Hi there! I’m Esther, a foodie with a love for making a mess in the kitchen (and then cleaning it up immediately). I’m so glad you’re here to join me in my food-ventures!
Besides food, my list of favorite things includes long runs, the beach, good books, learning about different cultures, and deep conversations about life and God. I grew up in a Korean-American household, root for the Red Sox, and am half introvert, half extrovert. I currently work as a registered dietitian, and live in a little hipster town just outside of Boston.
My food preference spans the entire range, from kale salad to chocolate cake. I believe all food really can fit into a healthy way of eating, and it’s my goal to develop an arsenal of recipes that embodies this idea.
What’s with the title? The ink is a nod to my childhood nickname, Inky, which came from my poor elementary school teachers’ struggles to pronounce my Korean name, Inkyung. This blog is mainly a way for me to share just a few (or should I say, just a teaspoon) of my thoughts and recipes with family and friends, near and far. It’s a work in progress, as all things in my life, really. I’m planning to just have fun with it, and I hope you have fun reading and cooking along with me!
