Cheese Balls

These remind me of miniature Colombian Bunuelos, except they are baked, not fried. Russians traditionally serve them at Breakfast or Lunch.

Southern Vegetable Stew - Russia

This stew is baked in individual crocks in the oven.  I suppose it could also be done in a crockpot, but I really like the way it turns out individually.
