Welcome to my little space on the Interwebs! My name is Yuliya. I am a Russian girl who’s been living in Boston for the past 10+ years. It sounds like a long time but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Cooking is something that has grown on me over this time as I learned how to cook for myself, attended dinner parties hosted by my friends, and traveled and tasted foods I wasn’t familiar with. Little by little, I discovered the joy of simmering, roasting, and baking. Then finally it all came together when I got cable and found FoodNetwork.
The idea behind this blog is two-fold: keeping all my favorite recipes in one place, and challenging myself to try new foods and techniques. Most of the recipes you find here come from either other food bloggers’ websites, or Bon Appetit magazine, or two of my favorite chefs and food personalities, Anne Burrell and Ina Garten. I will also post some Russian recipes on occasion.
Besides food, I find that two other things move me the most in my life: music and travel. That’s why I created And More page on this blog where I post little bits of inspiration from my travels, and hopefully will soon be able to post my favorite music too.
Thank you for stopping by!
