When the weather gets warmer my family's schedule gets busier. That means it is time to get the slow cooker out, because I don't want to be tempted to spend a week's worth of grocery money on one meal and eat twice as much food as I need to, by going out to dinner.
Most of us food bloggers are not professional photographers or chiefs. We are usually just trying to get dinner on the table and take a decent photo of what we made.
"Shchi and kasha are our food." Is a rough translation of an old Russian saying. Shchi has been part of Russian cuisine since the 9th century when cabbage was introduced to this region.
