This Korean-American mama was raised on kimchi, married a smokin’ Mexican/Italian/Irish/Dutch man and had two beautiful spicy kids. I grew up with a mother for whom the phrase “made from scratch” and “cooking” are needlessly redundant, and as a result, food and cooking has been irrevocably linked with my psyche.    I love to make family recipes and pretty much any other kind of cuisine, training my kids at a very early age to eat everything from squid to squash. 

You can email me at onespicymama at gmail dot com.  Thanks for visiting my blog about cooking, parenting, and life – come back often!

    hello onespicymama (cute name, btw),

    i had a great time browsing your blog.

    plenty of delicious recipes to try out when time permits and wanna take this opportunity to thank you for sharing them.

    i’m particularly attracted to the Library Thing you have under one of your widgets. tried as i could, i was not able to put up my own recent read in my blog (i.e. got as far as adding the “chiclet” only – blush, blush).

    so, if you could be so kind, please advise how you got it done in yours?

    all the best in your bloggings!

    Cluck ^_^

    OMG! I am drooling over the Korean BBQ. I gotta try some of your recipes.

    I have known this lady for 2 years now. She is a great writer, cook and wonderful mom.

    PS: Can you try some other Asian cuisine or some European food?

    Try the SERRADURA- Portuguese Dessert. I am sure your 2 kids will love them! *wink*
