Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

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.

Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Mushrooms

Fall is a perfect time to cook some squash. Spaghetti squash.

This recipe features spaghetti squash stewed with chicken and mushrooms in sour cream sauce. Prepared like this, this dish doesn’t require a side.

Stewed spaghetti squash will work great for dunner or lunch. Leftovers can be easily reheated in microwave.

Shrimps in Sour Cream Sauce

Fast recipe to fix shrimps: simmer them for few minutes in sour cream and butter sauce.

I used raw cleaned shrimps for the recipe. But boiled ones will work as well, just reduce cooking time and temperature (no need for boiling).

Shrimps prepared this way can be a dish on its own, an appetizer or a snack, or it can be served over a bed of rice or pasta.

Chicken and Buckwheat Casserole

I know that buckwheat isn’t something people in this part of the world eat. But I like it, and it is very nutritious to say the least.

I also was so pleased to find roasted version of it in stock of local Whole Foods (which I either didn’t pay attention to before, or they kind of decided to be adventures and try it), so I decided to publish an interesting recipe using buckwheat this week.

Cooking buckwheat in the same pan with chicken, onions, garlics and sour cream gives it nice taste (and makes one pot less to clean, yay!). You can serve casserole as soon as it is ready, storing it leftovers in fridge and then reheating them makes a nice lunch too.

I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, but any boneless chicken meat will work just fine.

Eggplant Roast with Vegetables

This is nice looking dish which can be served as either a main entree, a side dish, or an appetizer.

It contains no meat, just eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese.

Eggplant roasted this way looks festive (and will for sure fit nicely on a holiday table), and it is also pretty easy to do.

One medium size eggplant will produce 2-3 servings.

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

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.
