That would be me, Mrs. Moglie. Married to a native Italian, Mr. Marito.
Mother to a daughter in high school, Ms. SmartyPants and a son in middle school, Mr. Uometto.
Employed at a private British School as an English teacher and Coordinator of Children's Studies.
Part of a small, but growing Protestant church in Frascati, a small town in the hills just outside of Rome.

This is where I sometimes gripe, complain and grumble about the things I dislike, have yet to get used to or simply don't understand about bella Italia.
I do, however, have many people, places and things that I dearly love and I am more than aware of being blessed by each and every one of them.
Also - a few helpful posts for visitors to Rome or for newly arrived ex pats. Check the side bar for tags. I've even some recipes that I've borrowed, tweaked or invented. One thing I've come to love about Italy is how it's changed the way I eat - slow food !! Although ... I do miss Taco Bell ... and Jack in The Box ... and KFC ... and ::sigh::
Thanks for stopping by !!

Here are a few of the types of 김치 kimchi I'm able to make at home

And here (BELOW) are some examples of 반찬 
Korean side dishes that I've had the pleasure of eating at
금강산 (Diamond Mountain) Restaurant

Kimbap, the lesser known Korean food similar dish to Japan's Sushi

Rice for 김밥 Kimbap is not seasoned with vinegar - only salt, sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds
