One of Korea’s most convenient foods is kim bap, which literally means seaweed wrapped rice. There are many types, but my favorite, apparently most liked by foreigners, is the Nude Kimbap. It’s wrapped with the rice outside, so it has rice instead of seaweed on the outside. Yum! Mainstay ingredients are yellow pickled radish, ham, carrot, egg and sometimes spinach. I like tuna kimbap too. It’s all good:-)
A very popular food in Korea….eel. Here’s a very informative post on eel in Korea from Soul of Seoul.
Fermented foods are highly nutritious. Great recipe for kimchi in this post. Thanks to Agrigirl for it!
What is old can sometimes make a better new. Of course, that is my own philosophy demonstrated by the dress that I recently wore to the Black and White ball but it was also the conclusion of a fascinating article Older, Better, Smaller produced by the Preservation Green Lab of National Trust for Historic Preservation.

This is a great experiment. I think Agrigirl’s family did a great job!
If I didn’t call this failure, it would be hypocritical. That said, I,m reporting back on the outcomes of our food stamp challenge. Challenge – it was. As a full-time working mom, could I feed my family of five, nutritious meals on a food stamp allocation of $30 per person per week?

This looks worth a try. Originally from Caroline at Gutsy.
So, my best friend Carissa has a gluten sensitivity and has such a hard time staying away from bread (I can’t blame her!). One of the things she loved to surprise me with was banana bread. So, I decided to make her a version that wouldn’t leave her with a tummy ache. Kaleidoscopefied of course: in this instance, that means with chocolate chips and walnuts! What is banana bread without chocolate chips, I mean really?
I originally found this recipe done by Caroline at Gutsy, to check out her recipe click here. I left the recipe base practically unchanged (left out the optional stevia) because, frankly, it was quite perfect! A nice level of sweetness without being too sweet. Coconut flour, which has a good amount of protein and fiber but low in carbs, is known to make baked goods a little dry and dense. Not so with this!…
