Kalbi, Korean Style Beef Short Ribs

Yesterday, the boy (my son D.) and I drove into Oakland and went to Koreana Plaza to do a little shopping.  Ever since my Husband and I lived in Thailand, frequenting Asian markets is one of my favorite thing to do.  I guess it reminds me of our time abroad.  Not to mention, the Asian… Continue reading Kalbi, Korean Style Beef Short Ribs

Crispy Potato Tart

On Saturday, we celebrated Father’s Day early.  I asked the Husband if he wanted to bbq and we could have my parents over.  I told him to see if his Mom and his brother and sis-in-law wanted to come too.  It has been really lovely weather lately so I figured we could eat outside and… Continue reading Crispy Potato Tart
