Favorites

For those of you who are new to this site and are feeling a little overwhelmed, I thought I’d start a list of my absolute favorite recipes – those that I recommend you try first. And BTW, let me know what your favorites are!!

This list will probably change over time as I post more recipes and discover new favorites! First, I thought it only appropriate to add a random photo of our kiddos (this too is subject to change).

    Hello Ms. Natasha:
    I am one of your fan. But my question is do you have recipe book, if you do…where can I purchase? Reply

    Hi I love watching you baking your mini pavlova, and I tried searching for your recipe, if you don’t mind I asked if I can, so I bake for my kids, coz they love it… Reply

    Your salmon patties are tremendous. I am not a fan of fresh salmon, only when my dad use to catch it and stuff it and cook it on the barbecue would I eat it…yet I love most other fish.
    I do however love canned wild salmon and made your recipe and it was great.
    We are having them again this weekend.
    Just joined your group. Looking forward to making more of your recipes. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    I discovered your website/blog after a Facebook friend posted one of your food videos (it was a rice/beef slow cooker recipe). I myself absolutely abhor cooking (I love vegetable gardening) but your recipes look divine! I hardly ever cook and have always vowed that I will only ever marry (ever) if my husband does all the cooking. Thank you for sharing your talent and your Christ centered testimony. BTW: I recognized some of your mom’s recipes as closely resembling my own mother’s Romanian recipes: Meatball soup, Poppy Seed Roll. In Romanian they are called respectively “Ciorba de perisoare” and “Cozonac”. Anyway, thank you for sharing your talent! If you one day publish a cook book, I will buy it…as a gift for my future (if it should ever, by God’s miracle, happen) husband.

    Thank you and God bless you,

    Maria Popovici Reply

    Hi Natasha

    Ive just joined your site as I found your Avocado Tuna Salad receipe… and OMG I love it soooooo much!! I tend to cut down the portion for just me to once tin of tuna, one avocado etc even that lasts me two meals!

    Have you ever used frozen Avocado? Is it any good for salads or does it go to mush? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen

      Thank you so much for sharing that with me. I haven’t tested that with frozen avocados. If you experiment, let me know how you liked the recipe Reply

    I would love to see a specifically Ukrainian recipe set. My wife is Ukrainian, but I want to keep this site a secret (for awhile) and surprise her with some authentic Ukrainian meals. She’s told me about some of her mother’s & grandmother’s recipes, etc. So, it would be great if you did that. If you and I missed it or can’t find it forgive me. Reply

    My comment is a general one. I bought an air-fryer. Many of your recipes could be cooked in it. The problem with converting to this method is guesswork i.e. no two recipes for the same dish use the same time/temp and prep. It would be fantastic if someone with your tastes and abilities would tackle this — it is popular enough to deserve a new area of recipes. If you used specific preps people would flock to your webpage just for air-frying techniques. The underlying meaning here is “help!”. Reply

    Thank you for sharing your recipes. I married a Ukrainian 5 1/2 years ago. My family is American, and we have never had a foreigner come into our family until my husband. Needless to say, I don’t know how to cook like his mama. Bless his heart, I know he misses the food so much. I already tried one dish without telling him it was your Ukrainian recipe, he went on and on how he liked dinner so much. I finally told him it was because it was Ukrainian. He was so happy I was trying to make dishes he likes. Thank you again for sharing your families culture. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    thanks for giving us a place to start. I was given your cupcake frosting recipe by a friend and couldn’t help but click around some! I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!

    I do have a question though. My boyfriend and I are doing dates-around-the world this year…Once a month we pick a country and either go to a restaurant or I try to make a traditional dish…after finding your blog, I’m tempted to try something Ukranian or Russian. Do you have any recommendations of what we should try? Perhaps a main dish and a dessert. Easier is better, but any recommendation is welcome.

    Thanks! Reply

    Hi, Natasha,
    I love your website. I feel like it would be a great idea to translate it to Russian and Ukrainian. Any plans to translate? Reply

      No, not at this time. I would recommend google translate if you need it translated. Reply

    I am looking for a recipe for piroshki like the one they have at Russian Restaurants. It is fried and filled with meat or mushrooms or cabbage. The dough is like a savoury doughnut. Hope you can help. Thanks, Ian Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    I just found your blog, and I really like it. I also showed it to my dad who is fan of cooking (we both are) and he really like your recepies too. The thing is that I had to translate them for him. Would you ever consider making some recepies in Russian? Reply

      Welcome to my blog Lily. I don’t see myself making recipes in Russian. If you use Internet Explorer, right click anywhere on the text and select “Translate with Bing”, pick Russian and the entire page will be translated without you doing any of the work. Let me know if you have any more questions 🙂 Reply

    Hi,

    My fav has to be Olivye. But originally I wanted to say Grenky (spelling) or Russian Cherry/Apple Pancakes. Yum.Sadly I can’t eat those anymore.That is why I wrote Olivye.Smiles.

    I also wanted to mention that I make tuna salad once or twice a month. I tried searching your blog but could not find a tuna salad recipe. I make tuna salad with 2 cans of tuna, 1 green onion, 2 eggs, and Vegenaise. Sometimes I make it without the onion. Do you have a tuna salad recipe? Thanks for reading. Have a good day.

    best,

    I love your site and I have to tell you I love to see you giving God glory. Good for you and good for us Christians to have you. I would love to see an authentic Ukraine Borsch recipe. I have tried a few but cannot get it to taste like it should taste. Or maybe it just tasted better when I was in Ukraine? Thank you and good luck with your nursing. I just started my masters program in business, a lot of work. Reply

      Thank you Sue – your words are very encouraging! I posted a Ukrainian Borsch/ Russian Borsche (borsch is borsch 🙂 I’m planning to post something a little easier based on tips some of my readers have posted in the comments, but I still have to develop that recipe. Here’s a link to the recipe for: Borscht. It’s the recipe I make at home and we love it!! It’s hearty and a deep red color – loads of flavor. Hope you enjoy it! God bless you in your masters program. I have a nice list of scriptures on my school notebook that really help me when I’m feeling overwhelmed: Prov 3:5-6, Deut 31:6, Is 41:10, Is 41:13, 2 Tim 41:13, Heb 13:5-6. Reply

        i used to buy cranberry and raspberry frozen juice from winco which we couldnt get enough of it was so yummy. then once we were out at home and wanted some but remebered we had frozen cranberries and raspberries at home so made compot added sugar and it was very good, now our new fav. we only make that kind lol we stock up on cranberries and freeze them around christmas and new yrs thats the only time they have them at stores, so give it a try. Reply

          That does sound good. I love cranberry juice! Never thought about making my own! So raw cranberries + frozen raspberries + sugar would work well? About how much of each for a soup pot of compot? Reply

            March 22, 2012

            well for a large pot (8qt) i use half the bag of cranberry which is 6 0z and frozen raspberry about a handfull, dont need much and about 1 1/2 – 2 cups max. sugar but that is up to everyone cus some like it sweet some not too sweet, but 1 would do 1.5 cups and see how it is to ur taste. also remeber that when compot cools down it becomes more sweet. i just made some today and i didnt have frozen raspberries but i used my rasberry mixed with sugar varenie tastes great as well, just added a little less sugar cus raspberry was already mixed with sugar and i only did 3 tbs of raspberry varenie and u can really taste the raspberry already. cook till color turns to red and cranberries will be popping so be careful so they done burn u. let it cool, drain into a pitcher from all the berries, enjoy! i reserve the berries and eat them lol i never let my cranberries go to waste gotta get all the vitamins i can 🙂
