Through food blogging I’ve not only gotten to hone my cooking skills but I’ve also gotten to know so many great people. I especially love the bloggers who share their lives, open up and let you inside. Reading posts that are honest and just speak from the heart, I find truly inspirational.
Lora is one of those bloggers. I’ve gotten to know Lora through Bundt-a-Month and Twelves Loaves and I also just follow her blog and consider her a friend. Lora’s father passed away in January of 2012 and through her love for her father and food, and friends reaching out to her with words of encouragement and stories of those that they loved and lost, she created a very special series on her blog, called Food Memory.
“That’s the main reason I started the Food Memory series: Keeping their memory alive in our hearts.” – Lora G. (Cake Duchess)
I’m honored to be a part of her Food Memory series and feel so grateful for having this opportunity to celebrate my halmonee (that’s Korean for grandmother). The women in my family are strong and there’s a reason for that. . I believe she is the reason for that. She raised my mother and my mother raised my sister and I.
It all starts with love and strength.
So, head on over to Lora’s blog, Cake Duchess, for the rest of this post, to read the story about my grandmother and for this Korean Steamed Eggs recipe. I really really enjoyed writing this one. For me, being able to reflect on my times spent with my grandmother brought me an amazing sense of peace and time for self-reflection.
I hope you read it and enjoy.
