Syrniki

This is one of my favorites from Russia, albeit in an American incarnation - normally, in Russia and Ukraine anyways, these would be made with творог ("tvoroh" or farmer's cheese), not cottage cheese. To each their own though!

Ruz be T'ibs

T'ibs is an old favorite of mine from Ethiopia and since I still have a bunch of berbere I decided to try my hand at making t'ibs before Lent arrives. (Actually, before Monday arrives - in the Byzantine Rite we stop eating meat a week before Lent actually begins.)
