    When we got married, I made potatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My husband complained that all I know how to make is potatoes. Well, I am Ukrainian!!! Lol, that’s all we ate.

    This lasagna is not a typical one that is sold at stores. Often, store bough lasagnas have large amounts of sauce and small amounts of good cheese and/or meat. This dish is fairly easy to make and will make your guests be in awe from your Italian cooking. While making this dish, I like to make an extra one for a friend or freeze one for a busy day.

    Stuffed Chicken Thigh are also knows for being called "Solomon Golubtsi". They are known to be served at Slavic weddings as one of the main dishes. In our family we prepare them for holidays and special celebrations.

    This dish has a nice balance of meat and rice. I like the tenderizer chicken around the rice with baked crispy skin of the chicken.

    Most people don’t cover their cabbage rolls with sauce. I think that creamy sauce makes it so much better. Great way to make them is by making double the recipe and freeze some for another time. I also like to take some to my friend that has a new born, this makes great dish.

    Here is another recipe for cabbage rolls, it has more pictures... (recipe/212)

  • Roasted Lamb

    The most important part for me in preparing a lamb roast, is to marinate it in advance. Browning all sides of the meat is a great tip for making any roast. It will keep juices on the inside of the meat. Very simple and such a timeless meal to make, yet so delicious.

    Roulade is especially a great appetizer to have during holidays and parties. It's made beforehand and served cold over the next several days.

    It is also one of my favorite snacks to have around the house. Often, I have moments when I open a fridge, grab a snack and go; and it helps to have these roulades, sliced and ready to grab.
