Pierogi Pro

My dinner last Sunday night was a traditional Polish feast; potato and cabbage pierogis with sour cream, Polish sausage, and sauerkraut. I'd never eaten Polish food before meeting my Polish sweetie - but ever since I've come to love the comfort food of his homeland.

Usually the batches of pierogis we eat are homemade by his grandparents and mailed express from Michigan. We then immediately freeze said pierogis + Polish treats to save for a rainy day when comfort food is a must. I love this culinary tradition and opportunity to celebrate his rich heritage, but my qualm is, I don't know how to make these myself...

So imagine my surprise when I opened my Martha Stewart Living this month and what did I see? Martha's favorite food is pierogis? And she included a how-to recipe for both sweet and savory pierogis? My lucky day - check out this issue, Martha shows how to make savory cabbage pierogis and sweet blueberry pierogis, apparently her fave!

YUM! I always love getting them down at Pike Place Market. Although, I think the ones at the market are Russian Peroshkys, but very similar. So delicious!

I too loved it when I opened the April issue of Living and found these wonderful recipes from Martha! I knew she was a big fan, but I didn't know she would claim these little beauties as her favorite. I've never made homemade - only store bought - so I am excited to try my hand at these. :)

I looove Pierogi. (I'm Polish...) I swear my mum makes the best! At Christmas we have cabbage and mushroom ones served in a clear Borscht. But the blueberry ones are great too. Yum – I'm starving now... xx

Growing up we had pierogi delivered by the Schwan man... do you remember the white big truck that drove around and you could buy all sorts of frozen goodness out of there? I'm betting that my (grown-up) taste buds will like Martha's homemade ones better.

PS - thinking of the Schwan man now makes me want an orange push pop.
