Remember the old television show Green Acres? Arguably the biggest star on the show was Arnold the pig. He could write his name, change channels on television, play piano and even predict the weather. Despite all of those talents, if he came to the Caribbean he might still find himself facing the butcher. We love pig – ham, chops, ribs, bacon, sausages. From snout to trotter we eat it all.

This week week I also made Pirojki/Pirogi. I first had a Pirogi while on a trip to the mid-west of the USA a few years ago. I have a very good friend that loves these so when I saw Farida of Azerbaijani Cookbook post the recipe complete with a step by step demo, I quickly bookmarked the page and set about making Pirogi. It tasted just as I remembered the first time I had one and what I like about Farida's version is that they were baked instead of fried. You've got to try making these, it's really easy and absolutely delicious. Click here for the recipe and to see how to make them.
Over at Forgive Me My Nonsense... this week, say goodbye to Randy Pausch.
