Damn Delicious


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 7 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 a brain surgeon to make a homemade meal completely from scratch.

About Chungah

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 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.

We plan to get married in June, 2020. Butters and Cartman will be in gray tuxedos, representing #TEAMGROOM.

  1. Hi there, I’m writing from Ottawa Canada. I love your site and your recipes . Tonight we are having your Korean beef with zucchini noodles. Your site is my go -to for  ideas. I’m always telling my girlfriends and friends from work to check it out. With the corona on , I try to go to grocery store once a week. I literally sit down Sunday morning and scroll through damn delicious and plan my meals for the wk, write my list them head out to store. Speaking of corona….I just now read your little bio and wanted to write and say I hope you guys are healthy in Chicago and good luck with June wedding , I hope you guys  will be able to pull off some sort of wedding , just think…regardless it’ll be a grand story to tell the grandkids one day. Take care and thanks for your wonderful food….heather

  2. Went looking for a ribs recipe for the InstaPot and found your site!!
    What a wonderful find.

    Thank you!!!

  3. Hi Chungah… your sheet pan shrimp boil was AMAZING! I prepared it for friends weeks before sheltering in place. Everyone requested the recipe, which I immediately shared. I’m hoping to share your recipe in a monthly article I write, and my compliance department has requested I secure permission from you to include your website, and post the recipe and picture. I can send you the article if you’d like to read it. It goes to all households in Montclair, which is a district in Oakland, CA. I’m a loan officer, who happens to cook, so this month I’d like to share one of my favorite recipe finds. Oh, & congratulations, and yes those two pups are definitely adorable. Hopefully the shelter place will not postpone your wedding plans. Thanks kindly for your consideration. Here’s the magazine website… http://www.montclairmagazine.com/

  4. Your recipes look delicious, can’t wait to try a few. OH & Congrats in June & for the cutetest groomsmen EVER!!! I am a widow & my family is scattered, but when I cook I like to cook for my friends & co workers…Congrats on your web too, I’m glad to hear yet another success story…God bless, be well & stay safe…

  5. Just found your blog. Love it. Are you still on for the 6.20.20 wedding or is that on hold until the Coronavirus is under control? Best wishes for whatever you decide. Your Corgis are adorable! 

  6. Damn cute corgis!!!

  7. Damn cute corgis!!!

  8. Congrats on the engagement! Long time follower, I love your recipes and books. I live in Chicago, hope you are enjoying it! Wish you luck on the wedding especially with everything that is currently going on. 

  9. Hello, congratulations on a great plan, I just looked at your Tater tot recipe, and it calls for Russets. I think I know why,, as I am in the middle of China now and have not found them here, I may get them online , but tried some what I call new potatoes, a whiter skin. these new potatoes seem to have a lot of water. I got them done okay, but had to squeeze them even after pressing the water out. added more flour to help them firm better, I did not boil , just peeled and grated.. Thoughts?
    , Mark

  10. Hi Chungah, I wish you both the best! I love new recipes and will try this one tomorrow. I’m retired now but started cooking with my mother at age 12. I’ll check out more of your recipes as well!

  11. Hi Chunga and Ben and all the others. I used to cook very basic meals as always left it to the
    boss. Ive been on holiday in Melbourne and got stuck when the locked the world down. I ve been cooking for the last 5 weeks for my sister and her brood. Iv’e found the recipes easy to follow and to also experiment around with. As Beth, I am also searching for the Mongolian beef recipe.
    Cheers Brett

  12. Welcome to Chicago! (belatedly) Thank G-d Ben’s a Dodgers fan. I saw that blue for a minute, and I thought cubs for a split second (White Sox fo’ life!). I hope your wedding isn’t derailed by this lockdown, and if so, that you can do something awesome very soon. I also hope you can get to enjoy any of our wonderful summer offerings if this stuff ever stops. So sad how many things are already cancelled. If they even *sniff* at cancelling fireworks, I may take to my bed. They are my favorite! (But that’s not as bad as having a wedding messed up possibly, so…perspective! ) Again, welcome!

    (Got here because of the P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef Copycat Recipe, which looks delicious and is now in my queue.)

  13. Hi
    I am so happy I ran into your website just yesterday. I fell in love with it right away and this evening cooked the shells and ground beef recipe. I am a family of 6 w/ 3 teenagers, needlessly to say…I was a hero!!! They all loved the recipe I especially love that it has Korean roots, my family love Korean food and we have been learning to make it at home!! Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials We lived in Illinois for 10 years it was beautiful, we still miss it every day!!but best of luck with the coo coo weather. I once had a Easter egg hunt for my kiddos in 8 ft. of snow
    Food is yummy and the people are like NO other, in the USA!!
    Best of luck,

  14. Hi! I’m not cooking at all but would like to start now to feed my family this quarantine. I would like to ask your opinion if I would buy 1 kitchen appliance only, would it be an instant pot or a slow cooker? I have a limitation in storage and I don’t want to waste buying something I would not use a lot. Thank you. 

    • I have the ninja foodi – it’s multi purpose – pressure cooker, slow cooker, air fryer, broils, bakes and sautes and a keep warm function when you’re done

  15. I LOVE your recipes! After the third success, I was like… who is Damn Delicious?! I mean a good BAKED mac and cheese!! Crazy good. I used to cook when I was single and had lots of time. My husband was the chef. As a widow with two young kids and lots of time due to quarantine, I’m getting back into cooking. Your recipes have helped. Simple steps and ingredients. Thank you!

  16. So glad I found your recipes and site! Looks like you have a wonderful little family and such delicious recipes! Congrats! I’ll def keep plugging in for ideas and recipes for my 3 boys! Keep on rockin’! 🙂

  17. god I love your food, the pictures are what first sells me. My family also loves your recipes. Thank you for all your effort.

  18. Not gonna lie, but these recipes seem really easy for someone who burned eggs once! I’m 16, going to turn 17 in September, and I love to cook along-side my dad (and when i’m at my grandma’s house, we bake A LOT!). I’m really excited to try more of your recipes!!

  19. Hi Chungah!
    I just love your website and recipes. I am trying your pot roast recipe as we speak (email)! Time and time again I am looking at your recipes for ideas 🙂
    I just recently went to part time after working full time most of my adult life. So, that said, I have taken to cooking and making more homemade, creative dishes. That’s why I come to you!
    It’s so nice to get to know you. You and Ben make a lovely couple, along with your adorable Corgi’s. (Is Cartman a shout out to a certain character on South Park? LOL) Very cool names for your fur babies.
    Please know what a comfort your smiling face and delicious recipes have been during this trying time. I appreciate you! Be well, stay safe and healthy.

  20. I was looking for a recipe on Beef Stew and found your website and your young, energetic, smiling face.
    Then I scrolled down to find out more about you and I was brought back in time when life just
    begun for me and my bride until we settled down in Brooklyn and finally here in CT with 3 lovely kids.
    Our neighbor is Korean mom with 2 girls, about the same ages of our 2 sons and we get along well and have
    authentic Korean dish every now and then that she cooks.

    Your choice for 6.20.20 is so biblical.  I am a simple believer and reads once in a blue moon
    But I like Luke because he was a great teacher and a glorious physician. His chapter 6:20-23  reads:

    20 Looking at his disciples, he said:
    “Blessed are you who are poor,
        for yours is the kingdom of God.
    21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied.
    Blessed are you who weep now,
        for you will laugh.
    22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
        when they exclude you and insult you
        and reject your name as evil,
            because of the Son of Man.
    23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven.
        For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.

    Good luck and I can foresee your great success in the future.

  21. 6/20 is my birthday. In 70 years I only recall one 6/20 when the weather wasn’t perfect and it’s the longest day of the year. Don’t change the date of your real marriage even if in this COVID 19 year you have to have your formal celebration later. Best wishes to you both and to your pups.
    A friend and I with whom along with her husband I have been isolating since March 18th made your Roasted Garlic and Spinach Pizza last night. It was DELICIOUS! We will make it again and now I’m exploring your site for more ideas to keep us smiling until we can all come out of our houses again.
    Hope you and your loved ones are well.

  22. Omg I’ve been saving your recipes for YEARS (like since the very beginning when I just had one kid and Pinterest was still new). Congrats on the engagement!! And thanks for all the recipes! 

  23. Love your recipes! Congrats on the engagement!

  24. Thank you for sharing, you started out making no money. Motivating for me starting a fashion biz. I found and tried your shrimp and pasta recipe and now I’m a follower. Keep enjoying and making great food! Congratulations on your engagement!

  25. Love your story. Also from New York originally and have been in Chicago since 2003. My wife and I took pre-wedding photos on the same overpass in your photos. Butters and Cartman are adorable. Looking forward to trying a number of your recipes; tonight it is teriyaki salmon. By the way, don’t let this weather fool you, this year was an incredibly mild winter. Hope your wedding plans go through well despite the current global situation. Stay safe.

  26. Scrumplicious great looking food.

  27. Your recipes are appreciated,I have 59 years of cooking and baking,my love affair is the kitchen and bakery,I prepare sauces condiments,pickled every everything an mail to my sister in Florida,Had a shrimp indoor farm ,140 days to shipping 233-26 grams each,,I sold all To Longhorn Shrimp Co. In Texas,The driver had a refrigerated tanker, drained the shrimp and wrote me a ckeck for 110k $ for the 6300 lbs of shrimp!!!!When folks would visit Always had a shrimp cocktail,Martini glass ,marinara sauce an 1 Shrimp,otherwise it would a shrimps cocktail!!!!!

  28. For your Garlic Butter Shrimp recipe, is it a requirement to use Kosher Salt, or can I use NORMAL salt or Himalayan/Punjab Salt?… Please explain the difference between them all.

  29. Hi Chungah!…
    For many years I’ve collected recipes that are so-so, yet never quite the in-between I’d been seeking. They claim ‘easy’ or ‘superb’, etc. most always with hyped-up ingredients and descriptions, never tasting quite right. Even though I’m French, I very much lean toward Asian and Mexican food.
    It was not my intention to find you, but boy am I glad I did! JACKPOT!! I like everything about your down-to-earth self… no flowery explanations, and recipes that are quite perfect! I have already printed off several, and going to fix your wonderful ‘one-pot garlic parmesan pasta’ tonight!
    Now to Butters and Cartman! I’ve had a professional pet sitting business for 26 years now, and I luv-luv-luv Corgis… I honestly think they may be more intelligent than us, poo-rolling or not! It’s those bunny-butts I adore!
    I like that you and Ben have chosen 6-20-20 for nuptials… our date was similar 5-5-05. With good luck by June, our world will well be on the mend from this horrid virus. With many thanks for your terrific site Chungah!

