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.

    Mrs. Kravchuk, I have used your vareniki recipe and fell in love with your work. I love your blog, the photos and the food! Truly it is amazing what you are doing, ma’am.

    I have fallen in love with Russian and Ukrainian cuisine and I am so glad to see that you are continuing this tradition in such a wholesome and respectable way.

      Hi Larisa, We are currently working on adding metric measurements to all of our recipes but it is taking some time as we have to add them one at a time. Thank you so much for being patient! In the meantime, check out our post on measuring which should help. Also, please note, most of our recipes have the metric conversion option on the printable card towards the bottom of each recipe post. I hope that helps

    I can honestly say I’m not a good cook, not even a cook. I forget to put salt in food and soooo many other problems.
    I really want to learn and I’ve watched numerous food shows but the always sprinkle and there. I just don’t know how to calculate the amount of salt, pepper …

      July 7, 2020

      Hi Sonia, in most of our recipes, I try to add specific amounts where I can because I like to know how it was intended to be made, but salt should always be added to taste since salt can vary from table salt to kosher, pink salt, sea salt, etc and 1/2 tsp kosher is not the same as 1/2 tsp table salt. I hope you find our recipes helpful in regards to seasoning.

    Hi Natasha,
    I have only recently started watching your videos and I am now obsessed, one because you make it look so easy, and second it is simple meals not complicated. I just did one of your receipes last night the broccoli & chicken stir-fry with the rice which I must tell you I have been doing my rice wrong for years. This Canadian girl does not like cooking and my wonderful husband of 51 years usually cooks all the meals, which he loves to do…but since watching your videos I am looking forward to trying to cook more. Thank you again and God Bless you & your family and A Happy 4th of July tomorrow.

    Dear Natasha and Family,

    Thank you so very much for your wonderful recipes and videos! It is so nice to have some positivity, especially in these uncertain times. My Mom was a wonderful cook, but she had far too many responsibilities working when I was little to teach me. When I went off to college, I didn’t even know how to boil an egg! I had to buy a book to teach me! Why don’t you consider to write a book called “what your Mom never had time to teach you in the kitchen?” God Bless and wishing you many years of future success!

    PS your family is Beautiful!

    Warm Regards,
    Maria

    Hello Natasha,

    Thank you so much for all of your video recipes. I watch them from my Facebook account. I love cooking as well (my family and friends say that I am a good cook). Having said that, I find that your recipes are easy to follow, all the ingredients are easy to find and most of all, they all taste delicious. The cooking and baking techniques you use are spot-on!!!

    I am learning so many new recipes from you. And I am re-learning recipes I have tried in the past that seemed too complicated – but are super easy with yours. And again, are super delicious!

    Natasha, I love that you are a Christian. May the grace of God be upon you and your family always. Praise God for His favor upon you and the work of your hands. May the fruits of the Holy Spirit continue to manifest into your life.

    You are such an inspiration! Continue to bring us joy through your gifts!

    To God be the glory!!!

    Warmly,
    Gigi Grey-Ricarse

    Natasha, i love the Tvorog recipe. I switched to 2% milk and it ended up as sour cream
    Is it necessary to use whole milk to form the Tvorog? Thanks.

      Hi Allison, whole milk and particularly organic whole milk is best for the tvorog to form properly.

    I have one problem, in Denmark we don’t have ’cup’ Measurement. It will be very helpful if you write me back what is the measurement for 1 cup in dl(deciliter).
    Have a nice day!

      Thank you so muhc for that feedback Anna! Most of our recipes have the metric conversion option towards the bottom of our printable recipe card. We are currently working on adding metric measurements to all of our recipes but it is taking some time as we have to add them one at a time. Thank you so much for being patient! In the meantime, check out our post on measuring which should help

    Hi Natasha,

    I tried your chocolate chip cookie recipe and converted the amount of flour to grams but the cookies did not flatten as much as I hoped. Do you ever measure your ingredients and would you consider adding the gram weight to your recipes? Thanks!

    Hi Natasha, I began watching your food video and fell in love with your style of cooking .. it simple and easy to follow.
    I am going to make your Plum Jam recipe and will be my first time.
    I bought the mason jars .Following sterilization steps you gave , what happens if I just filled the jar with the cooked jam and not canning?
    What does it mean by placing the filled jar and putting it in the oven?
    Will the shelf life be long ? Or okay without canning?

    Thanks , Ruby

      Hi Ruby, you would have to refrigerate the jam or freeze it if you aren’t going to preserve it. You won’t be able to store at room temperature without following the canning process.

    Hi Natasha!
    My son has been taking a high school foods course. With Covid we have been trying new things at home. We were looking for a blueberry pie recipe and stumbled across yours! I had never tried making a pie before so I was pretty nervous about it. We watched your video and thought…”let’s try it!” I think your personality is what hooked me, but boy your recipe was fantastic, especially for the pie crust! I’m pretty sure he would have gotten an “A” on this one! Thanks so much!

    But there is one think that I really don’t like is the amount of adds on your website. It makes it very hard for me. It keeps on jumping around. It discourages me to try new recipes from your website. I would rather pay monthly subscription to support you that way.
