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.

    The first time I’ve watched your video, I fell in love with you. You are such a gifted, classy and quirky cook and your recipes are amazing. I just read your background and so glad to know that you and your family are Christians who want to follow and honour Jesus. So glad to find a website that I can go to for easy, healthy and delicious recipes, especially for a working mum like me. Thank you Natasha. God bless and all the best to your channel.

    Natasha I love you & your recipes are wonderful & you do a great job showing us. But, I am so disappointed with the mini cheesecake with caramel sauce. it says “mini” which is known to be a mini size pan for 24. I have so much batter left over but used the crust ingredients in the 24 pan. Now I have to make more graham crust to use the rest of the batter. I have been baking for 67 yrs. Watching your video again, looks almost like a cup cake size, although thinking a muffin size????

    • Natasha
      September 30, 2019

      Hi Marianne, the mini is referring to the cheesecakes that they are mini compared to regular full-sized cheesecake. I wrote in the instructions: “Line a 24-count muffin tin.” which was a traditional muffin tin. Sorry for the confusion there. I also used a regular-sized cupcake pan in the video tutorial. I will put a note in the written recipe to emphasize that it is a regular-sized cupcake/muffin tin.

    Hi Natasha,
    I just watched your knife tutorial, and I have a question for you.
    Do you ever consider posting stuff for people with arthritis? I have rather severe pain in my thumbs and forefingers, so have had to switch to all ceramic knives, and mezaluna type knifes. So, how do you sharpen those? And what’s a good way to hold a knife if you can’t use the thumb to put pressure on anything, because the joint will be too painful after only one or two cuts.

I noticed you mention your apple rose tart is lightly sweet. What other dessert recipes on your blog would you consider lightly sweet?

    Hi there I watched a video about cutting onions and you asked for tips on how to stop them stinging and making your eyes cry! I only believe that if you hold your breath while chopping them it helps! Take a deep breath and chop them up.. turn away from the onions fumes are all times .. it may take a bit longer but it works for me! The fumes go through your nose and into your eyes so a good cold water wash helps before chopping them too! I hope it helps you a bit!

        My training is as an analytical chemist, and I love to cook. To keep the onion (or garlic) fumes from making your eyes tear, is to run the onions and garlic under cold water after peeling, so that the surface is wet. The chemicals that cause tearing are called lacrimators, and those are water soluble, so if there’s water on the surface, the lacrimators go into the water instead of into the air. Voila! No tears!

It must be difficult to get an authentic Italian roll in Idaho as we claim it’s our water that makes them unique here in Philly. I could almost smell the onions through the video. Only complaint – we don’t put mayo on ours! But by all means enjoy it the way you like. Job well done!

    Hi Natasha, I am a quite experienced cook but a new reader / viewer of your blog. Just wanted to let you know, that as a USSR-born myself, I love the mix of traditional Russian/Ukranian recepies and modern American cuisine.
    I also enjoy your outgoing and cute manner and sense of humor. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Natasha,

    Quick question… what meat thermometer (brand/model) do you use?

    I enjoy your recipes! Thank you!

    I am getting ready to make the Vanilla recipe. I got a very good deal on Ebay for a lot of vanilla beans. Can I use 1 bean cut in half per 4oz of vodka, or do I need 1.5 beans?

      Hi Ellen, using less than directed will still work but it will take longer to get a darker colored vanilla and won’t have quite the same depth of flavor.

    Our favorite restaurant is ‘The Spaghetti Factory’ and we used to go there all the time. The only problem is now that we live in Houston, the closest one is located in Nashville Tn…. 800 miles away. lol Is there any chance you can copy their amazing Clam Sauce. Some have tried but they are not close. lol I bet you could do it.

    Thanks so much for this great blog. I’m determined to get better in the kitchen, and Natasha’s Kitchen has got a mountain of great recipies to practice with! My family and coworkers thank you for the treats.

    Though I must tell you, your children have exceeded the allowable cuteness quotient for one family. Seriously, what an adorable pair. All the best and thanks again.

    Hi Natasha, It is so good to see someone that is happy to declare their faith. This is the first time I have come across your blog and like yourself I come from a line of very good cooks. Although believe it or not I have never made a sponge cake. Lots of other cakes but not sponge. So I am wondering if your sponge cake recipe could be double or tripled as I need to make a cake for my brother’s 70th birthday which is in two weeks! Most recipes are for round sponges. I need to make a rectangle cake because it will be for 30 people. My tin is stainless steel and the size is 34 & 1/2 cms x 26cms. I Am hoping you can help me. It is going to be layered with custard and soaked with liquor. Many thanks,Anna

    Love your blueberry lemon cake but my guy needs to be gluten-free. Just made recipe with GF flour and it seemed dryer and more dense. Any suggestions?

      Hi Deborah, several of our readers have reported great results using gluten-free flour without getting dense. Here is what one of our readers wrote “I honestly haven’t tested this with gluten free flour but there was one person who wrote in and shared their experience: ”used Cup4Cup Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour. It is expensive but the best I’ve tried so far. Anyway, the cake came out great. We loved it and I’m planning to make it again for Easter. Just wanted to let any possible gluten intolerant folks now.” I also recommend reading our post on measuring to make sure that was done accurately.

I have tried few of your recipes and must say, all turned out absolutely delicious. I never liked cooking but for the last 12 months I have found a new joy in cooking and hardly dine out.

    The ‘food tasting’ scene is equally entertaining:):):)

    Thank you and your family for this great work.
