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.
Jäger Sauce (Mushroom Hunter Sauce)November 19th, 2016 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina
It took me couple of tries to get close enough in recreating a recipe for Jager Sauce which I tried in local German restaurant.
I must say I love how it turned out: creamy, mushroomy with a hint of wine and a little more than a hint of smoked bacon.
Traditionally, Jager Sauce is being served with schnitzels.
And I found it works great with meat roasts and fried meat, as well as with any kind of potato sides.
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.
Veal Rolls with Feta Cheese, Garlic and OlivesApril 20th, 2013 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This recipe is not so budgety, prices for veal in US are somewhat high, but I like veal meat: it is lean and tender.
To reduce cost a bit, another part of veal can be substituted for scallopini here, pieces should be sliced thin, beef will do too but may need to be cooked longer to be tender.
Use any kind of white wine you like, it can be also served later with the course.
Mussels Steamed with Shallots in Wine and Butter SauceFebruary 9th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is a recipe for tender mussels steamed with shallots, garlic and fresh greens in dry white wine and butter sauce. It will work great for a romantic dinner.
Use good white wine you would drink yourself for this recipe to achieve best results. And serve remaining of the wine along with mussels later.
Steamed mussels go great with toast garlic bread or a baguette with garlic.

Cranberry Sauce for MeatNovember 17th, 2012 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina
Cranberry sauce seem to be one of traditional dishes served on Thanksgiving dinner.
Since I didn’t have many of these (being in US for about 4 years now and not having family here) I had to do a bit of research to find a recipe.
I apologize in advance if the recipe doesn’t look too traditional. Please, feel free to share yours in comments, I promise to try them out!
