FREE BONUS: 5 Secrets to Be a Better Cook!

About

Hi there! My name is Natasha Kravchuk. My handsome husband, Vadim, and I started Natasha’s Kitchen in 2009 and develop recipes and recipe videos full time together.

I come from a family of fantastic cooks and I’m here to share generations of recipes that are homey, fresh, healthy, family-friendly, authentic, and  adventurous. Most importantly, our recipes taste great and you can trust that they actually work.

My Family:

My parents came to the US as refugees from Ukraine when I was 4 years old. They brought 5 tiny girls and had nothing but a stack of suitcases. They didn’t know the language, but worked hard and achieved the American dream. Watch the TV News Segment about our incredible story.

Growing up, I used to be so shy I thought no one would marry me until my husband came along and swept me off my feet (true story). I married my wonderful husband Vadim over 16 years ago. We are blessed with two children. Every recipe is thoroughly tested and approved by each of us and is often critiqued by relatives and friends. We only post the recipes we love and make over and over.

We live in Idaho, “Ida-who?” Potatoes, people, potatoes! Our family attends Life Church Boise. We strive to walk in love and live our lives by the word of God and the life of Jesus.

My Background:

We’re so thankful to be full-time foodies and recipe developers. We’re living our dream because of you and I can’t thank you enough! I draw on all of my past experiences which make me the recipe developer, video creator, photographer, writer, and business owner that I am today. We set the bar high so you can expect great recipes and videos here. God has made all of my past experiences working for my good.

The ‘Resume’:

  • Starting as a teen, I worked for 7 years as a business intern (my most valuable ‘education’).
  • Earned my bachelors degree in Business (long story)
  • Worked as a Realtor for 4 years during which I had an early mid-life crisis and cried a lot (let’s just say it wasn’t for me).
  • Second Bachelor’s degree in Nursing and worked as an RN in telemetry (shorter story, but still long).
  • Blogging since 2009

So, I’m a wife, mom, food blogger, video creator, photographer, writer, influencer, social media boss, entrepreneur, and worship leader. If I were a sandwich, I’d be a chicken bacon avocado on focaccia.

About Natasha’s Kitchen:

I started this food and family blog in 2009 as a way to share favorite recipes and events with family and friends. It has grown much larger than I could have imagined with about 1,000 recipes and about 7 Million hungry visitors per month. In March 2021, we passed 2,000,000 subscribers on Youtube and our channel is growing fast.

My goal with Natasha’s Kitchen is for you to really discover and fall in love with cooking and find many new favorite recipes your family will love. The ingredients we use are simple and easily accessible; not overly hoity-toity. My motto: if you can read (a well-written, tested and trusted recipe), you can cook.

This is a personal website and all of the recipes are tested and approved by my family. All of the photography is done by myself and I’m the one showing up in our videos. My husband edits the photos and videos (and he’s the videographer single-handedly running 3 cameras at once).

Much of the recipes I share come from my Mom and Mother-in-law, family, friends, and experience in the kitchen. I am so thankful to have such amazing people in my life who generously share their rich knowledge of cooking.

How I got Started Cooking:

To be completely honest, I wasn’t always excited about cooking. When I got married in 2003, it became a necessity – “must eat to live” and Mom wasn’t doing the cooking anymore. We had a lot of frozen meals and ate out too much in the first year of our marriage. I had a free summer (and decided I would improve my cooking skills so we could live and eat healthier.

I dove into cookbook after cookbook and plundered my mom’s recipe books. I was at the library all the time bringing home piles of cookbooks; I was hooked! I even read my mother’s cooking textbook from her college days (Mom completed her culinary program when we moved to the US). I had discovered the joy of cooking. Within a few months, my husband and I each lost weight just from cooking more at home. Now I can’t stop cooking and thinking about cooking and dreaming about cooking… I was born for this!

My recipe collection continues to grow. I love to try new recipes and will share my favorites with you. I hope you enjoy this blog and find recipes that will become your family favorites as well.

    Natasha! I have a new friend from Ukriane, Svitlana, who has been in the U.S. for five years. If you want REAL chili, try authentic Texas chili (no ground beef, no beans, just chunked up chuck or some other roast, and lots of pepper flavors. Read the history on chili, and you will find it interesting. Chuck wagon cooks would use whatever they had in the way of meat and peppers for flavoring. I can recommend several books if you are interested. But remember: there is no such thing as quick chili. We prefer it low and slow. Two days is not unusual, as we add in spice layers at different stages of the melding of flavors.

    This may be the best site I have ever found for foodies. I love everything about it. Home cooked meals, easy to do, tons of variety. And focused on the home cook. Can’t wait for your cook book, but don’t fret. The blog and videos rock! If you have not done so already, please ask us for “problem” recipes that we love but have not mastered, or “how to” recipes that we want to do but don’t know how to do them. I realize that you can’t accommodate everyone, but even a 10% response will be well received. You and your husband are wonderfully situated for happiness; God bless you all.

      September 16, 2021

      Hi Maya, I cook everything in a conventional oven (not convection) unless I’m using an air fryer or the broil setting on an oven, but I will always specify that. Most recipes are written for conventional ovens so you wouldn’t have to make conversations for convection, but newer ovens now have both functions so that could be a good investment if you want to use both functions. You can see all of our appliances in our kitchen tour.

