Hello and welcome to my food blog! I cannot express how excited I am to be able to share my recipes with you!
I got married about three years ago to my amazing husband Dmitri. I have a toddler boy named Sammy, which is the most energetic fun loving child, and a baby girl named Emily, which is just the sweetest angel you will ever meet. I am blessed with these two gifts I can call my babies. I am from Kyrgyzstan and my husband is from Moldova. Our parents are also from Russia and Ukraine so we just have a huge mix of European foods in our household! Both our mamas make some seriously delicious meals whenever our families get together and I’m fortunate enough to have learned from them.
A couple weeks before our wedding we were taking a walk by the waterfront, and we talked about a skill we wished we could have. I told him I wished I knew how to cook better, and that I felt bad for him because I can’t cook like his mother or mine. I loved cooking ever since I was little, with my little notebook of recipes. I knew how to make a few classic dishes, but wasn’t very confident in my cooking abilities. I began to spend more time in the kitchen as time went on, and started learning how to use everyday ingredients to make delicious family meals. We lived in apartments next to a lot of our friends, and whenever I wanted to test out my recipes I would make a batch full and give them out to our friends and family. People started asking for recipes, and asking how I made my food, and that’s when I came up with the idea of a food blog.
I love the idea of sharing some of my families favorite home goods with yours. I hope these step by step photo instructions will really give you the confidence and ability to step out of your comfort zone and cook some amazing meals for your family!
