Seoul Street Foods Seeing Culinary Rebirth?

Sin-Free Stewed Apples

When it’s cold in the evening, there’s nothing better than a warming dessert. Well, actually, perhaps the best thing is a guilt-free warming dessert. I’m a huge fan of apple pie, apple crumble, apple strudel, basically anything apple-flavoured. But, it wouldn’t be too healthy to eat these every night. And let’s face it- the best part of these puddings is the sweet apple filling. So I decided to recreate my favourite apple desserts, minus the unhealthy pastry part.

What was I left with? A completely innocent apple treat, which you can enjoy any night of the week. After all, according to that famous saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor away…

Here is the recipe for my sin-free stewed apples. Simple, quick and delicious (I apologize for the lack of photos, I got too excited whilst cooking/ eating to remember to take any).

Bob Burger: Korea’s Rice Burger

When I was teaching in Deokso, which is nearly two hours away from where I live, I barely had time to prepare my lunch at home, so I would usually grab a bite to eat during my break time or buy some food to go. I would either get two different flavors of 삼각김밥 (samgak gimbap or triangle-shaped rice) or those four-layered sandwiches in the convenience store that had weird flavors but, nevertheless, tasted good. They would be enough to keep my stomach from growling for an hour or two, but not for the entire five or six hours that I was working.

Cooking Time: Cous Cous!

Finally another cooking time video! It’s been a long time since we’ve done a cooking video, even though they’re our most popular posts by far! :P In this episode I share one of our favorite meals! It’s easy to make, delicious, healthy, and a party pleaser! I often make it for potlucks and get togethers with friends. A lot of people have requested this video and recipe, so here it is!

Ingredients you’ll need:
cous cous

salt
olive oil
tomatoes
cucumber
bouillon cubes


Making Cake in a Mug with Middle School Korean Girls

English camp comes at the start of Summer and Winter breaks.  It generally lasts about 10 days and the day usually ends before noon.  At least that's how it was at my school.  Camps are usually on the drab side as I'm left looking for activities that will keep the students engaged and showing up as camp wears on.  This time around, the English Department put together a much more fun and interesting schedule including trips to the English radio station, Gyung-Ju historical region of Korea, and English library.

In addition to this, I was asked to do a cooking class.  Now the irony of this is probably too difficult to put to words.  I'm one who has trouble boiling water and even run the risk of burning it if I wasn't careful.  Nonetheless, it's how I would roll for English Camp this summer.  Celebrity chef style.  The recipe I was asked to prepare with the students?  Cake in a Mug.
