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.

    I really enjoy your recipes. I started with your chicken, avocado, bacon dish one summer when I was single. I ate this so much. I couldn’t get enough of it. Since then, I have acquired a husband, who I made the aforementioned salad for and he loved it. I then tried your meatloaf and it is to die for. He requests it often. I recently branched out and made your chicken tortilla soup, another yum. The following week, it was the taco soup recipe. Today,I am venturing out on the corn chowder. None of your recipes have let me down and have been added to my rotation of cooking. I am now at the point, when I think of something to cook, I always go to your archives to see if you have it, knowing full well it will be delicious. Thank you so much for your recipes. This gal in California loves them!

I understand that there is not a specific Christmas food in the USA, but I found a Christmas cake on your blog which I would love to make now for Christmas. Do you have some typical Christmas cake from Ukraine which you can recommend? Thanks!

    Last night was the second night I attempted to make your recipe of baby back ribs in the pressure cooker. I have tried 7 or 8 recipes and the flavor did not hit the mark. Your recipe is 100% perfect I thought the first time I did it your way I did something wrong because it was very good. So last night I did it again with a different brand rib and again these were the best ever. It must have something to do with the apple juice. I want to say thank you because baby back ribs are my favorite food other than a standing rib roast.

    Thank you Natasha for inspiring me to keep cooking when recently, and physically , I’ve been dealt a cardiac issue that now has me cooking and baking everything from scratch. A virus born illness put me in congestive heart failure, and now food limitations and fluid restrictions has led me to making everything I eat from scratch. Sometimes I just want to give up because it’s hard to make everything, sauces, stocks ect from scratch. BUT!! Your joy and inspiration keeps me going with each recipe, and each video I see , even as I have to recreate them to stay on my restrictive diet. Thank you so much for making me laugh today, when it’s hard to laugh emotionally. You’re a special lady of the kitchen, and you’re close! I am 2 hrs away from Boise in eastern Oregon😉

    Hi Natasha! Love your site and your recipes! I just made my very first apple pie (with your pie crust)! It’s cooling down now and I can’t wait to try it at Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow! One quick comment – in the recipe it says the egg wash is one egg with one tablespoon of water. On your video you say the egg wash is one egg with a tablespoon of SUGAR. The sugar makes sense as it will help brown the crust. (I made mine following the printed recipe and it still looks delicious.). Just wanted to pass this along.

I wanted to make your broccoli and grape salad but when I printed the recipe I started making the broccoli salad with apples, raisins, carrots – well you get the idea. Anyway I made the dressing with mayo and sour cream with fresh lemon juice and when I realized my mistake, I just added all the extra stuff that goes into the broccoli grape salad, pine nuts, bacon etc. Long story short it turned out SUPER GOOD and every last bit got eaten with no left overs. What a success!

    Dear Natasha:
    Just a note of admiration for who God created you to be. I am NOT a social media person but during this pandemic I had to resort to a lot of online resources for my work as a church pastor. I came across your site (NATASHASKITCHEN) on YOUTUBE and I selected it out of pure curiosity. I am NOT even a fan of cooking shows (TV or Internet). Your show topic of “dinner rolls” (Nov 20) caught my attention. I was immediately “hooked” …… into your presentation but moreso hooked into the most contagious demeanor that you are as Natasha! There are people who come across being “natural” and then there are some who come across as “down-to-earth”. But there is only “ONE” Natasha who not is so natural in her on-camera personna and down-to-earth in her online personality but your PURE zeal and joy is nothing but contagious! At the end you had your daughter come on to taste your fresh dinner rolls. I noticed she was showing off her Sunday School craft! Then I knew you must be a church goer (Christian). Natasha, you truly have the spirit of joy from the Lord. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust Him , so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Rom. 15:13) You said that as a young girl you worried that no one will marry you and then God placed VADIM into your life and he “swept” you off your feet and married you. You know what Natasha, I believe it is the REVERSE. It was God placing you in VADIM’s life and by your CONTAGIOUS (infectious) zest for life (John 10:10) and pure joy in your whole person you actually “SWEPT” Vadim off his feet!!!!!!!!! May God bless you and your work online and bless your two children as they grow in the Word and teachings of Christ in Boise, Ida-who??? May you continue to draw many others to Christ by your marriage relationship.

