My sour cream recipes



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.

Scrambled Eggs with Ham and Tomatoes

August 10th, 2013 in Eggs, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I just realized that my website doesn’t have any scrambled egg recipes published by now. So here is an attempt to fix this issue.

Obviously, this recipe is good for breakfast or brunch, or just for any time when you need to fix something to eat fast. Amount of ingredients is good for 2 portions.

You can use ham, just like I did, or canadian bacon, or hot dogs, or another kind of sausage you like. Taste will be slightly different.

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.

Ramps Spring Salad with Eggs and Cucumbers

May 18th, 2013 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

This salad filled with vitamins. But it is highly seasonal, unless you have fresh ramps at your disposal anytime of a year.

I saw them by in Whole Foods other day, and couldn’t pass by, had to take an opportunity to make this salad.

Ramps have intense garlicky taste, if you want to make it less so, add a bit more sour cream to the dressing.

Turkey Meatloaf

April 13th, 2013 in Main Dish Recipes, Turkey by Julia Volhina

This is another experiment with turkey meat, which I am not very familiar with. And I must say I like how it turned out.

I used ground turkey breast meat, but thighs would do good as well, or a combination of these.

This recipe is good choice for lunch or dinner, leftovers can be stored in fridge and warmed up before serving.

Blue Cheese Dip

March 30th, 2013 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina

This dip is one of my US discoveries, along with celery stalks which I never tried before I came here.

These two I can eat together endlessly, as an appetizer, a side or just a snack. It just made a lot of sense to learn to mix the dip from scratch myself.

Blue cheese dip goes great with fresh vegetables (e.g. celery, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower), spicy chicken wings or as a fresh salad dressing (I would suggest to put a bit more kefir to the mix in this case).

Lettuce, Tomato and Cucumber Salad

March 2nd, 2013 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

In anticipation of the spring in early March, here goes fresh tomato, cucumber and lettuce salad recipe.

These fresh vegetables taste so good in the Spring.

Prepare the salad soon before serving, cut fresh vegetables don’t like to wait.

If you want to make dressing lighter, use light mayo and low-fat yogurt instead of sour cream.