  30. i love your one pot beef stroganoff. it is hands down the best beef stroganoff ive EVER had. i will be trying some of your other delectable recipes. congratulations on your upcoming weeding.

  31. I found your recipe for Korean beef last evening on your blog. I didn’t have all of the ingredients, but I was able to substitute some from my pantry. It was so delicious! I was looking to make something tasty to go with the package of rice noodles that were pushed to the back of a shelf in my pantry. I have more time these days to slowly explore those shelves. My whole family enjoyed the dish! I’m going to order your two cookbooks, and I have become a devoted fan of your blog. Thank you!

  32. I found you site over a year ago, and I love it! My family likes everything I’ve made – and I am not a good cook. But your recipes and videos make it so easy! Our favorite is the Cilantro-Lime chicken thighs. We are making easy Pork Carnitas tonight, and lemon rosemary sheet pan chicken later this week. Thank you for all of the great recipes and congrats on your upcoming wedding.

  33. Our family just started cooking with an insta pot and I was happy to find your site. My husband loves Zuppa Toscana from Olive Garden and can’t wait to make it tonight. You definitely have a new fan and follower.

  34. Loved reading your story.  You and Ben make a great couple.  And your corgis Butter & Cartman are sooo cute.  Best wishes to all of you.

  35. So happy I found your site, can’t wait to explore all the receipes. I am making the fresh turkey breasts in the slow cooker today, cant wait to try this evening for dinner!! With everything going on with the corona virus and being at home, trying receipes and cooking is what I am going more of.
    Thank you!!

  36. You guys look great. I can’t help but wish you well.

    I am 76 and know what a good l life means.

  37. I have read tour story. It is incredible how internet changes our life forever. You are great and very talented. Keep posting as I wil be visiting your blog everyday

  38. New to your site. Found it today searching for creative ways to prepare broccoli. Found three great looking recipes and can’t decide which to make. Possible one each day. Positive outcome of our current situation is that we are eating alot more vegetables and I’m going back to creative cooking. I also live in the Chicago area. Thank you for your wonderful site. Stay safe.


  39. Great recipe; subbed in Potatoes, Carrots and Onions in place of the Broccolini. Thanks for sharing!

  40. I love your insta posts!!! I love your recipes and those adorable corgis.  Any chance you wound tell me the name of the breeder where you found butters and Cartman?  My daughters and I follow you and talk about those two rascals all the time. Hope you and Ben are happy and healthy during this trying time. Keep posting. As you can see, many of us rely on you for comfort, advice and a giggle. 

  41. Your recipes are very easy to follow. My go to site now for all things damn delicious – Swedish Meatballs, Beef Stroganoff and Shrimp Alfredo Fettucine.

  42. Ok, those Corgis are tooooo cute!!! I want to get one but my hubby is allergic to furry dogs. I think Corgis shed too much. But I love your story, drew me in!! I’m trying the corn beef recipe tonight.

  43. Justa lookin. Gonna try broc n shrimp then go from there

  44. I made the Korean Chicken bowls. Was delicious. I didn’t have all the ingredients, but the sauce was delicious. Will make it again and again. Thanks for the inspiration .

  45. What a lovely website. Endless amounts of recipes! I love the variety. I started pining so many of them and then bookmarked your website. Who needs a cookbook when I can have your website.
    Beautiful photography, lovely and easy cooking recipes, I can hardly wait starting trying them.
    Carry on cooking and posting.

    Hope the wedding plants are coming along fine.

    Thanks for your talent and creativity.

  46. I’ve been looking at and cooking your recipes for years but never read your story until today! What a great story and congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I’ve made cookbooks for some young family members and friends who were getting married and always include a recipe for Family Pie at the very beginning. I’m sure you’re familiar with it but here goes anyway lol.
    One handful of forgiveness
    One heaping cupful of love
    ONe lb. of unselfishness
    mix together smoothly with complete faith in God
    Add: Two cups of wisdom
    One cup of good nature for flavor
    Sprinkle generously with thoughtfulness
    This makes a wonderful family pie.
    One complete pie will feed any size family for years to come.

  47. Dear Chungah,
    Loved reading your bio – and love your short (or are they height challlenged) furry children. Congratulations on your proposed date to get married.
    But moving to Chicago – you must really love him? chuckle, chuckle!

    Your recipe for Teriyaki Chicken Shish Kabobs has no reviews on your blog, but I am marinating my chicken now to prepare the Shish Kabaobs – and plan to grill them tonight – so I may be back to write my review of your recipe.

    Love to cook so will be interested in more of your creations.

  48. do you have any recipes for dogs with early kidney stage disease?

  49. I made your chicken chowder and it was super great!!!! Wow!!!! Easy to do and the only add I made was I added canned corn.  Just gave it a little extra.  Next time I think I will add bacon crumbles on the top of the chowder .  But no chanes are really necessary – great chowder and easy to do.

  50. You’re the best cook around..,,. And I have been around! Keep those recipes coming and enjoy everyday with that cute fiancé and those precious pups.

  51. Hi…2 questions…
    1. What is that first cheesy looking yummy dish on your “About” page??
    2. What color grout did you use on your subway tile?

  52. Just found your site, have been making your Baked Parmesan Zucchini and will now find other recipes here to inspire me. Very nicely done!! Congratulations on a great site.

  53. Love to cook and would love to follow your culinary experience.

  54. I am simply fascinated by Lady “Chungah Rhee”!

  55. Simply Charming!

  56. Dear Ms Rhee

    I have just purchased a copy of your meal prep cookbook. I love the look of the recipes but I have a problem. The first one to catch my eye for a better look was the miso salmon tray bake. Yum, I thought, then I looked at the nutritionals. Hmm, I thought… you specify a 6oz salmon fillet per portion yet give calorie count for whole meal (one portion) of 253 calories. How can the be? Salmon provides approx. 55 cals per oz, which would give a count of 330cals just for the salmon, before we even reach for the honey etc.

    Now I’m wondering about the nutritionals quoted for all the other recipes. I hope it’s a pesky typo, but now (I too am a type A person, and Scottish to boot = type AA) I shall have to check them all. Boo. Still gorgeous recipes though! I adore your dogs. Have a superb wedding day.

    • Yve, the nutritional information is correct and has been triple checked. Please note that different types of salmon have different amounts of calories. For example, 6 ounces of king (chinook) salmon contains 304 calories, coho (silver) salmon contains 248 calories, and pink (humpy) contains 197 calories.

  57. We love your recipes!  We began following you on Instagram and now my Hubby and I must have our daily dose of Butters & Cartman. Wishing you all the best with your upcoming nuptials and prayers for continued blessings for you and your family.

  58. Charming About page . . . love your recipes too. All best wishes for a wonderful life together with Ben and the Corgis.

  59. I just found your site, Chicken Tacos-yum!
    And just wanted to say thanks, and you had me at Butters. Then, there was Cartman!!! Too cute! 
    Thanks for sharing, will no doubt be a fan, and look forward to your recipes!

  60. I love following you!!!! I am hooked on Korean Dramas and see such great food on these series! So glad I will be able to try some recipies from your site. Congratualtions on your upcoming wedding!

  61. Have tried several of your recipes, without varying away from what you have written. Very pleased with the outcome of them all.
    Please keep ’em coming. At 80 years old and way above ground, I still enjoy exploring with different foods.

  62. Hi, I am going to try your Cajun Chicken (Chili’s Copycat). My husband and I go to Chili’s often and
    I loved it there. I hope this one is just as good. Looks easy enough.
    I went to Seoul, SK October 2017 to see my grandson born. I was very impressed with Seoul. I didn’t like having to take the tram everywhere we wanted to go and having to walk all the way to get there but I survived it. Even walked up to the Mall on top of the hill where you can go by cable ride. I apologize, I can’t remember what it is called. I went to The Marbling with my daughter for some Korean BBQ Steak, Kimchee, with other items that escape me too. I even found a bottle of Korean BBQ Sauce at World Market in the US when I returned.
    I will follow you on Pinterest.. Thank you!!

  63. The best to all four of you! One of my favourite food blogs! Cheers from Canada.

  64. Just joined and looking forward to making many delicious recipes.  I have diabetes, well controlled, and find that I can still cook many recipes, although I must add or subtract that which would make my blood glucose unstable.  

    I’ve had two corgis that I loved and miss terribly.  I’m too old now to have another one,  but I do have two lovely felines to keep me company.  

    Your recipes look delightful and creative.  Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Tomi, I am also diabetic, type 2 have trouble controlling my sugar. Do have any advise? Would be appreciated. Thanks, don’t know if you can reply to me , my name is Betty Nelson live in Kentucky, am on facebook..Hope you can reply. Thanks

  65. That is so awesome, I love your site and your recipes. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, wish you both all the joy in the world. Dogs are so cute!!! Thanks for sharing the Instant Pot Roast recipe, I’m trying it tonight.

    Good Bless.

  66. Tired, working mom spots Instant Pot Chicken soup in google search, walking into Safeway in in a pitch black rainy parking lot. That looks tasty. That looks like I can actually cook it. Visits website to get recipe when she gets home. Immediately loves the story, the name, Damn Delicious, and the fact family pets are named after South Park characters. Win Win.. Off to make the soup. I am a kitchen disaster who burns fish sticks. Glad I stumbled on this website!

  67. Absolutely love your website! Welcome to Chicago – hope you like it here!

  68. Hi there! 

    I just have to say, I love the photographs of Butters and Cartman LOL. My family and I are big South Park fans, not to mention enormous dog lovers, LOL. 

    Your website I’ve just discovered while browsing the web,, and after seeing your recipe for Swedish meatballs, I’ve already gone to the store and came back, ready to make for this evenings dinner. Thank you for such an elegant suggestion to the never ending question of a mother: What to make for dinner? LOL.

  69. This is my first time to the site and I am thrilled, this is the first site that I can say I would cook 99% of the recipes! The recipes are easy and full of great ingredients I would be happy to serve to my family and friends.

    Thanks so much for making my day!
    Happy New Year!!


  70. Have all of your cookbooks and follow you on Instagram. Love your stories. Can’t wait to see pictures of the wedding. 

  71. You have my dream career!  I’m also in Chicago and love your site!  

  72. Would like to follow your recipes. I made your Hot and Sour soup. Very nice. Good wishes to you and Ben in your future.

