Spinach Cheese DipSeptember 8th, 2018 in Appetizers & Snacks, Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina
One more recipe to the lineup of appetizers using cream cheese for me. This time it is for hot spinach cream cheese dip with parmesan and garlic.
Good choice if you are looking to increase the amount of leafy greens in your diet.
It is pretty easy to do and you can get a bowl full of goodness ready for your party or gathering literally in minutes.
Serve hot with tortilla chips or veggies.
Noodle Salad with Canadian Bacon and VeggiesFebruary 24th, 2018 in Main Dishes, Pasta, Salads by Julia Volhina
Various pasta or noodle salads is something totally unusual to the place where I can from.
But ever since I tried one, I am totally in love (my fitness-geeky-trying-to-be-conscious self is a bit less so, but sometimes it needs a break too).
This salad comes with a nice pack of veggies: tomatoes, bell peppers, corn. If you use whole wheat noodles and close your eyes on cheese and mayo we can almost call it healthy, right?
Fusilli or elbow pasta will work good here, other types may work too (okey, maybe be not spaghetti, but I think that is obvious). Tri-color pasta will make salad more festive, give it try if you need more color in your life…
Broccoli Cheddar SoupDecember 2nd, 2017 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Cold weather winter chill favorite, hot (as in temperature) and hearty, broccoli cheddar soup.
If you like this one just like I do, but wasn’t sure if you can make it, think no further: the recipe is pretty easy to follow.
The only tricky part is to make sure flour base doesn’t burn and is gradually mixed with half half and chicken broth until smooth and creamy – make sure the heat is low and continue stirring while mixing liquids in.
Mushroom and Chicken Stuffed PastaOctober 7th, 2017 in Chicken, Main Dishes, Pasta by Julia Volhina
It took me awhile to get back to stuffing some pasta shells after first attempt. So second recipe is featuring mushroom, chicken and cheese stuffing with cheese sauce on top.
A little bit heavy (pasta, cream, cheese), but also totally delicious I must say.
Not to hard to do, however will take some time to cook. And since leftovers can be easily reheated, can be great for lunch next day or two.
Pasta shells have tendency to break when cooked, so I usually boil few extra to make sure I have enough.
Salmon and Broccoli FrittataSeptember 23rd, 2017 in Eggs, Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
I am always not sure what the difference is between frittata, omelette or just crustless quiche: all of these have something to do with eggs, some sort of cream, cheese and various fillings.
In this recipe fillings are salmon, broccoli, asparagus and some greens. And today I will call it a frittata 🙂 And hey, it is full of veggies…
Great recipe for breakfast, lunch or whatever meal time you prefer.
Chicken, Tomato and Mushroom SaladApril 22nd, 2017 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Any time is a good time for a salad. Especially if it is a chicken salad loaded with protein, in a great combination with tomatoes and mushrooms.
This salad can be an entry on its own or a side to another dish.
I used boiled chicken for this one, however leftover rotisserie chicken or turkey will work here as well.
If you want to go lighter on calories with this recipe, use light mayo, or a combination of yogurt and mustard.
Spinach Crustless QuicheApril 8th, 2017 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina
It is green and delicious, it is spinach quiche.
Great recipe for weekend breakfast or brunch, when you want to eat something tasty without spending too much time and effort preparing it.
If you prefer quiches baked in crust, it will work too, just bake the crust, pour mixture in and cook according to directions below.
These ingredients will fit in 9-10 inch pan. Depending on how hungry you are, it will feed from 2 to 4 people.
