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 experiences 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 working 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 March 2021, we passed 2,000,000 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’m from the UK.
    Tonight’s dinner here is nearly 18.00pm.
    I cooked us your Chicken Chow Mein, my husband has devoured it, he’s also eaten 2 foods he’s never tried, now I know everybody has certain tastes, I love Chinese. But the foods I hate garlic, onions and spice foods as in hot, don’t mind mild .
    But your chow mein sauce was to die for the only thing I couldn’t put in was the sesame oil, as i I have a health condition apart from others, I can’t have nuts,seeds and wholemeal and wholegrain.
    I forgot to drain the oil from the chicken as well.
    I added some beansprouts to which I love. I’ve learned from your good self how to julienne carrots also. You are my lovely 🌟
    So thank you now I’ve got my husband to eat beansprouts and corgette. He hates cabbage. I love it, especially with bacon.
    I hope you get the jist.
    Lovely to have a chat with you.

I was hoping to find a recipe for it here but no such luck…so my request is for you to make Noodles Romanoff! Keep up the wonderful blog and recipe shares! I’ve so much more confidence in my cooking after viewing your easy to follow instructions and notable “Don’t skip this!” when you think we might be tempted. Lol. Thanks again!

    I’m measuring my Chocolate Crinkle Cookies exactly as your recipe shows. But my cookies come out very flat. My neighbor did the same. Your picture shows thicker cookies. Should I reduce the oil a little? Making larger dough balls just made larger flat cookies. I have a Viking oven and I also refrigerated the dough both times overnight.
    Thank you and thankful for you, Natasha

    Quick question on the prime rib alot of blogs say you should put the oven to 500 at the end of cooking it to sear it then have you ever tried this

      Hi Glen, we haven’t done that at the end. I recommend trying our recipe without any substitutions first before making any alterations 🙂

    Hi Natasha,
    I love all of the amazing recipes you share and have made many and shared with friends.
    I started living a Keto lifestyle back in May of 2020 and had to change the way I cook and eat so I have not been able to enjoy as many if your recipes as I use to.
    I tend to use healthy fats like Coconut oil, Avacado oil and Olive oil along with Butter to cook with in order to get my fats in along with eating low carb vegetables. I was wondering if you had ever thought about creating a Keto alternative version of some of your recipes. You make so many amazing things and they tend to either be healthy or use healthy fats as Keto eaters eat Cream, Butter, Cheese as well.
    I know I try to convert some of your recipes using crushed Pork Rinds for bread crumbs and cream instead of milk, but I am sure you could do much better.
    Just thought I would reach out and say thank you for the great food and if you ever wanted another direction of cooking Keto is used by so many for health issues not just weight loss and I would love to make any of the recipes you come up with or conversions of the ones you have.

      Hi Tamira, since we do not follow a keto diet, we don’t have keto substitutions on our recipes. Sometimes readers share helpful suggestions in the comments so I would suggest searching comments but we don’t have a special keto diet section currently. Thank you for the suggestion!

    I watched your video on cheesy potato pancakes I’m more than likely will make them I think they would make a great side dish but to use leftover mashed potatoes do you have a recipe for lefsa? That is what I use my leftover mashed potatoes for another very simple recipe to put together just time-consuming rolling them out and cooking them up but oh they’ll rewards so so good
