Dried Laver Muchim

김무침, GimMuChim

Hi everyone! Today, I will make a delicious side-dish that brings back my childhood memories. My hometown is near the southern sea in South Korea. Thanks to that, I’ve grown up with many different kinds of fresh fish, sea plants, and seafood. Among them, I especially liked sea plants such as dried laver, sea mustard, etc. When you buy dried laver (aka nori) in the USA, you usually buy small amounts such as 20 or 30 sheets. However, in Korea, we buy 100 sheets in one pack and moms buy several packs at a time. You can make kimbap, soup, or just have a seasoned and toasted side-dish with it. If my mom had any leftover laver, she made this tasty side-dish with it. It is called GimMuchim in Korean. Simply mixing this toasted laver with a special sauce makes a delicious side-dish. I made it for my kids and they enjoyed it as much as I did when I was little. Try it someday. :)

Rosemary Potato Soup

Hi everyone! How are you? I hope everybody is great. I’ve been busy settling down with my family after we moved to a new state. Things are less busy now, and I’m back in my kitchen. yay~~~ So, I will try to post more recipes now. I’m sorry for my slow posting and I appreciate all your comments, so please feel free to talk to me through my blog. The cooler weather is bringing in soup season. So today, I want to share a simple, yet delicious, homemade rosemary potato soup. My husband bought rosemary potato soup in a store and really liked it. I tried making it at home. It is not quite the same as the one from the store, but my husband was happy with the result. The creamy rosemary flavored soup with chunky vegetables is too good to miss for this time of year. Try it someday. :)
