I made these mini cakes with my girls and they were delicious. I love spending time with my daughters in the kitchen. Baking or cooking with kids is such a great way to connect with each another, teach simple skills, build confidence and have fun as a family. Plus it is so much fun & delicious! Both of my daughters love to bake, just like their mama does. Growing up my mom used bake a lot. I loved spending time with my mom while we baked. Now that I have my own family, I continue to look for ways to preserve this baking tradition.
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!
Boiled Potatoes with Sautéed Onions is one of my favorite meals from my childhood. My mom made this dish very often. All you do is boil potatoes, sauté onions and serve with fresh dill. I love mushrooms so I modified my mom’s original recipe and added sautéed mushrooms. It tasted even better. Sorry mom.
This dish could be served as a delicious side dish to hearty stews or by itself just like my mom did.

Olivier is one of the most popular salads in Russia. It is made with diced potatoes, carrots, eggs, dill pickles and dressed with mayonnaise sauce. Variations of the salad differ from the choice of meat. It could be poultry, beef, ham or sausages. This salad is a must on the dinner table for Christmas, as well as other festive occasions. My version of Oliver salad has Canadian bacon.
