cHow Divine is all about simple, healthy, tasty recipes, with a Korean flair. We use fresh, seasonal ingredients that taste great and are easy to prepare. And you’ll find an interesting mix of recipes that would satisfy any palate. You’ll find the now ubiquitous “-free” recipes: gluten-free, dairy-free, meat-free. You’ll find raw. But you’ll also find savory meat dishes, with sauces both sublime and delectable. And for all nearly recipes, you’ll find alternatives to the bane of healthy cooking – table salt and sugar – with creative alternatives that satisfy both the palate and the body.

But what cHow Divine isn’t about is precious food, or taking ourselves too seriously. We love to cook, but we’re not obsessed with it. On cHow Divine, you won’t find many complicated, arcane recipes that require oodles of time. After all, cooking should be fun, not labor! We’ll try to offer good, sound advice that makes you (hopefully) get up from your seat and say, “Hey, that actually sounds good; and I can actually do it!” And we try to do it with a touch of humor, a dash of whimsy, and the fun musings of an ardent, cooking enthusiast. So in the amount of time that the pizza delivery guy gets to your door – okay, maybe a little longer – you’ll be able to whip up a healthy, tasty meal that will delight your entire family, and make you smile along the way.

All of the recipes on cHowDivine has been tested and re-tested by the author/cook/photographer (me, myself, and I). We recreate the recipes – at least once, most times twice – to ensure the outcome before posting the recipe. So please be understanding if we don’t post as often as we’d like. After all, cHow Divine is a one woman (albeit with multiple identities) operation!

The author/cook/photographer is an attorney licensed to practice in CA and NY. She also fancies herself a chemist “licensed” (via her bachelor of science in Chemistry) to practice in the kitchen.

I like to teach myself new stuff via downtime in the kitchen and my smartphone. Your recipes will probably be my newest inspiration when the restaurant is slow and I’m bored and hungry.

  9. Very nice blog. I found it inadvertently as my wife was anxious about preparing pajeons for a friend with allergy to gluten.
    I’ve just tasted Ganeepjeons and Gogomajeons they’re great (lighter and crispier than with regular flour).
    We will come back for sure to explore many of your fusion cooking receipes (my wife tries Korean-French fusion receipes of her own as we live in France)
    Thanks again !

    • Thank you for your kind words! I hope you find the recipes helpful. Drop me a comment if you have any questions or want to suggest a recipe. Thanks for coming by the site and for the comment JoG!!

  10. I am excited to try your recipe for Easy Kongnamul Bap but have a question (sorry if it’s obvious), what is ripe Kimchi?
    Thank you so much, Tracy

    • Thanks for coming by the site Tracy! It’s not obvious at all for those who haven’t cooked with kimchi.:) Ripe kimchi is kimchi that has already fermented. Even kimchi that is slightly past its prime is good for cooking, better in many instances. Hope this helps!

  11. I an in the UK and am not sure what “a cup” means. Could you clarify please? Thanks

    • Hi Ann! It is a unit of measure we use for cooking. Measuring cups are readily available online (amazon has a huge selection). You can convert to metric units using a conversion tables you can find online, but it won’t be as accurate (as you can imagine). It will depend on what the substance is that is being measured. I hope this give some clarification. Thanks for coming by the site!:)

      Hope you’re enjoying this long holiday weekend!

  14. Thank you so much for your Korean soy braised beef shank. Tried it last Friday for our Christian potluck and everyone enjoyed it. Will definitely keep this recipe for future beef stews. Loved the shank as it taste better than other cut and more economical in price!
