As promised, here are some photos of tonight's dumpling session in my kitchen!
- Anna
- and me
- and two glasses of red wine ^^
- and 142 dumplings!

A glass of wine, who helped us making dumplings ^^, a bag of flour, one egg, cottage cheese for the stuffing (potatoes are already boiled and being mashed), at the front - pasta machine used to flatten the dough (genius!!!).

Anna is preparing the dough (1 kg of flour, 1 egg, 1 glass of very very hot water).

Dumplings waiting for the hot bath in the pot of boiling water.

Anna is resting after 2,5 hours of work (I finally bought some nice covers to hide my ugly sofa, yikes! ^^)

And finally, two containers of dumplings, the upper one full of Russian ones (potatoes + cottage cheese), the bottom one full of meat and veg dumplings.

And then came Robert and our friend Piotr, and ate half of the meat ones. ^^
I've been making dumplings for the first time in my life (I know, I'm amazed myself that I haven't tried it before, it's so much fun! ^^), and I'm already planning different stuffings, like spinach and blue cheese, sweet cottage cheese, strawberries, ect, ect...

Sweet dreams, everybody! *^v^*


  1. Oh, yum! Can I come over? :D

  2. mmmmmmm - they look so tasty! 142 sounds like a lot of dumplings.

  3. Guys, you are so invited! This time and every next time I'll be making dumplings, because I fell in love with them, and there is so many stuffings you can put inside them, yikes! *^v^*

  4. makes me miss my gramma's cheese & potato pierogi... those were the best.
