Hello everyone! I wanted to make sure to pop by and wish you all a very, very Merry Christmas. I hope it has been a day filled with love, yummy food, and plenty of fun presents. Now, with my greetings properly conveyed, I’ll let us both get back to munching the leftover cookies for Santa.

Merry Christmas!!

Peppermint Semifreddo

Are you guys aware that I am obsessed with peppermint? If you had any way of perusing the bookmarks on my web browser, you would see definite evidence of it, thanks to the endless barrage of pepperminty holiday recipes that are cluttering my hard drive. White chocolate peppermint mochas have been my go-to Starbucks drink for the past month, most often accompanied by a peppermint brownie cake pop. After I finish consuming those, I pop peppermint Altoids like there's no tomorrow. And then I go home and make peppermint semifreddo, because that's a totally normal thing to do.

Maaaaybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but there's no doubt that peppermint is my favorite flavor of the Christmas-y season this year. I went through an odd pumpkin streak last year, and a gingerbread one before that, but I think peppermint is going to be a perennial favorite. Which gives me the perfect opportunity to chat with you about peppermint semifreddo and all it's creamy wonders.

Gingerbread Waffles

Have you ever had trouble getting into the Christmas spirit? Like when you’re stuck in line at the mall and you hear “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” playing over the intercom one too many times. The teenagers standing in front of you seem physically incapable of lowering their voices below 130 decibels and the toddler behind you keeps coughing its powerful kiddie germs all over your coat. Your forehead starts to perspire, and maybe you get a bit of an eye twitch. All of a sudden, holiday cheer seems like a distant memory of brighter, happier days.

Before I continue on with my story I have to say the aforementioned scenario did not actually happen to me. Well, it hasn’t happened to me all at once, thank the little Christmas angels. But I do hate “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” with a fiery passion.

My First Cooking Video

Ah, the things I will do for a chance at a year’s supply of kimchi.

Like the title says, dear readers, this is my very first cooking video. Featuring a delicious recipe for Bulgogi Tacos, this video is an entry into the Kimchi Chronicles video contest, which is offering up prizes dealing with some of my most favorite things—dramas and food. After reading that this contest offered the chance for a year’s premium subscription to DramaFever, as well as a host of Korean food-related prizes, I knew that I had to give this video a try.

The rules simply stated that to enter all you had to do was create a video of yourself making one of the many yummy recipes from the Kimchi Chronicles cookbook. Seeing as my love for Korean food is growing bigger and bigger day by day, I leapt at the opportunity to participate in this contest. The recipe I chose—Bulgogi Tacos—is especially unique in that it combines all the amazingness that is Korean food and marries it with some excellent Mexican flavors as well. Seeing as I’m already a Mexican food fanatic, I thought that this recipe would be a great way to show a bit of who I am and what I love for my video entry.

After a year and a half of anonymous blogging, I hope you guys will enjoy finally having a face to place with the food pictures and geeking out over cheese. So, without further ado, here’s my first cooking video!
