I’ve been doing a lot of pondering about which recipes you all love most. (Because pondering(2) is pretty cool word; lets see how many times I can use it). In the midst of all my pondering(3) and research, I realized I could figure this out without too much pondering(4) by using Pinterest.

By the way, if you’re familiar with Pinterest, I think you’ll be pondering(5) what I’m pondering(6); this picture pretty much sums it up except I’d be wearing a purple shirt. Pinner Beware; just sayin’.

    I’ve got another idea for you to ponder. Many of us have kids, (or one day might). Kid friendly foods, lunchbox ideas (I know your son doesn’t start school for another few years though, but that will give you a chance to ponder on some ideas).
    I know we don’t want to cater to our kids’ picky eating behaviours, but sometimes I just want to whip up something easy that they can enjoy, besides Mac’n’Cheese (we’ve all done that right?)
    Another one is baby food, my youngest is 8 months old, and I don’t want to buy baby jar food (except when out and about for convenience). I just cut up a bunch of veggies, boil them, and call that a meal. But any other suggestions for simple foods will work.
    By the way, my 5 year old likes to watch your “cooking shows”, he then tries to retell me what I need to do (like for that recent bread recipe you posted). Maybe you can make up videos that shows your “little man” making a simple recipe with you, that would be cute. Reply

    Natasha,
    my co-worker introduced me to your website because I was looking to get more in touch with my cultures foods. My family came from Ukraine in the early 1900’s so a lot of our recipes have been lost over the years. I am excited to see some recipes that my grandfather talked about eating as a child and can not wait to try them out! Thank you for the amazing website I will be using this many times!!

    I agree. I don’t usually pin either. I use Pinterest, but don’t pin my own items (I just go around stealing other people’s pins). And after I pondered, I found it interesting that your most popular pins are kind of “just regular food” and not your Russian/Ukrainian specialties. That’s what drew me to your website. I’m in Ukraine now, we just adopted a 15 yr old boy and I want to know who to make some of his traditional meals (and some of the things that I’ve been eating the last few months!). Thanks for all your good work & yummy recipes! πŸ™‚ Keep it up. Oh, and obviously (I think) I would like to see more Ukrainian and Russian meals. ;0) Reply

I would like to have some ideas for when we have company over for example: how to dress up the table to make it look elegant without it being overly crowded, or how much food to be served like 5 different dishes or more or less; any fancy ways to fold napkins, when buffet style is appropriate, if it needs to be done only for big groups, etc… Do you get my point?
    I can cook, thanks to my mom and some cooking websites ;-). But I am all thumbs when it comes to presenting. I like that you post pictures especially of the finished products, it makes that drool start to form. Lol. Reply

      I personally don’t like beens but thought that this recipe was pretty good. Reply

    Your website is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. I would like to see more chicken recipes. I don’t care if it’s soup, stir-fry, etc. God bless you and your family! Reply

      Chicken is a great (not too expensive) and versatile ingredient! Thanks for your input! Reply

    Slow cooker!! Love all your recipes but I DO love my slow cooker for its convenience. Hope to see some more recipes done in this method, especially ones that don’t turn food to mush. Reply
