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.

In fact,I also came when I was 4 but grew up in California. I am amazed that your English is so good and that you know how to make so many dishes especially ones popular here in the U.S. I would love to see how you make some Russian dishes such as “vareniki with potatoes ” and “pelmeni with chicken “,along with Borscht and Napoleon! I actually have a lasagna in the oven now thanks to you and a Russian guy. I hope to hear from you soon. Spasiba!

          Lulu, we have a note on that in the recipe post :). Please find “Can I Substitute the Buttermilk?” Plain kefir will also work well instead of buttermilk. You can also make your own buttermilk at a ratio of 1 cup whole milk to 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice. Combine and let it sit 10 minutes to curdle then stir and use. I hope this helps!

      Hi Bridgett, It can look soupy before it comes together and that is normal. If it stays soupy after a few extra minutes of mixing, it is likely due to adding butter before the meringue fully reached room temperature, or due to adding oversoftened or partially melted butter. I would suggest refrigerating 10-15 minutes at a time and continuing to mix and it should come together.

    Natasha do you ever cook with a air fryer? Of course all that I have watched from you did not include one. I’ve tried several of your recipes turned out great. Thank you for that.

    Hello. I discovered your blog when searching for vanilla extract recipes. I have a question. Do I need to strain the vanilla at all before gifting? If I do leave in the beans, what will happen when they become uncovered? Is there anything I need to tell the gift recipients? Thank you

      Hi, there is no need to strain the beans. I leave them in there so they can continue to refill the bottle and make more.

      Hi Paige, we absolutely love our Strawberry Sauce! You can make this strawberry topping 1 to 4 days in advance, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve. I haven’t tried it beyond that.

    I have made your fudge brownie recipe twice, and it still comes out doughy in the middle, even after I baked them longer. The taste is fantastic, so I really want to get this right, but have put a lot of time and money in this recipe and don’t know what i could be doing wrong. I was looking for comments from other readers, and maybe thought with other comments, I could catch something, but I haven’t found any. If you could help me out, I’d so appreciate your time.
    Sincerely, Becky

    Hi Natasha.
    I love your recipes although new to your site. Your teaching is clear (love the use of video plus written directions as I’m a visual learner), use common ingredients (I don’t have to buy a lot of ingredients I will not use later), are humerous in your videos adding much interest plus the meals taste amazing. What’s to lose? I would love a good Yorkshire pudding recipe. I tried the prime rib recipe in which my husband and I overindulged but was missing its companion, Yorkshire pudding. Covid has given me far too much time to play in the kitchen but I’m sure I will use these recipes in the years to come. Thank you.

      Hi Connie, I’m glad you’re enjoying my recipes. Frosted cupcakes can be put in an airtight container with a tightly sealed lid. Make sure the container is deep enough to not squash the tops of your finished cupcakes. Store cupcakes on the counter at room temperature or refrigerate them and let them thaw first before serving.

    My wife and I really enjoy your videos and your recipes. Last week we made the churros recipe along with the chocolate ganache and caramel sauce. Even if we have to say so ourselves, the churros were amazing. They were not greasy and were so light, just out of this world. We have had churros in Spain many times and in our opinion, your recipe far exceeds what we had in Spain.

    Thank you for sharing and stay safe.

    Natasha,
    I am getting ready to start cooking my annual Russian Orthodox Easter feast. For the past two years, I’ve been using your recipe for Kulich. Simply Fantastic! I need some help though. I’m using the pannetore molds as suggested. I’m having a little trouble with the very bottom of the Kulich (eighth to a quarter inch) being oven-cooked (slightly burnt). I simply have been removing the bottom edge. What could I be doing wrong or should try to bake differently. I’ve been trying to successfully make this bread for nearly 40 years, and not until I found your recipe, was I successful. Wow! Thank you.

    • Natasha
      April 22, 2021

      Hi David, are you placing them on a dark baking sheet possibly or if you have a heating element from the bottom also, make sure your bread is sitting in the center of your oven (the rack in the lower third of your oven). I hope that helps! Lastly, make sure to use conventional oven baking since this isn’t written for convection.

        Thanks so much for the feedback Natasha and sorry for the mis-spellings in my earlier email. I have ordered new baking sheets and my pannetone molds from Pastry Chef arrived over the weekend. Thanks for the tip on oven placement. I’ve always wondered how to figure out the center of the oven. Cooking starts Thursday. I’m also going to try your recipe for stuffed cabbage. I have one that I’ve used for years but I think I’ll combine the best of both. I know its a bit early, but Christos Voskrese!!

My favorite is your 30 minute meals, the juicy meatballs & marinera current go to! I saw your a nurse in your ‘resume’, my husband and I are both in the medical field, myself a nurse and he’s a resident. I was wondering if you composted any of your veggie and fruit scraps or subscribed to any compositing program where you live? Cheers! Bri

    Hi, your Italian meatball recipe is brilliant. Will never cook meatballs differently again. Just a question please. Have you baked them in the oven before? If so, how long and at what temperature please.

      Hi Mari, are you referring to our Juicy Meatball Recipe? Please see this note in the recipe “Avoid overcooking – Sautee or bake just until they reach 160˚F on an instant-read thermometer.” So yes, you can bake them. We also mentioned the bake time and temperature in the recipe “Baked Meatballs: Place on a lined baking sheet, about 2″ apart and bake in a preheated oven at 400˚F for 20-23 minutes, or until the centers register 160˚F. If you want a prettier color to your meatballs, broil for the last 2-3 minutes.” I hope that is helpful to you!
