Produce! Produce! Produce!

2017-06-14T18:02:19-07:00

Imagine a night when the family is fed, the house is clean, the children aren't bickering, and you have the rest of the night to relax. You draw a hot bath, you even use your "good" bath salts. You enter the bliss, let the water envelope you, you slowly begin to feel the world's weight come off your shoulders. Ahhhhhh......



One Kimchi Jjigae Recipe to Rule Them All

2016-10-04T10:21:09-07:00

Long time no talk, Kimchi Mamas! Fall is here, my favorite time of the year! In my house, that means a return to rich, warm, comfort food that sticks to your ribs and makes you want to kiss your mama. (And various fantasies of someone coating me in spices, searing me on all sides, and cooking me low and slow...



Midlife?

2016-08-25T06:07:34-07:00

Hi there Kimchi Mamas!!! How are things going? Things are going alright here in the Choi family. I turned 40 this year and I kind of am really liking the older me. I feel so mature! Can you tell? So mature! Right? =) In all seriousness, I actually do feel like I am just barely starting to get this thing...

Home is nowhere for this Kimchimama

2016-06-02T17:33:12-07:00

John Steinbeck was my first literary love as an ESL gal. I finally read my first serious fiction at 19 years of age because my then boyfriend(first love), Mark, gently but persistently made many books of different genres appear on my lap. I rejected all of them until he brought me “In Dubious Battle” by Steinbeck and I fell madly...



Why I am with Hillary Clinton

2016-05-10T19:00:58-07:00

When I was just a toddler I was adopted by a childless couple. My father who had a deep distaste for women resented my personality in every way. I grew up never knowing what to do or how to behave in front of him or around him since the punches and poundings came at me with not a consistent origin...



Hello from Nancy!

2016-04-19T14:59:02-07:00

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time. I have been working on learning, growing and healing many aspects of my life. One thing I am loving learning is knowing how to find gems in my imperfections. Growing up Korean means knowing too well how to be self critic. Some aspects of that are good. I love growing. But some of...



Time of My Own

2015-12-11T10:12:29-08:00

Growing up as an immigrant kid, I watched my parents struggle a lot. They worked painfully long, labor-intensive hours, often more than 14 hours a day with no real breaks, six days a week. They could never catch up on their sleep and had no time to spare. I remember their exhaustion stretching out like a rope of molten glass,...



Letter from Dad

2015-12-13T21:18:02-08:00

My dad wrote me a letter from a detention center. He's waiting to find out if he will be deported or not. He's a permanent resident and broke some laws so the government is trying to deport him to Korea. Here is a translated version of his letter. Praise be to Jesus. I'm glad to hear that your family are...



How am I supposed to teach my daughter to love her body when I hate mine?

2015-05-13T10:55:12-07:00

My daughter is this smart, funny, angry, beautiful ‘tween. Too young to be an adult and too old to be a child. She plays soccer and games online. She is as comfortable alone in her room reading her latest manga book as she is giggling with her gaggle of gal pals in the living room. But as most moms know...