  73. Chungah Rhee,
    I accidentally ran across your site today, Merry Christmas!, and the picture of the Bang Bang Chicken grabbed me. The thought of some nice chicken pieces with Panko crumbs and chili sauce, well, just spelling it out makes my mouth water again and I haven’t even tasted it yet!
    You and your handsome Corgi’s are show stoppers-Congratulations!

    And a big congratulations on your planned wedding in June. I wish you and yours all the best.

  74. Wow! I think I was one of your early readers– I didn’t realize you were a Korean American (like me!) and didn’t know you are now doing this full-time. Congrats to you! I made my own rendition of toffee, but have been inspired by your recipe too. Keep up the good work!

  75. Awww…Love the “About” page & the info about your adorable corgis & the pictures!! Way to go about making this into a business!!!

  76. I love these recipes! Do you ever post nutritional info?

  77. Are you planning to release another cookbook?  If so, when will it be released?  I have both of your cookbooks and I love them.  

  78. Thanks for the good read on your bio. I’m trying your Mac n Cheese, tweaking it to match what I have on hand. I’ll let you know how it comes out. 

  79. How am I just now seeing your website!!??? I’m looking up recipes for all my thanksgiving fixings and… well… all roads seem to lead to you.  Cant wait to tell everyone on thursday where all the deliciousness came from 🙂 Thanks so much!

  80. So….I follow the Australian/Korean singer Dami Im and after running out of superlatives to describe her outstanding beauty, I typed Damn Delicious and here I am….:)
    Those scones….YUM!

  81. like your site and look forward to eating delicious food.   

  82. My 16 y/o adopted chinese daughter Scout loves Korean food so I’m so glad to find your blog today to try your recipes.  We’re foodies and I’m sure we will love these recipes after reading people’s comments.  I love that they don’t look too difficult.  Just ordered your recipe books.  I plan to give them as Christmas presents to her this year.  Cooking is so nurturing and I’ll be glad to cook some Asian cuisine with her.  I’m mostly a southern cook b/c it’s what I grew up on.  I’ll update you when we cook something together soon.  We love to see such positive Asian representation in the mainstream media.  You need your own show on the Food Network!

  83. I’ve been cooking your recipes for awhile now & they are fabulous!! I need a recipe for Ginseng Chicken Soup! A local health food store called Lazy Acres sells it here & it’s better than Chicken Noodle anyday! I tried making it myself & I was close but the Ginseng was super bitter, any suggestions how to take the bitter out of it? Or is it the type of Ginseng?

  84. I follow your Insta and live your little stumpers! I also really love your recipes and wanted to ask if your cookbook has complete nutritional information in it. I’m Diabetic and have to watch my carbs and really want to attempt some of your Insta pot recipes. 

    I’ve also recently moved to the Midwest from warmer temps and am thoroughly enjoying your outdoor adventure posts with the doggies- our dog just saw snow for the first time ever this week!

  85. I am not a very good at cooking. After watching your videos, you have made it look so easy to follow.I am going to try your cauliflower rice recipe and if it’s a success I will certainly keep on following your recipes. Thank you 

  86. Good afternoon! I am looking through the recipes, especially your slow cooker french onion soup, but can’t find the calorie count.
    I am going to make the soup this weekend, but would love to know the calories.
    Please let me know, and answer why you don’t post the nutritional information.

    Thank you

    • Hi Sharon! Nutritional information is provided only for select recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, we recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”). Hope that helps!

  87. Oh my, we made the Thai Coconut Curry Soup the other night.  What can I say….it’s absolutely delicious.  Will be making it again very soon.  Followed your recipe with everything except the Thai basil leaves, couldn’t find them, so just used regular basil leaves.  Having visited Vietnam last year, we saw the Thai basil leaves and had them in Pho. Keep your wonderful recipes coming.  They are all so Yummy!

    • You can order dried Thai basil on “the site that sells everything”.  It’s not like eating green curry in Bangkok, but it’s better than trying to find a substitute.

  88. I love your yummy creations!! Tonight I’m making the skillet lemon dill chicken thigh dinner – can’t wait. I follow you on IG and your sweet corgis – so much fun to watch them and stumps! Keep up the great work.

  89. I love your recipes and really appreciate them. I am more of a watch and do. I always see your “other recipe” videos on the recipe page but never see the actual one I’m looking at, is there something I’m missing on the page? I love to watch videos and learn from them.

    Congrats and I love your dogs.

  90. New to this site. Like the ease of the recipes. Keep them coming.

  91. I have a lot of good recipes show up on my fb feed…. from Keto to home cooking comfort food. But no other speaks to me as much as yours.   Photography impeccable, recipes yummy and just fancy enough, but attainable and damn delicious.   I have recommended you to all my fellow moms out there. 

    Good luck and keep cooking!
    P.S. congrats on the engagement!

  92. I’m from Brooklyn and then Queens, and now we’re in Northwest Arkansas. I don’t think I could move back to cold weather the way you did, to Chicago.
    I just baked your almond butter granola and will be topping my yogurt with it. My fave brunch place makes their own for an acai bowl, so I’m looking forward to building my own version.
    Thanks for the step by step.

  93. I just found your site and love it!!!! Going to try a lot of recipes this week! The “PRINT’ button does not work, however.

    • I also thought the print button didn’t work but after you click on it and the recipe shows up, look at the tiny boxes on the upper left corner of the page–that’s where you’ll see “Print this recipe.” I just did it so I know it works. Best regards from another new fan of this delightful cooking site!

  94. I just stumbled upon some of your recipes on Pinterest. I’m completely obsessed already. Everything looks so easy and delicious. I just ordered your books off of amazon (one out of stock?) and subscribed to your emails. 
    I can pretty much say from here on out I do not think I will need to look at any other websites for recipe ideas. Yours has it all and just how I like things!! 
    Thank you!!
     Im super excited to get started on some today 🙂

  95. where are the recipes?I cant get any recipes to try

  96. I am an adopted South Korean and recently found out that I am lactose intolerant. Are you not? Because you make so many dishes with dairy…I love your recipes but can’t make half of them it seems! 

    • I make the chicken mushroom vegetable soup almost every week with a half can of regular coconut milk/ cream. It tasted amazing! I also add fresh chopped rosemary in the soup. It’s one of our favorites.

  97. Love your site! I am from Middle Village Queens too….small world

    What part were you from? I am obsessed with cooking/baking I would love to do what you do, just feel like it is impossible! lol

    Well I am a big fan and now that I know your from Queens I like you more lol

  98. Chungah, As our house is in disarray due to a kitchen remodel, I wasn’t able to find my dog treat recipe that I had planned to make for our church fair in Framingham, MA. So I googled “recipes for dog treats” and found your website. I have printed out Peanut Butter Dog Treats and Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats and plan to make both of them to sell at the bake shop table which I co-chair. I will certainly give you credit for the recipes!
    Along the way of perusing your website I found Cranberry Pecan Baked Brie which I MUST make for Thanksgiving. It sounds amazing. I have to make your website a frequent destination to check out your other recipes.
    Good luck with all you cook!

    PS My daughter and her boyfriend are also obsessed with Corgis. I have a 12 yr old Havanese named Cody.

  99. Love the ease of your. Recipes

  100. I absolutely love your recipes. I use your site more than any other to fix meals. I’ve fixed the Jalapeno Chicken, did my own recipe for a burrito that had sweet potatoes, quinoa, and less beef than usual but fixed the chimchurri sauce with it and tasted fantastic.Also fixed the Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta, really good but being lactose intolerant I’ll have to try coconut milk next time. I’m making the Sheet Pan Chicken Fajita’s right now. Can’t wait to taste it. And I love your Corgi… I love them too. The Corgi butt pic made me smile. I didn’t grow up learning how to cook and I’m so glad your recipes are so easy to access and so good. Oh yes, also I wanted to share something. In my search to cook with less sugar, I found as a replacement for brown sugar. I still haven’t got the quantities quite right but Stevia and Maple extract works great as far as replacing taste in sauces.

  101. I love your recipes.  Just made the sheet pan Fajitas. Loved them. I bought one of your cookbooks through Amazon. Love your instant pot recipes.   Keep cooking and sharing.  Your my favourite online chef!!
    I also had a corgi.  Best dogs ever, so smart.

  102. Just found you on Pinterest and now I am a fan of your IG….your dogs are the best and make me laugh out loud! Sitting here making a grocery list so I can actually return back to that mysterious land otherwise known as my kitchen 🙂 Can’t wait to try your fabulous recipes! Thanks for sharing! 

  103. I am so happy that I pinned on of your chicken recipes last week and that made me explore your blog!! bookmarked so many nice appetisers and recipes and can not wait to try your recipes now. Your recipes look so simple and the food looks so delicious! so happy to have stumbled upon your blog.

  104. Hi Chungah!

    I follow you on instagram and I’m such a fan of your recipes and have tried a few of them and loved every single one that I’ve tried. So did my family!!! I also love seeing updates on your dogs on instagram stories. They are really cute. Congrats on the new pup.

    I’ll be heading to Chicago at the end of the month with some girlfriends and was wondering if you would recommend restaurants that we NEED to try. We would love your input!

  105. Love your recipes and I love Corgis!  I follow you on Instagram and you and Butters are my favs!  When do we get to see new puppy?

  106. Hi Chungah,

    I laughed out loud when I read “Butters likes to roll in poo”. What a shitty thing to do!

    Love your recipes and your photos are great!

  107. I love your recipes. I don’t remember how I learned about you. I went to Korea on mission trip years ago but they were the most hospitable people I have ever meant. I will share your website with my 13 year old granddaughter who just learning to cook.

    I was signed up under [email protected] but I resigned up under my new email [email protected].

    Keep up the good work.


  108. I want to try your Restaurant style Mexican Rice recipe.  Can I use Jasmine rice instead of Basmati, and will I have to change the amount of liquid?  Usually Jasmine rice requires twice the amount of liquid as rice.
    Also, can this dish be made ahead and warmed?

  109. I really like your site. As a single retired mother of three its been hard to figure out how to cook for 1. I love your food so ive kinda bribed my son n his gf to trade some of my prepped meals for things I need so I don’t eat same thing all week Luv how u simplify it and always add alcohol at the end! Im hooked and sharing! I like ur style! I luv the Korean touch..my fave.

