Ah... apparently, those are considered very old-fashioned.  The more 
usual blini/blintz these days is is yeast-and-egg with wheat flour and 
cooked like a crepe.  I can't afford caviar, but they're pretty good 
filled with salmon and creme fraiche.

although my Russian cooking is probably not as good as her mother's, 
mine doesn't come with a guilt trip.  Her only regret is that I keep 
calling my varenyky pierogi.)
