And a lot easy to do it too.
And, OF COURSE!!!!!
Can not start anything with out kimchi! That’s me!! lol

Because I put lots of red flakes and the red flakes was hotter than the other one that I used to use.
I still love it though! Hehe
One of my new years resolutions is eating healthy.
I will try hard and probably I will come up with lots of healthy Asian recipes for you guys!!
GOOD LUCK ALL OF YOU!!!
