Baked Hash Brown Potatoes

Hash Brown Potatoes

Me and my auntie like to get together and cook/bake new things :) One day we made tons of things together and she threw these potatoes together for a side dish and they turned out amazing! This is the perfect hash recipe that is so simple to make, The outside of the potato is slightlycrispy and the inside is perfectly soft. You guys will love these.

I have made these quite a few times since then and everyone loves them! I also love to make these for breakfast/brunch to serve alone side with eggs and veggies, These also are amazing with chicken on the side.

Oven-Baked Fish with Salsa

Oven-Baked Fish with Salsa

A few months ago I was over at my mom’s helping her make dinner for us and friends and she decided to add some salsa over the fish and see how it would turn out. Not gonna lie but I was a little nervous because I have never heard of that combination, but to my surprise It was the first dish to go at the dinner, Everyone absolutely LOVED it!

I love making this fish on busy days because it is SO quick to prep. When I host I make it a few hours in advance and have it waiting in the fridge before I put it in the oven, don’t you love when you can do that!

You can use any any other favorite fish of yours for the recipe! Personally I don’t like super fishy fish and this one isn’t at all! Tilapia, Cod and Basa would work great as well. My mom usually uses Basa.

Meatballs with Vegetables (Kotleti)

Meatballs with Vegetables (kotleti)

I love the idea of adding Veggies into meat, especially if you have toddlers or kids, You sneak them in and they have no idea, and on top of that it adds nice flavor to it! Its a win win situation :)

My toddler used to be so picky and he did not want to eat meat at all BUT when I came up with these patties he absolutely loved them and kept on eating them! I was one happy mama :) Plus my hubby loved these too so we eat these up quick! Who doesn’t love a good moist meatball (kotleti)

Chicken Teriyaki Wrap Recipe

Chicken Teriyaki Wrap Recipe

I am So excited to be sharing this recipe with you guys today! Back when I used to work at the mall at a Jewelry store (Pandora) My Co-worker introduced me to this amazing wrap at the food court, so I just had to re-create it at home. Its definitely a unique wrap that I haven’t ever seen or tasted before and its loaded with lots of flavor, everyone is going to love these!!!

I like to serve these best when all the ingredients are still hot but you can also assemble these when the ingredients are room temp or just warm up again before serving.

Also I would love it if you would comment below and let me know what kind of wrap is your favorite to make! Enjoy it everyone :)

Now to these yummy meatballs (katleti) I don’t know about you all but I LOVE it when my oven does all the cooking for me, Nothing is easier then prepping it and throwing it into the oven, especially when you are a busy mom :) They are still just as good and juicy baked in the oven and not to mention so much healthier because you are not frying them in loads of oil!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!!!!! We sure enjoyed ours! Started celebrating 2 days earlier, first night we celebrated at our aunties house with my family and then we headed over to my parents place for our annual family sleepover! :) I come from a family of 8 kids and 3 of us are married. We have a blast at our family sleepovers :) Late night talks and games then breakfast in the morning we hangout open gifts and then have dinner ( we always keep the food out because we end up eating late again before going to sleep) I am sure all of my Russian friends understand what I mean :o We like to eat haha and then we spend another night and have breakfast together :)

Now to this super simple yet delicious recipe, the potatoes are so soft and the bacon is crispy its the perfect combination and what I love about it is that it can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as an appetizer! Now who doesn’t love such a versatile dish that takes minutes to prep and the oven does the rest of the job!? I think all of us do :)

My sweet mother in law served this for breakfast when we were visiting them in South Carolina for thanksgivingĀ  and I have already made it several times since we have been back, I love to serve it for dinner with ceaser salad and buttery garlicy- green beans on the side, will share with you how I make mine soon :)

I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas from our family to yours :)DSC_9985
