Cucumber and Dill SaladMay 23rd, 2015 in Salads, Sides by Julia Volhina
This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.
Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.
I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.
Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour CreamFebruary 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.
Shrimps, Mushroom and Rice SaladJune 21st, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This isn’t one of the recipes I usually cook, but it kind of puzzled me when I saw a recipe, so I had to try it.
It turned out pretty nice, somewhat unusual taste but quite interesting.
I used shrimps, presented in last week recipe this recipe, but I think store purchased pre-cooked shrimps will work well for it as well.
Tortilla Rolls with Crab Sticks and CheeseMay 24th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
I had some tortillas left from the pack I used on recipe earlier this month. So I decided to post another recipe for tortilla rolls, this time with crab stick, cheese, garlic and greens stuffing.
The same as the first one, these rolls will work perfectly as a snack or an appetizer, and they go great together with beer.
So if you are looking for some unusual snack recipe, here it is.
Tortilla Rolls with Fresh Cheese and GarlicMay 3rd, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
Flour tortilla rolls with fresh cheese, dill and garlic will pair perfectly with beer as a snack. Or an appetizer, or both.
You can prepare them in advance and slice right before serving, just allow them to sit in fridge for at least 30 mins before serving, so tortillas can soak moisture a bit.
At home we made these with lavash bread, but it is a bit hard to find here, so I used ready to go flour tortillas and it worked good too.
As for the cheese you can use any fresh cheese which can be easily crumbled to your taste: fresh white cheese (quark), feta or queso fresco.
Shrimp and Asparagus SaladSeptember 7th, 2013 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Shrimps and asparagus with dill and cream is quite unusual combination for me, but I must say it tastes delicious. I ate something similar when we lived in Austria and wanted to reproduce the recipe ever since.
It tastes especially good if asparagus is young and you manage to not overcook it to keep crunchy texture. Lemon juice helps to brings the best taste out of asparagus.
By the way, if you use frozen shrimps, thaw completely them before adding to salad.
Chicken Kiev CutletsAugust 31st, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is one of recipes of ukrainian cuisine, after all it is named after capital of Ukraine – Kiev / Kyiv, but it is pretty popular through rest of former USSR countries.
Chicken Kiev is no ordinary recipe, but definitely one worth time spent: tender chicken meat folded around herb butter, covered in breadcrumbs and egg batter and cooked.
The trick is to fold meat and coat cutlets in batter in a way that herb butter doesn’t leak through holes while deep frying.
