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.

Russian Layered Harvest Salad Recipe


I know i have been bad with posting new recipes this last month.. my uncle passed away so its been really tough for our family… Thank you for your patience.

If you guys have never tried this salad I am super excited for you to do so! Its definitely a unique salad that is delicious and different than your typical salads. This salad is very similar to  “shuba” but it doesn’t have the fish in it, its only vegetables. (not a fan of fish in my salads ;) Also my mom made it this way as long as i can remember :)

If your not Russian this salad probably looks very interesting to you but i promise you guys its fantastic, its absolutely delicious. Make sure you top it off with pomegranate it gives this salad a nice crunch and flavor to it.. Its a must for me :)

This salad works very well for potluck parties or just dinner at home and even with just a slice of bread! mmmmmmmmm :) Read more…

Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Loaded Mashed Potatoes

A couple evenings ago I was prepping mashed potatoes and a salad for BBQ, and while making the mashed potatoes I was thinking how can I “spice” them up and I got a great idea! Why not take all the ingredients for a loaded baked potatoes and add  to the mashed potatoes!!!!

So I hope you guys enjoy my little creation! I made them two nights in a row already and we are loving it! They go so well with BBQ chicken (I will be posting my husbands awesome recipe next week)

Olivye – Russian Potato Salad

Olivye - Russian Potato Salad

Iv tried many different potatoes salad and i gotta admit this is the best! This potato salad is definitely a popular  and traditional russian salad. Even though everyone might have their own way of making it, I’m excited to share my families recipe with you.

Don’t be intimidated by all the cutting vegetables small, once you get the hang of it, it takes quite fast, and also is so worth. This salad lasts quite some time, as long as you just mix in the mayo and salt before serving it will stay fresh up to a week. I only mix in how much salad we will eat that time.

Also you can add in diced bolongy, i personally like it without meat! Enjoy:) Read more…
