’twas the night before Valentine’s day…

March 1, 2012 § 3 Comments

This was probably one of my most memorable Valentine’s celebration, especially since we are not big on “holidays”.  My favorite roommate made one of my all-time favorite Korean street foods:  spicy Korean rice cakes and a side of pan-fried dumplings.

A tasty snack:  fresh rice cakes can be eaten just by dipping it in a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil and sesame seeds.

The pictures say it all—–your mouth will be watering by the end of it…..

    is there an “Ann’s Melange” cooking channel on youtube? my wife and i would totally watch it. this is definitely one of the best korean cooking blogs around. i don’t understand why there are not more korean restaurants around in chicago, especially with the way koreans have absolutely mastered the art of cooking beef and complimenting it with the perfect things. i mean just read the review on bulgogi below. ok i probably screwed up that spelling, but look at the things it’s mixed with, absolutely mouth watering. ok now onto this post, is that cabbage mixed in (the purple)? oh one other thing, is it possible to attached a ‘thing to pick up’ list for each post. we would love to be able to click on that and print it and bring it to the grocery store. there is a korean grocery store here that we can go to if not everything is available in the grocery store we usually go to. this does seem like an awesome snack. i’ve tried the pan-fried dumplings before, those are fantastic. can’t remember if i’ve tried the spicy rice cakes before.

    This looks so delicious…..I want I want I want…. How healthy is this????

    • Most of the food we make is healthy and if not, then I try to use good ingredients to compensate. But keep in mind that these rice cakes are loaded with carbohydrates. These rice cakes are made with few ingredients: ground up rice, water and salt (I think). Plus, I like this dish with fish cakes (which can be left out). So other than that, they are healthy as long as its eaten in small portions. This is actully a side dish, but I eat it as my main (and only) dish. Haha!!
