About

Hi there! My name is Natasha Kravchuk. My handsome husband, Vadim and I happily run this blog together full time (more on that below).

I come from a family of fantastic cooks and I’m here to share generations of Ukrainian-American recipes that are homey, fresh, healthy, family-friendly, sometimes bizarre and occasionally naughty. We also have unique and decadent desserts from Europe and around the world.

My family:

I used to be so shy I thought no one would marry me until my husband came along and swept me off my feet. I married (up) to my wonderful husband Vadim over 15 years ago. We are blessed with two littles. Every recipe is tasted and approved by each of us and is often critiqued by relatives and friends. We live in Idaho, “Ida-who?” Potatoes, people. Potatoes! Our family attends Life Church in Boise. We strive to walk in love and live our lives by the word of God and life of Jesus.

My background:

We’re so thankful to be full time foodies. We’re living our dream because of you and I can’t thank you enough!  I feel like God has worked all of my experiences together like a puzzle to bring me to this point. It took me a little bit to discover what God had in mind for me. I thank God for everything, without Whom I would be merely human (and that would suck).

Here’s the rundown:

*Starting as a teen, I worked for 7 years as a business intern
*I have a bachelors degree in Business (long story)
*I worked as a Realtor for 4 years during which I had an early mid-life crisis and cried alot (lets just say it wasn’t for me).
*I also have a Bachelors degree in Nursing (shorter story, but still long).

So, I’m  a wife, mom, food blogger, entrepreneur, worship leader, and nurse. 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 well over 900 recipes and about 5 Million hungry visitors per month.

My goal for this site is for people around the world to really discover and fall in love with cooking (particularly Russian and Ukrainian food). I know its a big dream, but why would someone want a small dream?

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 knowledge I share comes from my Mama, Mama-in-law and family members. I am so thankful to have such amazing people in my life who generously share their rich knowledge of Cooking.

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

natashas-kitchen-family

How I got Started Cooking:

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 (pizza, corn dogs; #ewe #ewe #ewe) – and we 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 about 5 pounds 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!

Culture and Background

My family moved from Ukraine to the US as refugees when I was 4 years old. I grew up eating authentic Ukrainian and Russian food. No doubt many of my recipes will have a Slavic origin and influence. I do love Russian/Ukrainian food and I hope the recipes on this site invoke the same love in you for the rich variety of foods of the Slavic culture.

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.

Thank you for visiting my recipe blog, commenting, pinning and sharing the recipes with your peeps. And come back soon!

If you would like your recipe featured on this site, email it to me by clicking here (warning: spammers will get hit in the face with unripe avocados).

Please note: This blog includes only my own opinions and is not professional advice. It is not intended to be a diet plan, although I try to post healthy-ish recipes, please talk to your Dr. for medical or dietary advice. I am not liable if you eat too many piroshki.

    Hey Natasha!
    I didn’t really get into cooking until a few weeks ago when I wanted to find a new hobby and a way to distract myself.

    I started looking through your videos, a bit reluctant as it stemmed from a lack of self confidence and I wondered, could I really do this? Anyway, the first recipe I have made is the Chicken Fettucine Alfredo and I have already made it 3 times, the 3rd time without the help of my mum! It was a great success.

    Then I made it with Shrimp which I absolutely loved! I made a couple of mistakes like seasoning and the amount of cream I shouldve put in but hey, mistakes happen right?

    Then I made a burger from your video which was suprisingly really easy and delicious.

    The next on my list is Spaghetti Meatballs which I am excited about too.

    Every week, I save up a little of my money to put towards ingredients for a new dish, usually from your videos. It brings a sense of excitement and responsibility knowing that I am saving money towards a hobby of mine.

    Anyway, thank you for your recipes and you seem like you have a beautiful family

    This is very interesting! But could be you please tell me how I might figure out the sodium mg on your Cowboy caviar! It sounds great! Ive recently been diagnosed with CHF heart disease & wonder how to break this down per serving. How much could you eat? Thank you if you can shed light on this subject. Good day!😊 Reply

    • Natasha
      July 5, 2019

      Hi Roseann, there are 10 servings in that recipe so the recipe card is per serving. The sodium mg listed there are per serving. You could go a little lighter on salt or omit the additional salt if you are watching your salt intake and then just add Italian dressing to taste – start with half the amount called for and see if it is to your liking. That should significantly cut down the sodium. You can add more lemon juice to compensate for missing salt flavor. Reply

    Waouhh… I’m so happy to find this page. I’m a man, and always wanted to learn cooking for me and to do some surprises to my honey.

