Meat Stew with BeansJanuary 31st, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
If you are looking for quick recipe with meat – try meat stew with beans.
It is pretty quick and is not too complicated to do: cooking time will depend on the meat cut you use, but in average it is between 30 and 45 mins.
I used beef (chuck roast cut) for this one, but pork will work for this recipe as well.
Raw Vegetable Salad with FetaAugust 30th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
I am trying to eat my vegetables raw at the moment (losing some weight, trying to eat more healthy, running and such). So this is a salad which I make for myself for lunch at work to accomplish this.
It takes about 10 mins to do all the slicing and dicing. And maybe 5 more for cleaning and packing.
Occasionally I add to it raw corn, onions, spinach, lettuce to vary things up, but cucumbers, tomatoes, mini peppers and avocado are always present.
Creamy Fusilli Pasta with Broccoli and CheeseApril 26th, 2014 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina
Easy recipe to do fusilli pasta cooked with cream, broccoli and cheese.
I used italian blend cheese mix, but I think other cheese or cheeses will work as well.
As well as other kind of pasta, fusilli seemed like one of the choices, others will work good too.
Just cook pasta to your liking (or/and according to the package instructions until al dente).
No Yeast Puff Pastry Dough (Faster Variant)February 22nd, 2014 in Tips, Advices & How-to by Julia Volhina
Real puff pastry dough is taking a lot of time to make from scratch, most of the times it is easier to just buy it instead. Another alternative could be to try this easier and much faster variant.
Disclaimer first: this dough will probably not be a best choice for some fancy croissants or so, but it will work great for layered cakes, pies, sugar cookies, and such.
Either butter or margarine will work for this recipe, I used margarine. Make sure you don’t let ingredients and dough itself warm up, if you need to pause while making the dough, put it to the fridge to cool down.
Prepared dough can be used right away, or can be frozen for later use, make sure to use freezer bag.
Fried Rice with ShrimpsDecember 28th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
One more recipe for fried rice, this time with shrimps.
As any fried rice, it is pretty easy and fast to cook, especially if you use frozen vegetables, just don’t forget to unfreeze them as well as shrimps in advance before cooking.
Most of the salt for this recipe comes from soy sauce, only eggs need a bit of additional salting.
Vegetables with CreamDecember 14th, 2013 in No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Vegetables with cream are pretty easy to cook and they make a great side dish for meat or poultry. It can also be served as a no-meat course.
I used carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets with peas for this recipe, but it will also work good with green beans, zucchini, brussels sprouts, whatever you have on your hands.
The same, you can use either fresh vegetables or frozen ones, or a combination of these. For example, for this recipe I used fresh broccoli and cauliflower with frozen sliced carrots and frozen peas.
Scrambled Eggs with Ham and TomatoesAugust 10th, 2013 in Eggs, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
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.
