought at Daiso, which I totally recommend for piping in fillings for cream puffs even if can get a bit messy when putting in the mix into the container.
