22  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / TARDIS - amigurumi and keychain on: May 17, 2010 11:49:37 AM
I long ago wishes to make some Doctor Who stuff, and ta-da! Smiley

My amigurumi TARDIS. I LOVE it! Smiley

And BAD WOLF keychain. It's curve, cause it's incidental: it's unsuccessful detail of TARDIS. Because you first have to devise the scheme, and only then start crochet Smiley

This keychain on my bag, I think I'll use it this way Smiley

Now I'm the happiest girl in the world! Cheesy

26  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Russian cuisine at Craftster! “Beef stroganoff” tutorial with pics on: April 09, 2010 01:50:09 PM
I'm really happy you are interested in Russian cuisine! Smiley I want to tell you the recipe of one classic dish.

"Beef stroganoff" is one of the most famous dishes of Russian cuisine, this is very tasty and very simple to cook. It was invent in XIX century for earl Stroganoff and does not lose its popularity. There are many variants of this dish, this one is my favorite: my mom cooks this way.

You need:
Beef – 400gr (I buy already cut)
Onion – 1piece (if you want, I don’t add it)
Sour cream – 300gr
Salt, pepper, spices you like (I use dried dill, parsley, garlic and oregano)

Cut the beef to long thin strips across fibers. Roast it with the small amount of oil (if you use onion, add it) – about 15 minutes, it have to become grey inside and outside.

Add sour cream, salt, pepper and spices, mix it.

Reduce heat and cook it 15 minutes more.

That’s all! The best garnishes are rice, buckwheat, fried potatoes with tomatoes or pasta. Enjoy! Smiley
27  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Russian cuisine at Crafster! “Shakhtyorsky” soup tutorial with pics on: April 04, 2010 09:53:27 AM
Hi everybody!
I thought (and you confirmed) Russian cuisine may be interesting for you. So, I decided to write few posts, and this one is the first.

(It’s my first tutorial, and first try to write a recipe in English. Please, correct all my mistakes!)

We will cook a “Shakhtyorsky” soup. This is not Russian but USSR cuisine. This dish has a very interesting history: in 50s in Siberia a secret underground military facility was building; it was very cold and frosty, so kitchener have to cook very nourishing, heating and cheap dish for builders (cause the facility was underground they were in jest  called “colliers” - “shakhtyor” in Russian). And kitchener invent this soup. We like it! Smiley

You need:
Onion – 1 large (or half of a giant one Smiley )
Carrot – 1 large
Potatoes – 500-700gr, as you wish
Half-smoked sausage (like Pepperoni) – 200-300gr
Vegetable oil (sunflower for original recipe, but I prefer olive)
Buckwheat – 3-4Tbsp (It’s the most important! I know it’s hard to find it in your countries. If there is no Russian food shop near your house, you can use corn grits, but I recommend to try to find a buckwheat).
Salt, pepper, laurel,  green onion, dill, parsley, garlic – I used dried ones.

So, let’s begin.
Peel and cut the carrot. You can use the grater, but I like this variant more.

Cut the onion.

Fry onion and carrot with oil and all spices (except the salt). This mixture called “pojarka” Smiley

Until your pojarka is frying, peel potatoes and cut it.

Boil 3-3,5 litres of water. Add salt, potatoes and buckwheat there and cook it about 15 minutes. If you use corn grits, cook it about 20-25 minutes, and only then add potatoes and cook 15 minutes else. Cut the sausage until it is cooking.

Add sausage, pojarka and laurel to the casserole and cook soup in 2-3 minutes.

That’s all! Now turn on Beatles – Back To USSR and enjoy your “Shakhtyorsky” soup. I hope you will like it Smiley

Please, write if you cook it Smiley
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My aviator's helmet on: March 23, 2010 07:12:16 AM
Cause i'm from Russia, i have to have few hats - very warm for winter, and light for autumn and spring. It's difficult for me, because my appearance is peculiar, and i wear glasses, so most of hats make me ugly. Only one model makes me pretty: it's model "aviator's helmet", First World War style, yes.

So, i decided to make realistic helmet. Ta-da!

Side view:

And my cool crocheted glasses:

Now i'm Amelia Mary Earhart or Raymonde de Laroche - i don't know yet:)
