stuffed mushrooms

For a scrumptious appetizer, consider my simple recipe for stuffed mushrooms! Stuff plump baby bella mushrooms with sauted garlic, mushroom stems, cheese and savory spices, then bake them golden brown in the oven. They make an attractive dish and are a tasty one-bite treat.

This healthy classic Ukrainian borscht recipe is filled with beets, beans, carrots, potatoes, and cabbage. It has a depth of flavor that gets even better as it simmers. Borscht is traditionally topped with sour cream and served with plenty of hearty, buckwheat or peasant style black bread.

ChefBear Complete Meals - olivier salad

olivier salad

When I visited Moscow a few years back, locals introduced me to this classic Russian salad. It resembles American potato salad, except it contains peas, carrots & ham. Since many regional versions of Olivier salad exist, feel free to add other tasty ingredients, like briny capers.

ChefBear Complete Meals - easy napoleons

easy napoleons

Napoleons have been perennial favorites in upscale bakeries for years. My easy version uses store-bought puff pastry layered with creamy vanilla pudding and a delicate icing. Garnish with a touch of chocolate or fresh fruit, the possibilities are really nearly endless.

ChefBear Complete Meals - currant & orange flavored vodka

currant & orange flavored vodka

Why pay premium dollar for fruit-infused vodka when you can save money and make it at home? Use my simple recipe that infuses tangy red currants and orange peel for a drink with a lovely red hue and refreshing fruit flavor. Drink your fruit vodka straight or use it for some of your favorite cocktails!
