I have always wanted to cook. The Rachael Ray type or perhaps Giada de Laurentiis ( whom for a while I thought i most likely resemble, until i woke up from a lovely dream!) – never have followed recipes to a T but always enjoyed a pinch or a dash of something this and that. Lately, with the cool weather and occasional rains even if we’re expecting summer soon in our place, I had Jjamppong ( a spicy Koren soup) on my mind. I decided to dish out the styro-packed soup of a local brand and googled for something that’s really authentic and home-made. Alas , i found one ! This website is very educational, complete with a step-by-step video. A rookie would surely love it.

I had all the ingredients on hand so i whisked off and prepare the hot dish. Had the chili pepper bottle on table just to make sure my kids can enjoy a bowlful sans the spicy taste. And viola! my own version of Jjamppong didn’t disappoint! It surely warmed the tummies, and more importantly , it warmed the hearts ~ the family loved it!
