FREE BONUS: 5 Secrets to Be a Better Cook!

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.

    Hello Natasha!
    I recently discovered you on facebook and instantly fell in love!
    I was born a foodie but never really loved cooking. So I love trying food from around the world. Watching your videos you have inspired me to try diferent recipes and they have been a hit with my kids ages 4,6 and 8… AND my husband who is a picky eater! Anything straying a bit from traditional Mexican food was hard to get by him, but he has loved your dishes.
    Love watching your videos, thanks for the inspiration! Reply

    I loved your corn chowder recipe so much I made it twice in three days. I added a heaping tablespoon of fresh rosemary, a 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt, while reducing the regular salt by 1/2 teaspoon. I didn’t have cream corn so I increased the peaches and cream corn by 50% and doubled the bacon. I used double smoked maple bacon instead. Everything is better with maple bacon. Reply

    Hi sweetie if i am making chow main and i dont have oyster sauce what other sauce can i use? Mirim? Hoisin? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      March 27, 2020

      Hi Veronica, the oyster sauce will give you the most authentic flavor but most people would substitute oyster sauce with soy sauce, so I would suggest adding soy sauce to taste. It will taste better if you mix equal parts of soy sauce and hoisin sauce to get that sweet and salty flavor you are looking for here. Reply

I love them when the dough is silky, they just slide right down! LOL Some people make the dough very tough which I don’t care for. I will definitely try your recipe which looks delicious!

I would really love it if you could help and maybe tell me if you have any videos showing what sort of food I can try and eat or cook up for my self. As I havent really stuck to low salt and protein and it’s taking its affect on my kidneys.

      Hi Tom, I’m sorry to hear that. I don’t have any categories that fit those two criteria currently and we have hundreds of recipes. Check out our Recipe index here – you might start with our salads and sides. Many of our recipes can be made with reduced salt and by swapping out salt for a salt-free seasoning like Mrs Dash or adding lemon or lime juice where it makes sense for extra flavor. Reply

      Hi Anne, it really depends on the recipe. Which recipe are you hoping to substitute stevia for? Reply

    Hey Natasha,
    I have cooked more things from your videos than ANY other person or video. I have made the breakfast burritos and they were a hit with my granddaughter, who is 7yo. She likes to help when I am cooking. I love cooking!!!! You have a lovely family… Reply

    Natasha, I love everyone of your recipes that I have tried. And that is many, love the chicken tetrazinni one. I’m a good cook and 77 years young. However, I know your heritage is from the Ukraine, but everyone is a little Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. I need your version of Corned Beef and Cabbage. Do you have one? Reply
