About Damn Delicious®
Damn Delicious® was simply a hobby, but now it’s my full-time job.
Coming from a very traditional Korean household, I was destined to be one of three things: a lawyer, a dentist or a doctor. So as a grad school hobby, I created a Tumblr account in April 2011 to document some of my favorite recipes. I had one reader, making less than $0.30 per month.
But 11 years later, Damn Delicious® has grown into something that I never thought possible. I have connected with readers all over the world, conquered so many culinary feats in my kitchen, and collaborated with brands that I always dreamed to work with.
Damn Delicious has even grown into an amazing team of individuals working together to create the best possible recipes. We create recipes, step-by-step tutorials, and videos that focus on quick and easy meals for the everyday home cook to show you that it really doesn’t take much to make a homemade meal completely from scratch.
Originally from Queens, I moved to Los Angeles in 2000, residing in sunny 75 degree weather for 19 years before moving to Chicago in 2019 with my then-fiance, Ben, and 5-year old corgi, Butters.
Cartman, our second corgi, has been the latest addition to our family.
Butters & Cartman are the most adorable duo, but they are also deceptively cute. Please do not be fooled – they are a crazy pair of stumpers who love to roll in poo. But we still love them to death and spoil them rotten whenever possible.
Due to COVID-19, our wedding celebration with friends and family had been postponed (and now cancelled) but Butters and Cartman still threw on their grey tuxedos as we exchanged vows in a small intimate ceremony at our rooftop home in June, 2020.
