Cooking Cooking: Kimchi soup

Hi everyone!

Here is a blogpost from me, trying to make Kimchi soup for the first time!
I used the recipe from Maangchi that you can find here.

Let’s get started!

The ingredients that Maangchi used were:
– 1 package of tofu (14 ounces:396 gams), cut into bite sized cubes
– 2 cups of chopped kimchi
- ½ pound of pork shoulder (or pork belly), cut into bite sized pieces
– 2 Tablespoons of hot pepper paste
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
– 5 cups of water
– 2 stalks of green onions, chopped

All the ingredients were chopped, so I combined the kimchi, hot pepper paste, kimchi juice, pork, and sugar in a pan.

I added 1 liter of water even though 5 cups of water is more than that (but I had a 1 liter pan) and brought everything to a boil and cooked it for 30 minutes.
After that I added the tofu and lowe...

Cooking Cooking: NA NA NA TAKOYAKI

When I was surfing on the internet I found takoyaki mix powder. I thought OMG NOW I CAN MAKE TRY TO MAKE IT BY MYSELF :D. But the problem was that I didn’t have a pan to make it in. I came with the idea to make it with a popcake maker, and I ordered the mix. The next problem was the pop cake maker because I didn’t have one. But this year ( I ordered the mix last year around December) I got one for my birthday.

Now I want to share my takoyaki experience with you!

If you don’t know what takoyaki is, takoyaki is a popular Japanese dumpling.
It’s made of batter, tenkasu (tempura scraps), beni shoga (red pickled ginger), and aonegi (green onion), topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, aonori (green laver), and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

I don’t like fish and octopus (but I wan...
