I have a “bad blogger” moment to admit to: Before Christmas time I made roughly 150+ perogies and ate them all… yes all of them… k well not all of them because I did share a few dozen with friends and family… but the large majority….. without taking a single picture of them or blogging them. Now full of blogger shame, this past weekend I decided to whip up another batch. However, I must be clinically insane because I’ve made over 300 perogies with this ginormous batch. So everyone can expect one thing: more perogy recipes will be appearing on the blog. Who knows – maybe I will be the Perogy Princess while Bob is the Grilled Cheese King. Let’s get to this ethnic hybrid of perogies! Continue reading

It’s time for another portobello recipe! This one is real easy and a great healthy platform for all those wonderful things you put on a loaded baked potato (which may not be so healthy!). I’m pretty sure you could put sour cream, bacon, chives and cheese on anything and it would taste awesome, so this was a no-brainer!

Behold my latest creation…THE BAKED POTATO GRILLED CHEESE! After the glory that was the Brocolli & Cheddar Soup Grilled Cheese, I began racking my brain for what other wonderful things I could deconstruct into grilled cheese format. Soon enough I had envisioned this piece of grilled cheese heaven! I mean how can you go wrong with fried potatoes, bacon, cheese, sour cream and chives all made into a melty grilled cheese? Well you can’t!
So here is how I went about making it.

At work we have an Iron Chef Challenge once a month where a group of people cook off and have their dishes judged by a panel of fellow employees. This month’s secret ingredient is…. PESTO! Right away I knew I didn’t want to do something traditional with pesto, so I ventured off to what I know best: Dessert. I made a Basil Chocolate Cake with a Parmesan Sour Cream Cheese Icing and topped it off with some pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese. This is also one of the best things I’ve ever eaten – SERIOUS FOODGASM. Continue reading

This is the first recipe in my chicken wing extravaganza! I got the recipe from Korean American Mommy and made very minor adjustments.
As usual, what I cook is determined by what is in my fridge (which my beloved parents faithfully restock on a regular basis!). So when I saw six pork chops I knew what my supper was going to be, so off I went to the interwebs in search of a recipe which I could pull off with what ingredients were on hand. After a quick search on Tastespotting I found a recipe which I had all the ingredients for at The Bitten Word. Now I needed to make some minor adjustment to their recipe, so here is the adjusted version:
