Here in Pittsburgh we eat more than 11 times the pierogies of any other city in the nation, according to a recent survey, with pierogi fillings ranging from standard potato and cheese to sweet prune. A popular Pittsburgh business, Pierogies Plus, ships pierogies as far away as Alaska and Hawaii. The Pittsburgh Pirates even hold a pierogi race during the bottom of the 5th inning at every Pirates home game. Sour cream in the dough is a favorite secret of many Pittsburgh pierogi makers.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles | annie's cooking lab Last weekend a friend I decided to neglect our school work and go for a hike in the snow followed by dinner and a movie at my house. I had all the ingredients on hand for some tasty Corn and Cheese Chowder which was perfect way to warm up after a cold hike. My friend said she’d be in charge of bringing ingredients for us to make dessert and I was so excited to see that she’d picked out these truffles! Eating the cookie dough is usually one of the best parts of making cookies, but then you feel bad because you’re supposed to be making cookies- not snacking on the dough! These cute little truffles taste just like cookie dough and since they don’t have any eggs, they’re totally safe to eat. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Ingredients Directions Use an electric mixer to cream the butter and brown sugar , add the vanilla.

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes “Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. The first players up are: a few Russet potatoes (I’m sure other varieties will work equally as well), Parmigiano-Reggiano and butter. Start by scrubbing your potatoes good and clean. Then, using a sharp knife, make slices across the potato, being sure to stop before you reach its bottom. Cut up your butter. Then do the same with the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Next, open the potatoes’ crevices and shove the parmesan and butter, alternating between the two. When they’re done baking, you’re still a few minutes away from cheesy gloriousness! Description

Baked Hot Chocolate Remember when you were a kid and you would be outside in the snow for hours, sledding and making snow angels and generally clowning around until your mittens were caked with snow, and you couldn’t feel your ears, and there was melted snow in your snow boots? And you would go inside and by the time you had peeled off your snowsuit and your damp socks and your hat with the pom-poms and your hair was wild with static electricity and your nose was bright pink and you were out of breath from dragging the sled up the hill 500 times and screaming with excitement all the way down, your mama had a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows melting on top all ready for you? Yep, I remember that. So, what if you could recreate that perfect cup of hot chocolate, but instead of finding hot cocoa under the marshmallows, you spooned up a perfect bite of warm, slightly creamy chocolate cake instead? Baked hot chocolate can just do that to a person! Ingredients 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips 4 large eggs

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls I have been bad. I have been very, very bad. I took a roll of those refrigerated cinnamon rolls – the one that pops open when you pull the paper off the roll. And I ate one. And it was GOOD. I found this recipe while doing one of my favorite things to do on the computer, which is Googling the word ‘bacon.” A couple of notes on this one. I think that is all I have to say about this one. Ingredients 1 package refrigerated cinnamon rolls (the kind in the tube) 8 slices bacon (and if you like your bacon well done, cook it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes) Directions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
