Cilantro Lime ShrimpsMarch 24th, 2018 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina
Discovered this simple way to dress boiled shrimps while trying to recreate a similar one from Costco: marinate boiled shrimps in lime juice, spices and cilantro.
Of course the taste is not exactly the same as of Costco ones, but the list of ingredients is also much shorter.
These shrimps can be served on their own as appetizer or added to salads or tacos.
Using already cooked, peeled and deveined shrimps like I did will save a lot of time, if you want to cook and/or clean shrimps yourself, factor the time in for it.
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.
Homemade Chickpea HummusJuly 15th, 2017 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads, Sides by Julia Volhina
Got a can or two of chickpeas stuck in the pantry? Or boiled a cup too many of garbanzo beans and looking for creative way to use them? Try this homemade hummus recipe.
It takes about 5 mins to make and you get a fresh batch of hummus to eat with your favorite vegetables, pita bread, chips or for further use in other recipes.
For this recipe I cooked beans from scratch. If you do the same save some of the water beans are cooked in and use it instead of water in this recipe.
Beer Pork RoastJuly 1st, 2017 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Perfect pork roast made of few ingredients: turns out juicy and tasteful. It is pretty easy to cook, doesn’t require much cooking skills if any at all.
This pork roast tastes great warm fresh from the oven, as well as cooled down. Pairs well with roasted vegetables or a salad.
Marinating will require few hours and can go over night if needed.
Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Pork LoinMarch 25th, 2017 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Creative way to stuff pork loin – slice it up like a “book”, marinate, put tasty ingredients in between “pages” and then roast.
I stuffed pork loin with tomato slices, shredded cheese and sliced thin garlic cloves for a hint of spice.
For this recipe meat is marinated for about 12 hours before cooking. So allow some time for that, you will not be disappointed.
Baked Cod in Tomato SauceMarch 11th, 2017 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Perfect recipe for pretty much any white fish: easy to cook and turns out tasty and juicy.
I used cod here. Marinating cod in lemon juice helps to bring out nice texture and make sure it is soft.
Sometimes cod can torn out chewy after cooking, but it is not a case with this recipe.
Pair baked cod with boiled or roasted potatoes and a glass of nice wine for a romantic dinner.
Beef Potato Mushroom CasseroleFebruary 25th, 2017 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Not the fastest recipe to cook, but it is definitely worth trying: two layers of potato and beef mushroom stuffing in between, all dressed up with sour cream sauce – tastes delicious fresh out of the oven. And also reheats well.
I used ground beef for this one, but any ground meat will work as well. Just use the one you like.
If you have a mandoline – use it, otherwise make sure potatoes are sliced in equally thick pieces for even cooking.