    When making your Strawberry sauce are you able to freeze it to use at a later time. Reply

    • Natasha
      June 27, 2019

      Hi Maria, I haven’t tried but I think that should work fine since it is just strawberries and sugar. Keep in mind though, as with any frozen strawberry sauce, the color won’t be as vibrant as it is fresh once it’s thawed. Reply

    I’ve been following your FB page for a year or so now. Your recipes and cooking is great. That’s not why I searched a way to communicate with you. I hope you and your husband read this.

    You are what is wholesome and beautiful about America and life in general Natasha. I’m a great chef myself, but when I watch your video posts I’m enamored at the beauty of you. It’s not just me, my 2 daughters as well. But here me out because you need to know this; you are gorgeous and every little thing you do on your videos is so cute and so sweet it makes the food an afterthought. I find myself watching your videos just to see how much cuter you can be, and I’m never disappointed. Your husband is awesome too and obviously very handsome to have married you. What a great family and great American dream story. I can say enough about how every word or every look you give into the camera is as wholesome and beautiful as the plains of Texas. You are an American gem, you are Americas sweetheart. Everyone loves you. You will get your own show one day soon on network TV. America loves you. Reply

    Hello Natasha, I have tried your Strawberry Cake (in springform pan) and it was a HIT for our daughters 21st Birthday! I am wondering can I bake it and take it camping. Maybe make cup cakes with the recipe? I know it would be a big hit and just wanted your thoughts. Would it be ok? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      June 11, 2019

      Hi Nannette, It is best on day one and should be refrigerated if not eaten the same day. I have enjoyed this up to 3 days in the fridge after making it but it has never lasted longer than that. If you have a camper with a fridge or a cold cooler that’s dry that would help. I haven’t tested that a cupcake so I cannot advise but if you experiment, let me know how you liked the recipe Reply

    First of All, I was inspired when I visited your Hubby’s Instagram page and I saw a title ‘Saved by Grace’ and also its tells on his pictures and comportment.

    I stumbled on your Youtube videos and was attracted to the clarity in presentation of your recipes.
    I am an entrepreneurial Journalist and I look for a second skills in cooking over here in USA. and I hope to stick to your videos to learn how to cook various popular dishes in New York.

    Your family is a Christlike model for this generation of rising divorce rates in the US.

    I pray God keeps your family stronger and ready for his Kingdom Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    You used to have a recipe for a classic Ukrainian borscht on your website back in September 2018 which is slightly different from what you currently have. It had cabbages in it and you cooked beets before cutting them. I really enjoyed making that borscht and would love to try it again. Can you please share that other recipe with me? I really appreciate it! Reply

    I love your cooking and you are amazing Natasha. I love baking and cooking too as it is one of my hobbies. One of my favorite ingredients to cook with is fish sauce, which I put in almost everything including desserts. You should maybe try cooking with Red Boat Fish Sauce, which is the best one I ever use for cooking, it adds a really good flavor to almost anything without tasting fishy at all. I have experimented with incorporating umami rich ingredients in desserts. Looking forward to see more videos, you deserve to be on a cooking show.

    Hello Natasha, I love your cooking channel and I am a huge fan of yours. You have such a wonderful and sweet personality. You really make cooking look so easy and fun! However, I also take notice of the cookware you use on your channel. Just the other day, I bought a Le Creuset Dutch Oven and I made your famous beef stew. I was very delicious. Everything you make is great. I love food and cooking it. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent in the kitchen. I hope to be as great as you on day! I love your story and you have a beautiful family. I hope to see more of your amazing wonders in the kitchen. God bless! Reply

    You should try out for the “Next Food Network Star” on the FOOD Channel. You are so polished in front of the camera! I can so see you on TV! You have a great story and personality. Have you tried to get on that show? BTW Love your jello pretzel salad and the apricot salmon (usually my wife makes it for me but I did it myself for lunch today since she was at work). It’s so delicious. Reply

    Hi Natasha.
    What can I substitute the Tabasco sauce with in your lamb chop recipe? Reply

    • Natasha
      March 18, 2019

      Hi Joanne, you can just leave it out and add more seasoning to taste since the Tabasco does have a fair amount of salt in it. Reply

    This morning was the first time I’d read your background; and very happy to learn that you credit Jesus for your success.

