Salon de Ddalki | Strawberry Salon

Strawberry, I ❤ you. There’s an amazing phenomenon that happens in Seoul during the winter strawberry season. The grand hotels of this great city decided several years ago that just buying strawberries in the local mart was not enough to truly enjoy this delicious season. So, as if in protest, they all began having gorgeous strawberry buffets all around the city. Just do a search for strawberry buffets in Seoul and you’ll see examples from the Intercontinental, Lotte Hotel, Renaissance Seoul and the JW Marriott.  And it was at the last one, the JW Marriot,  I found myself last weekend, much to my inner child’s delight!

Vegan | Strawberry Banana Bread

Quick breads are the best….dessert, snack, breakfast…the best.  I also love the whole “dump everything into this bowl and mix it up then bake it” kind of recipe. It’s the lazy-lady’s everything.

Eat some quick bread and get outside!
