Russian Bliny 2021-03-27

Russian Bliny

A classic that has its many spins in different cuisines, including Russian cuisine. Recently was the maslenitsa1, 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

My milkshakes bring all the boys (and girls) to the yard

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.

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

Beef Goulash

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

Merchant's Buckwheat

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

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

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.

Cheesy Meatballs with Tomato Sauce 2020-06-07

Cheesy Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

This recipe is a little bit more elaborate than the other ones I've posted, but it's still worth the time and effort to prepare. Nothing beats meat, cheese and tomato combined together to create the best combination of flavors that man has created.
