Dashi Crab Tteobokki or Spicy Korean Rice Cake- instead of using anchovies and kelp for the stock base, I opted to use dashi! I used frozen jumbo crab meat to throw in at the end, instead of fish cake this time. Super delicious, quick, easy and delicious!View More Dashi TTEOKBOKKI or Spicy Korean Rice Cakes

Chilli to me is a full sensational experience in a bowl: the spices of cumin, garlic and Chilli seasoning warm you; the aromatics from beginning to end stages slowly build up your craving for it. The raw onions, garlic and peppers wake you up the minute you start cutting them up. Then when you hear it sizzling, and bubbling, you await the moment it is done cooking and ready for tasting. Then when you taste it, you feel comforted and happy, yet excited from the kick from the jalapeños!View More Beef Chili with Whatever Canned Goods You’ve Got

How often do you stop and truly PLAY with your child(ten)? I encourage you to stop what you are doing at least once this month to just play! You will see your kids’ face light up, like never before. You, their parent who is usually working or cooking, cleaning or folding; it’s the most intriguing and endearing thing to them to see you laugh, be creative and play like a kid ! You are their role model. You are the person your child looks up to; their first teacher; their inspiration. What are you telling/ showing your child when you stop what you’re doing to play with them ? How does that make them feel? How does that make you feel?View More LEGO Play!
Why kids do so much art? Why is art important in early childhood and beyond?
The more you art, the more you start to realize art is embedded in our lives and shares bits and pieces of who we are as unique, one of a kind individuals.
Art is about developing yourself. It’s taking baby steps to try new things and trying to understand things other people create and respecting their point of view.
Art is you and you are one of a kind. You are special because there is no one like you.
Life is about sharing who you are to the world, and finding not IF we connect, but HOW, WHERE and WHY we connect.View More Art tells us it’s Okay to be You
