Some of my friends have told me that when they walk into a Korean grocery store, they turn around and walk right back out because they’re beyond intimidated. I can get that. When everything is written in another language and you don’t know the difference between one leafy green to the next, it’s scary. But don’t fret my pet, that’s why we’re dedicating Season 4 of Bits & Pieces Cooking Show entirely to Korean inspired recipes! Read more
On days 12-13 of our Korea Trip, we did and ate so much, but one memory that stuck out to me was watching the street food vendors put on a show. I felt like everywhere I turned, there was a cute Korean guy scooping ice cream with a wink and a smile, or pulling strands of honey and confectioners sugar by hand to make candy for blushing
suckers tourists like me. I know that it’s a genius marketing strategy and it totally works! Yup… I bought a box of candy. Hey, but at least it was tasty! Read more
It’s been a week since Joe and I attended BlogHerFood15 in Chicago, and I’ve had some time to process it now. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s the world’s largest conference for food content creators, and it’s held in a different city each year. This year, it was at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, and Joe and I both went because we were invited to be speakers at a panel called, “Best Practices to Make Great Food Videos.” Read more
When we decided to start this whole “YouTube thing,” I couldn’t wait to see the day where we’d be taken seriously. Our friends and family were like, “say what?” It was a pipe dream that Joe and I decided to chase after about two years ago, and we’re just starting to be affirmed for our leap of faith now.

What do Sarah Michelle Gellar and I have in common? We’re both speaking at BlogHerFood15 in Chicago! This is a MAJORLY HUGE food blogger conference held in a different city every year, and this time it’s in the Windy City! It’s a 2-day bonanza extravaganza from Nov. 6-7, 2015, and Joe and I will be speaking on a panel together there about food media! There will be tons of fellow food bloggers and experts there, such as Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman!
It’s really ironic that I almost missed out on the meal we considered to be one of our top 5 best meals of our entire Korea trip. This was definitely the best meal we had up to this point and we were in Korea for over a week. I was busy doing work and once in a while, I opted to stay home to edit vlogs or write blog entries. The thing about our line of work is that even when you’re on vacation, you’re never truly on vacation. You’re actually working all the time.
