Does anyone know of how to make (or the ingredients of the pre-made stuff) that blue vein cheese sauce that you have with buffalo wings? I know they sell it in the supermarkets in the US - maybe someone has a jar of it at home?

here's one:
1 cup (about 4 ounces) crumbled bleu cheese
2 cups mayonnaise
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1 clove garlic, minced

Beat all ingredients together until fluffy. Chill.

Merged: Question on cookbooks or good recipe sites. And Cheese Sauce....

My grandfather is from Yugoslavia and my grandmother is Czechoslovakian. But I am finding a hard time finding recipes from there. All I know is mostly for holidays, as my grandparents and parents only cooked traditional on those days. Mainly pirohy(pierogies), Kolachi (pastries), Paska (bread), cabbage rolls, and some custard they always called cideets, but seems the only names I could find for it online is hrudka, or syrek. As Poland is a close neighbor to the Czech Republic I was wondering if anyone here could suggest a book that would include dishes from that area, that are more day to dayish.

Also I noticed a lot of pierogi dishes about the internet and in these forums and was wondering why I had not noticed anyone serving them with cheese sauce. Is that not a traditional topping for them? My grandfather used to make it for potato pierogies all the time. It was just cheese with browned onions, milk and small pieces of cauliflower. No one else use this?

Sort of ran on there but anyway.
Thanks for your time.

Pierogi may be served with cream, onion, or bacon. I don't think cheese sauce is popular with pierogies.

Have a look at "Polish Cookery" by Marja Ochorowicz-Monatowa - it's an English language version of a classic Polish cookbook from the 1800's (the Polish equivalent to Mrs Beeton).

I know of 2 good cookbooks.
1) Treasured Polish Recipes for Americans. Published by Polanie Club (Marie Sokolowski and Irene Jasinski, Co-Chairmen). Polanie Publishing Company (Minneapolis Mn, 55413). Original copyright 1948. My copy is a reprint from 1993.

2) Robert Strybel - Polish Heritage Cookery (from - this has everything you can think of in it!
Oddly enough, my Dad grew up in Hamtramck Mi, and he is pretty sure that his dad (my grandpa) was friends with the Robert Strybel's dad - they were fishing buddies, apparently.

Anyway, here is the bibliographic info:
Hardcover: 915 pages
Publisher: Hippocrene; Illustrate edition (Jun 1 1997)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0781805589
ISBN-13: 978-0781805582
Product Dimensions: 23.9 x 19.6 x 5.8 cm
Shipping Weight: 1.7 Kg Illustrated (Hardcover)

I guess I just skimmed the original question. I don't know if these books include Czech recipes or not (I know kolaczy are included in the first book), but odds are if any Polish cookbook is going to do so, the one by Strybel would. It's huge!!! 915 pages of recipes.
