Cucumber and Dill SaladMay 23rd, 2015 in Salads, Sides by Julia Volhina
This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.
Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.
I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.
Beef Liver with Sour CreamMarch 28th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Let’s bring liver back to the table: for as nutritious as it is, it doesn’t get nearly enough of the spotlight.
This easy recipe will help you to add all the goodness beef liver has into your diet.
I noticed that in US it is easier to find pre-sliced and cleaned liver, but in case you buy a whole piece, you will need to clean it, remove hard vessel parts and slice it up before continuing with the recipe.
Liver tastes great with boiled buckwheat, this is my first choice for a side dish for any main course with liver.
Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour CreamFebruary 14th, 2015 in Main Dishes, Rabbit by Julia Volhina
Rabbit meat is considered to be lean and overall healthy meat option. We were cooking rabbits pretty often at home in Ukraine. But here in US I was never lucky enough to see one in store.
This seem had changed recently: both, Whole Foods and Giant Eagle Market District in area where we live, now started carrying young rabbits (I hope it isn’t some kind of trial).
So I couldn’t resist, bought one and decided to share this simple and yet pretty tasty recipe for rabbit stew with mushrooms and sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Fall is a perfect time to cook some squash. Spaghetti squash.

Stewed spaghetti squash will work great for dunner or lunch. Leftovers can be easily reheated in microwave.
Shrimps in Sour Cream SauceJuly 19th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Fast recipe to fix shrimps: simmer them for few minutes in sour cream and butter sauce.
I used raw cleaned shrimps for the recipe. But boiled ones will work as well, just reduce cooking time and temperature (no need for boiling).
Shrimps prepared this way can be a dish on its own, an appetizer or a snack, or it can be served over a bed of rice or pasta.
Chicken and Buckwheat CasseroleJuly 5th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
I know that buckwheat isn’t something people in this part of the world eat. But I like it, and it is very nutritious to say the least.
I also was so pleased to find roasted version of it in stock of local Whole Foods (which I either didn’t pay attention to before, or they kind of decided to be adventures and try it), so I decided to publish an interesting recipe using buckwheat this week.
Cooking buckwheat in the same pan with chicken, onions, garlics and sour cream gives it nice taste (and makes one pot less to clean, yay!). You can serve casserole as soon as it is ready, storing it leftovers in fridge and then reheating them makes a nice lunch too.
I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, but any boneless chicken meat will work just fine.
Eggplant Roast with VegetablesMay 17th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
This is nice looking dish which can be served as either a main entree, a side dish, or an appetizer.
It contains no meat, just eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese.
Eggplant roasted this way looks festive (and will for sure fit nicely on a holiday table), and it is also pretty easy to do.
One medium size eggplant will produce 2-3 servings.