    • Nyoka, I live by myself too. These recipes are delicious. I make it like it says, then divide the meal into four (or six, or whatever) portions, freeze two, put one in the refrigerator for day after tomorrow, and eat one for dinner. Yum! Delicious dinners at the touch of a microwave button!


  110. Phi
    I will try the shrimp with garlic!

  111. Going to try and make your Chinese Chicken Salad tonight

  112. Your recipes look great! Can’t wait to try the Shrimp In Garlic Sauce! I was a good cook myself, but burned out after years of cooking! You have inspired me to get into cooking again! My husband will be thrilled! Thank you sooo much!

  113. Stumbled upon your Easy Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry by accident . Made it twice now – it is so delicious!! So now I am hooked on your website. Can’t wait to try more. Also l
    LOVE your Corgi! Always wanted one.

  114. You had me at corgi! But I love your recipes and will be back often to check things out!


  115. I’ve been having the best time trying new recipes ever since I stumbled upon your blog. The green curry soup was TO DIE FOR. I can’t wait to make it for my parents next time I visit. Thank you! 🙂

  116. Chungah, When I printed off the recipe for your Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli, I cropped off the bottom couple of lines which went onto a second page and then realized your “Damn Delicious” was not on my copy. As a marketer, I suggest adding it at the top, under the recipe title, at the beginning of the “yield, etc” line. Colleen

  117. Hi Chungah,
    I’ve enjoyed using your recipes for a couple of years. When I tried to access you chicken sate recipe today I was required to identify myself. Minor irritation I know but wonder why this is required this time .

  118.  My daughter and I love your recipes! Additionally, we love Korean and other types of Asian food. Recently we transitioned towards a more low carb lifestyle. (Keto) is it possible that in the future you could take some of your more popular recipes and “KETO-FY’ them?  So many many people are transitioning to low-carb, and yet have an affinity for Asian cuisine, which you have mastered. 

     Specifically in the very near future, can you do a simple recipe for how to bake homemade Gochujang?  It appears to be an essential element in many Korean dishes. So the ability to make a low-carb version that is suitable for the keto lifestyle would be fabulous. But, request is formally made for low-carb recipes in and among your many delicious offerings. Thank you very much. 

  119. Hello Chungah, I’m glad I stumbled across your site.
    I’m kinda between a rock and a hardplace. I lived in Japan for my 4 high school years, and for being a young twit, I came away with some good living experiences . I Traveled to Korea and loved the food, little by little Korean dishes started to appear in Japan on local menus. One of the dishes was beef Bulgogi. I was hooked badly. My dad even bought a Bulogi brass table top grill.
    My problem is that what I had in Korea and Japan is not even close to the dishes here. I mean the dishes here are okay, just not as good. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    P.S. There are ZERO Asian restaurants of any denomination here in south Florida. So if your looking to become a millionaire for real, move here. We fly to Wash D.C. 4 times a year to eat at” Peking Gourmet Inn”. The owners have been my friends for 40 years and I’ve tried to talk them into opening a place here, but they’re getting burnt out and not interested. They started out with 10 tables and now seat 500. They sell 3000 plus Peking Duck at $50 a pop over the weekend. Many of their customers don’t even order duck! Go figure. Actually Google their menu for fun. Yes, they are millionaires over and over. Here the Asian places go out of business faster than you can imagine.

  120. I am so excited to have found you. Your foil packets will save me from nonstop hot dogs while camping. Thank you!!

  121. Just discovered your recipe for No Knead Rosemary Bread, so will try it for sure

  122. Hi! I honestly don’t know how I stumbled upon your website, but I’m so happy I did. I’ve already found a few recipes I plan on trying out asap, namely your instant pot chili and slow cooker butter chicken. I also plan on getting your cookbook.
    Best of luck to you!

  123. Good Morning,
    I just purchased Damn Delicious Meal prep from Costco. It was a total impulse buy and I absolutely love it. I even got my husband on board with working together on the weekend doing meal prep. I do have one question. I see on the front cover, there is a noodle meal prep dish in the middle but I can’t seem to find that recipe in the book. I am interested in cold recipes for my husband work since he is generally not in an area that has a microwave.

    Appreciate your reply.

  124. I just saw that you moved to Chicago this year! On this snowy day on the eve of May, WELCOME! I have been following your site for a few years now — quite by accident, as every recipe I seem to like/pin keeps leading me back to Damn Delicious! I finally decided to read the “about” page and had to chuckle when you said you grew up in traditional Korean household where your destiny seemed to be lawyer, dentist or doctor. I have a Vietnamese mother, so — no surprise — I’m a lawyer, but I love to prepare home-cooked meals as often as possible, with your help! Your success is very inspiring. Thank you for helping everyday folks cook with clear, easy-to-follow, and tasty recipes. I’ll bet your parents are very proud!

  125. I just came across you on this site!!! Enjoying your recipes and printing to take home to try!
    Also don’t become a Cubs fan!!!

  126. Where is the recipe for that dip shown above? That looks INCREDIBLE!!
    P.S. I LIVE for your shrimp fried rice meal prep recipe! It is my favorite go-to lunch and my 4 year old gobbles the leftovers up. I substituted pork one time and he won’t stop asking for it!
    Love this website!!

  127. I really liked baked zucchini fries.  Delicious.  Do you think this recipe would work for green beans?  Thanks 

  128. I’ve been online looking for low sodium recipes. I happened to see your cookbook “Damn Delicious Meal Prep: 115 Easy Recipes for Low-Calorie, High Energy Living”. Are your recipes low in sodium content? Thank you!

  129. Jennifer and I would like to know if you can add somewhere on your page your pantry staples? The item every kitchen should have in stock?

  130. I love your site!  I have an unrelated question.  What is the color of your kitchen cabinets?  I covet them.  TIA.

  131. Oh, this is a fantastic way to get your kids eating broccoli.

  132. Hi, I stumbled on to your site while searching for easy dinner recipes. I am new to cooking (started last year when my baby turned 1) and basically in need of lots of easy, quick recipes for my family. Your site looks lovely. Can’t wait to try some of your recipes. And please keep us posted on restaurants/places to try in Chicago. Thank u!

  133. Hi Chungah…I have recently found your site and I am loving it. Can’t wait to try some of the Asian inspired recipes. Can you please post a recipe for an easy japchae?

  134. Hi Chungah!
    It’s dinnertime (again) and I’m loving your website. It’s my first time looking about the “About Me” section and I see that you moved to “Chiberia” in 2019? Where it that ?? A cross between China and Siberia? Sounds pretty bad compared to LA 🙂

  135. Everytime I want a delicious recipe for something, yours is the first to pop up on every Google search, so I started following your site. I love your recipes and how yummy they are, and now I find that you have and love corgis so I am 100% in love! My corgi Totakeke loves watching me cook your delicious recipes! I intend to.kewp following for more delicious recipes and cute corgi pictures!

  136. Hi Chungah, your book literally changed my life and I wanted to write and say thank you!  In 2017, the company I was leading went out of business and I was home for 6 months. I found your book and started cooking for the family every day. I’ve tried pretty much all of them and really like that the ingredients are in the same order of the process. Every recipe was incredibly well received by the biggest skeptics…my teenagers. I’m looking forward to the day you decide to make a 2nd version of your 1st book. Thanks for what you do: )

  137. One of my favorites! Especially with a loaf of brick oven Italian bread!

  138. Hi! Love your website! I have made your Asian meatball recipe. Would I need to adjust it at all to make it pork and make it patties instead of meatballs?

  139. Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come up with a tasty recipe for Jerusalem Artichokes?
    I have them growing in my garden and would like to utilize them in our meals but they have somewhat of an off-putting twang to them.

  140. Love the recipe book. Glad I found it searching for something else. Could you let me know what kind of Whey Protein Powder you buy? I am trying to make you Mini Pumpkin Protein Donuts.

  141. I get compliments on recipes of yours that I make all the time. I tell everyone who loves them to follow you 🙂

  142. I just want to thank you for your amazing recipes.  My husband discovered your Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe and it has become his favorite dish to make.  We have it 3-4 times a month.  

    I just found your Mongolian Beef recipe and am looking forward to trying it.  I have a feeling that it will also become part of our menu rotation!

    Congratulations on your success and keep up the great work!

  143. Can you add somewhere on your page your pantry staples? The item every kitchen should have in stock?

  144. Where do I get the prep containers. Amazon has some that are 1-2-3 compartment. What size do you use for your recipes I’m ordering book and need the containers.

  145. Pls share your Korean porridge!! I always get chicken broth from our local Chinese restaurant when I have to be on a clear diet and didnt know if this was similar. (Those days are SO hard!!)

  146. I just found your website and can’t wait to use your recipes. Will be buying your book as soon as I find it. All recipes sound delicious. Thank you

  147. looks fun and delish

  148. In the 1980’s I would travel to Korea (mostly Seoul) on business. Most of the traditional Koreans I interfaced with (female and male) were engineers and damn good engineers too. Anyway, my wife found your site today and showed it to me as in “look at this, I’m going to make some of these recipes”.

    “Good”, I said, as many of the recipe pictures look delicious enough to eat by themselves.

  149. First time post, Saw your site two-three months ago and I love it. I’ve made 2 dozen recipes at least so far, pear&apple crisp is in the slow cooker right now. Love your recipes they’re DELICIOUS, quick and you don’t need outlandish ingredients. Can’t wait for the crisp and new recipes.

  150. I love your recipes Ms. Rhee.  Keep us informed, please!

  151. Great stuff here. Love your recipes. You make my family very happy 🙂

  152. Hi Chungah,

    I am a first time “Damn Delicious” user having made, just last night, your garlic shrimp for the whole family. We wanted something we had not had before and of course we had fresh shrimp begging to be used. In one word, we “loved” your recipe. The steps were easy to follow, the ingredients were fresh and the final meal was delicious! Thank you for following your passion, we will definitely be back!

  153. Can’t wait to get started.

  154.  Thank you so much for your spam fried rice recipe. It rocks! It’s exactly what I was looking for. You are amazing. I live in Maine! But my son lives in LA and my daughter lives in San Jose, and I have lots of family in San Diego!   My daughter-in-law is Japanese, my niece and nephew and sister-in-law are Korean,  and my son taught in China for eight years! My other sister-in-law is from Thailand.    I have learned over the years a lot about Asian cooking.   So much more to learn. 
     Happy cooking! I’m learning a lot about Asian cooking, yet  I still can cook a good lobster and fish chowder! 

