Fear No Food: Homemade Sweet Potato Pierogi

Fear No Food: Homemade Sweet Potato Pierogi

Hello friends!

I apologize for not posting last Friday. It seems my intense love of autumn does not bring with it an immunity to colds and the like, and I fell sick with my first head cold of the season last Wednesday night.

It also doesn’t help that the weather in NJ ranged from 45 degrees Tuesday night to a whopping 84 degrees mid-Sunday. My immune system does not appreciate this madness.

I’m writing this post with just about the biggest box of tissues and cough drops at my side, but I refuse to let this ridiculous cold stop me from sharing this pierogi recipe with you.

  • 1 head garlic
