Personal Update

    Ok, I’ve made some changes in the About Me tab above;  I am now in the nursing program. No longer hoping to get in and I’m praising God daily! The site has suffered some neglect since I began the program, but I feel like I have my footing (somewhat) in the program.

    Between my husband and I, you should start seeing more Russian recipes and Ukrainian recipes posted. One of my upcoming projects is to document my mom’s vegetable garden planning and planting. Anywho, I revamped the entire About the Author page if you decide you want to know more about me, like what my real name is…………..

      Hello Natasha,
      Thanks for taking the time from your very hectic schedule to share your Mama’s delicious recipes. I’m a mom, wife , works fulltime and bakes, cook and decorates cake and I know what being BUSY means. Anyways, I can’t wait to try your Kiev cake Recipe. Goodluck on your Nursing school, my daughter also started her Nursing program this semester, so good luck my dear…God Speed! Many blessings to you and your family. Sandra R.

      Do you live in the Pacific Northwest? I just love this site. I work with an agency who brings children over from the orphanages in Ukraine to America every summer. I visited Ukraine a year and a half ago and fell in love with the people and the children. I just want to stay in touch with you if possible.

      Good luck in the nursing program! 🙂 I’m looking forward to the veggie garden post…have a little one of my own and always wondering what other people plant that’s good 🙂

      Read the entire “about”. I’m so proud of you– how much you’ve learned to cook in the past few years and how consistent you are with your blog!

      Oh, my. You don’t know how many times I have typed in Natalia, and then told myself “No, she presents herself as
      Natasha, that is what I should call her here.” But it never really felt right using the diminutive. So, what is your fathers name? Or don’t you bother with the patronymic?

      May God bless you in your studies, and keep you and your family safe.

        I always thought it was strange to have an abbreviated name that was just as long as my “real” name – Ukrainians are interesting that way! I’ve always been called Natasha. You’re right about the patronymic names, but for some reason or another, I just have a 1 – letter middle initial?? So, I figured I can make up my own, but I never followed through with making one up 🙂