  155. I love it that you are in Los Angeles and that you followed your heart. When I was much younger I followed my heart but unfortunately I did not stay the course. So I would just like to suggest to you that you not allow something else distract you somewhere else. Instead follow your heart and take the course that makes you happiest.
    I just retired from my 2nd career and am looking forward to being free and being able to do whatever I choose to do not what I have to do to pay the mortgage or the rent.
    I just love your story.
    I feel proud that you had the courage to do this and you are succeeding.
    I am going to make your Italian Wedding Soup for my husband and I tomorrow.
    I found your site because I asked for a tasty delicious soup.

  156. Just found your page! Love every recipie. My dogo loves the homemade cookies she has been having recently too! Keep cooking 🙂 

  157. Was lookimg at a recipe in a blog and your blog was mentioned, love your website. Your corgi is so cute. They are fantastic dogs. I recently went back to work and I am trying to find more freeze and dump IP meals. In 30 minutes, I can have dinner ready and still get to the gym!

  158. I want to start making my dog’s feed. He weighs 70 lbs, not fat. How much of say the easy crockpot dog food would he consume being fed twice a day?

  159. Love your videos. Best recipes and not complicated. I do get your emails and look forward to them.

  160. My first time making your Thai Sweet Potato and Carrot soup today. I made the my own stock and used regular carrots and I must say it is sooo yummy! Great on a cold, rainy day.

  161. You are such amazing 

  162. Dear Chungah, you have an awesome website! I made your swedish meatballs and they were sooooo good.

  163. Love to follow your recipes such great ideas!!!

  164. First time seeing your post like to see different recipes you have!!!

  165. You are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your amazing recipes. My husband and I really enjoy them.

  166. Could we have a link to those biscuits in the photo above?? They look yummy!!!

  167. I want to be like you when I grow up! Which is crazy because I’m sure that I’m older than you are! I just want to say that you are an inspiration and one of my favorite food bloggers. I’m happy that you were able to turn your passion into profit. Keep up the great work! I wish you and your family all the best!

  168. Hello Chungah AND Butters.
    I would love for you to tell me how I can find a bone cookie cutter with my dog Romeo’s name?  I love all your doggie recipes and Romeo LOVES them even more.
    Thank you for making our lives happier ‍
    Joanna from Newtown, Connecticut 

  169. Great job! I absolutely love all of your recipes!! Everything is so fresh and delicious.

  170. Just came across your blog and it is amazing! Going to make once of your dishes tonight! Thank you!

  171. Do you have a cookbook with all these delicious recipes? I have a list of people I would live to give one to!!

  172. Hi Chungah,

    Just stumbled across your website! So inspiring and such great everyday easy recipes that I love. As a lover of food, fitness and nutrition I find it great how you use your company to reach others in an easy and visual way. People love seeing how things are made and how they look through simple videos, pictures and not just the recipe alone. 

    From an inspired Canadian fan,

  173. Hi, where do I find the recipe for the biscuits shown above ?

    They look delicious.

  174. Thanks for making easy recipes. I like good & easy to prepare food. So love your site. 
    Stumbled upon it while I was grocery shopping. I was planning to make pesto sauce & viola 5 ingredients or under !!! 
    Thanks very much! 

  175. Suggestion – an easy way to shred the pork if you have a Kitchen-Aid mixer, use the “beaterblade” attachment for about 1.5-2 minutes, you’ll have everything shredded in an instant!

  176. Damned delicious is the best! I am so happy that Chungah Rhee has made a great site with tested recipes. I cannot sing anymore praises for how well each recipe turns out, from the IP or soup they are all excellent.

  177. I would like to try the pasta with mushroom and zuccchini recipe.
    However I am one person. I know I can reduce all the items to a lesser amount 1 zucchini, less mushrooms etc. How about he water? Is that amount the same if you are cooking 1/4 of pasta?
    Thanks would really like to try.

  178. Hi, I’m a 76 year old who loves to cook and entertain for my family and friends.  We have had the privilege to have lived all over the world, many years in Asia and I especially love your Thai and Korean recipes. Keep them coming!!!! 

  179. Hi I just discovered your page.i have a 16 years old min pin I have a bunch of recipes but I am looking for a grain free diet, please how much to feed him

  180. Hi there Chungah
    I am thrilled to have stumbled across a recipe of yours on Pinterest and its has been history ever since. I have forwarded many of your recipes to my grown non-cooking daughters! And they have been encouraged to try a few and eat at home. Thanks for all you do and thank you for being on top of finding great, simple to make but tasty dishes. I am always willing to try anything you put out. Keep them coming. And Stanley says hello to Butters.

  181. I scored high points for serving your Lemon Garlic Shrimp Kabobs last night–This will definitely be my new “go-to” recipe as they were delicious, easy to put together and present well. Thanks!

  182. I am looking forward to making  dishes with your recipes. I simply love Asian cuisine…. You have a very sweet dog…

  183. I am no longer sure if your food led me to Butters or Butters led me to your food. Doesn’t matter though, now I have both to enjoy. Love your Butters, will try out your recipes now that I have joined the blog. Well done!

  184. I am glad i found your recipes. Loved all your recipes and i am trying out one by one. Everything is detailed and it is easy to cook. Thanks for helping us out on our daily tension on what to cook. Keep cooking

  185. Hi there.
    I’m in the process of buying a slow cocker but it’s a jungle out there.
    I was wondering if you could recommend a brand/model?
    We are a family of 2 and I’m situated in Denmark.
    Thank you for your trouble
    Regards Vivian 

  186. Butters and your recipes. Thanks Chungah!

  187. I was first introduced to you and your cooking when I started using Pinterest about 3 years ago.   I was planning my wedding and some friends suggested I look on Pinterest for ideas.  I got on and started looking at stuff and lo and behold, one tap on wedding dress silhouettes led to posts on the best time of year to pick your wedding date which led to venue locations and then pictures of tablecloths and runners which led to pictures of tablescapes which led to reception food ideas which led to pictures of food which led to a picture of one of your recipes.  I tapped on the picture (because I was drooling) and saw the name of your blog and thought “damn skippy this looks damn delicious!”  One look at he recipe and I. Was. Hooked.  Talk about good food and EASY recipes?!?  Since following you and using your recipes I have ONLY had to shop for ONE item that I wouldn’t normally have in my pantry…toasted sesame oil.   And oh how I now love toasted sesame oil!   

    You are an inspiration to home cooks who can cook something that will make a person slap their mama without the stress of culinary school (hours of standing which leads to chronic back pain and cut fingers) or having to spend $350/lb for black truffles that will only be garnish on a dish ‍♀️‍♀️.    Thank you for sharing your gift!  Your recipes are my FIRST line of defense for a healthy quick and easy home cooked meal that makes me feel like I’m am Claire Dunfee when I can pull it off after a long work day and my husband and nine year old son BOTH lick their plates and ask “Is that all you made?”

  188. wow ,you are doing it .I really enjoy your recipes.

  189. This is the perfect website for our family — my husband is from Thailand and I’m a blue-eyed girl from Vermont. Our 3 kids enjoy everything from curry to Mac and cheese but my husband definitely prefers things a little more Asian-y.  I made your Honey Baked Sesame chicken last night and everyone LOVED it!!  It was easy and I had every ingredient on hand.
    I am looking forward to checking here for all kinds of recipes so we stay out of the rut.  I will make the Funfetti cookies with my girls today.  So excited!

  190. Hello! Came across your site quite by accident & loved the simplicity of your recipes. So excited to try many of the Instant Pot ones that am looking to buy a 3 quart pot -am a one person household. But I noticed that the recipes are for the 6 quart. Can the recipes be “adjusted” for the 3 quart? Or can I follow the recipes as they are & still use the 3 quart? Thank you!

  191. Just discovered you on Pinterest and enjoy your approach on preparing and creating tasty meals that a guy like me (who rarely cooks) can create! Many thanks and keep up the good work, I’m on board –

  192. Hi what conversions do you use for the uk.
    I need to convert cups to grams

  193. I am looking forward to trying one of these delicious recipes today- I just found your website! I purchased an IP yesterday – it’s still in the box! I crave fresh ingredients & simple recipes! Love your dog! I have two pooches of my own! 

  194. You have a new convert!!! So far I’ve done 3 of your recipes and absolutely LOVE all three! I found this site by accident. I love to cook, but I am single now and just about all the recipes I used when I was married are hard to convert to single servings. This site is so easy and the recipes are really damn delicious. I can’t wait to try your roasted potatoes…

  195. Where did you get the cookie cutter used for the home made dog treats?  The one that stamped Butters’ name in the treat? Please share!

  196. But where did you LEARN so much about technique and balance?  Are great cooks BORN?  I can follow a recipe and I have tackled most ALL cuisines, but I fear that my taste buds are not sophisticated enough to EVER allow me to achieve your level of success.  But I certainly enjoy your choices and your narratives. Thank you!

  197. I tried your Sausage, Spinach and Bean Crock pot soup this weekend. We all loved it!! The taste was perfect. The only thing I did different was that I used kielbasa. It was so easy and so flavorful.

  198. Have made several of your recipes now over the last year and they are always well received. Last night the P.F. Chang copycat chicken lettuce wraps. Only thing I changed was I used boneless skinless thighs that I roughly ground in my Cuisinart. We have a 9 month Husky and recently found a stray that is a black Lab Corgi mix, possibly something else according to the vet because he has a tail that curls just like a Pug, lol. He is super sweet and about 1 year old. We named him Padfoot and he gets along so well with Yuki. Butters is super cute! Anyway just wanted to let you know that so far the consistency in your recipes amaze me. So many blogs out there have hit or miss recipes. Thanks!

  199. I just discovered your delightful website today while searching for a Baked Zuccine recipe. I made the fries, to freeze (uncooked), so I wouldn’t “lose” the bunch of zucchini our neighbor brought from her garden. I missed one step and combined the flour with Panko/Cheese mixture. Before I realized what I had done,  half  the yield was breaded…do you think they’ll bake-up okay? The other half was done right and I look forward to having them with my first effort at homemade Marinara Sauce! Anyways, good luck with your business, I’ll be visiting your site again!

  200. I can’t believe how delicious your recipes are, and beautiful you are.

  201. Hi Chunyah,

    Could I print your BLT Salad recipe with this link to your website in my blog:

    My website is http://www.YourBetter.Health
    This link is my blog:

    I post my blog on IG: stephanie_d_shorr and FB: Stephanie Shorr

  202. I’ve made many of your recipes and especially enjoy doing the ones on the grill. We enjoy outdoor cooking all year here in Kentucky and even grilling in the snow! There’s something special about food cooked over coals!

