Russian Cabbage Borscht

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
Been living in Russia for 10 years, and this was one of the best I've tried. There are several types of borsch - sweet or sour, tomato-ey or beet-ey. This is a beet-ey, sweet one which is just the type that I love. Tasted very authentic. I put in two medium sized beets (more than the recipe called for), and about 1.25L of broth (also more). I also added 350g of cubed beef. Simmered for about 4 hours. I would say it could about 4 people. No need to debate the merits of certain ingredients and whether they should or shouldn't be in a "real" borsch recipe. The end result is that this tastes exactly as borsch should.

Caribbean Rum Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Simple and decent. Was in the mood for something a bit tangy so only used half the sugar. Worked well, got pretty smashed :). The nutmeg gave it an aroma which reminded me of bananas.

Cranberry Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
These really are something special. The only thinkg I changed was adding a few drops of Worcestershire sauce to the meat. Also, for some reason, out here in Russia you can't seem to get cranberry jam or sauce. There is, however, an abundance of "cowberry" jam, which worked wonderfully!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Brilliant! I made a few changes (which I never usually do): 1. Took the advice of of another reviewer and seasoned the meat with s&p, then browned the meat first in a skillet with the onion and a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce 2. After meat was brown, threw all the ingredients in the pot together and covered them with water (instead of just 1 cup of water). I did add the barley separately though. 3. Omitted the stock cubes and oil 4. Added 5 bay leaves 5. Added 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder It looks like a lot of changes, but because I left out the stock cubes, I had to compensate them with stronger flavours in other areas. I ended up adding quite a lot of salt and pepper to make up for the absence of the cubes. Anyway, it's a fantastic recipe, and lasted me 4 days
