Cool Ranch Baked Tortilla Salad Bowls

There are very few days where I don’t eat a salad of one sort or another.

Potato and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Dumplings {Vareniki}

I have a long and abiding love for pierogies. (See here for proof.) I have always eaten the frozen variety due to a woeful lack of old Polish grandmothers in my family. Strangely, it never occurred to me to make my own.  I’m aware that ‘making your own’ is kind of my thing. …and then [Read On]
