Potato and Cheese Pierogi Recipe

Potato and Cheese Pierogi Recipe
Pierogi are traditional Polish noodle dumplings, filled with a variety of classic sweet and savory mixtures. For this recipe, we've chosen to make a basic potato-cheese filling and serve them as a side dish topped with sour cream, garlic and chive sauce. Our family recipe, combined with a fairly standard dough preparation method, produces an exceptionally light and tender finished product. The secret? Pinching off portions of dough and rolling them individually to avoid overworking it. 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting3 large eggs2 tablespoons sour cream3/4 to 1 cup water 1-1/2 lbs baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices2 tablespoons unsalted butter1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil1 small sweet onion, chopped1 clove garlic, minced1/4 teaspoon dried thyme3/4 to 1 cup grated dry farmer's cheeseKosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1/2 stick butter, cut into 1 tablespoon portions1 recipe Sour Cream Garlic-Chive Sauce For the dough: Serving Suggestion

50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes (for Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor's Porch Day) (Originally posted with 20 Zucchini Recipes; updated with more favorites in August 2013.) It may not be an official government holiday, but gardeners everywhere celebrate August 8 as Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor's Porch Day. Several years ago I did a zucchini round-up in honor of the day, but since then I've made so many more recipes with zucchini that I decided to give that post a make-over and update it with some of my new favorites. You still have a few more days before you need to start sneaking the zucchini on to the neighbor's porch, so maybe these recipes can help, or at least you can leave the neighbors a recipe idea along with that zucchini! I've divided the recipes into categories this time to help you find something you'll like.

Fifteen Spatulas Did you know that eggplant is a berry?!? I love learning little food facts like that. Eggplant can be a little bit tricky sometimes. It can be epically delicious when it’s done right, but what else can you do besides the typical eggplant parmesan where you fry it up and pile on lots of cheese and sauce? How about grill it and roll it up with a creamy ricotta basil filling? It’s a little healthier and you don’t miss out on any flavor. It’s all about the side dishes Hi Everyone, they can make or break a meal. Very often, they are the most memorable things about a meal; without them, let’s just say that your meal will be average with the ham, turkey, roast pork, beef or chicken all standing alone. Lonely. Side dishes are headliners in their own right. Each holiday, whether it is Christmas, Easter, Eid, Diwali or Independence, the topic centres on food – what to cook, what traditional dishes to make and what new things to try. We get caught up in a frenzy of pre-ordering meat.

Stuffed Zucchini I like the simple things in life. Simple ingredients, simple techniques, maximum flavor. But I guess you know that by now. Turkey Day Troubles - Installment #2 I just finished reading a book (Cooking for Mr. Latte) written by Amanda Hesser, a food writer for the New York Times. In one of her chapters she writes, "I have a few favorite dishes, I rarely make them." Recipe for Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake When I noticed how many people are visiting my round-up of 20 Zucchini Recipes I knew it was time to share this fantastic new zucchini recipe called Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, recommended by my sister Pam. She found the recipe in Penzeys Back to School 2011 Catalog , where it was submitted by Karen Niessing. Pam changed the recipe a little and then I changed it a tiny bit more, and we were both impressed with how this very basic idea of tossing zucchini with a few fresh and dried herbs and cheese and then baking it can produce a dish that's so delicious.

Blog Chef It is no secret that I have an obsession with Chinese cuisine. The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet.

Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta Do you ever look in your pantry and have an ingredient that you tend to use for the same dish every single time? When it comes to Marsala wine, my go to dish is naturally Chicken Marsala. I've made a few different versions but this Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta is the most favorite of my husband. The creamy Marsala sauce with caramelized mushrooms and onions really make it even more comforting. It's a dish you can make during the week for family and it's even good enough for company...
