Our Ukrainian Family Thanksgiving 2010
This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.
I hope you had a blessed and wonderful thanksgiving. We had dinner at my parents house this year, potluck-style. Several families got together and boy did we feast!
God is soo good and I have much to be thankful for. Many of the “traditional” dishes you may remember from my photos last year. There were some scrumptious new recipes like my aunt’s sweet roulades.
This year I finally got recipes for some of my favorites, including the cherry cheesecake, pasta/egg/cauliflower salad, hren and that awesome beef. I’ll be sharing those recipes with all of you. I’d love to know how you celebrated this Thanksgiving.

Shto za bliudo v sinej kastriulke?
I didn’t make that one but I believe it was beef, very similar to this recipe, but the beef was cut before putting it in the oven so it probably cooked faster: https://natashaskitchen.com/2013/12/09/beef-and-mushroom-pot-roast-a-slow-cooker-recipe/

Natasha! Your recipes are amazing, thank you for sharing. I just have one request. Could you be so kind as to post the recipe for these rolls. i have been looking for the recipe for a long time. Thank you:)
HI Sveta, I don’t have much time to cook this semester, but I will add it to my to-do list. My aunt made those 🙂
I saw somewhere, which now i can’t seem to find.. ribs.. there was a picture of it but i can’t seem to find the recipe. Can you please guide me where i can find your recipe for the ribs? thank you sooo much! =)
I don’t have a recipe for ribs. I might have had a picture from last thanksgiving of ribs but I dont’ have a recipe. I should have a recipe for ribs! Thanks for the idea!
Will try. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Wow!Everything looks delicious. I appreciate the great photos. Makes me hungry. I hosted Thanksgiving this year with family and friends. We ate the traditional “american menu”. I am Ukrainian and in the past, on occasion, have attended the church’s pot luck (ukie-style) but my kids prefer the traditional at home meal. We ate turkey,ham,dressing,mashed potatoes,gravy,cranberries,greenbean casserole,corn casserole,sweet potatoes,bruusel sprouts with shallots,cauliflower carrots with a garlic herb butter, corn,rolls and salad. And for dessert we had fruit salad,taffy apple salad, pies, and mother’s pumpkin cheesecake torte. I look forward to Christmas. I would like some ideas for canapes. I wanted to make a variety for news years. If you could help me out I would appreciate it. Thanks.
Canapes huh? I have 1 recipe posted for a spread. You can use that spread for loads of different toppings. We love love the pieces of smoked salmon on top (from Costco – its pricey, but soo good!) You can also put a slice of cucumber and and a thin slice of any kind of Russian kielbasa next to each other. Another good spread: 8oz pkg cream cheese, 1/2 to 1 stick butter, softened, 1 cup finely grated mozarella cheese and 2+ garlic cloves minced (add garlic to taste). Mix it all up and voila! YOu can also make the spread from the canapes that I have posted with laughing cow cheese and finely grate some cooked egg over the top. My aunt made this for Thanksgiving. Its easy, but still looks fancy. Hope that helps!
Mercy! Looks wonderful! I want to try all of it.
We kept it very low key this year. I made biscuits, cornbread, and gravy for breakfast. And coffee.
Mid-afternoon we had baked garnet yams, green beans with some bacon and a chicken cream sauce, corn bread, stuffing, and a spice cake for dessert. More coffee.
That sounds wonderful and very cozy. I’m now craving everything on your list!
LOL.. Amazing, isn’t it? You see/read what someone else made it it sounds good. I am looking forward to the recipes that go along with your photos. Or at least the names of the dishes so I can try searching for them.
I made some hush puppies tonight. About 2/3 cup each cornmeal and self rising flour, 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning, 2 tsp baking powder, a three fingered pinch of kosher salt, and about 3/4 cup of milk with 1 TBS of cider vinegar to clabber it (or use buttermilk – I was out). Drop by scant teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil. Fry till golden brown and delicious. Makes about 20.
Maybe hit them with a touch of salt before serving.
Those sound great – something I’ve never tried before. Thanks for the recipe!
OOPS! Forgot to mention the 1/2 to 1 tsp. of grated onion. Gotta be grated, not minced. Something about the way grating releases the oils and juices from the onion.