    Hi Natasha,

    I just bought 12 lovely heads of garlic and have been told to temporarily stay away from them, onions, etc. Is there a way to preserve garlic safely so none of the flavour is lost? I would really like a recipe to follow…Cheers!

      September 16, 2021

      Hi Jo, there are a few ways. I don’t have a specific recipe to follow, but you can chop garlic, wrap it tightly in a plastic freezer bag or plastic wrap, and freeze. To use, grate or break off the amount needed. You can also place garlic bulbs or cloves (peeled or unpeeled) in a freezer bag or container and freeze; remove cloves as needed. I’m sure there are other methods out there. I recommend a Google search.

    Natasha, I want to share with you a discovery I made today. I took your recipe for Meatloaf with the Best Glaze and your Creamy Mashed Potato recipe and combined them. I cooked the meatloaf for an hour. I did not mix up the glaze, instead I made the mashed potatoes while the meatloaf cooked. At the end of the hour I took the meatloaf out of the oven covered it with your mashed potatoes and sprinkled cheese on top. Returned to the oven for 15 more minutes. It was absolutely delicious this way. I more than likely will not go back to the glaze on top anymore. I got raves from my family. You might want to try this and see what you think and possibly add this as one of your dishes (because they both are your recipes with the exception of the cheese, but that is okay).

I fell for it, unfortunately. But I managed to cancel what I signed up for, so no harm done. I just wanted you to know so you could stop others from falling for it.

        Hi, I made it yesterday and I’ll say that the cabbage version is much, much tastier. I used gruyere cheese on half of it and X-sharp cheddar on the other. Without the cheese, it would have been quite bland. So, I’ll stay with the cabbage version.

    Hi Natasha!!
    First, I love Idaho! I lived in Rexburg for 2 years. My husband had a partial glossectomy this week. He wants egg drop soup. He found a recipe but I know your recipes are great!! If you have a recipe, I would appreciate if you post it. He is an excellent cook and loves your recipes too!
    Thank you, Margo

    Hi Natasha ~ I am so glad I discovered your videos. You have become my “Go-To” person when I need a recipe. My husband has been asking me for Beef Stroganoff so that’s what’s for dinner tomorrow.
    Your recipes are so easy to follow and, as an almost 50 year young bride, you have restored my enthusiasm in preparing nice meals.
    My almost four year old grandson has requested a Mario’s Brothers birthday cake with crushed Oreo cookies through the cake mix.
    Have you ever made something like that? Any tips would be greatly appreciated❣
    God Bless you and your lovely family
    Warm regards

    In this recipe you have listed red enchilada sauce in the ingredients that will be used. Yet no where in the instructions does it say where to use it. I’m guessing that is a mistake? Pictures don’t show red sauce either. Making these tomorrow.

      Hi Tari! I’m assuming you’re inquiring about our Chicken Enchiladas Recipe? You can find the enchilada sauce in step #2. “In a bowl beat the cream cheese. Add the sour cream, green chilis, enchiladas sauce, 1/4 tsp salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika; beat until combined.” I hope this is helpful!

I just love your presentation, sense of humor (very close to mine:-) and your never ending energy, passion and love you adding in every single recipe. You always make my day:-) I’ve tried some meals and it was so satisfying. It is the pity some ingredients you use are not available in Czech Rep., so I have to look for substitutes and I am sure the taste is different from the original:-( Measuring is also little bit difficult since we measure everyting in grams:-) If I could ask for extra video I would be gratful for ideas for pre-prep meal (not already cooked) you can freeze and it is handy when you do not have much time you just dig in your freezer and pop it to the oven. Thanks!

    72 year old novice baker. I’ve tried baking some of your easier recipes and have succeeded with most. Have been looking for your 🍎 Apple dumpling recipe. Please show me how to make those. Love all your videos.

    Love your recipe for lemon bars. I was wondering if you ever tried to make the bars with orange curd filling? I have purchased English orange curd in jars before. It was very similar in texture to the filling in the lemon bars. I figured it was made the same way as the lemon. I would be very happy to get a orange bar recipe. Thank you for all the good recipes. My family uses a lot of them from the Natasha‘s website.

      Hi Zook, I have not experimented with orange curd, although the lemon can be substituted with orange.

      Hi Deborah, I honestly haven’t tried that yet to advise. If you do an experiment, please share with me how it goes.

    Hi Natasha,
    I love watching your instructional videos. Very Informative.
    Question: When making coconut shrimp, you used the raw shrimp but how would frozen cooked shrimp already prepped work? Thank you

      Hi Dennis, this recipe would not work well with pre-cooked shrimp, but frozen raw shrimp, (thawed according to package instructions) would be a good choice.

    My wife loves your website and recipes. She also loves having an Amazon Alexa in her kitchen. Have you considered an app for Alexa for your recipes? You could do a subscription model to help cover the costs of developing the app and managing it. I am sure she would pay a reasonable amount for it as would others.

      Hi Mike, thank you for the suggestion. We don’t have any plans for an app currently, but I will keep that in mind.
