i totally agree with everyone about sushi! we’ve made it a few times, and some has been great and other times, not so good. we do a lot of mexican, indian, asian recipes and i feel pretty comfortable with them. But i’ve always been intimidated with making bread. I would love to perfect a naan recipe, but i haven’t tried yet. Anyone has great naan recipes? or just great bread recipes in general? don’t have a breadmaker, but we do have a kitchenaid…

um…pretty much everything except I can make the sushi. ha! 🙂
I can’t wait to have some time to experiment on Asian cuisine – I’m Korean, yet I can barely make anything Asian, period…well I can make rice and roll them into sushi. 😉

@ejs, i know very little korean so when my mom cooks, she always shows me the package so i can find it at the korean store!
i have still yet to make any korean food, even though my mom gave me her marinade recipe for bul goh-gi/kal-bi. just haven’t had the opportunity to make it. the boy always requests that she teaches me so i can make it for him.
oh, and crepes. i SUCK at making crepes.

Oooo i have my mom’s bulgolgi recipe and it is AHHHHmazing. Its the only korean food my husband will eat. He thinks the rest of it is *weird*, but only b/c he’s never had any of it before the ripe old age of 25. Chap Chae is yummy, too, but i can make that. Unfortunately most of the “korean” foods I know involve such basic food I don’t have to bother trying to figure out the packages! I takes me FOREVER to buy food in a K market

Anything BBQ. I LOVE BBQ and could eat it everyday, however, I just can not for the life of me make it! I consider myself a very good cook, but I am more of a baker and am known for it. But, I cannot master BBQ whether its pulled pork, ribs or plain BBQ Chicken, it never turns out as good. I dont beleive in slapping a bottle of sauce on some chicken, I am all about homemade. I will keep trying!

@ejs, don’t worry, my parents have been married for 30 something years and my dad only started eating kal-bi like, last year! and not for a lack of trying on my mom’s part. he’s very closed minded about new foods. man, that sucked growing up. hahaha. it came to a point where i couldn’t even look at a hamburger patty anymore!
i really want to try making pahjun. it’s one of my favorite snacks. especially the crispy edges.
