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.
Chicken and Mushroom SaladDecember 21st, 2013 in Salads by Julia Volhina
It is a holiday season. In slavic world rare holiday table will go by without tons of salads, actually none will.
This is why I will try to focus on salad recipes these couple of week (as much as I can, during with my vacation to Ukraine).
This salad recipe calls for just few ingredients: chicken, mushrooms, eggs and mayo are main ingredients. And there is no onions or garlic, which makes this salad a good choice for lunch on a go.
Ricotta Cheese Stuffed PastaNovember 30th, 2013 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina
This is my first take on stuffed jumbo pasta shells, but I will must say it will not not be last: there are so many stuffings these may work nicely with.
In this recipe pasta is stuffed with five cheeses (ricotta, parmesan, provolone, mozzarella and romano), fresh parsley and egg mix.
For sauce I tried something new too: that is canned crushed tomatoes, usually I avoid using canned vegetables, but these worked well for sauce and saved me quite some time too.
Chicken Cutlets with Mushroom and CheeseAugust 3rd, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dishes 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.
Quick Crescent Rolls with Meat and CheeseJuly 20th, 2013 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
I was short on time this couple of weeks having visitors at home and at work. So I didn’t have much time to prepare a recipe in time for today.
It is a bit unusual of me to use “ready-to-use” ingredients in my food, but they save time if you need it to attend to other things.
Crescent dough sold in store makes decent rolls, which are good when you need to cook something to bite fast. So here is one of recipes for these.
I used ham as meat for this recipe, because that is what I had in my fridge. But you can be creative and use cooked bacon, or canadian bacon, or hot dogs, or another sausage, or a combination of these to your taste.
Blue Cheese DipMarch 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).