  203. Hi I was looking at your recipe and then I see your adorable and handsome Butters . Love your recipes and corgis.
    We have one too Ripley the fluffy corgi. 
    Great seeing Butters on your page.  

  204. You are my absolute favorite food blog. All your recipies have been delicious! If I need an idea for dinner or want to look for a recipe I always check your blog first. Thank you!!!

  205. I’m really digging the new site. I cook something from the amazing list at least once every other week, which I’ve been doing for the past year and a half. Thank You so much for this. When I can’t figure out what to eat, I just come here cause I know it’ll be “Damn Delicious!”

  206. Love the 1 pot Baked Ziti ❤️

  207. Love the new look.

  208. Butters says he resents that lol. Love the new website. Love the recipes. Love pictures of Butters. Thanks for working so hard to keep us all looking like chefs in our own kitchens. Keep up the good work!


  209. Your recipes are the best-delicious and easy

  210. Love the recipes. Keep doing what you love! I also love the dog! I have a bulldog named matilda

  211. I love the new theme, it matches your personality! I think one of my favorites and also the first recipe I tried from your website was the honey walnut shrimp recipe. I highly recommend it.

  212. I consider your chicken recipes TDF (to die for)!  I have used so many of them!

  213. 안녕하세요! 만나서 반갑습니다.
    Let me first start of saying

    I spent well over a month driving around Korea and spending time in Seoul. I have never, in all my travels, met a kinder, more considerate and thoughtful people than the Koreans I met all over the country. Whenever I was lost which was often, they put themselves out to help me. When I was hungry, they freely offered food. When I was getting wet in the rain, they gave me an umbrella. And the friendship they offered this oblivious stranger is incomparable. So, as you can tell, I’m a big fan of Korean recipes, cooking and its hospitable culture. Except for some of the modern, very sweet recipes, Korean dishes are extremely healthy, nutritious and aid the body’s digestion. I’m always on searching for easy Korean recipes that emulate traditional Korean flavors, using traditional herbs, spices, sweeteners, and other ingredients while being easy to create. Thus far, I enjoy your easy recipes that are based on traditional Koreans dishes.

  214. I love making your recipes particularly for Sunday dinners when my extended family  is at my house for dinner. I have a request.  I am on Weight Watchers and I need to count my points which means I need to know the calories, saturated fats, protein, etc.  sometimes you have the information following your recipes and sometimes you don’t. 

    Is it possible to be consistent with the nutrition chart with each recipe you post. 

    • Hi Vanessa! Nutritional information is provided only for select and some new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, we recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information. Hope that helps!

  215. I love your site and recommend it to everyone. The food is always delish and my family loves to pretty much everything (especially the Asian inspired stuff). Thanks for the site; it’s my go-to for my family.  And the fact that the ingredients are stuff I already have and the directions are simple helps too. But they’re also so tasty!

  216. I just love your website, layout and, of course, the recipes. The recipes are delicious!!!! I love the way you nestle in “my other recipes”. That catches my eye. The print button works well. Good Asian recipes are difficult to find. Your pictures of the foods look delectable. Good illustration!! I like the way you show how to make your dishes.

    Overall, good job!! Keep it up.

    It is unfortunate, however, that Google allows so many popups.

  217. I came across your wonderful website looking for a good Chili’s copycat Cajun Chicken Pasta recipe. I will be making it tonight – Can’t wait !
    One question – I’d love to train in culinary arts, but cooking schools can be so expensive. Do you have any recommendations for culinary training in the LA/OC area ? Thanks and looking forward to your recipe updates ! Go Dodgers Dogs !

  218. I have a white and orange fluffy cat named Butters! Never heard of another pet named butters. Also the instant pot beef stew was lovely. Thank you!

  219. Chungah, I Love-Love-Love your recipes. Oh, and you’re well presented yourself. Keep those great recipes coming. Thanks. Dave

  220. I like to search for recipes that contain the food I have on-hand.  I scroll through until I find one that looks good, print it, and make it.  I have definitely noticed that the majority of the recipes I have selected come from damndelicious.  I figured it was time to get intentional and get on your mailing list.  Thanks for putting together this wonderful resource!

  221. I am a Chef so, I am constantly looking for fresh ideas. I do mostly Buffet style for groups from 75-300 people. I do breakfast,lunch and dinner sometimes , for 3 days and longer…This is done just by me so, with little help, fun, attractive meals that healthy and EASY is a BLESSING to me… Love your site, its very colorful, healthy and attractive ideas…That, I can do in mass amounts EASILY. With a 3 or 4 choice entree, I like to have ONE nice healthy choice for them…anyway let’s email if you want…I am not much with computers. So,I use my own books mostly and I like to do spins off of other recipes and Yours are great for That…Oh yeah, I wanted to ask you if the FACT that your SO stunningly beautiful HAS any thing to do with your success!!! haha LOVE ya, Have a great day!!!

  222. Hi CHUNGAH,

    I like your recipes. It looks amazing, CHUNGAH it’s good that first, it was the hobby and now it’s Job! I’m so glad I found you on websites. Your recipes are looking so delicious and make easy for everybody. Keep cooking!

  223. I absolutely adore your cooking, I just got married a couple of years ago and never cooked in my life. Until I got married I always thought cooking was so hard but you make it so easy. I never thought I would be making foods that I do today. My husband loves it, my family loves it, I even take your food to parties and they always want my recipes. Damn Delicious is amazing. The food is easy and tastes amazing. Chungah Rhee you are amazing. Thank you for all that you do. Thanks to you I actually enjoy cooking. 

  224. I haven’t tried any of your recipes but they all look & sound yummy. Will order your cookbook for sure. Thanks for all your help. 

  225. WoW!! JUST now discovered your site…. I am in total AWE of your recipes, and I’ve gone thru about a ream of paper (so far) printing off just the ones that immediately call to me…. I shudder to think what I’m going to have when I’ve thoroughly gone thru all your recipes (like that will ever happen…)

    Thank you for this amazing website – I will be eating better and spending less time at it than before because of you!!! Hogs and quiches to you! 😀

  226. I’m the weirdo who found the cookbook before the website. But, then again, I do work in a bookstore, so… The chocolate chip muffin recipe is AMAZING, though I have yet to make them with chocolate chips – made them once with blueberries and blackberries, then again half that and the other half lemon blueberry. The bacon wrapped scallops were RIDICULOUS. Will be trying lemon butter scallops, spaghetti carbonara, and tortellini soup this week. Thanks for an amazing cookbook!

  227. Found firecracker chicken!  Crazy good, can’t wait to try more!  

  228. Thanks for the best food website ever (not joking…I make one of your recipes near every night). It is honestly so refreshing to find a place that has normal ingredients that I have on hand (usually) and that doesn’t take an eternity to make or require a rocket scientist to decipher. I have 2 small kids and all of your recipes are child approved and make it easier for me as a mom to come home after a long day at work and put a good meal on the table. I’m extremely thankful for all that you do!

  229. This is my new favorite website!! Finally feel like I’m learning to cook and gaining confidence in my ability to do so.  So far have made 6 dishes off of here in the last couple weeks and they’ve all turned out so good!!   Thank you so much!!

  230. I can’t even remember how I found your website but everything I ‘ve made has ,like you say,Damn Delicious.So much so I am buying your cookbook.Your recipes are just what I am looking for,quick,easy everyday recipes with everyday ingredients.I signed up to get your emails and last Sunday you sent Greek Chicken Soup.Not knowing what I was going to make that night,I looked at the ingredient list and had everything in my kitchen which was simple everyday ingredients.It was Delicious! I have always struggled to make my chicken noodle soup have flavor ,even though this does not have noodles it will replace my chicken noodle soup.Thanks for your Fantastic recipes!

  231. Chungah,
    I am obsessed with your website, your recipes are easy, fun, and healthy and colorful.  The recipes certainly help make my life as a stay at home mom easy, and they make it seem like I spent all day slaving over a hot stove.  Keep the yummy recipes coming!
    Looking forward to the next up and coming damn delicious recipes!
    Jenn in CT

  232. My daughter who is a fantastic cook introduced me to your website.  I love your recipes because they are quick, easy to fix and usually with ingredients I have or can get in our rural area!  They always taste amazing and I rarely change anything, which is unusual for me!  Whether I am looking for something special or just for my husband and myself, I can always count on your site to give me a good suggestion.  Please keep up the good work and keep adding those recipes!!! They are absolutely amazing and definitely Damn Delicious!!!

  233. Hi CHUNGAH,

    I just came across your Damn Delicious recipes, while looking for a different recipe for dinner tonight. My husband and I are retired. We were in the restaurant business for thirty five years. He was just commenting yesterday for me to prepare some different recipes. I am anxious to try some of the recipes that many have mentioned in their e-mails. I will also order your new cookbook. I salute you for writing a cookbook, this is something I have wanted to do for years and I have always been working. Now that I have retired I need to get going. Keep up the great job!!

  234. I love your site and make your recipes regularly. One of my resolutions for 2018 is to start using a meal planner in a consistent basis. Are your recipes connected to any of the meal planning apps out there, and if so, which ones? If not, are there any meal apps that you recommend? I’m trying out a few and am inputting my favourite recipes (yours!) by hand, but is there something out there to make it easier! Regardless, if I need to do it by hand I will, ad your recipes are always my go-to recipes for something fast, easy and delicious. 

    • Unfortunately, I am not familiar with any meal apps at this time. Sorry!

    • It’s easy. Select your recipe, click on “Print”, then instead of printing, highlight the recipe, copy it and then paste it into your word processing document then tweak the alignment, font, size, etc….. After doing a few hundred, you’ll get really fast.

      If there’s SHTML frames around the text portion (drives me nuts), paste the text portion into a notepad. That will strip off all the formatting. Then copy and paste that into your word processing document and do as above.

      A convention I established with all my thousands of recipes, is immediately under the recipe’s title in the word document, I copy and paste in the URL so I don’t have to wonder where I got the recipe. When you hit return, it will create an underlined, blue hyperlink to the site so all you have to do is hover over the link, hold control and then left click to go to the page.

      After that, I then copy and paste in the photo so I can see how it’s supposed to present. Hope this gives you an idea. Happy cooking…… Dave

  235. Hi Chungah,

    I’m so sorry that I have never left a message before regarding your recipes, especially since I have
    made many of them and each and every one was very easy to follow and make. They ALL came out Damn Delicious! Thank you for wonderful recipes and a great website!

