About this Cook
I'm mom of two, wife and a housewife currently. Like to cook my favorites and to learn new recipes everyday as I have a lot of free time!
My favorite things to cook
Can't even tell. Many.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our traditions are our recipes that came to me from my grandma's. It's Russian soups, salads, piroshki, cakes, stews any many more.
My cooking tragedies
Yesterday's Falafel that didn't come out right or I just didn't like the taste of Garbanzo beans :)

Buttercream Icing
It's came out pretty good, but as others recommended here I used shortening, but I replaced half shortening with cream cheese as we love it. So I ended up with 50/25/25% butter/ shortening/cream cheese. I also used half sugar (and for me it was still soooooo sweet:) ), and doubled vanilla extract. As I was going to decorate my cake with grass, I also found that adding 1 tsp of cream of tartar helps my cream to hold better.

Blackened Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa
I'm Russian and we do not eat this kind of things, so I didn't really care about it. But my hubby (american) said that he hasn't had anything like that for 7 years (while he's not in US). he said it was AWESOME!!! he almost cried because it reminded him his friends :) plus he's not mango eater, so I was kinda worry that he won't like salsa, but he did! now he's ordered same but chicken :) Thank you for this great recipe and that you helped me making my hubby so happy :)

Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms
These were delicious. I did have Champignons though, but they came out very delicious! I'll cook those more and more!
