Seorae Village – Little France in Seoul, South Korea

For our 1 year wedding anniversary, we went up to Seoul for a nice, relaxing weekend together. We decided to go to Seorae village in the Banpo neighborhood of Seoul. About 600 French expats live in this corner of the city, that is nicknamed Montmarte for its location on top of a hill. It includes a French school, some french brand name stores like L’Occitane, real bakeries, with REAL bread and REAL cheese!! By “real” I mean not Korean. There are lot of things that Korea gets right, but bread and cheese is NOT one of them!


Dear Korea #092 - Some Things are Better Left Alone

Oh jeez, I hope you guys don’t hate me yet. I do apologize for being a couple of days late with this strip. You know how us old people get. I’m already starting to lose track of time.


Going Gluten-Free in Korea (I’m trying.)


Unbelievable Pillowy Egg “Bread”

Bread is a treat that I generally do not include in my diet. It was never allowed on my plan during my competition training, and so it’s not something I’ve really reincorporated into my life. Don’t get me wrong- I think bread is incredibly delicious! But here, in Korea, they don’t even have the bread I would choose anyways. Korean bread is all that white, sweet, processed, insulin-spiking stuff. Not something I want.

Enter my egg bread.


Hummus Heaven at High Street Market

“You look like you could use an almond milk coffee smoothie with real mint chocolate bits,” the man behind the counter caught me off-guard as I stood at the entrance of the store wide-eyed and drooling. “I can make it for you now and you can enjoy it while you shop.” I nodded, unable to verbalize my gratitude. “Did he just read my mind?” I thought. Maybe he did, or maybe he just saw me for the sucker that I am, regardless, the drink was beyond amazing and I couldn’t help but make a few annoying slurping sounds with my straw as I managed to enjoy each bit of the almond milk deliciousness as I browsed all that High Street Market had to offer.


Cooking on a Sunday Night

Before I write about what I made this weekend, I want to ask all of you reading this to PLEASE send me your favorite cupcake recipe with a great fluffy frosting. I am dying to make cupcakes!!! (and eat them) But please no crazy ingredients, I live in South Korea and not everything is as easy to find.

XOXOXO

Man you must think, she makes a lot of bread. Every Sunday we are out of Bread. Adam eats a lot of it :)


Toasty Treats in Korea

Toast!  I eat it for breakfast back at home, but in Korea fancy ♥ GIANT SLICES OF BREAD COVERED IN DELICIOUSNESS ♥  has become a very popular dessert or snack to order at one of the dozens upon dozens of cafes here in Seoul! Hurray!
