Perogy Rolls

I’m kind of obsessed with perogies. Pierogi, if you’re feeling particularly Ukrainian today.   If I had no conscience, I could eat them almost every day. Being that they’re made of cheesy, bacony mashed potatoes stuffed inside soft dough and covered in other equally delicious things, I try to restrain myself a little. Just a […]

Easy Homemade Hamburger Helper

I know Hamburger Helper isn’t that classy. But sometimes we just like things that are easy and taste good. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.

Smothered Shredded Pork

Pulled pork is one of those things I can eat all week and not complain about it. I think it must be the sauce, because we really like sauce. Pulled pork is usually covered in some thick, delicious, sweet and sour and smoky sauce that I just can’t get enough of. That being said, earlier […]

Saskatoon Perogies

What is the best meal you’ve ever eaten? Do you have an absolute favourite food? This is absolutely mine. And I’m sure most of you are wondering what is going on in my head right now. But let me assure you, I am not crazy. And I didn’t take anything with my coffee this morning […]
