Great for the Visual Cook
Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes - Robin Ha
Perfect for the visual chef who wants to learn basic Korean cooking
The animation is very well done with easy to follow recipes.
Sweet backstory to go along with the authors recipes, and her path to getting this book done.
I have a lot of experience with cooking Korean foods and still found some new ideas in here. All the recipes are good solid basic Korean cooking that will lead the reader down the path to delicious eating. I couldn't help but like the author her personality comes through in the illustrations. This book has been added to my gifting idea library.

Cook Korean!
Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes - Robin Ha

The conversational tone, illustrations, colors, and comic book format of Cook Korean by Robin Ha make Korean food and unfamiliar ingredients more approachable. Don't let the comic book approach fool you; this is a serious cookbook. It only has about 70 recipes, but packs in a lot of information with personal stories, Korean food history, descriptions, definitions, and, of course, recipes. Having read Robin Ha's stories, I look forward to incorporating her flavors in my cooking.

Cook Korean! Review
Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes - Robin Ha

This was a great idea. All cookbooks should be comic books. Now if only this thing would lay flat so I didn't have to keep propping it open!

I love Korean BBW.

I think you mean BBQ.

Yeah, well, that too. I also love knowing what all the cool kids are talking about when they call each other "bae" nowadays.

Huh? What do you mean?

"Bae" is Korean for Asian pear.

The more you know.

I dig Kimchi and these kimchi recipes are Asian pears. That didn't sound right. Are we sure kids these days aren't just dumb?

No. Not sure. I've heard "bae" is Dutch for poop, too, so that's a thing.

So my choices are Asian pear or poop?

Yeah.

Fuck.

Yeah.

Okay, back to the review.

Short ribs are good, son! And this book right here? This book RYCHEER! This book'll tell you how to cook some them there short ribs, Cuz. Talking lip-smacking tallywhacker-tempting good short ribs. Don't have all the fancy ingredients? Don't worry. Robin Ha says some motherfuckers just use Coca-Cola for their marinade because who has time for soy sauce and ginger and other expensive shit. Just drain a 20 ounce Coke into a plastic bag, drop in your short ribs, and hang out with your Dutch poop or your Asian pears for like thirty minutes, then cook them bitches (the short ribs, not your "baes", because this is cooking not cannibalism) and you got yourselves some goddamn motherfucking Korean BBQ, you sexy fucker!

But wait, ladies, there's more!

Need a hot beef injection? Well there's a recipe for Spicy Beef Soup in this piece! You only need like thirty-seven goddamn ingredients and four weeks vacation time to make it, but holy shit will it make your side dude have main-dude feelings. Also, this Spicy Beef Soup will make your asshole burn. Just warning you. We're talking nuclear hell hole, got me? We're talking lava butt, son. Kinda shit that'll singe your leg hair.

So whataya do after you set your rectum on fire? You eat Cold Buckwheat Noodles, of course! But first you're gonna need some Yengyeoja... holy fuck, did I spell that right the first time? I fucking did! YEA! Anyway, you're gonna need some of that Yeng shit. It's yellow wasabi paste. It's like regular wasabi but yellower. You're also gonna need a bae. No, like a real bae. One of them Asian pears, because we all know you're gonna die alone. Then some rice wine vinegar and some other shit I can't pronounce and you got yourself some fucking Cold Buckwheat Noodles®.

Finally, Robin Ha gives us some of her very own Korean Fusion recipes like Omelet Fried Rice and Spicy Chicken Tacos because who doesn't love some hot cock!

In summation: Comic books are a unique way to learn how to cook anything. Korean food especially. If you have $20 and don't mind a cookbook that won't stay the fuck open when you're trying to read the recipes, buy the fuck outta this book. Or don't. Until next time, I'll be slurping on some buckwheat noodles dipped in Yengyeoja. Ha! I spelled it right again!

Final Judgment: A hundred different ways to make your rectum burn.

The No Time To Cook! Book by Elena Rosemond-Hoerr
The No Time to Cook! Book - Elena Rosemond-Hoerr

A definite hit in the kitchen!
I made three recipes and loved them all.
First I made Beef Stroganoff.

I loved it, and the hubby thought it was just okay. So maybe I won't make it all the time, but once in a while. 
Then I made Pork Chops with Apple and Creamed Spinach.

This dish was a huge hit! My whole family loved this one, and I will definitely be making it often. The spinach was better than I expected it to me, so flavorful and delicious!
Lastly I made a Waldorf salad. I'd heard of it before and always wanted to try it. Now I have.

I loved this salad and can see why it is such a famous dish. It's crisp and refreshing! I urge you to try it sometime!
I can't wait to try some more recipes from this one. They are so easy to do, and usually need few ingredients to make. Great for when you want a decent meal, but are in a rush to eat.
