Perogie Recipes - How to Make Authentic Homemade Pierogies - Pittsburgh Pierogies
Whether you spell it pierogi, piroghi or pierogie, authentic homemade pierogies are a delicious treat and a Pittsburgh tradition. 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.

Creamy Pesto Tomato Bites I’ve got another fun snack idea for you today, with just three ingredients! These little creamy pesto tomato bites are so simple to make, and even more fun to eat. These make great before dinner bites, after school snacks, and even great appetizers for parties. I love making them because they are so simple, and people will think you went to way more effort to make them than you actually did. First, you start with some cherry tomatoes. I try and get bigger ones, if I can find them, just because that makes less work for me. Green Kitchen Stories & Broccoli Pesto © 2011 Green Kitchen Stories If I say pesto you say … broccoli?!

Dang you Energy… Copycat Panera Mac and Cheese (one pan!) - Rachel Cooks Copycat Panera Mac and Cheese (one pan!) This copycat Panera Mac and Cheese tastes just like the stuff you buy in the famous bakery but is easy to make at home and only requires one pan! So, let’s just start this by saying that our Panera Bread has a drive-thru. It’s bad for my wallet. I don’t like fast-food, but I like food to be fast. Especially with two kids and there is NO way I’m getting out of the car with both kids to grab food.

Pesto Yogurt Chicken Kebabs - Garnish with Lemon These Pesto Yogurt Chicken Kebabs stay tender on the grill thanks to a leisurely marinade in protein-rich Greek yogurt and basil pesto. I shivered just a bit when I turned the page on the calendar this month. Not because I was cold, mind you, but because I realized that my kids only have a handful of days of school remaining. Boy-Approved Spiked Pasta (Spaghetti with Vodka Cream Sauce) My boyfriend P has a busy, active job and is often too busy to eat a big lunch, if any lunch at all. It's no surprise then that he comes home hungry at only 5 p.m. For those days especially, I have a list of go-to meals that can be whipped up in no time. And while P's sweet enough to try almost anything I cook, I reserve this list for only the dishes he gets excited about.

Pad Thai for beginners Pad Thai is one of the most popular Thai dishes, perhaps second only to Tom Yum Goong. It’s also one of the most requested recipes here on Chez Pim. Why, then, has it taken me this long to post this recipe, you asked? I don’t know…perhaps it’s because I don’t actually have a recipe! Cheddar and Herb Biscuits I am well aware that there are approximately a million versions of these delightful biscuits roaming around online. However, when my friend Lesli emailed me to tell me she had “rocked it” with the cheddar biscuit and did I want the recipe…how could I say no? I was sure they would excel above the other versions I had tried before. And they absolutely did. Which should be no surprise since Lesli is an amazing cook and I should know to trust her judgment completely when she’s rocked anything in the kitchen. Light and tender, cheesy and buttery, these drop biscuits are a breeze to make and nearly melt in your mouth.

Chorizo Chile Poppers - Garnish with Lemon Smoky heat and cool lime crema make these Chorizo Chile Poppers irresistible little bites. Did you catch any of our Miami fun on Instagram last week? We were in town for the BlogHer Food conference and delighted in dipping our toes in the sands of South Beach, eating our way through the flavors of the city and meeting and catching up with friends, both old and new. I had never visited Miami before, but you can be sure I’ll be back. Naturally Flavored Water Say goodbye to soda, juice, and bottled water with these refreshing, healthy flavors! I'm keeping 2-3 flavors of this "spa water" in my fridge now, so I have a variety to motivate me to drink more water. I was a hardcore Dr. Pepper girl for years. Then I gave up regular soda because of the high sugar content and switched to diet soda. Next we were warned to avoid the chemicals in diet soda; and more recently studies have indicated that diet soda actually causes rather than prevents weight gain (source).
