Mother's Day Korean Food

The food theme for today's gathering was Korean, and we had quite a spread.
Here're a few of the dishes. Didi made a bibim kook soo with soba noodles!
I made a tofu miso soup. I've posted the recipe in the blog post following this one.
Geri made this chap jae. I'll be posting the recipe tomorrow.
Geri's husband Teren made this Duk Bokgi. He got the recipe from this YouTube video. Duk is a Korean mochi and you know how I loooove mochi. This dish is one of my favorites.
Diem made this Sweet Potato Tapioca dessert. It was sooo yummy. I'll be posting the recipe later this week.
Nephew Daniel and his girlfriend Kenna made these cupcakes. So cute yeah!
Everybody brought some kind of pan chan (Korean side dish), but this was by far the most interesting. My sister Sweetie bought it from Palama Market. I was too scared to try it. Wendell liked it.
Nadine from the Sake Shop gave me this bottle of sake a few weeks ago. I busted it out today. I really liked it. It was light and fruity.
My cousin Karen Hayashida made these seasoned pretzels with Ranch Dressing mix. It's really, really ono. I'll be sharing her recipe later this week also.

Another fabulous feast! I eat bulgogi, bibimbop and mandoo. That's about all the Korean food I can have. Everything is always so spicey. So sad! :( I'd love to know how those pretzels are made. They look really yummy!
