100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Dream Dishes: Big Ski’s Pierogi

Dumpling-style heaven


  • Chris Miller
Don’t know what a pierogi is? It looks like a dumpling, made with egg and flour dough. It’s traditionally filled with potatoes and cheese, poached in water, set to dry, then fried in a cast-iron skillet with butter and topped with sautéed onions and sour cream. A breakfast pierogi uses the same dough, but is filled with eggs and protein including sausage, bacon or ham.

A dish to dream about: What makes it a breakfast “dream dish” is the ooey-gooey egg, yolk spilling across the plate when you cut into it, and the bacon, sausage and ham like liquid food gold. Throw onions and sour cream on top and you’ve already made it to heaven. Going for lunch instead? Have a chef’s choice sample plate. You won’t know what you’re biting into, but it won’t matter. Each forkful is a culinary Fourth of July.

Price: You can get four breakfast pierogis for $8. For lunch, the sampler is six for $11.
