Farmers Cheese Muffins
baking • breakfast • easy • healthy
I used tvorog bought at a Russian market, but farmers cheese will also do. These two products are very similar in texture and taste. One just have to pay attention what farmers cheese it is: if it's salted no more salt is needed.

Lazy Ravioli with Cheese
quick • easy
Well, something simple with minimum cooking. I happened to have a package of farmers cheese in the fridge, and something lazy came to mind. I have omitted the most time-consuming and boring part of making ravioli, that is making them per se.

Russian traditional • breakfast • holiday • dessert
May Peace, Love and Prosperity follow you at all times. I love Easter: winter with its snow aggravation is behind, the sun shines more, and people look happier. Today we had a lovely Easter branch with painted eggs, buns, and a variation of no-bake cheese cake Russian style that is traditionally prepared at Easter.

Farmers Cheese Pancakes (Syrniki)
Russian traditional • breakfast • vegetarian
These delightful tender pancakes make a perfect summer breakfast, especially if one has fresh berries for garnish. Syrniki ( syr means cheese in Russian) is a traditional Russian and Slavic dish made of tvorog. Tvorog (also quark, topfen , twarog , tvaroh ) is curd that is similar to cottage cheese and farmers cheese, but is thicker and drier, it is very well strained and whey is almost absent in it.
