Fresh Cheese Pancakes

Fresh Cheese Pancakes

Fresh White Cheese Pancakes are good choice for the family breakfast or snack. Fresh cheese is a source of the calcium, therefore this is very good food for kids whose growing body needs a lot of calcium.

Cheese pancakes are very fast and very easy to do. The only hassle with this recipe can be to find good quark-kind fresh cheese. So try Russian, Ukrainian or Polish shop if you can’t locate it local supermarket, or make it yourself.

Meat with Prunes

Meat with Prunes

For meat with prunes you can use either pork or beef. I think, pork tastes even better prepared this way, especially if prunes you have are not too sweet, so I advise you to go with pork.

However if you don’t like pork for some reasons or if you don’t have it just like I did when I were writing this article, you can use beef. I must say it tastes also delicious!

Crepes (Thin Pancakes)

Crepes (Thin Pancakes)

Crêpes (crepes, thin pancakes, blintz, bliny, mlynchyky) can be served with various dips and plain fillings (fresh fruits, sour cream, honey, jam, sugar, etc) or be staffed with more complex fillings like mushroom & cheese sauce, meat and rice, eggs and green onions stuffing, etc.

But in any case you will need to prepare crêpes first and that requires agility and some kind of training. Read how I prepare them in the step-by-step guide.

Cotopulo Gyros (Greek Chicken with Spices)

Gyros is Greek meat dish (right, it can be not only chicken gyros, but also beef, pork or lamb).

To make it: marinate sliced meat, place it on a tall vertical spit, which turns in front of a source of heat and cut meat out when is ready…

Well I don’t have such vertical spit at home, so I prepare gyros in a different way.

And I like the gyros made of chicken more, so it is why that post about “Cotopulo Gyros” after all. And yes, it is spicy!

Stuffed Bell Peppers

My better half doesn’t like fresh bell peppers, so I do stuff them with ground beef and rice and stew for a bit and here we go, it is his favorite meat dish.

Stuffed Bell Peppers are easy and fast to do. They are being served without side dish and are tasty!
