Fruit Salad with YogurtAugust 2nd, 2014 in Desserts, Salads by Julia Volhina
Here is your step away from something usually called a dessert: fresh fruit salad dressed with plain yogurt.
No flour, no sugar, almost no fat (if you use low-fat yogurt); only fresh raw fruits loaded with vitamins and tons of good nutrients.
Besides being a dessert, this salad can be great choice for breakfast or lunch or just a snack when you need it.
You can mix and match fruits to your liking for this one. I used pineapples, banana, orange, apple, kiwi and pear. Mint is also optional and can be skipped it if you don’t like it.
Veal Rolls with PearMarch 15th, 2014 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
I saw veal rolls with pear meal in some TV show once and wanted to try it ever since.
The combination of ingredients in this recipe is unusual, veal is pretty expensive and somewhat hard to find here in US. This is probably the reason why I got to this recipe only now.
I used veal scallopini here, because they are already sliced, and it is easier to pick meat pieces of right amount and size. But you can also use whole piece of veal meat and slice it yourself. As for the pear, use ripe fragrant pear for better results.
Fruit and Berry KompotFebruary 1st, 2014 in Beverages, Non-alcoholic by Julia Volhina
This recipe gives me another chance to advertise the benefit of homemade drinks over store sold soda full of sugar and god knows what else: making drink for yourself gives you control over how much sugar it has exactly.
Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries are nice choice for this kompot, strawberries are nice addition too. I used frozen berry mix – it is cheaper and easier to get, however fresh berries will work the same well.
Fruit and berry kompot taste great warm, or cooled down to room temperature, or iced, whatever you prefer more. Fruits from the kompot taste great too, you can serve them with or without kompot.
Dried Fruit Kompot (Uzvar)January 2nd, 2010 in Beverages, Non-alcoholic by Julia Volhina
Uzvar is a kompot made from dried fruits: mainly apples, pears and prunes, however various recipes include raisins, dried sour cherries and even dried apricots.
Even though this drink is traditionally served to Christmas Eve dinner in some countries of West Europe (e.g. Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Lithuania), I really can’t find a reason why it can’t be a great better choice to drink before all those sugary-artificially prepared sodas people consume so much those days.
Uzvar, or as it also called in ex-USSR countries – Kompot made from Dried Fruits, is very refreshing, tasty and easy to do. I highly recommend this drink to everybody, prepare it for your kids – they will love it!
