Three ingredients and about five minutes of your time. That’s all you need for this dessert.

Sometimes inspiration comes at odd moments. DH and I were driving home from dinner and my mind wandered off and suddenly this thought of making a super easy Nutella pudding just appeared in my head. Lucky for me, we had one last ripe avocado sitting at home. Technically it was DH’s avocado, but now that we’re married, his stuff is my stuff right?

As soon as we got home, I made a beeline for the kitchen to try out my newest idea. And success!

H Mart Food Court


H Mart has only been open a few weeks, but I’ve already been there several times. (You can read my grand opening post here.)  On the one hand, I’m saving tons of money on my grocery bills. I love the ridiculously cheap produce (spinach bunches 10 for $.99, red leaf lettuce heads $.25 each, broccoli $.20/lb!). But then I stop by Paris Baguette and end up buying and spending much  more than I care to reveal on their French pastries and baked goods.

I’ve been wanting to visit the food court, so we finally stopped in the other night. I haven’t been really impressed with the food court inside Zion, so I was hoping H Mart’s would be better.

It’s a pretty small area. On the plus side, there’s complimentary kimchee for customers dining there.

The noodle bowl prices seemed pretty reasonable, cheaper than most restaurants.I thought the tofu stew prices were a little high, since they cost the same as the large bowls of noodles

Noodles with Black Soybean Sauce

My search continues to find a good version of the blackbean soybean sauce jajiang. I really enjoyed the flavor of the sauce here but the consistency was off. It had too much cornstarch, resulting in lot of gelatinous chunks which I did not find appetizing. The noodles were nice and thick and a good texture to accompany the sauce.


I made this last year for the first time, but it’s a recipe worth sharing again. The winter weather and tree decorating has put me in a permanent hot chocolate mood. Out of all the hot chocolate beverages, my favorite is this Nutella one.
