Merry Christmas 2019 + Family Photos

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your families! Thank you for being a part of Natasha’s Kitchen family, for trying our recipes and sharing them with the people you love. This blog was founded in 2009 (10 years ago!) and has grown into a business that is more than we could have asked God for or imagined.

This is our Christmas card this year. I would have sent one to each of you if I could but with 7 million visitors last month, it would have been logistically impossible. Please imagine you just got this in the mail. P.S. I included a ton of sweet family photos below done by our friend and assistant, Alla of In a Dream Photography.

Thank You!!

We are so thankful for each and every one of you. Thank you for your support, love, and encouragement. We have seen incredible growth on every platform and it’s quite exciting and also humbling. Thank you for watching our videos, subscribing to our channels on:

I light up like a Christmas tree when I see you trying our recipes and sharing and tagging them (#natashaskitchen) on Instagram or Facebook. It’s such an honor to know that our recipes are being made and enjoyed in your home.

Exciting Things Coming:

We are building out something exciting. I can’t say yet what it is, but it’s a big deal for us and like nothing we have ever done. My sister Svetlana is heading it up and I can’t wait to share more with you.

Merry Christmas and I hope you have a blessed, prosperous and healthy New Year! 

Imagine I’m opening up our family album right here, just for you. These are the most recent family photos that we used on our Christmas card. My how the little ones have grown!

Merry Christmas everyone! Jesus is the reason for this beautiful Christmas season and makes this holiday incredibly meaningful for us. It is such good news of redemption and love for all people!

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9: 6-7

    Interesting blog that shares beautiful aspects of your life passion and purpose. Just wonder if I could find in here any specifics of your Anchor Point such as your faith in the God you believe and talk about here and there. That would be of great interest to me too.

    Natasha, I have been following your blog for a year now and enjoy it very much. I am the eldest of seven of a Baptist minister and 76 years old. I appreciate your testimony and enjoy your lite heartednesse. It gives me a chuckle in my old age. I decided to set up my kitchen three months ago and do some of your recipes. I live alone near my son. I have cooked all my life and look forward to getting started with your recipes. Of course it will have to be the apple pie for starters. Will send you a picture when I get all set up.
    GOD BLESS