    A big fan, Coleen

  236. I just tried your recipe for Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil! Phenomenal! So easy and so tasty. Everything was so easy to follow, and it came out better than expected. You have a new fan! Thank you Chungah! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  237. I found your Damn Delicious beef stew recipe on Facebook.  I am a 68 year old, single man and it was very easy to make and was an instant favorite!!  I shared you recipe with friends and they all love it too.  I am going to try more of your recipes now and get out of my rut of cooking the same things week after week.  BUT!!  I am going to make you beef stew again this weekend for New Years 2018…   You are beautiful and your recipes are delightful and easy.  Thank you for saving my palatee…

  238. Hi Chungah, I stumbled across this website a few months back, and am sure glad I did. My husband and I are empty nesters and I had become so tired of cooking especially just for the two of us. We were eating out more and more which has not been good for our waistline or wallets, but since finding your site I feel a surge of renewed interest and enthusiasm for cooking. Your recipes are so easy to follow and are so-well- damn delicious! For the first time I have been able to make an Asian dish that tastes as good as take-out. I even spent part of my quiet Christmas morning making Teriyaki sauce, just for fun! Thank you, Chungah, and God Bless You and yours.

  239. so glad I found your site! Your recipes are amazing and I’m ordering your cookbook 🙂

  240. I’m so glad I found your website. I just stumbled upon it. Last night I made the Slow Cooker Chicken and Corn Chowder and oh my goodness, it was delicious! I love soups and I love cooking with my crockpot. I see so many crockpot soups on your website that I can’t wait to try. Thanks so much!

  241. i don’t even remember how i found your site — i’ve been on it for years, though, and it IS damn delicious! i have one question — did you name Butters after the South Park character?

  242. We LOVE Butters and Sam! We watch all of your stories on Instagram because my daughter loves to catch a glimpse of them. Oh! And we love your recipes too! Great stuff!

  243. Hey there, ,
    Your recipes look amazing. I’m wodering what cheese I could use instead of goat cheese in the cobb salad. I have to stay away from soft cheeses as I am lactose intolerant. Also not keen on Apple cider vinegar for the poppy seed dressing. What could I use instead?

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications. Sorry, Linda!

  244. Hello Chungah. While I thoroughly enjoy your delicious recipes, I hope you do not mind for me to say the following. What I find most “Damn Delicious” here – is you! Thank you.

  245. you have described it well. Your recipes look amazing. I just subscribed to you can’t wait to try some

  246. I’ve never been much of a cook and I can never think of what to make for supper, coming across this site was a miracle for me! All of the recipes look so good & easy to make, I already have a list of the ones I want to try out!
    Thanks for all your hard work on this site, I really look forward to doing a lot more cooking & becoming more comfortable in the kitchen. 🙂

  247. Hi Chungah,

    Asian cooking takes a lot of time over the wok. I don’t like to sweat over the fire in the hot kitchen. I live near the Equator. Your baked recipes with fast frying are ideal. I shall try a few of them with my new small toaster oven, capable of making small meals. Thanks for your recipes and the great ideas.

  248. Love your recipe site. Please add me to your mailing list.

  249. Hey, Chungah! Just had to say that you are a huge inspiration! Love your blog!

  250. Chungah! We’ve just discovered you and your recipes and you’ve changed our family cooking life into something that is so much fun and SO easy! We’ve recently moved from LA back to London, England and having these recipes reminds us so much of our fabulous time in LA. The breakfast burrito especially!
    My husband is Chinese and I’d never consider even trying to cook Asian food as he’s so good at it, but your recipes have given me the confidence to give several of them a go-and all have been a big hit! So a big Thank You from the Li’s in London! Keep up the good work-I now visit your website practically every day!

  251. What brand crockpot do you use?

  252. Your recipes are among the best I’ve tried! 

  253. I love all your recipes! I haven’t made one dish that hasn’t turned out delicious and they are all so easy. Thank you for making my family dinners easy!

  254. I follow you every single day!! I went to culinary school, have worked in commercial kitchens and have 2 kids who are self-proclaimed foodies! Keep doing what you’re doing! I absolutely love your recipes & photos!

  255. i love you

  256. Hi!

    I am new to cooking but just made your lo mein – it was so easy and good! I really appreciate your recipes because I am still learning to cook – but these are all so easy to follow and yummy. Thanks so much!

  257. Hello, 
    So happy to find your DIY dog food receipt.  I too have a Pembrooke Corgi we call Butters, (nickname).  He has been losing weight and I took him off all synthetic dog food.   Going to buy your cook books.  Hope to find more dog food receives.  

  258. You are now in CA? Wow! I have always thought you were located in NYC. Since you have said you have such a small kitchen, then I am to assume you now reside in the Bay area. Is this blog your sole job? If not, what do you do? Thank you for providing us with so many delicious menu items to help round out our busy lives. Kee up the good work.

  259. Hi dear! What brand of slow cooker do you use?? Sorry if you have answered this before

  260. I love your cookbook! I’m doing like the movie “Julia and Julia” and going through page by page making the recipes – everything’s so good, I look forward to each new dish. I’m really trying to cook more simply and healthfully for the family, so thanks for all the great recipes. 🙂

  261. Hi Chungah,

    Oh my gosh, how can I get you (and your trusty steed) to come to sunny Florida (New Smyrna Beach) and cook for me and my Dobie for a week?! Your recipes look amazing and although I doubt I’ll do as good as job as you, I will definitely give it a go. Great job!

  262. So glad I found this site! Cooking out of a tiny tiny college dorm kitchen on a budget this summer and have absolutely LOVED trying out your easy and delicious recipes!

  263. Your recipes are easy to make, use everyday ingredients, and help promote the vanishing art of good ‘home cooking’. The recipes here can be made quickly, and taste great!
    Glad I found your site!

  264. Just came across your website and I printed 15 recipes to try, I love making new things! Hope they come out as awesome as yours do!

  265. Hello! I was just wondering what kind of camera you use for your food shots? They are beautiful!

    • Awwwww, thanks! I am currently shooting with a Canon EOS 6D 20.2MP and a 100mm f/2.8L IS. I only use natural lighting, and I utilize Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 to edit.

  266. CHUNGAH, I am a food and cooking researcher and your Lemon Butter Chicken is a great dish. I found your book on Amazon and I was impressed by the reviews.
    Your Chicken Lettuce Wraps are the hit on YouTube along with your Korean Beef.

    It is obvious that your success is the simple style & the humble kitchen much like Rachel Khoo in Paris.
    Stay true to your roots & perhaps talk to us a little more on youTube.
    Best Wishes from Hervey Bay Australia & Chanthaburi Thailand,

  267. Love your recipes!  Simple but delicious!  Would LOVE healthy recipes cooking for two people.  Its just me and my teenage daughter and although I have tried many of your recipes (love the chicken, especially) I find that I’m making way too much food just for us.

  268. Dear Chungah,
    I love your recipes and have tried lots of them! I am cooking for myself since my husband passed away 2 years ago. I was lost for awhile and didn’t feel like eating most of the time or just grabbed junk food. My husband was the cook for the two of us, and I hadn’t had to fend for myself in 32 years! But your recipes are so simple to prepare and delicious I really enjoy following your blog and trying your recipes. Last week I prepared the Zucchini Sheet pan with panko and marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese to accompany a pork roll stuffed with apricots, cranraisins,and pecans I purchased at Sprouts, it all was super good. Thank You and keep up the good work! You are inspirational!

  269. Is that lobster in your intro? Rock out….I wondered about all that bacon grease so I will precook a bit…..first time to blog – so happy to know about you – congratulations and best wishes to you and butters

  270. I love your recipes Chungah. My wife and I used to entertain a lot and she was a phenomenal cook. Since she passed away 3 years ago I live by myself in Toronto close to my 2 children and their families in Toronto, Canada. I still love cooking and cook for my children. I made “Cheater Pho” which was a big hit. It was even better than the real Pho!!! Thanks.

  271. Hi Chungah, you’re recipes look amazing! Are they low cal, low carb or 21 Day Fix approved? 

  272. Chungah, I have had to change my diet recently due to health issues. I always enjoy your recipes and they are truly simple! I cook them time and time again. Thanks again for allowing us into your kitchen!

  273. I just saw that you have your own cookbook out. How exciting for you as well as me since I just purchased it and cannot wait until it arrives. You make fabulous dishes that are, well….DAMN DELICIOUS!

  274. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you !!
    You are just what I’ve been looking for so excited to have found your blog…. love the meal prep ideas xoxo

  275. Hello Chungah,

    Came across your blog purely by chance and feel compelled to say, “Although you have SOOOOOOO many amazing recipes…YOU, by far, are the MOST “Damn Delicious” thing here!!!! Such a BEAUTIFUL and YUMMY Woman…Stunning facial features, an intoxicating smile and a gorgeous little body 🙂

  276. I found this site by accident when I wanted to compare a recipe I had for Potstickers. I was amazed at the recipes you had. I have a busy schedule but our family prefer home-cooked meals. It was a headache planning ahead , so the days became predictable and boring. NOT ANYMORE. I surprise the family with your quick and easy dishes and they are a hit every time.SO DELICIOUS, but I give you the credit . Thanks Chungah keep up the good work

  277. This blog is such an inspiration to other food bloggers like me. Your pix are phenomenal and so are your dishes! I like your wide variety of food selection and how it encourages people to cook.

  278. I’ve been reading your recipes and loving the results for years! The simplicity is so great and always results in some Damn Delicious food! Keep on doing what you’re doing, you’re rocking it! Oh, and your dogs are Damn Adorable!

  279. Where can I find that recipe for that chicken, 4th picture down. Also lol at “Butters”, that’s my favorite South Park character.

  280. Who are you? Well who ever you are I love your site and your food look SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Damn Delicious keep up the good work I will now bookmark YOU

  281. Hi!

    I’m amazed how you cook the steak and roast vegetable together in the oven. I never thought about that way. It is a brilliant idea.

  282. You are wicked amazing. My lap-cat is soaked with my drool . And the best part? SO many easy recipes. My daughter in law just had a baby and although I help a lot with meals she really just wants to throw something together quickly. I hooked her up with your site. Keep em coming!
    Oh! And THANKS!!!!

  283. I don’t think the nutritional values listed for your bang bang shrimp pasta recipe are correct.  Specifically the carbohydrate value of 373.3 grams per serving?

    Recipe looks amazing though, can’t wait to try it.

