Ikra is known as eggplant “caviar” in Russia, one of my favorite appetizers lathered on fresh-baked bread. It is a traditional blend of eggplant, fresh tomatoes, bell pepper, carrots, onions and spices slow-cooked together to savory perfection.
In Russian cuisine there are varieties of different salads for canning. Lecho is one of them. People are using different kinds of vegetables during summer and autumn to can and store them for cold winter days when all the plants sleep. This salad is easy to make, delicious and great to have on hand. I use it as a sauce for my stuffed Bell Peppers or serve as a side dish or salad by itself.
This towering stack of layered zucchini, fresh red tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and refreshing dill mayonnaise sauce is the happy result of farmer’s market inspiration. This super easy recipe is packed full of flavor and great for entertaining (just fry zucchini in advance and assemble them when needed). I’ve made these at least three- four different ways: different cheeses, layered with basil on top, or mixed grated cheese in the sauce, etc etc. If you’ve got a different way please comment! I’d love to hear all the different way you stack your zucchini.

I love fish especially salmon. Salmon is a very healthy fish. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acid and is great for your heart. Pickled fish might sound really strange but it’s a very popular classical Russian dish. We call it Selyodka which is pickled Herring. We use Selyodka in many traditional dishes like “Russian Shuba Herring Layered Salad”. Try this simple and delicious recipe of pickled salmon. It doesn’t last very long in my family!
I love breakfast sandwiches. This open face savory sandwich makes a perfect breakfast meal. Fluffy scrambled eggs, rich smoked salmon, creamy avocado and tangy feta cheese over English muffin; Delish…. Give this a try and have a lovely, creamy and cheesy good morning!
This is a simple breakfast for a lazy Sunday, when you don’t feel like cooking. My husband prepares homemade smoked salmon and I love making sandwiches with it. The combination of fresh cucumber, dill, cream cheese, and hardboiled eggs works well with the smoked salmon on multigrain bread. To finish it off, I also add caviar.

These smashed potatoes are by far one of the easiest potato recipes to make, and they are also now my family’s favorite. This recipe inspired by mom’s dish. They are similar to potato skins - but much less work. You start by boiling them in the water, which softens them up nicely. Smash slightly and top them with some olive oil, parmesan cheese and fresh herbs, then they get in the oven to get golden brown and crispy. Super easy to make and tasty!