    I LOVE YOUR RECIPES!!! I am not a great cook..and it is not something I enjoy. I hate thinking up stuff to have and most of the other recipes I have found online never turn out quite like the picture shown. I have made your recipes for the last week and my picky eating children have approved all of them! Cooking was such a daunting task..I would often times just say forget it and order take out. My husband isn’t a fast food eater so he was getting quite frustrated. But so far I have been a little more enthused and hopeful about dinner. You are my go-to for recipes from now on! I have tried enough of them to trust them. Facebook is how I found
    You and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for all of your hard work that helps make my life less work.

    Discovered your website recently on Facebook. I love to cook (from scratch) and have tried some of your recipes. This evening I prepared the Chicken Stir Fry and loved it. Your method and a couple of new additions (like honey and butter) really made it delicious. Can hardly wait to try something again tomorrow. Thank you for your videos and commentary.

    Hi Natasha…I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic site you have. I subscribe to your You Tube channel, and also receive your newsletters. Since I don’t use a computer, and get all this on my phone, I would love to see the recipes I get in my emails, be saved to a “Recipe Box” To pick a variety of recipes that I love and have them saved to one area would be great. I hope that you consider that option.
    You’re a lovely lady with an adorable family and colorful and enticing newsletters. Continued success to you, and I recommend your site to everyone I know.
    Thank you 💜

    Natasha,

    I would like to thank you so much for your wonderful videos I really appreciate that most of your receipies are freezable as my husband works 2nd shift and I work 1st shift. SO I cook and then leave it in the frig for him then freeze afterwards. You have insprired me to actually cook again. I have always enjoyed cooking but since it is only the 2 of us and I ate alone I figured why cook for 1. Again Thank you I now have something to do in the evenings. I have make many of your desserts (so good). Love you homemade Pie crust.

    Thank you!

    • Natashas Kitchen
      November 16, 2020

      Hi Darlene, If you serve your stroganoff with noodles, make sure to store the pasta separately from the sauce. Noodles tend to absorb liquid and will suck up your sauce overnight! I would follow your noodle package instructions and make enough for the number of people you are serving.

    I absolutely love your recipes and cook them often…I have a question about the Shrimp patties with the lemon/garlic aioli…I need to take an appetizer to a ladies meeting of about 50 and I want to take this recipe. I am wondering if I could put it in a mini muffin tin with perhaps a croissant used as a pie crust and put a small scope on it to bake…It would be just a bit and easier to serve in this Covid world…I would brush the aioli on just before serving. Do you think this would work? How long do I bake to make sure it is done? Any suggestion…

I appreciate you’re recipes and especially appreciate the advice and hints that you provide along with your videos. I also like that you include the nutritional info;however, I don’t see any serving size reference included. Am I just missing it or how can I determine a serving size with your recipes when counting calories?

    Hi Natasha,
    I made your apple pie recipie.
    It tastes great but about the dough, I think I made some mistake and the apples got smaller when they baked and that left a void between the upper crust and the apples. Will try to rectify it next time!
    That was the first apple pie I made (quarantine privides a lot of free time…!)

    Hi Natasha,
    I just started following your cooking journey on Youtube and found my self hooked with your recipes, then now I’ve searched for your website and browse some of your recipes. Once I’ve read the part about you, omg! I’m so thankful to you, now I really found what I really wanted to be and where I know I am destined to be, it is cooking. I do love cooking, I am only 22 years old and I just graduated from college last year and I’m currently working in an Insurance Company which is not inline with my bachelors degree which is Tourism Management. But I know it deep inside me that cooking is really destined for me. I’m a Filipina by the way, and I came from poor family. And being the eldest I need to set aside my own goals to help my parents provide for my other 4 siblings. but I’m praying that I could have my own restaurant one day, and my own mini cooking show on youtube. Thank you for the inspiration Natasha!
