Potato Pierogi by Michael Symon from The Chew – Find it and more

Contributed by : Michael Symon
You have to try Michael’s pierogi – they’re a Cleveland favorite!

Calories per Serving: 500
Cost per Serving: $1.30
Total Cost: $7.81

Ingredients

Pierogi Dough:
1 Egg
3/4 cup Sour Cream
8 tablespoon Unsalted Butter (softened)
1 tablespoon Fresh Chives (chopped)
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 cups All-Purpose Flour (plus more for rolling dough)
For Filling and Serving:
2 cups Mashed Potatoes
2 Medium Yellow Onions (sliced thinly and evenly)
Salt
Sour Cream (to serve)
1/2 cup Farmer’s Cheese
3 tablespoon Butter

Directions

Step 1: Make the Dough

ingredients 1 Egg
3/4 cup Sour Cream
8 tablespoon Unsalted Butter (softened)
1 tablespoon Fresh Chives (chopped)
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 cups All-Purpose Flour (plus more for rolling dough)
instructions Make the Pierogi Dough: To make the dough, work the egg, sour cream, butter (8 tablespoons), chives, and salt together by hand to form a dough. Don’t worry if the mixture is not uniform and, as with pie dough, don’t overwork it. Add flour and mix thoroughly with your hands until a dough forms. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Step 2:

instructions:
Split the dough in half, reserve the remaining dough.

Step 3:

ingredients:
2 cups Mashed Potatoes
1/2 cup Farmer’s Cheese

instructions:
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface to a 1/8-inch thickness and cut it into 3-inch rounds. Add all of the cheese to the mashed potatoes to make the filling. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of filling onto each round, being careful not to overstuff. Fold the dough over into half-moons and press the edges with a fork to seal them.

Step 4

ingredients:
3 tablespoon Butter
2 Medium Yellow Onions (sliced thinly and evenly)

instructions:
To caramelize the onions, heat 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions, arrange into an even layer, and season with salt. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking, until caramelized, about 15 minutes.

Step 5

ingredients:
Salt

instructions:
Bring a large salted pot of water to a boil. Add the pierogi and cook until they float, then cook for 4 minutes once they have begun to float. Drain well in a colander, reserving a cup of the cooking water.

Step 6:

ingredients:
Sour Cream (to serve)

instructions:
Add the cooked pierogi to the pan with the caramelized onions, add a splash of the cooking water. To serve, top with sour cream.

What do the Buzzwords Mean in Help Wanted Ads – Find it and more

Here is a summary of popular ‘Buzzwords’ found in Job Ads and what they mean.

By Katherine Reynolds Lewis, the Author of the original article.
Click on the Link to Find it an more.

Detail-oriented: This phrase hints that your every move will be scrutinized and second-guessed.

Team player: This is a code phrase for someone who will allow the employer to do whatever they want to you.

Fast-paced work environment: This means that the employer wants high productivity at all costs and you’ll be fielding a steady flow of emergencies.

Multitask: Neuroscience tells us it’s actually impossible for the human brain to multitask successfully. What they’re trying to say is, ‘We may switch up your job description without telling you and we want you to be okay with it.’

Self-starter: It’s saying, ‘When we don’t give you any sense of direction, we want you to pull it out of thin air.’

Results-oriented or self-motivated: What this really means is that they want someone with incredible drive… because you probably will have to work to make commission.

Early-stage or venture-backed: There aren’t a lot of resources; you may not get paid a lot; and we hope you’re going to work for that Holy Grail of going public or some successful exit.

Experience in an entrepreneurial setting: Any job ad that describes an “entrepreneurial position” will demand a willingness to do whatever task needs to be done from the person who takes the gig.

Creativity for “out of the box” solutions: That’s jargon for: we don’t have it figured out yet.
