Versatile Veggie Curry
I have been making a variation of this curry for years now. It’s a recipe I turn to when I don’t know what to make, but have some vegetables on hand and I want something warming and comforting. The vegetables in this recipe are more of a guideline and suggestion, honestly, whatever you have leftover in your fridge should work!
French Girl Tuna Dip

Babacia's Pierogi - A Polish Family Recipe
I will never forget the amazing pierogi that my babcia used to make. She made all kinds of pierogi - Ruskie (cottage cheese & potato), spinach and cheese, mushroom and cabbage, minced pork... even blueberry pierogi! They are a labour of love but it's all worth it in the end when you realize you've made enough to feed a small village.
