Today I will share my recipe for Blueberry Filled Varenyky, which is so delicious when served with blueberry syrup and whipped cream or melted unsalted butter mixed with brown sugar and cream.
When blueberries are in season and the prices are very affordable, I stock up and freeze them for later use.
Besides eating them fresh, adding them to pancakes, making filling for my varenyky (perogies), preparing smoothies, I also use them in baking.
I already posted several recipes for blueberry cakes, but today I will share my latest blueberry sheet cake recipe which I love, and I am sure you will enjoy it as well.
Vera is a friend of mine who is an excellent cook and a wonderful baker. I love all her recipes, and she shares them with anyone who is interested in trying them out.
Today I will share her recipe for Blueberry Muffins which are simple to make, require a few basic ingredients, and absolutely melt in your mouth. She suggests mixing anything you wish into the batter (fruits, berries, nuts, chocolate chips….), and tweaking the recipe to your preference.
I have just picked some fresh cucumbers from my garden…..they are so fresh, and so much tastier than the ones from the store (no wax on these ones….). Garden fresh cucumbers actually do have a very nice taste, and can be eaten with the peel on, but I prefer them peeled.
Cucumbers may be used in a variety of ways: in tossed salads, as cucumber tea sandwiches, sliced and served plain or with a dip, used in numerous appetizers, etc. I love my cucumbers in a cucumber salad, dressed with sour cream or vinaigrette style.
Most of you already are familiar with Cabbage Rolls, but to Eastern European cooks, they are known as Holupki. Holubtsi, or Golabki. All Cabbage Rolls may look the same, yet be very different, depending on the filling used to prepare them. The most popular filling consists of cooked rice mixed with ground beef and spices; however you can also use rice or buckwheat mixed with mushrooms, spiced up mashed potatoes, or a vegetarian filling, which I will introduce in this recipe. Cabbage Rolls are not the easiest dish to prepare, since it requires a lot of prep work beforehand, especially the cabbage, but if you love them, it’s well worth the effort.
