Another food favorite. I live in a part of the city that is nicknamed Ukrainian Village. Just about every 4 blocks you can get pierogis. So many different ones. What I like best that I learned from this recipe is that I can fill them with just about any combination that I want. Tasting different ones from all over let me get a handle on what I like to stuff them with. So be creative. They don't just have to be stuffed with potato and cheese.
