Food for the Olympics

The Winter Olympics are happening in South Korea, and for another week we'll all be glued to our televisions every night cheering on the home team. If you're looking for a little menu inspiration appropriate for the occasion, may I highly recommend Half Baked Harvest!

Tieghan Gerard is a young (just 24) and talented chef and cookbook author. I received her cookbook for Christmas, but have been following her on Instagram and her blog (click on link above) for some time, and her recipes are THE BEST! Each one is a flavor explosion...a little party in your mouth!

She also happens to be the older sister of Red Gerard, who just took the gold in slope style snowboarding last night! Woohoo! 

She has several Korean recipes on her website, but I have made two since the Olympics started. The first was Korean Bulgogi BBQ Steak Bowls (click here for recipe, and you really should, because her photos are so much better than mine!), and we were WILD about it. That's probably an understatement. No words. Just make it! (I omitted the egg and the kimchi, but pretty much did everything else by the book. Marinated the meat 24 hours.) Delicious!

And last night, we enjoyed Instant Pot Sticky Korean Chicken (click here for recipe). Also delicious! Easier to prepare, because it all goes in the crockpot (or Instant Pot), but the one above was definitely our favorite of the two.

Bon Appetit! And go team USA!
