1010911_10200524287414538_1159825541_n-2Hi!  I’m Kimie, and I’m the crazy lady that loves to blog, take photos, and try my best to cook up something delicious.  My husband, our two cats, our dog, and I live about an hour southwest of Washington, DC.

During the week I work for a whole food supplement company, and it’s amazing how much I’ve learned while being there.  Our bodies are these amazing machines, that must have all parts working together to perform at it’s best.  Food is such an wonderful and powerful component to our lives.  If we respect it it can provide us all we need to be live a healthy life filled with energy and health, but if we overdo it, then it can be our worst enemy.

My relationship with food is simple… if I like it then I eat it, and sometimes I eat way too much.

Now, I’m starting to work on my physical conditioning I need to take control of my relationship with food, which to be real is a total love affair.

My amazing husband Emery, is a professional Chef, so he adds helpful hints, shares recipes, invents new recipes, and is the best tasting guinea pig a girl could ask for.

I love how much he loves to cook and the excitement he shares with me to cook something delicious, meanwhile holding my hand while I have a MRI, or going to my doctor’s appointment with me just because he knows I’m scared.

Most of the recipes we cook together (and separately) are more on the healthy side, but not always. We still love pies, cakes, cookies, almost everything fried, and… let’s not start talking about pasta!   Safe to say that it’s a work in progress.

Some of our favorite foods are from other wonderful places around the world.  We love anything Asian.  I’m half Korean, so Korean food is top of my list, Thai, and Vietnamese to name a few, plus Indian, and anything from the Middle East.  Plus my dad is from the south, so I love southern dishes.

Emery’s roots are southern as well, but his family is from upstate New York,  Canadian French, and German, which helped shaped his cooking style.  Plus, his family is a wonderful blend of some amazing cooks, and bakers.  His grandfather was a professional baker, and I think passed the baking and cooking bug down.

Together we are Hungry Foodies.
