Hello, everyone! I’m Alice, the creator behind Hip Foodie Mom. I’m a proud Korean American, wife, mother of two and love to cook and eat. Growing up, my family and I always connected over food. Someone was always in the kitchen cooking: my mother, my father, my brother. . food was definitely a huge part of my life. Some families bond over sports and activities; my family bonded in the kitchen and at the dinner table. As a kid, I was surrounded by delicious food, and not just Korean food, all the time.
Surprisingly, I never really got into cooking until after I was married. I needed to expand my culinary repertoire so I started collecting recipes from all these cooking magazines and from watching The Cooking Channel and I just started cooking. After the birth of my first daughter, I started cooking a lot more because I wanted her to have fresh food. Now, I am a mother of two beautiful daughters, Phoebe and Madeline, and they are often in the kitchen with me; helping as much as they can.
What I Love To Cook
As a busy mother of two, I try to keep it simple on the weeknights with meals that can be made in about 30 minutes. I meal plan when I can and I’m a huge supporter of buying and cooking with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Here on my website, you’ll find a variety of recipes: Korean food, Asian food, Pasta, Meat Dishes, Instant Pot recipes, comfort food, soups, easy weeknight dinners and more. The common theme is cooking with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Click here to see my complete recipe index.
I hope you find some inspiration here and mostly, good recipes that you will want to try in your kitchen. Thank you for visiting!

We’re in Pennsylvania
August 2019: Our family relocated from Madison, Wisconsin to Malvern, Pennsylvania!! This is the first time we have lived on the east coast! I never thought we’d move around as much as we have but I am excited to explore our new city and get into our new house; we are building and hope to be in our new home by the end of 2020. Fingers crossed!
