Ukrainian Olha's Varenyky (Perogies)

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Fantastic recipe - thank you for this one Olga. I spent the first half of my life in Ukraine second in US, but there's no one to teach me our authentic Ukrainian cuisine as my grandmother did all the cooking and she's passed away before I came of age. I only have wonderful memories of helping out in the kitchen as a child. One of the best meals were varenyky!! I treasure every bit of a clue I can find in terms of Ukrainian cooking- PLEASE KEEP 'EM COMING :)

Ukrainian Filled Halushky Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
This is interesting! I'm going to try this recipe out for sure! Mainly, I wanted to comment on the review left by Beacon - whatever you are describing there ( was it noodles with cabbage?), is NOT halushky!!!!!!! As a full blooded Ukrainian, born and raised there I can tell you that halushky, as Olga put it best: "... is a Ukrainian name for dumplings made of batter or thick dough mixture. Various ingredients are added for tenderness, texture, flavor, and food value. They are served with a stew, or roast and gravy, or as a side dish". My grandmother used to make soup with halushky (or z halushkamy for those of us that speak Ukrainian :) Personally, I'm always looking for an authentic Ukrainian recipe with a twist - thank you for this one Olga.
