About Me

Updated:  23 January 2016

Let me just start out by saying, my last update was 2014?  WOW!

Anyone who has ever had a child may know that time quickly accelerates like you are in warp speed.  It seems like just yesterday our son was born but here we are almost 21 months later and though I haven’t been cooking as much it is my goal to get back to my recipes this year despite the fact that my life seems to revolve around picking up toys and play dates, ha ha!

For awhile, I was focusing on my homemade baby foods but for awhile now, my son has been eating whatever we eat and then some!  He is a great eater and as time is proving his palate definitely takes after me.  He loves everything and can tolerate spicy foods quite well!  I made a kimchi pancake and he gobbled it up.

Welcome to any new followers and thank you to all the foodies who have been with me for awhile (despite my hiatus).

Cheers and continued happy eating!

Hi, my name is Fay and welcome to my food blog Korean-Eyes; a blog about all things food related as seen through my Korean eyes.  I was born in Seoul, Korea and was adopted as an infant and moved to the States.  I have 4 sisters, 2 brothers, 5 brother/sister-in-laws, 12 nieces and nephews and the most wonderful Husband and newborn son.  I come from a family that is British, American, Korean, and Vietnamese – we are a very colorful family! I have always had fond memories of growing up and watching my parents in the kitchen.  My Mom always says I was stealing all the cucumbers out of her salad before it reached the table, and by the way, I am still guilty of this act.  4+ years ago, I married the love of my life.  Our life together has been one of travel, adventures, and food.  His job took us to Thailand just months after we married and we lived there for almost 21 months.  From 2010 to 2012, we spent our time traveling around Asia, eating where the locals ate and learning about Thai food and all of the gorgeous, and once foreign, ingredients that make up Thai food.  Ever since then, ever since my Thai cooking classes in Bangkok, I have been really interested in exploring Asian cuisine…and to my surprise, the intimidation that is Asian cuisine, disappeared once you learned and deconstructed the mystery.

Above are just some of my favorite pictures from our travels. I am by no means a professional chef, nor a professional writer but I love to cook and I love how food has become a massive community where it can be shared with a click of a button.

I once saw someone post, “don’t eat to live, live to eat.” Love it!  I hope you like my blog as much as I like doing it.  Please feel free to subscribe, share, make suggestions and love it.  I blog about dishes I cook for my Husband and I, friends, and family.  A lot of the dishes posted with be Asian in nature but you will see a variety of delicious recipes!

  1. Thanks for coming over to Chew Out Loud, and for following… so happy you did! 🙂 Love your perspective here, and loving the yummy Asian recipes!! Keep those coming, Fay! Can’t wait to see more. In LA, we used to have such easy access to all Asian foods. Sadly, not so in MN, which is why I have to make my own 😉 Your travels sound awesome!

    1. Thanks so much! I very fortunate to have so many great Asian ingredients available. I love how food brings total strangers together! Cheers and happy eating!
