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 experience 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 work 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 April 2020, we passed 1,000,000 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.

    Hi there,
    I love your recipes, specially the strawberry and apple pies that have become our new favorites ( cooked them with my kids).

    One comment though, recently I have started seeing your recipes in youtube where the title/comments have been “automatically translated” and, I have to tell you, the translations are so bad it’s making them unreadable.

    To make things worst, YouTube does not allow viewers to choose the language you want to see the title & comment so you are going to lose viewers because they cannot understand a thing and they cannot change it.
    The official YouTube answer says that the translations are added and verified by the content provider so we have no choice as users.

    Please, it’s better to have the title and main comment in english than have those atrocius translations.

    Thank you and take care!

      Hi Daniel, thanks for that feedback. Youtube does the translations automatically with their settings and it’s a computer translating. I wish they had a better system. We pay for and upload captions for all of our videos but youtube does the translating. We figured allowing youtube to do it was better than no translation at all.

        Natasha – I was so intimidated by cooking, that I Iiterally took 3 of the 4 burners out of my stove and covered the holes with cutting boards, because I just couldn’t even master dishes cooked in even ONE pan. I actually have a cutting board that fits over the remaining burner too (that one’s just for more space). Your video popped up one night on my YouTube for the Chicken Italian roll-ups and I thought, “Why couldn’t I handle this?” You make cooking look like so much fun, not so serious and I thought maybe I coudl try that one as a true ‘reach’ for me. I did over-cook it just a tiny bit, but I know what I did wrong. Thanks for the courage to try, with your humor and whimsy in the kitchen – I have the lasagna rollups now too and they turned out great. This is a perfect channel for me!!

    I am from Tallmadge, Ohio. 64 years old and love watching your videos and have tried quite a few. I have a lot of delicious recipes, all that I have received from other great cooks. We have always cooked mostly at home. We have raised 4 children and have 8 grandchildren 2 of which are great grandchildren. It’s truly all about about family and God and nothing brings a family together better then good food, Holidays, Birthdays picnics, Graduations, weddings and even funerals (dinner). I love to sew , garden, canning , make jelly, boating and camping. I still work full time and loved the diversity of people I have worked with, of my 2 previous jobs which brought many foods from many other counties to work parties (Buffet style).I have watched all the cooking show great cooks and can hardly throw a magazine away that has great recipes in it. I can easily put a meal together with a half of head of cabbage and the remainder of what is left of veggies in the fridge plus whatever meat has to be cooked or it will go to waste. OH yeah, I am also a Realtor and worked with now many people, from many countries. I am following you and so enjoy watching! I really enjoyed reading about you and your family. Thank You.

    As for your Banana Bread I had the same exact recipe for years, which my 3 sons married, makes them too for grandkids’ snack in their lunch box!..
    Keep up the great job and videos.

    Hi Natasha,
    Love your cooking & baking videos. The chocolate chip cookies recipe you say on the video that you put baking power and on the print recipe it says bakibg soda. What is the correct ingredient that we put in?

      Hi Sylvia, we have since updated the recipe to be 1 tsp baking soda because it gave us better results. It works with both but we loved them more with baking soda. We made a notation in the video but there is no way to re-record any portion of a posted video.

    Hi Natasha,

    I watch you from a far, Bermuda. It’s a beautiful island that you will need to visit some day.

    Your recipes are very interesting and seem easy to follow – I must admit I haven’t tried any yet. But, I have saved a few. One is your New York cheesecake. Do you have a cheesecake using whipping cream instead of sour cream? I hear it’s a light and delicious recipe to try.

    Also, on another note. I saved your kitchen tour video. It’s absolutely beautiful. My husband and I bought a house that will need upgrading in the near future. I’d love to know who designed your kitchen – if you can share??

    I’m writing too much. I look forward to hearing whether you have a cheesecake recipe using whipping cream.

I was kinda sold on it anyway as soon as I discovered it because of what your son said about it looking like the cake in the Matilda movie! It’s now written down in my recipe book at The Matilda cake. I made it for my first anniversary with my boyfriend. He loved it! I tried to eat a slice all to myself but my boyfriend ended up eating half of it. Maybe tomorrow lol! We have away some and still have half left. Yummy!

