Holiday Chicken Soup

This Holiday Chicken Soup is a very special soup! It has an intense, rich flavor thanks to a chicken and beef (or veal) stock that simmers for eight (yes eight!) hours on the stove – resulting in one of the best soups you’ll ever eat! I’m going to ask this of you right upfront here: […]

Today’s recipe for Pierogi is one that is near and dear to my heart! I grew up in a family that was Polish on both sides, and today’s recipe is adapted from the one that my Babci (that means ‘grandmother’ in Polish) on my mother’s side of the family shared with our family. This 100+ […]
