Quick Pastry Puff Dough Recipe {Быстрый Pецепт Cлоеного Tеста}

Since the dough contains no yeast, the way this pastry puffs in the oven is pure magic. Okay, so it's not magic, it's chemistry. But puff pastry is still one of the most satisfying items to bake. Puff pastry is leavened by water in the layers of butter and  dough evaporating in the hot oven, causing the layers to separate. This is the easiest recipe for Pastry Puff and it's so universal.. It will be ready in 2 hours. Think of many possibilities of what you can make with it, like cakes and pies (sweet and savory), pirojki and pastries. The dough is very soft and crumbly.

Stuffed Bubliki with Meat {Бублики с Mясом}


Bubliki is like little bagels but they are dry. It turns out that bubliki can be used not only as a great addition to the tea, but also to filled  with the meat. I love dried bubliki stuffed with meat from childhood. This dish is a great for family celebrations. Bubliki with meat can be attributed to the appetizer and to a meat dish. Perfectly suited to the children's table. Adults also have great pleasure in eating bubliki and by the way, you get full very quickly.

Sauerkraut Recipe {Квашеная капуста}

One of the not so secret benefits of sauerkraut is the boost it gives to immune systems. Packed with vitamins and minerals, sauerkraut has been used as a lay immune booster for centuries. Sauerkraut contains phytochemicals which are created during the fermentation process. These naturally occurring, beneficial by products of sauerkraut help boost the immune system which leads to a decrease in a number of health problems. The common cold, skin problems, weight gain and tainted blood are all fixed by a healthy functioning immune system. This is a traditional Russian recipe. I love to make Venigret salad with sauerkraut.

Fresh Salmon Red Caviar Recipe


Making caviar at home is not nearly so hard as you might think. It is a miraculous product, beautiful as jewels with a briny pop that adds color and texture to all sorts of dishes. And freshly made caviar will last 2-3 weeks in the fridge, too. Caviar is excellent as an appetizer. It's perfect geometrical form allows it to be arranged decoratively. Caviar is also good in sandwiches and is perfect with butter on white bread or toast. But some people prefer to eat it with soft cake cheese, known to enhance the flavor of caviar. Red caviar often goes with traditional Russian pancakes. As far as drinks go, everything is logical with caviar, being a luxury. We got 5 salmons, all with caviar. So I made this Russian delicacy.
