Fried PotatoesMay 24th, 2009 in Sides by Julia Volhina
I think fried potatoes is one of the first dishes I learned how to do myself when I was a kid, well besides sandwiches of course. So believe me it is easy to do.
Fried potato is great side for any kind of fried main dishes: meat, poultry, fish or even vegetables. And unlike the french-fries (which is kind of similar food) fried potato use much smaller amount of salt and oil, so I believe it is a bit more healthy.
Crepes (Thin Pancakes)May 16th, 2009 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
Crêpes (crepes, thin pancakes, blintz, bliny, mlynchyky) can be served with various dips and plain fillings (fresh fruits, sour cream, honey, jam, sugar, etc) or be staffed with more complex fillings like mushroom & cheese sauce, meat and rice, eggs and green onions stuffing, etc.
But in any case you will need to prepare crêpes first and that requires agility and some kind of training. Read how I prepare them in the step-by-step guide.

Cotopulo Gyros (Greek Chicken with Spices)April 26th, 2009 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Gyros is Greek meat dish (right, it can be not only chicken gyros, but also beef, pork or lamb).
To make it: marinate sliced meat, place it on a tall vertical spit, which turns in front of a source of heat and cut meat out when is ready…
Well I don’t have such vertical spit at home, so I prepare gyros in a different way.
And I like the gyros made of chicken more, so it is why that post about “Cotopulo Gyros” after all. And yes, it is spicy!
