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.

    Hello Natasha, me and my son (2 years) often watch and cook according to your recipes. I love them, thank you.

    Actually, I have a foodblog as well, here in Czech Republic. And you might know, we are having a lot of people from Ukraine here now. I would like to make some traditional recipe and there is a czech web page saing that typical ukrainian cake would be made from poppy seeds with no flour. And topped with whipped cream and strawberries.
    I would like to use the recipe as a welcome gesture. If you could give me your advice, I would be very happy. My reading of ukraine texts is not well enough for exact recipes 🙁

    Would you consider putting all of your recipe into some sort of print format or book that the public can purchase? Admittedly, trying to follow your recipes, with all the advertisements on these pages is extremely frustrating! Nine chances out of 10, I’d get so flustered that I’d give up and leave. If you ever do, please let me know and I will be first in line to buy one!

    Hello Natahsa,
    I’ve been following you for several years and love your recipes and easy to follow videos. Next, I’m praying daily for the citizens of Ukrain. Lastly, I have a question about a recipe. My grandmother was from Lithuania and used to make a soup she called Sauerkraut Soup. I know it was made with short ribs, sauerkraut and had some carrots and maybe potatoes. Does this sound at all familiar to you and if so, do you have a recipe or a link to one?
    Thank you.

      Hi Stephen, I don’t always sift my flour but because it settles to the bottom and becomes dense over time as it sits in its container, I fluff it up a little bit using a spoon. Then I spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level off the top with a straight edge.

    Please help. I’m looking into getting an air fryer and see you use the Cuisinart 60. Several reviews indicate that the thermostat doesn’t work and it gets really hot. Cuisinart is a good name, but I’m hesitant. Thoughts?

      Hi Stephanie, I haven’t had any issues with it, but as with all things, there could be a few issues out there. PErsonal we have enjoyed it. BTW, you can find our favorite kitchen tools in our Amazon Affiliate Shop HERE I have other air fryers we have tried listed there.

    Russian tea cakes – Secret 🤫 or mom will kill me 😂. I use your recipes so it’s only fair.
    Try with King Arthur’s flour – shift TWICE.
    Use a mix of 3 nuts – walnut, pecan, almond

    Hi Natasha – would you consider doing an Asian cold noodle salad with grilled chicken, a bit of red cabbage and raw snap peas – it’s all about the dressing and I would love to see your rendition of it – cheers from Canada 🇨🇦

    Hi Natasha,
    I love your website and your recipes but I would like to see an excellent recipe for Baba Ghanoush! I love this dish and it is so healthy! I would also like to find roasted sesame seed paste! I’ve tried liquid smoke but the dish is not the same without that. Keep up the good! You are such a blessing!

      Hi Charles, thank you for letting me know. I have never encountered this, usually, if a video or ad pops up you’ll be able to close it after a while if you click on the x button. Are you sure you’re not pressing anything to move to the next recipe?

      Hi Jeff, for me, it’s just continuing to roll until it goes away (or is almost gone – it’s not always perfect). Also, is it possible you might be adding too much flour? I could see how that might be causing it? Make sure you aren’t flouring your counter when you roll them.

        Thank you! Yep, I didn’t have a kitchen scale, so it’s possible I’m adding too much flour.

    Hello Natasha!
    I’m in the middle of fixing your special meatloaf sauce and I don’t have onion powder!! I Have chopped onions and minced onions or a real onion. What can I substitute for the onion powder? This is a wonderful meatloaf and it is my second time fixing it. I love the sauce! Hope you can text me right away so my sauce will be perfect!
    Thank you!
