Bibimbab (Korean Rice and Vegetables)

Bibimbab (or bi bim bap) is a collection of several tasty foods arranged on top of a bowl of rice. Traditionally, beef would be one of the toppings and a fried egg would be placed over the rice.

And my maternal grandmother would proudly remind me of her brothers, the Marcils, who ran a bakery in the small town back east where my mother grew up. Later, […]
