This broccoli soup made of chicken breast and vegetables. I added the ranch dressing at the end, which brought the unique flavor to the soup.

Add carrot, ginger, couple of bay leaves and half of onion.
Reduce heat and simmer for about  30-40 minutes, or until chicken is tender.

Discard bay leaves. Serve soup hot with toast of bread or croutons. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Welcome To My Blog!

Hi, my name is Olga.  I would like to welcome you to my site.

I created it first of all, to save my family’s recipes and then to share them with my friends and those who have tasted some Russian/Ukrainian food and liked it. But I also would like to introduce it to those who haven’t yet, but would like to.

I will try to keep my recipes simple, but there are few that might require more prep time or ingredients for preparation. You will also find some of my family’s favorite American recipes here and other international cuisines.

I thank you for visiting my site. I hope you will fall in love with Russian/Ukrainian food and will come back again.
