Meat with PrunesJune 6th, 2009 in Beef, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
For meat with prunes you can use either pork or beef. I think, pork tastes even better prepared this way, especially if prunes you have are not too sweet, so I advise you to go with pork.
However if you don’t like pork for some reasons or if you don’t have it just like I did when I were writing this article, you can use beef. I must say it tastes also delicious!

Fried PotatoesMay 24th, 2009 in Sides by Julia Volhina
I think fried potatoes is one of the first dishes I learned how to do myself when I was a kid, well besides sandwiches of course. So believe me it is easy to do.
Fried potato is great side for any kind of fried main dishes: meat, poultry, fish or even vegetables. And unlike the french-fries (which is kind of similar food) fried potato use much smaller amount of salt and oil, so I believe it is a bit more healthy.

Radish and Fresh Cheese SaladMarch 29th, 2009 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Radish and Fresh Cheese Salad is a tasty way to feed yourself and your family a bit of calcium 🙂
I did have some troubles finding a suitable fresh cheese for this recipe, it should be fresh white quark (russian: tvorog), neither cottage cheese nor cream cheese will work here.
So if you have the same problem finding quark style fresh cheese like I had, try local Russian / Ukrainian / Polish store, most probably they have it. Of course, you can also make homemade soft cheese yourself.

Meatballs SoupMarch 8th, 2009 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Eating soups is healthy, let’s also make it tasty!
Homemade beef broth, a lot of vegetables and meatballs, sounds good for me, what about you?
If you don’t want to play with making broth yourself, canned beef or chicken one will work as well, this will also save you some time.
You may dilute it with water since meatballs will contribute to broth as well.
