From dinner

We made kimbap (Korean sushi minus the raw fish) for dinner and it looked so pretty I just had to share pictures.

Since I didn’t have any beef, I used ham strips, which I ended up not liking. The ham flavor just seemed wrong to me. I ended up making a few rolls with just the carrot, chard, radish and egg. With a sliver of ginger on top–yum! But everyone except me loved the ham ones — I had to set some aside quickly so that some would be left for my husband.


  1. Gosh, your presentation is beautiful. Looks yummy! I’m with you – ham just doesn’t seem right with sushi — too sweet?

  2. Those are beautiful!!

  3. I am determined to try these (picked up Sushi rice last week. Now I need to get some nori–though I believe there are recipes sans nori. The kids are bugging me to try.

  4. this was my favorite food when I lived in Korea. I’d get it every chance I had!

  5. Those look great!

  6. Wow! Fancy! I’m going to attend your cooking school.

  7. Those look great, makes me want to try “sushi.” This would work for me really well because I’m not a fan of raw fish.

  8. You have how many kids…and you make dinner that looks like that!!! :O

  9. Jen, if it makes you feel any better, tonight’s dinner was freezer burritos and rice!


  10. Thank you for visiting my blog. You have a beautiful family! I love your banner at the top of your blog. This sushi looks delicious! I will have to try making some.

  11. That sounds really good, and looks wonderful too! Do you make it like regular sushi but then just with different ingredients?
