Can you tell us about yourself, your family, and “Russian Mom Cooks”? What inspired you to start your site?
I’m an ex-computer geek who dove into mommyhood about 4 years ago. As it happens with lots of first-time moms, the whole kids-and-housekeeping thing seemed like a total chaos. Though, after many sleepless nights, broken dishes, and burned dinners, the things started coming together – the kids began sleeping, fragile dishes were replaced with more durable ones, and meals became fairly edible. At some point I found myself ready to get behind the computer and organize all the new recipes. With my technical background and love to take pictures, blogging seemed like a perfect way to do it!
Since you’ve have children, how has your approach to cooking changed?
My approach to cooking changed 180 degrees after the kids arrived– pretty much from eating out and not owning more than 5 utensils to a completely stocked up kitchen with hot dinners on the table and fresh bread baking in the oven. Seeing my entire family gathered for meals is the best reward! Of course it involves a lot of planning. No charts or task lists – I just try to make as many things as possible ahead of time: boil extra quinoa, make a double recipe of our favorite salad dressing, and freeze soup leftovers for a busy night.
What are your kids’ favorite recipes? Which ones do you make the most?
My kids don’t look anything like me, but they surely inherited my carboholic gene. Crepes are their favorite food by far! My American husband managed to memorize the Russian: “Bliny! Bliny!” (pancakes) – kids ask for them so often. They both love helping me, and even the 2-year-old participates in mixing the batter!
What do you feed your kids for breakfast? What are your go-to breakfast meals?
Which food items are constantly on your shopping list?
The Russian in me is always looking for dill. Naturally, every time I’m at the store, even when dill is out of season, it makes its way into my basket along with dairy products and chocolate. However, the majority of our groceries are seasonal berries, fruit and vegetables that we get at local farmers markets.