    Hi Natasha,
    I love your blog. I’m not the best cook or the best baker, but I’m learning a lot in this downtime and especially with your blog and videos. So, thank you! I have a question. I’ve tried making your Tres Leches Cake (I was feeling adventurous LOL) and I think I may have overbeat the egg yolks. The reason I think this is bc the consistency on the yellow batter was more runny than what I saw in your video. I pooped it in the oven anyway; it’s in there now actually. But, what I wanted to ask was: Would the whipping time differ since I use a different mixer? I timed it and the consistency looked about right at 1.5 minutes but I kept whipping bc the video says abt 2 minutes. I’d appreciate any thoughts. And thanks again for your blog and your videos. I do feel like they’re helping my “chef” game LOL.

      Hi, if whisking by hand, you would want to beat longer. Some mixers aren’t as high powered as others. For example, when I beat my sponge cake in my stand mixer, it is more efficient than an electric hand mixer so I always add a few minutes of mixing time to it.

I was honorably discharged last year and have been using your recipes to eat healthy and hearty with my friends, family, and girlfriend.

    Hi…I was wondering if there was a way to print your recipes. I’m a senior citizen and can’t figure out how to do it without the ads.
    I worked in marketing for Home Depot for years and think you should make a large recipe card for each of your recipes. Charge a monthly charge to receive them. I’m sure I’m not the only person who would subscribe.

    Hi – I have had a lot of success with many of your recipes and I will always choose one of yours over another food blogger. I have a question on your Pizza Dough recipe. Your instructions say to cook the pizza at 550F. I’m not sure how to do this as no home oven that I’ve ever owned would allow a setting over 500. Help? (I am a failed home pizza maker; the crust is never quite as good as the restaurant.)

    Reply

    • Natasha
      April 28, 2020

      Hi Alexa, the pizza will still work if you set it to 500 if that is what your pizza stone requires. Just keep an eye on it and probably bake 10-11 or maybe 12 minutes.

Since the closing of our state I have made many of your recipes. Each one of them have come out great. I’ve even sent the recipes to my daughter who lives in Vegas. It’s very scary not being able to go and see your child and hoping she is safe. But your videos and recipes have been a great way to stay connected.
    I even sent her the video of your house tour because they are having their home built now.

I have a special needs son and he just sits and eats like 9 of them at a sitting, they rarely last for more then 2 -3 days and that just him and I eating them.

I worked as a line cook for years, and now disabled. I stopped cooking and writing music and doing art for a long time. I have been watching your videos all day!! it gave me a little “spark’ again. Lately cooking again helps me focus on positivity, which brings me to the aura of light and energy you put in your videos. That helps too! Makes me smile and feel happy. Thank you!

    I have been following you for awhile and have had great success with your recipes! But when I read your “About” I liked your even more. Always happy to see someone give God the glory! Keep up the hard work and may the good Lord continue to bless you!

      I agree completely with Amanda. As a total stranger, I would also like to acknowledge that I was happy to continue to use Natasha’s kitchen recipes in my home after seeing that you have given God all the glory. Thank you for your encouragement and witness!

    Hi Natasha, I happen to see your video on brownie and would like to try making. Unfortunately there is only the ingredients needed without the measurements/quantity for each ingredient. Could you share please?

    Hi Natasha

    I live your recipes and videos. I’m from the UK.
    I recently saw you use the Instant Pot Duo for one of your recipes and was very intrigued by it. I read up about it and added it to my Amazon Wishlist. In March, My brother and his lovely wife bought it for me as a gift. I’m so excited to start using it.
    I was wondering whether you will be doing more recipes using the Instant pot duo so I can get using mine. Have googled and found a few but would love more from you please.
    Thank you so much.

    Hi Natasha,
    Thank-you!! I use many of your recipes and have yet to come across something that hasn’t delivered. Your choices are amazing and instructions are to point! I’ll be trying out the Kiwi/Berry cake this week, getting it ready for our Greek Orthodox Easter celebration!
    Many thanks!

    The paska worked out so well! Any chance of a reliable patychky recipe? If you do, please include cut of meat used? And maybe a hollupschi recipe as well?

    Hi Natasha!
    I enjoy watching your videos on Facebook. What can I use to replace buttermilk? (avocado ranch..)

      Hi Nina, I haven’t tested this but a plain yogurt may work, one of our readers had this idea. If you experiment, let me know how you liked the recipe
