My son loves pierogi and we are lucky to have a really good pierogi place nearby. However, I decided to try and make some pierogi myself and I was surprised of how easy it is to make pierogi. Mine don’t look as polished yet but I can assure you that they taste delicious.
Tomorrow, October 8, is actually National Pierogi Day so what better timing to try making some?

If you are looking for an appetizer idea this is a great option. It’s easy to make and you can prepare in advance, who doesn’t like that? Also, it’s a one pot dish (if you exclude the strainer) so in my mom of 3 world this would be a perfect dish – minimum effort, no dishes to clean and tastes great.

I love salmon! It’s easy to cook and tastes delicious, my entire family loves it so it’s a win-win dinner option for us. It goes well with so many sides – my favorite include mashed potatoes, rice, farro, steamed potatoes, steamed veggies – or you can serve it over a salad; leftovers can be used in our Baked Salmon Patties recipe. This time I tried a creamy spinach sauce and we served it with Farro and a red cabbage salad. It was so good that I completely forgot to take a picture of the plated meal but i’ll do so next time I cook it.

Believe it or not BBQ Sauce is not the only sauce that goes with ribs. Next time you grill I challenge you to leave the BBQ sauce away and try to find something new, your own unique home recipe – maybe it’s a garlic and yogurt sauce, or a grilled pineapple and lemon sauce or maybe it’s a guacamole sauce. You will see that the different sauces you use will change the flavor and looks of the dish and it will be like a new dish every time. Ours is really simple and it includes ingredients that you find in any refrigerator – ketchup, mustard, sour cream and garlic.

A great idea for dinner or lunch these Baked Salmon Patties are delicious. You can serve them as an appetizer, over salad or in a bun. I made a yogurt – garlic – dill dipping sauce to go with the patties and they were a great success at the table. The fresh salmon can be substituted with canned salmon or even leftover salmon (already cooked)

Today was a chilly and windy day so what better way to warm and get cozy for winter than with a cup of fresh acorn squash soup and a piece of warm homemade bread.

One of my favorite dips and this was a good dish for my youngest (2 years old) to eat a good amount of garlic at the start of the cold season.

Can’t believe the summer is almost over and the morning low temperatures are definitely make everything feel like fall. Since our garden tomatoes are taking over all our meals (we eat everything tomato these days – tomato salad, pasta and tomato sauce, tomato juice, tomato and mozzarella, tomato everything) I decided to not let anything go to waste and made my sons favorite soup – tomato soup. I froze half of it in small containers so the kids can have this in a few days or weeks or whenever they crave it; plus it will also save me making a meal for them.
