Things I never thought I'd like

You need to find a good Ukranian for perfect pierogies. They know how to make them right. Best I've had were from Canadian Ukrainians. A few North Dakotans and Minnesotans also do a good job.

While I do like Brussels sprouts in general, my wife has found a recipe that makes them truly delectable. I'm not 100% sure just what it involves, but first she steams them in a single layer in a frying pan with maybe a half cup of water. When they are tender she pours off any remaining water, then spritzes them with Tuscan Herb flavored olive oil, and finishes by tossing with maple balsamic vinegar from the same vendor in the link.

They are so good this way that I can make an entire meal out of them, rather than just a side dish.

I don't know about that I've had some amazing pierogies in Polish restaurants in the Hamtramck area of Detroit.

K'girl, I don't think you're going to find a great example of pierogies in a ballpark

My wife hates Brussels sprouts. But I love to use them in vegetable soup I make. They add such a pleasant flavor. So what I do I just fish them out, grind them into a mush, and add back into soup. I think she knows they are there but because she can't see them she's ok with that. She loves that soup.

I see that like us, many scallop lovers here. Have you ever had/made Coquilles St. Jacques with bay scallops?
