About

Hai!! My name is Natasha and I am the Ukrainian foodie. Vadim is my handsome man ❤️. We happily run this blog together full time (more on that below).

Natasha's Kitchen

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 13 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 is actively involved in a Christian Slavic church. 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 800 recipes and more than 3.2 Million hungry visitors per month.

My goal for this site is for people around the world to really discover and fall in love with Ukrainian and Russian cooking. 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).

Much of the knowledge I share comes from my Mama, Mama-in-law and family members #majorprops. I am so thankful to have such amazing people in my life who generously share their rich knowledge of Russian/ Ukrainian 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!

As we are a very multicultural country and lucky to have access to many different food types it is easy to find ingredients. Looking forward to continuing my food journey with you.

    Dear Natasha,
    I’m so glad I found you on Facebook.
    I’m Slovak, married to an Aussie, living in Brisbane. (We’ve got a daughter Natalia – I call her Natasha 😉 and a son Thomas..)
    Your blog is a God send.. I love my Slovak food, but often it’s very heavy and unhealthy, so your recipes are giving me an idea how to combine Slavic cuisine with a modern and healthy twist.
    Keep up the great work and all the best. Reply

    I am the poster who asked for a substitute for dill (and you replied “try cilantro” in the chicken avocado salad recipe). My grandmother was Croatian and came through Ellis Island when she was two years old (which was around 1911).

    Nana gave me a small, paperback, Hungarian cookbook when I was in my early twenties and I was so glad to find your website. I’m excited about trying more Ukranian/Russian dishes as they feel so close to home for me. Thank you for creating this website and responding so quickly to posts.

    • Natashas Kitchen
      June 27, 2018

      Hi Carolyn, If you’re referring to the Chicken Madeira recipe and are looking to make it wine-free, you could just use more broth but the flavor profile wouldn’t be quite the same. The madeira wine gives it a unique, sweet flavor profile and I haven’t experimented with anything besides wine to provide a specific recommendation. Reply

    I want to tell you how you inspired me to venture out and try new things. I made your European Sponge Cake and layered it into 4’s. Each layer had my lemon curd and every berry imaginable and kiwi, along with my homemade whipped cream. The top of the cake was the same with added mint leaves for presentation. It by far was the most beautiful and delicious cake I’ve ever had. Thank You 🍓🍋 Reply

    Natasha,

    I see in your bio it says that you came to the US as a refugee. My family also came to the US from Ukraine as Jewish refugees in the early 90s. Are you also part Jewish? Reply

      Hi Kate, it’s so nice to “meet” you! 🙂 Thank you for sharing your story with us. My Grandmother was Polish but I don’t believe we had anyone in the family who was Jewish. Reply

      My mother was brought to the U.S., from Ukraine, by her parents, about 1917. That may be a bit earlier than the others, but the story is basically the same. Reply

    The Banana Bread is beyond Fabulous!!!! Do I need to adjust recipe for 1.5 loaf pan from Nordic Ware? You are a sweetie and so much fun to watch and learn from. I am so grateful that I came across you. Blessings to you and your Adorable Family. Diane Paull Reply

      Most loaf pans come standard in size at 1.5 pound capacity, so the Nordic Ware one should work just fine. I’m so happy to hear you are enjoying my blog! Thank you for sharing that with us Diane 🙂 Reply

My repertoire covers dishes from various regions of India , and let me assure you , our cuisine is very vast , involving all sorts of meats , sea food , vegetables , lentils cooked with a long list of spices . In addition to Indian , I cook Chinese , South East Asian , Continental and Italian . But here , it all depends upon the availability of ingredients . I want to try out some Russian and Ukeranian dishes . So , here I am …. Reply

    Natasha could you please recommend to me a cake to make for kids birthday from the list of cakes you make? American kids don’t eat to much from Eastern European cooking. I was wondering what kind of cake you make for your kids birthdays. Thank you! Reply

      • Natasha
        May 28, 2018

        Hi Olga, I can’t think of any off the top since most of our cakes are soft sponge cakes. Maybe if you converted the vanilla cupcakes into cakes, that could work well since that cake is stiffer. Sorry I can’t be more helpful! Reply

    Natsha,
    I tried your chicken fritters last night, and everyone loved them, even though many of them came apart,( I’ll try again).Your coming from Ukraine caught my attention, as I have a very good pastor friend in Kiev, (Peter Nigorny). so I perk up when I hear Ukraine connections. I’m glad you openly share about your love for Jesus, as a pastor I encourage all believers to be bold. Keep up the good work, I’ll try some more recipes soon. Reply
