Light, Easy and Delish Strawberry Salad

RU

After a long trip to the motherland, tons of pelmeni, vodka, and other unhealthy stuff I am back to the blog.

The main thing I do after coming back from long gastro trips is – detox. I put aside alcoholic beverages, meats, fried food and only leave what’s good.

Last night a realized that I will only eat something that contains strawberries until the end of the summer (probably will for a week and then drop :D).

This salad popped in my mind out of random when I smelled fresh strawberries at the farmers market. There was no better meal that day!

Huevos Rancheros

RU

Since moving to California in 2015 I instantly got into Mexican cuisine and got quite a number of friends with Mexican heritage but for some reason, I have not cooked any of their dishes until mid-2017.

Huevos Rancheros (or rancher’s eggs) is a traditional midday or late morning dish in Mexico cooked in rural areas of Mexico. Recipes may vary to satisfy family’s taste buds and preferences but one thing I can tell for sure: it always has fresh eggs, corn tortillas, and tomatoes.

Simple Shakshuka

RU

Shakshuka is generally a Mediterranean dish which can be eaten any time of the day. I normally eat it for breakfast, but some people claim that it is also great for brunch and even dinner. It is a great source of protein and traditionally does not contain any meat, so some of you, my vegetarian friends should love it!

After growing my own thyme for several weeks I decided to add it to my shakshuka and it really made the dish taste better!

Asparagus, Cherry Tomato, Mushroom and Honeyed Goat Cheese Galette

RU

Hey! May is officially here! It’s time to really use up those spring ingredients because summer is just 1 month away!

During my long-term relationship with asparagus, I ‘ve’learned that many people either love it or hate it. Guess what? I am the one who is deeply in love with this ingredient and can think of a 100 recipes that I can make with asparagus.

Today we are making rather a simple recipe that is good for warm weather and is suitable for family events!

Ladies and gents: Asparagus galette!

Classic Mushroom Pasta

RU

Whenever I travel somewhere, I always want to make sure to get the most authentic experience from the country. Especially food experiences. When I was in Rome, it was hard to recognize authentic restaurants since there are so many tourist traps with overcooked pasta and cream in the sauce ( how could you treat your pasta this way?!).

Anyway, one of my Instagram followers – Livingintravels is traveling across Italy and currently spending time on Rome. Her pictures reminded me of how great the food is in there and how awesome they treat their pasta. So I decided to make an authentic Italian pasta and show you the proper way of cooking it.

Beet Hummus

RU

Hey everyone! I had some beets left from the previous recipe and decided to make something from leftovers. Since i love hummus a lot, it became my first choice.

Do not hesitate buying a jar of tahini sauce. It can serve you well in other dishes including burgers or even cookies.

If you are hosting a superbowl party this weekend, your guests will highly appreciate this healthy option. This hummus goes incredibly well with pita chips, celery or cucumbers.

BeetBurger

RU

Superbowl is coming up this Sunday! For me this football event has always been sort of like a Thanksgiving or Christmas: we feast, we drink and we celebrate! Food on this day is extremely important and I try to do my best to prepare the table.

Since I decided to become peschetarian/vegetarian for a while, I realized  that this year’s menu should look a little different, at least for myself. Sticking to the burgers was a great option because who doesn’t love them? I came up with a fancy recipe for burger patty made of beets, experimented for the first part and the week and voila!

Baked Cauliflower With Healthy Peperonata Sauce

RU

Well Hello, there my dear readers. I’m alive and finally back from this madly long holiday season which happens to be the most unhealthy one.

January is one of the most stressful months of the year: you have to pull yourself together after partying line an animal or being on omnivore for a month, go back to work, start eating healthy and finally pay a visit to the gym. I’m sure that most of you have been swearing in your NYE resolutions to start eating normal foods, drink less alcohol etc, etc.

The bad news is: Mondays will never make you lose weight, so won’t any first day of the month. The good news: your commitment and passion to your “lose weight” resolution will definitely do something good! So why wait for tomorrow when you can start cooking healthy today?
