Scalloped Potatoes with Parmesan

April 25th, 2015 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Creamy potato and parmesan cheese casserole which can be served as a side or a main dish.

It is pretty easy to do, and can be a great choice if you need to bring something with you to a cookout.

Left overs can be easily stored in fridge and re-heated in microwave.

Simple Fried Shrimps

April 11th, 2015 in Appetizers & Snacks, Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Simple recipe to fry shrimps. I cooked shrimps in shell, but cleaned ones will work for this recipe as well.

Make sure you don’t overcook shrimps (turn them over as soon as meat becomes white), or meat will turn hard and shrimps will be hard to clean.

You can also use garlic oil instead of cooking garlic with oil, if you have it on hand.

Beef Liver with Sour Cream

March 28th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Let’s bring liver back to the table: for as nutritious as it is, it doesn’t get nearly enough of the spotlight.

This easy recipe will help you to add all the goodness beef liver has into your diet.

I noticed that in US it is easier to find pre-sliced and cleaned liver, but in case you buy a whole piece, you will need to clean it, remove hard vessel parts and slice it up before continuing with the recipe.

Liver tastes great with boiled buckwheat, this is my first choice for a side dish for any main course with liver.

Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

February 14th, 2015 in Main Dishes, Rabbit by Julia Volhina

Rabbit meat is considered to be lean and overall healthy meat option. We were cooking rabbits pretty often at home in Ukraine. But here in US I was never lucky enough to see one in store.

This seem had changed recently: both, Whole Foods and Giant Eagle Market District in area where we live, now started carrying young rabbits (I hope it isn’t some kind of trial).

So I couldn’t resist, bought one and decided to share this simple and yet pretty tasty recipe for rabbit stew with mushrooms and sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Meat Stew with Beans

January 31st, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

If you are looking for quick recipe with meat – try meat stew with beans.

It is pretty quick and is not too complicated to do: cooking time will depend on the meat cut you use, but in average it is between 30 and 45 mins.

I used beef (chuck roast cut) for this one, but pork will work for this recipe as well.

Cabbage Baked with Eggs

December 20th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I don’t know how to call this dish: it is not a cake or pie, but it certainly looks like one; it doesn’t seem to be a casserole, but you can bake it in a casserole pan, it does look similar to quiche, but is not exactly a quiche.

I guess at very least it is an omelette, omelette with cabbage. Yes, I know, an unusual combination, but still pretty tasty.

Cabbage omelette doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare, can be served for breakfast or lunch as a dish on it’s own, but it also can be paired with meats as a side dish.

Pineapple Juice and Brown Sugar Glazed Ham

November 22nd, 2014 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina

This is really recipe for the ham glaze: the ham is already fully cooked, and it will just need heating up and a bit of taste.

It is easy recipe for celebration table. If you want to feed more people take bigger piece of meat and increase amount of other ingredients, cooking time will need to be adjusted appropriately.

Left overs can be easily served for lunch, cold or reheated.
