I am sure there are many recipes online. I should have clarifies myself more. I want recipes from the people who actually cooked the meals and enjoyed them. Sometimes, russian recipes seem to produce some other results, because nobody has really tested them, they are just cut and pasted from one source to another.

Potato salad with cucumbers and peas added with some dill with the mayo.
Shishkabobs are popular.
Pelmeni with butter, --basically tortellini, but everyone we met bought them frozen.
A Russian friend fixed an incredible pork butt grilled with lots of herbs and marinated in a vinegary marinade.

That, actually, sounds very delicious. I ate pelmeni in the past. The friend who made them used sour cream as a dipping sauce instead of butter sauce, is it pretty much interchangable?

Chicken Gorky

I found this a few years ago - and I'm sorry that I don't remember where -
when looking for something for a "Russian" menu that was not Beef Strogonoff. I've made it many times since:

Chicken Gorky
6 small chicken breast halves (about 3 lb.)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 ounces vodka, heated (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup feta cheese

Brown chicken in butter and olive oil with the chopped onion and garlic.
Pour heated vodka over the chicken if desired. Add salt and pepper. Remove chicken from the pan. Add the flour, tomato paste and chicken broth to the pan. Stir in the sour cream, feta cheese and parsley. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Arrange the chicken in a deep casserole dish and pour mixture over the chicken. Cook in preheated 350 oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is done to an internal temperature of 170. Serve with wild rice or noodles.

For the Russian menu, we served this with "Caviar Pie" for the appetizer,
Marinated Beets & Cabbage Salad, Russian Rye Bread, and a variation on traditional Pashka, which was quite a hit. Here's the Pashka:
Pashka
1 lb. cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 lb. butter at room temperature
1-3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup currants
1 cup chopped pecans
16 slices pound cake
Place the cream cheese in food processor and process until there are no lumps. Add the butter and process until creamy. Add sugar and vanilla to mixture and mix. Add the currants and nuts. Scrape down bowl well and mix a few more minutes. Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 4 hours minimum. Yields 16 small scoops.

Melba Sauce:
1 lb. raspberries
1/2-cup granulated sugar
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup red currant jelly
Puree fruit, sugar and jelly in blender or food processor. Add lemon juice and mix well. Strain through fine sieve into small bowl. Makes about 1-1/2 cups. Chill.
We cut out oval pieces of the pound cake with a cookie cutter and scooped the Pashka on top with an egg-shaped scoop. A teaspoon of the Melba Sauce was then drizzled on the top.

Another idea for you:
Go up to the top of your toolbar and find the "Search" option. Click on it, and it will give you the option for an "Advanced Search". Do that, and then, type in "Russian" in the search, and click on "Titles Only". Go to the bottom right and click on "Search"
It will give you about 14 pages of threads.

You can still have that CookingFanToo. Just go into those threads and post a message. It is no different from asking those same people to repost what they have already posted previously.
