Pineapple Juice and Brown Sugar Glazed Ham

November 22nd, 2014 in Main Dish Recipes, 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.

Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Mushrooms

November 8th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Fall is a perfect time to cook some squash. Spaghetti squash.

This recipe features spaghetti squash stewed with chicken and mushrooms in sour cream sauce. Prepared like this, this dish doesn’t require a side.

Stewed spaghetti squash will work great for dunner or lunch. Leftovers can be easily reheated in microwave.

Pineapple Stuffed Pork Pockets

October 10th, 2014 in Main Dish Recipes, Pork by Julia Volhina

Pork tastes great with pineapple. These pork pockets rubbed with mix of spices and stuffed with pineapple chunks are perfect fit for romantic or celebration dinner.

Other cuts of pork can be cooked like this, but tenderloin works the best due to shape and tenderness.

I used fresh pineapples, but canned ones may work good too.

Roasted Vegetables and Mushrooms with Parmesan Sauce

September 13th, 2014 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Friend of mine introduced this dish to me few weeks ago and since then I cooked it pretty much every week.

It is pretty easy to do, and it provides a variety of vegetables to the table as it cooks zucchini, asparagus spears and mushrooms in the same time. The batch I usually get will feed about 6 people as a side dish with no leftovers (and I don’t think I ever had any of these left over actually).

It is very important to use portobello mushrooms in this recipe, as they have distinct aroma and taste which gets transferred to vegetables as well.

Fish Pie

July 26th, 2014 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is not hard recipe to do, but pretty nice one. My mom used to cook it all the time when we were kids: it can be served right away while it is still warm, or later warmed up or cold.

You can use any fish for this recipe (excluding the one with tons of bones), but red and fatty kind will work the best here. I used salmon.

Recipe for portion of unsweetened yeast dough I used can be found here.

Bay leaves here are optional, I like to use them, but they need to be removed before eating, so if you don’t want to do that, just skip them altogether.

Shrimps in Sour Cream Sauce

July 19th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Fast recipe to fix shrimps: simmer them for few minutes in sour cream and butter sauce.

I used raw cleaned shrimps for the recipe. But boiled ones will work as well, just reduce cooking time and temperature (no need for boiling).

Shrimps prepared this way can be a dish on its own, an appetizer or a snack, or it can be served over a bed of rice or pasta.

Chicken and Buckwheat Casserole

July 5th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I know that buckwheat isn’t something people in this part of the world eat. But I like it, and it is very nutritious to say the least.

I also was so pleased to find roasted version of it in stock of local Whole Foods (which I either didn’t pay attention to before, or they kind of decided to be adventures and try it), so I decided to publish an interesting recipe using buckwheat this week.

Cooking buckwheat in the same pan with chicken, onions, garlics and sour cream gives it nice taste (and makes one pot less to clean, yay!). You can serve casserole as soon as it is ready, storing it leftovers in fridge and then reheating them makes a nice lunch too.

I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, but any boneless chicken meat will work just fine.