    I know that I will now follow you and your family. That is right after I make your Sponge Cake recipe.

    Perhaps I was also lead to the site by my Lord and Savior.

    Hello Natasha! How fun to come across your website in my search for Pad Thai recipe. I found it! And, then, got caught up in your little videos. I have been here for about an hour just browsing your site! My husband and I sponsored a Ukranian family of 8, two parents and six kids, thirty years ago from the former Soviet Union. We were also raising a family of 6 kids the same ages. We welcomed our guest family to live with us in our home for six weeks until we could find their own housing. That meant 4 adults and 12 children – under one roof with only one bathroom! Yes, it is a cherished memory! The other mom and I shared the kitchen as she taught me to make bortsche and other soups, while eating lots of bread. But, once we found a permanent home for our immigrant family, we were welcomed to their home for more delicious meals. I’m loving your site and am eager to revisit some of those recipes we enjoyed so many years ago. Reply

      Hi Isabel, I have not tried that particular wine but I think it would work. One of my readers wrote the following review: “I used a Cabernet Sauvignon for the wine, and WOW. It came out AMAZING. We really enjoyed it, and this will be my go-to recipe for beef stew from now on! I even sent the recipe to my mother to try 🙂” Reply

    Thank you Natasha for sharing your life letting us see just a little piece of your passion for cooking for family and for the love of Christ Jesus I am a disabled woman and I used to cook a lot for my family big meals but since my injuries I’m no longer to stand very long at a time so my big meals have actually turned into what you call ew ew ew!!!! Frozen pizza corn dogs and lots of sandwiches!!! So tomorrow we are having a big dinner at church to celebrate our seventh year in our new location that we’ve been at so I wanted to make something special but easy and good (and not frozen lol!!!!) So the Lord put on my heart to do a simple stir fry everybody loves a stir fry so I Googled easy stir fry recipe and you popped up I scrolled down and I looked at the recipe and the picture made my mouth water the ingredients I had most of them on hand the only thing that I have to go to the store for that I don’t already have for this recipe is a zucchini so I thank you young lady for this scrumptious meal I hope you and your family have a blessed and fulfilled Saturday I’ll take a picture when I’m done cooking it I’m sure everyone at church is going to just love it thank you so much Reply

    Luv your videos Natasha and share with family and friends, some of whom are of Ukrainian extraction. Herewith a rendition of my own version of foodiness:

    I probably rendered myself persona non grata in New York City and Miami Beach this morning. On the other hand I would probably be welcomed to the United States Army Basic Culinary Training Division – Quartermaster Corps, or as we knew it in my time: Mess Hall Cooks School. I made SOS this morning using chopped deli sliced Pastrami. It was good, but it will probably take years for a convention of Talmudic Scholars to issue judgment.

    Growing up during WW-2, meat for domestic tables was scarce, so the occasional jar of dried chipped beef had to be extended with gravy and toast to feed a household of civilians. The typical recipe is a Dixie tradition and is rolled out about every ten years in Southern Living Magazine. I have done some experiments with the formula recently and made White (sliced chicken breast) as a companion to the old red chipped beef. The white version is deeeeelicious! Pastrami, being my latest, I will name “South Beach.” I invite y’all to make some at home and offer your opinion. This old veteran got a belly full of SOS (hamburger) in Army Mess Halls, so I never stirred a pan at home and never will. BTW, I use corn starch for my thickener, instead of flour, so take heart gluten free advocates.

    Mississippi native Craig Claiborne provided the bridge between north and southern cuisine when he became the food editor at the New York Times, years ago. Lemon cake was the charm, but his capacity for variety of nutrients and tastes became legendary and filled book shelves in many a kitchen. Another famous accommodation was accomplished when Delta Air Lines acquired Northeast Airlines and successfully combined corn pone and Matzos. Food is the universal uniter! Reply
