Meat Stuffed Eggplants

October 24th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Fun recipe to play with: eggplants stuffed with ground beef and vegetables. Nice combination of meat and veggies. I love eggplants!

For me it is always a bit tricky to hollow eggplants out, it is important to take most of pulp off to make sure they cook through, but it is also important to to not damage eggplant skin. It takes a bit of time and practice.

You can take bigger eggplants and slice them in half lengthwise, or take smaller ones and slice top part off like I did for this recipe.

Baked Chicken Patties in Cheese Sauce

September 26th, 2015 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Interesting and I would say unusual recipe: chopped chicken meat patties baked in garlicky cream cheese sauce. Great choice for romantic or family dinner.

I used chicken thighs meat for this recipe, it seem juicier and tasty to me, but breast meat will work as well. As for cheese, it is italian cheese blend, but if you like something else – it would probably work too.

If meat mince consistency is watery, forming patties may get tricky, just use two spoon to ladle and shape them, otherwise use hands.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

September 12th, 2015 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

I think this recipe is one of these I can call American. I don’t know if it was invented here, but it is sure popular here: it is quick to make and kids love it.

I used cheddar and swiss cheese for my sandwiches, but any other good melting cheese will work as well. As well as other breads. Just experiment with what you like.

Serve grilled cheese sandwich with a side or without.

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.

Roasted Vegetables and Mushrooms with Parmesan Sauce

September 13th, 2014 in Main Dishes, 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.

Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style Carrots

August 16th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

Yet another one chicken salad to be added to my list of recipes: tender chicken meat, boiled eggs, tasty cucumbers and spicy carrots prepare in korean style.

This salad will work great as a side or appetizer, or as a lunch meal itself, especially if you need something to take with you. It can be served plain, in a sandwich or in a wrap.

Salad can be dressed with a mix of mayo and sour cream instead of the mayo alone, if you are looking for healthier option.

Mushroom and Carrots Stuffed Chicken Casserole

May 31st, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

This is somewhat unusual dish to cook: mushroom and carrot stuffing baked inside of chicken meat “crust”.

But I assure you, it is totally worth cooking, for romantic dinner for example. Leftovers can be easily warmed up in microwave.

By the way, juices and removing casserole from the dish are a bit easier to handle if you use springform, but casserole dish would work too.
