Oh my gosh! I had no idea how to make this or what it was called, but I've had it before. Thank you for sharing these recipes of yours on HubPages. I used to date a Russian guy and his mom made all sorts of food that was totally different from what I grew up with and I never knew what any of it was called or how to make it.
