Baked Chicken Thighs in Mustard Soy Sauce

May 7th, 2016 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Chicken thighs baked in mustard and soy sauce is one of these recipes to use when you need to cook something delicious while spending minimum effort on it.

All you need to do is to whip a sauce together, cover chicken with it and stick it into the oven – cooking doesn’t get any easier than this.

Chicken thighs are juicy and easy to cook without much risk of over drying the meat, so this recipe produces very tender and juicy chicken meat with a hint of spices from curry and mustard.

Baked Cod in Mustard and Lemon Marinade

March 26th, 2016 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Cod fish may taste a bit plain and somewhat boring, but not if prepared with mustard and lemon marinade like in this recipe.

Onions cooked along with fish in the same marinate taste just great (I think I might like onions the same as fish if not more). So don’t be shy on amount of onions to use.

Marinating requires at least an hour, but can be extended to few, as long as you keep the fish is in the fridge. And will allow to do all preparations in advance in needed and then cook fish right before the serving.

Yogurt, Mustard and Lemon Juice Salad Dressing

March 12th, 2016 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina

Yogurt, mustard and lemon juice salad dressing tastes great especially in meat based salads, but is also good with tomatoes, good on sandwiches and as dipping sauce.

It can be used as lighter substitute for mayo: if you compare 900 calories for 5oz of mayo to about 140 calories of similar amount of this dressing.

Now, taste of this dressing will vary based on what kind of mustard you use, as well as based on proportion of mustard and lemon juice. Just experiment with different types and proportions to your liking.

I like using chobani yogurt for this one: there is enough space in the container to fit mustard and juice and mix, so no need to use extra bowl for mixing.

Hot Camomile Tea with Rum

January 3rd, 2015 in Beverages, With Alcohol by Julia Volhina

If you are looking for comfort beverage to get warm during cold winter, try spiced hot camomile tea with rum.

Cinnamon and cloves spice the tea up, lemon juice flavors it and rum adds a bit of twist to the taste just enough to help with warming process, serve it hot.

I usually drink my tea unsweetened, but if you need some sweetness use honey (preferably) or sugar to taste.

Apple, Sorrel and Lettuce Salad

December 6th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

It seems to me that sorrel isn’t something very popular in cooking in this part of the world.

But just in case if you were looking for some recipe using it, here is one: fresh raw salad with sorrel, apple and romaine lettuce dressed with lemon juice and honey.

If dressing seems too sour for you, replace some juice with water and increase amount of honey, that should do the trick.

Shrimps, Mushroom and Rice Salad

June 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.

Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad Recipe

January 4th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This unusual combination of ingredients yields pretty interesting salad. And it tastes best then prepared right before serving.

Original recipe calls for 10 quail eggs, but I find them somehow hard to find here, so I used 2 chicken eggs as replacement.

Pineapples themselves are optional ingredient, you can skip on them if you wish so, but with them salad tastes more interesting.
