Mu Namul (Radish Side Dish)

1 pound Korean radish (mu/moo)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
salt to taste ( soy has enough salt in it for me)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds


 1.Wash and dry the radish. Peel the skin if necessary. You don't need to peel if the skin is smooth and clean.Cut the radish into match sticks or shed it on the side of a box grater.

2.Heat a large skillet with a tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the radish  with the optional  soy sauce, salt, and garlic and cook for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring well, until the radish  become wilted and translucent.

3.Add 1/4 cup of water. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover, and cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning and/or cooking time as needed. Right before turning off the heat, add the chopped scallion, sesame oil, and sesame seeds, and stir well. Serve warm.

The Pinks

It's been SO cold in Florida ( nights in the 20's) and my friends back north have been slammed with snow, I thought I would give you a smile.

This is Ae-yun and yours truly. Her  daughter has something on her phone to add the cute little blush and bows.

If you watch Korean dramas or see photos of Asian people they almost always flash the V when their photo is taken.

Small Cheese Cake

I don't know why they call this a cheesecake. Cheesecake to me is a cake. This sure is a pie recipe. Whatever, it's fantastic!

Polly loves cheesecake and since it was her birthday thought this would make her happy. Her friend was dying to have a slice :-)

The recipe is from Rita's Recipes.



1 C graham cracher crumbs
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 T sugar
( I did the easy thing and bought a pre- made crust)


8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2  cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash salt (didn't use)
2 eggs


1  cup sour cream
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

If you want easy- buy a premade crust. To make the crust crush the graham crackers. Good way is to add them to a food processor. Add the crushed crumbs to a large bowl and add the 1/2 of stick of melted butter and the 2 tablespoons sugar and mix well.  Press crumbs into a 9 inch pie plate.

For the filling add 8 ounces of soft cream cheese to a large bowl. With an electric mixer add the sugar, lemon juice,vanilla, salt if you are adding it and beat until light and fluffy.Beat in one egg at a time. I always take the eggs out and let them come to room temp before adding them to the mixture. Don't over beat. 

Pour the creamcheese mixture into the graham cracker shell and bake for about 25 minutes.

While the pie is in the oven make the topping

Mix 1 cup sour cream, sugar and vanilla.

When the pie is done carefully remove it from the oven and spread the topping over the top of the "cheesecake" and pop it back in the oven for another minute.

Take it out after the minute and let it cool.
