Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich

Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich

When I couldn’t decide between Korean fried chicken wings or a Chick-Fil-A burger, this Frankenstein monstrosity was spawned from the depths of my mind. Which is actually my stomach. I make these sweet Korean fried chicken wings on a monthly basis. When my arteries don’t […]

Japanese soy vinegar pickled cucumbers

Japanese soy vinegar pickled cucumbers

I wanted something a little different than the typical pickled cucumbers to accompany some Asian dishes I’ve been making. These Japanese pickles use a combination of soy sauce, vinegar, water and sugar. They are great as a simple cold side dish, or on top of […]
