Salad with Chicken and Fresh Vegetables

March 8th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

Spring is right around the corner. And even though nowadays you can buy fresh vegetables all year around, in spring they taste somehow special. Maybe this is a way how body let’s you know it needs to be replenished with vitamins.

This is why I am publishing this recipe for salad made of fresh bell peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes with boiled white chicken meat and a bit of cheese.

By the way, mayo in the dressing can be mixed with sour cream for skinnier version.

Summer Squash Omelette

February 15th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dish Recipes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

Perfect recipe for breakfast or brunch, especially on a weekend.

Summer squashes or zucchinis or a combination of these will work for this recipe. One or two, depending on their size and size of skillet you use. You will need just enough to form a single layer.

I used italian blend of cheeses, it worked perfectly. Other cheese or combination of cheese to your liking will work as well.

Crabsticks, Beans, Tomato, Bell Pepper and Cheese Salad

January 11th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

One more salad for holiday table: lighter salad with crab sticks, red beans, tomatoes, bell pepper and cheese. It is pretty fast to make because doesn’t require any prep work: nothing to boil or cook prior to assembling.

I used italian blend of shredded cheese, but any hard cheese you like will work. If you have whole piece of cheese, you can dice it instead of shredding.

Adjust amount of garlic to your liking, if whole clove seems a bit too much use only half of it.

Chicken and Mushroom Salad

December 21st, 2013 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

It is a holiday season. In slavic world rare holiday table will go by without tons of salads, actually none will.

This is why I will try to focus on salad recipes these couple of week (as much as I can, during with my vacation to Ukraine).

This salad recipe calls for just few ingredients: chicken, mushrooms, eggs and mayo are main ingredients. And there is no onions or garlic, which makes this salad a good choice for lunch on a go.

Ricotta Cheese Stuffed Pasta

November 30th, 2013 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina

This is my first take on stuffed jumbo pasta shells, but I will must say it will not not be last: there are so many stuffings these may work nicely with.

In this recipe pasta is stuffed with five cheeses (ricotta, provolone, mozzarella and romano), fresh parsley and egg mix.

For sauce I tried something new too: that is canned crushed tomatoes, usually I avoid using canned vegetables, but these worked well for sauce and saved me quite some time too.

Chicken Cutlets with Mushroom and Cheese

August 3rd, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

One of visitors of forum I am often read shared this recipe, and I had to try it: it seems both easy to do and very unusual.

And turned out great: chicken meat pieces, mixed with mushroom pieces and cheese, tasty, juicy, melty and just great!

I tried two kinds of side dish with chicken and mushroom cutlets: boiled potatoes and boiled buckwheat, and I liked it. I think fresh veggies salad will be a good addition.

Quick Crescent Rolls with Meat and Cheese

July 20th, 2013 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina

I was short on time this couple of weeks having visitors at home and at work. So I didn’t have much time to prepare a recipe in time for today.

It is a bit unusual of me to use “ready-to-use” ingredients in my food, but they save time if you need it to attend to other things.

Crescent dough sold in store makes decent rolls, which are good when you need to cook something to bite fast. So here is one of recipes for these.

I used ham as meat for this recipe, because that is what I had in my fridge. But you can be creative and use cooked bacon, or canadian bacon, or hot dogs, or another sausage, or a combination of these to your taste.
