Spring is finally here! #OXOSpringCleaning

IMG_1871

In like a lion, out like a lamb. Winter had a stronghold here in the Northeast this year! We had snow on the first day of Spring and experienced frigid temperatures up until the past few weeks.

Hobak Jun or Fried Zukes

Jun (or jeon) is a typical Korean side dish and is quick and easy to make. The best thing about this dish is that my two toddlers love it…miracles of all miracles. I prefer the smaller zucchinis since they seem to have more flavor than the larger varieties and the small slices just seem right…
