Her savory, soul-satisfying, one-pot ramen can be make in less than 10 minutes and her spicy and tangy chili-glazed chicken wings are a sure party-pleaser.

Korean Late-Night Noodles

Sometimes nothing hits the spot better than instant ramyun (Korean for ramen) and a cold beer. Switching out the seasoning packet for some flavored stock, though, makes it much tastier and more healthful. I also like to build it into a proper meal by dressing it up with some frozen shrimp or dumplings (although you can certainly use fresh, too) veggies, meat or whatever I have on hand. Feel free to adjust the spice level to your taste.

Korean Buffalo Wings

This is my version of Buffalo wings, tossed in a Korean-style hot sauce. I love these wings because they are a fun twist on traditional buffalo wings that gives them a different flavor and taste.
