Meatballs in Milk SauceNovember 3rd, 2018 in Beef, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Not so complicated recipe for meatballs, will take roughly an hour to cook and will produce quite a lot to eat after.
These meatballs taste great straight from the oven or reheated later on. Pair well with mashed potatoes, pasta or grains (like boiled buckwheat here for example).
Trickiest trick here is to not burn the sauce while cooking, just make sure cooking temperature is low enough for light simmer and stir pot from time to time, using thicksided cooking pot or a deep cast iron skillet is a good option too.
Chicken and Mushroom Quiche PieAugust 25th, 2018 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is a variation of a quiche pie with chicken and mushrooms and no crust.
Not a quickest recipe to cook, however as soon as you stick it to the oven, it does not require much attention, just checking the readiness would be the thing to do.
Using pre-cooked chicken (rotisserie or boiled leftovers) is an option here, just fry mushrooms alone and add cooked chicken to the batter. It will speed up the cooking as well.
This pie would taste great for breakfast, lunch or brunch.
Chicken and Cabbage PattiesMay 19th, 2018 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Getting inventive with chicken patties: using cabbage instead of bread or breadcrumbs as filler.
I must say these are a hit: juicy and very tasty.
And so quick and easy to do, especially if you use ready to go minced chicken meat and food processor for cabbage and onion.
These patties taste great with potatoes or grains (I served these with boiled buckwheat), salads as well are great choice here.
Pasta with Asparagus and ParmesanApril 21st, 2018 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina
Good recipe for no-meat linguine or fettuccine pasta.
Pretty quick to make, nothing sophisticated, plain and simple steps to follow, as quick as cooking pasta itself.
Secret chief’s secret: don’t overcook asparagus and don’t burn garlic, that is about it.
Great recipe when you are short on time and need to eat.
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.
Roasted Pork tenderloin with Spicy RubJanuary 28th, 2017 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Somehow I never roasted a pork tenderloin until about month ago. And now once I tried, I can’t stop doing it.
Not only it is very easy and fast to cook, but it also turns out very delicious and tender, and spices can be varied to whatever you like.
You can use pretty much any ready-to-use pork meat rub here. Sometimes I do, and other times I make my own, see list of spices in the recipe.
