Refreshing Limeade 2021-08-31
What better way to cool yourself on a hot summer day (especially this summer!) than a cool glass of limeade.
Russian Bliny 2021-03-27
A classic that has its many spins in different cuisines, including Russian cuisine. Recently was the maslenitsa, so as usual I decided to prepare them. They can be filled with sweets or meat or basically any food.
Sunday Morning Milkshake 2021-01-18
A sweet and refreshing milkshake that barely requires any effort to make. You're not required to make it and drink it on Sunday, it was just almost a tradition in my family to make it on the weekends, and it somehow does taste better on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
Spicy Chili con Carne 2020-11-03
This recipe is for those who like their food a little spicy. A classic of Tex-Mex cuisine, although its true origins are disputed.
Refried Beans 2020-10-02
One of my favorite dishes that works either as an appetizer or side dish is refried beans. A classic from Mexican cuisine, that is best eaten with some totopos, or tortilla chips.
Pasta Navy Style 2020-08-02
This is one of the three pasta dishes that I usually cook, one of which I have posted before here. It's a Russian pasta recipe that is fast and easy to make and is quite tasty.
Fresh Guacamole 2020-08-01
A nice recipe that functions as a delicious and fresh appetizer, best eaten with some totopos corn chips, especially in a hot summer day.
Beef Goulash 2020-06-22
This recipe requires a bigger set of ingredients than usual - mostly herbs and spices - and it takes quite some time to prepare - about 1hr 30 minutes. However, it is actually quite easy to make, and it is a really hearty and delicious recipe, if I do say so myself.
Merchant's Buckwheat 2020-06-14
Buckwheat is not very popular outside Russia, the former USSR, and some Asian countries; but it is a nice grain full of nutrients which can be used to prepare delicious and nutritious dishes. This recipe takes a little bit more time than other recipes I've posted here, but it is quite easy to make.
Creamy Mashed Potatoes 2020-06-13
Mashed potatoes is a really great recipe that is often relegated to the position of side dish. This recipe is a spin of the classical mashed potatoes recipe that's got itself more going on. You can serve this dish for a relatively light meal, or you can also serve it as a side dish if you want to have a really hearty meal.
