Greetings Infomaniacs,

I missed Pierogi Fest this year, which is a shame since I love pierogi. They're like doughy little pockets of love. But what I did not miss was fighting my way through the 250,000 people who attended the fest this year.

Maybe I'll have my own pierogi fest. Does anybody have any really good pierogi recipes? I like onions and ground pork.

Enjoy!
