Crabsticks, Beans, Tomato, Bell Pepper and Cheese SaladJanuary 11th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
One more salad for holiday table: lighter salad with crab sticks, red beans, tomatoes, bell pepper and cheese. It is pretty fast to make because doesn’t require any prep work: nothing to boil or cook prior to assembling.
I used italian blend of shredded cheese, but any hard cheese you like will work. If you have whole piece of cheese, you can dice it instead of shredding.
Adjust amount of garlic to your liking, if whole clove seems a bit too much use only half of it.
Bean, Cucumber and Bell Pepper SaladJuly 6th, 2013 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This is an easy salad with boiled beans, fresh bell pepper and cucumber which can be assembled in under a 15 mins if you are fast with chopping and dicing.
Any kind of beans will work for this recipe, you can also boil beans yourself instead of using canned ones, just let them cool down till room temperature before adding them to the salad.
Fresh green parsley can be substituted for cilantro if you don’t like cilantro or can find it for some reason. But I like taste of bean salad with cilantro the most.
Fried Rice with Chicken and VegetablesJune 15th, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is my first attempt on cooking fried rice, one of the website visitors asked for a recipe and I decided to try some out.
I liked the result, but it is hard for me to judge, since fried rice isn’t very slavic food which I am more used to (main trick is to not overcook rice). If you decided to try it too, please let me know how it turned out for you.
By the way, in this recipe amounts of ginger and soy sauce can be adjusted to your taste.
Beef Gyros with Vegetables and SpicesMay 11th, 2013 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Beef sirloin steak meat marinated in gyros spices and vegetables turns out tender (if meat is of good quality) and somewhat spicy.
Meat needs to marinate for couple of hours, overnight is good, but it can go longer. I usually prepare meat and sear portion of it right before serving, and I store remaining marinated meat in fridge until I need it next time.
Accompanying beef gyros with Tzatziki sauce is a good choice, spices in meat and sauce blend in well.

Tuna salad sandwich is a great choice of food for a lunch or to take with you when you are on the go.

When I saw recipe for stuffed leeks first time I decided for myself that I get to try cook something like this for sure: it looks unusual, have a lot of vegetables and doesn’t look hard to cook.
