About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Pierogi, ravioli, cookies, jam bars, soups, fun pizzas, and ethnic vegetarian dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Polish and we love to get together to make pierogi. For my wedding, my family and friends made over 1000 of these delicious little pockets of heaven! Of course, a lot of wine will be present regardless of what we cook/bake.

Eggplant Parmesan II
An All-Star Recipe! The eggplant was crisp, tasty, easy and healthful. I made my own breadcrumbs with day-old ciabatta, by pulsing it in my food processor, roasting them in a dry frying pan, adding oregano at the end. At the same time, I pulsed one clove of garlic then added the bread crumbs and pulsed for a few more seconds. The crumbs were of various sizes and provided extra texture to the coating. Next time, I would consider adding grated parmesan to the breadcrumb mixture. I cooked the 1/2 inch sliced eggplant for 10-min a side at 450 and was thoroughly pleased with the crispy texture. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

Pierogi Dough
This recipe rocked! I was skeptical about the ingredients (oil) but the dough turned out soft and tender. I used the roller attachment for the Kitchen Aid Mixer (at settings 1 and/or 2) and had all of the dough rolled out perfectly in less than five minutes. My Polish great Aunties would have been proud! This definately will be in my recipe box and passed around to family and friends.
