Grandma's Polish Perogies
Q: How do you tell the tall, sweet Polish man in your life that you're secretly in love with him? A: Make him 12 dozen pierogies as a surprise while he's at work. Then, just to cinch the deal, make his family 12 more dozen for Christmas. His Great-Grandma passed away a couple of years ago, and with her took her pierogie recipe. I scoured the internet for a close replacement, and the "Grandma" part of this recipe caught my eye. Three years later I owe my wonderful, loving three-year relationship to "Grandma's Polish Pierogies". But enough about my personal life, let's discuss the recipe. As this was my first attempt to make pierogies, I left the dough as-is, and found it to be light, flaky and flavorful. The filling, however, is another story. I decided to get a bit creative with some (pesto/asiago, bacon/irish cheddar), while sticking with the tried-and-true recipes for the others. All-in-all I spent nine hours making these little delicacies, and it was worth every minute. Have fun!

Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Orzo
Whenever I used to come home from work travels my husband would have a pint of Safeway's orzo/spinach salad waiting for me in the airport. Sweet, right? But expensive. I'm a big orzo fan, and in an effort to cut down on our monthly food costs I decided to give this recipe a whirl. This is an A in my book, and was easily transformed into an A+ with some freshly chopped spinach and feta cheese (combined with or in lieu of Parmesan; your choice). Plus, it was only $5.00 to make enough orzo salad for my husband and I for the entire week! Score!

Cherry Crumble
My first review! I didn't use cherries, instead opting for frozen raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. I also added a bit of sugar and cinnamon to the berries and doubled the recipe. This recipe is absolutely delicious, but make sure you taste as you go. Some reviewers are stating their final product was less than stellar, and to the nay-sayers I would have to ask: Did you taste the topping as you made it and before baking? Because I found myself tweaking to my personal preferences. Try it!
