It’s Been A Long Time, Hasn’t It?


The last time I made a post, I was so excited about sharing it with anyone who would appreciate what I had prepared. Even though the name of the dish was probably confusing to those who drifted this way, the photograph, in my opinion, looked good enough to pique anyone’s curiosity.

I usually take pictures of my food after I had finished making dinner for the night. So, as I sat eating dinner in front of my laptop, I’d choose the photograph I loved the best and begin the work of putting the dish into recipe form. Usually, I have at least three photographs ready for me to write a recipe and post. The part I hated doing the most was writing the recipe as well as figuring out what exactly did I want to say in the post.

At some point after I wrote my last post, a part of me could not for the life of me get a post written. Everyday I thought about writing a post especially after each vegan Korean meal I prepared for dinner. Yet, when I sat to write, not one thing came to mind. Not even the desire to write out the recipe of the meal I created. I believe a part of me began to not believe in what I was creating and this is all so personal, really dear to my heart.

I LOVE Korean food and her people, as well as learning her language and her culture. I have had this love for Korean food and her people for as long as I can remember. The only thing is that I didn’t know it all was Korean. I hate to say that for many years I thought it was all Japanese. I knew about Korea, yet the Korea I knew wanted to bomb us. I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t know there was a South Korea. Still, once I knew, I thought about the dishes I loved and how similar some of them were to some  Louisiana Cajun and Creole dishes. I truly believe that Korean ingredients and flavors work very well with Southern Cuisine – especially Louisiana Cuisine.

During my time away, I have been in deep contemplation of what my next step will be for BeyondNFinity. So now,  I have decided to take things slowly, believe in myself and see where the journey leads me. This should be interesting…
