My husband and I have a thing for tacos. We could eat them a couple of times a week. One of our favorite combinations is chorizo with potato. This is where the idea of a chorizo and pierogy skillet came about. This meal comes together super quick and is amazing for a crowd. It […]

They are used as a binder in recipes such as meatloaf, meatballs, or crab cakes. Breadcrumbs could be considered a pantry staple in may homes. […]