  284. Home sick for the day and what do I do, I browse for recipes while in bed. Stumbled upon your site over an hour ago and haven’t left. Looking forward to the weekend in the kitchen.

    I’ve lived in rural Haiti for 20 years and only in the last 5 years, when we got a solar powered freezer) did I get into cooking. I found that a well stocked pantry is essential here as the nearest decent grocery store is over 3 hours away. Thank you for these wonderful looking recipes. Just told my wife I have no idea how I will pick one to begin with. Great photos as well.

  285. Love your recipes! I have had many, many Pinterest fails (my poor husband, lol!) but I have made multiple dishes from your blog and we love them! The instructions are easy to follow, the ingredients are simple, and they turn out amazing. Thank you! 🙂

  286. Beautiful lady and a top-rated gourmet artist. Love your blog, Chungah! 🙂

  287. I love your blog. And since you are a corgi mom (as am I), you must be a wonderful person. 🙂

  288. Your  recipes are amazing.  I’m looking for the lobster tail recipe,  that you have in your photo. Looks delicious.  Where  can I find it. I have no idea how to cook lobster. Thanks. 

  289. Just came across your website. I can’t wait to try your recipes. I am always looking for something quick, healthy and simple to make. Thank you.

  290. Thank you for sharing these great recipes! I feel like a gourmet cook now, and I love that most recipes rarely call for ingredients I don’t already have on hand. I hope you continue to post more recipes.

  291. I absolutely loooove your recipes. Yours is the only website I now go to for recipes. Thank you. Keep cooking!!!!!!

  292. Hello Chungah! I’m in SoCal and made the Chicken Tortellini Soup tonight. It was delicious and very healthy. We just got back from Hawaii and need to eat healthy for a while to offset all the treats we had there and your soup recipe definitely hit the spot! Love your blog!!

  293. I love that I can trust that every recipe I use from this site will turn out delicious! When scrolling through recipes on the internet and I see one from Damn Delicious I know I will have most of the ingredients and it will taste fantastic! Thank you! I will be purchasing your cookbook. You are awesome!

  294. I just wanted to say thank you. I love your recipes, they are simple and easy to follow. I have made so many of your recipes and I have loved every single one. Keep them coming.

  295. I love your photography! Do you mind sharing what kind of camera / lens you use for your images?

    • Thank you! I am currently shooting with a Canon EOS 6D 20.2MP and a 100mm f/2.8L IS. I only use natural lighting, and I utilize Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 to edit.

  296. Congratulations on the cook book Chungah!! You are an inspiration to people like me, who dream of becoming a food blogger one day soon! I have tried many of your recipes and I can’t wait to buy your cook book! Your PF Chang’s Lettuce Wrap Recipe is a hands down favorite in our household. Thank you for all of your great recipes!

  297. Keep up the great work you are doing: there can’t be too many great healthy recipes.
    Love the dog, we have three of them.

  298. I love your blog! I love that the ingredients are ones I use over and over, instead of ones I use once that end up collecting dust on the shelf. There’s sooo much flavor in everything I’ve tried. If only my husband was not so picky, I would get to try a lot more. 🙂 
    Keep them coming!!

  299. Korean Beef Bowl. High fives from our family. Including our five year old son. We all LOVED it. It also gave us to a chance to talk to him about Korean culture and food.

    Thanks for sharing your recipes. We’ll definitely make this one again (so so easy and so so delicious) and will look for others to try. 

  300. Wonderful recipes–will be adding them to my collection, & will get your cookbook too,
    to give my grandaughter (in college) for Xmas. She loves Asian (inspired) food & cooking.
    I saw you on the USC Trojan website, as I’m an ‘ancient’ Trojan (1953). ‘Cook ON’—!!

  301. I came upon your recipe for Apple Sangria. Looks tasty, but do you use and alcohol apple cider or apple juice?

  302. Looking at cauliflower pizza crust recipes I clicked on your site. Your recipe is so much simpler than others I have tried. Then I watch the video re the baked chicken and it made it SO simple to follow. Now, my question is I am Paleo. I recognize that your site is not dedicated to that aspect of food and cooking. Without having to read thru endless recipes, how much of your cooking would you say is either Paleo friendly or adaptable?

    • Unfortunately, it is really difficult to say as my recipes are not specifically tailored for the Paleo diet. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  303. That comment sounds terrible.  I didn’t mean it to sound like it reads.  You’re beautiful, and not just from the side!  I should have elaborated. I’m a professional photographer and I see so much more beauty in people than they see in themselves. I’m one to talk…you’ll never see a photo of me. But, just wanted to let you know that you shouldn’t holdback or have any inhibitions.  Again, so sorry for the way that first comment sounded. 

    • LOL, I’m a photographer also and I wanted to say the same thing. There needs to be a photo or two looking at the camera so a personal connection is made. 

  304. Great site….but why are you always looking to the side in your photos?  

  305. hey beautiful

  306. Stumbled across your website while looking for some easy lunch ideas. I immediately fell in love with so many of your recipes. It also doesn’t hurt when a picture of Butter is thrown in there! I love corgi’s so much! He is too cute! Thanks for so many awesome recipes!

  307. This “newer” website of yours is SO MUCH BETTER!!! Everything loads faster w/ no problems; THANK YOU!!

  308. Hi Chungah,
    I started following your blog when my husband and I lived in Ecuador for three months a few years ago. I have enjoyed many of your ideas. The roasted veggies look great, think I’ll make them with my supper meal tonight. We live in northern Alberta, Canada. It’s only mid October and there is a snow storm going on here as I write this.

  309. Have you ever made the Lemon Butter Chicken with any other kinds of chicken besides thighs?


  310. I have tried your Parmesan Chicken with red potatos twice and it has been a huge success, sooo easy!  And delicious.  Thanks for that recipe it will come with me when ai travel to see my family in Australia and Malaysia!

  311. Hi. I have many of your recipes and they are delicious! BTW, we have the same backsplash, black counters and white
    cabinets..mine with a splash of red! This looks delicious. I going to try it soon. Looking forward to more.

  312. I am so glad I stumbled upon your page through Pinterest! What an awesome website! I love everything I have seen so far. I even made one of your dishes for dinner tonight and it was Damn Delicious, even my picky 18 month old toddler enjoyed it!!! I have recently become more interested in cooking after having our son, I’ve always been a baker at heart, and I’m so excited about your recipes and the creativity they inspire!
    Promptly ordered your cookbook, and I will be paitently (or impatiently!) awaiting its arrival! Can’t wait to wake up and try a breakfast recipe! Thanks so much! Look forward to exploring more!

  313. I am a dude and I don’t really cook much but Chungah your recipes made me an instant culinary hero! Wife is expecting so I hope to make her some homemade meals so she can eat well. At first I was trying (my best) to replicate her dishes.. Now I’m making my own (Errrr.. With your help of course)

    Thanks Chungah! Keep up the good and inspiring work! Love it!

  314. I received my cookbook but the cover is on backwards. Has this happened to anyone else.

  315. Received my cookbook yesterday and can’t wait and made the “Garlic-Parmesan Roasted Broccoli” tonight. It was perfect! Can’t wait to try more this weekend…THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

  316. Well , I saw the corgi and I was sold. Cookbook ordered less than 2 minutes later. We share the same loves–corgis and food. My corgi is named Tater. We will send pictures your way when the cookbook arrives!!

  317. YAY, the cookbook arrived! I can’t wait to go through it.

  318. Chungah, I found your website with a google search for lettuce wraps and then when I saw the PF Chang’s lettuce wrap recipe and the comments I was sold so I made it and it was so delicious. So delicious in fact, that I decided to order your “Damn Delicious” book from Amazon Prime.
    Great website!!!

  319. Chungah,
    You are Damn Amazing. Your recipes are easy and so damn delicious. I am from the South and love to make it simply and easy when preparing dinner or for a party. I can not wait for your cookbook. I will be buying six copies to give five away for Christmas gifts to my family. I wish you the best and I also love your Corgi, Butters.

  320. My husband is a bread maker but can’t make soup, so long ago I asked him to please make anything for dinner, but not soup. My good friend and neighbor can only cook by recipe, so she emailed him yours for the slow cooker Tomato, Kale and Quinoa that she had found and was making this weekend. As soon as I looked I it I recognized it as yours so I said he could make it last night (Tuesday). You see, I was working until late and my daughter and SIL were arriving after a 10 hour trip bringing down their chickens, a large old lame dog and their anxious cat to stay for 2 weeks and keep setting up our cabin as their new home (next come the 1# – 2# fish they harvest they catch for food and that’ll be a historic adventure I bet). The soup turned out PERFECT! As Tony says, Digna’s not keen on Quinoa, so he substituted a handful of Barley instead. It was still PERFECT! First soup he’s ever made that is just delicious. So thanks. And now another follower of your recipes I bet. When his crayfish are grown and ready to harvest he’ll be looking up some new recipes and see if you have any ideas for him to use. His only recipes are Cajun New Orleans style. Me? I won’t be letting you know how they turn out because I’ll have to leave home for the day/night since I’m very allergic (anaphylactic) to any crustacian. So, Chungah, thanks for the great soup!

  321. Your recipes look amazing. I just subscribed to you can’t wait to try some

  322. I love you, your dog and your simple recipes!  I’m enamored with your refreshing style . . easy does it!
    Can’t wait for those scallops to melt in my mouth!

    Bravo and thank you so much!

    Mary Jane 

  323. Thanks for sharing all of your amazing recipes! You’re my “go to” site for everyday cooking! Wish there was a Damn Delicious app!! 

  324. THANK YOU Chungah!!!  I first came to your website when I Googled “ginger salmon recipe” and it led me to your Sesame Ginger Salmon recipe.  That recipe is fabulous!  I made it again last weekend (on the grill) for 20 people and they all raved about it.  Here is what I want to share with you and your readers: salmon holds together well enough that it can be grilled directly on the grate.  Cedar planks are not necessary.  Plus you get some charring of the surface which is nice.  I use a digital meat thermometer and cook to a center temp of 130 to 135°F.  Cut the salmon fillets into sections barely wider than your spatula so the meat is well supported when turning it.  The salmon is ready to turn when the edges start to turn white.  Salmon can be safely turned once or twice; more than that and it may fall apart.  The thermometer I recommend is ThermoWorks’ model RT301WA, which is available on the the ThermoWorks website for about $20.

  325. Well I was looking at my emails and you cooking recipes came on and I was very interest thank you.
