    These cookies are just too adorable. The taste reminds me of brownies and at the same time, an extra crunch on the outside. They are always a huge hit when I make them.

    I love this cake, not only because it's chocolate, but how moist and light it tastes. This is definitely one of my favorite cakes. Although instructions on this cake seem never ending, they are actually a collection of very simple, general cake tips, that apply to most cakes. So it shouldn't be all that complicated.

    My mom makes bread for whole family every week. I know back in days in Ukraine in small town it was necessary to know how to bake bread. I tried learning from mom and every time my bread wasn’t nearly as good as moms. Now with this bread I try to compete with mom, lol… I love the taste of this bread, my husband loves it even more and he is from family where they don’t really eat any bread....

    Potato pancakes are very popular in Slavic community, in terms of breakfast. It's a combination of a very few simple ingredients such as potatoes, onion, eggs, seasoning and, on some occasions, even flour. Crunchy edges of the potato pancakes were my favorite, during childhood. I often asked mom to fry my piece for a longer time to make it extra crispy.

    Here is a pretty funny story. Back in Ukraine we always picked mushrooms, so here when we found out that some places here also grow mushrooms, my family was excited. Tim & I decided to join them one time to pick some. It was in the mountains; Tim tells me that he will climb high up. I was following him. Almost at the top he says, "look there is a bear!" OHH WOW!!! I wanted to scream, cry...

  • 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.

  • Salmon Mushroom Bake

    Few years back I had girls get together at my place for a recipe exchange party. It was so much fun, bonding with the ladies while enjoying yummy food. Years later this salmon dish is still one of my favorite dishes from that day.

    This salmon bake is absolutely amazing. The juice of an onion gives salmon nice sweetness, topped with some mushrooms and cheese is so delicious.
