Hello and welcome to Delights of Culinaria. My name is Nadia and I’m a wife to my best friend and mother to four precious children (1 boy+3 girls).

As a child I expressed an interest in cooking and baking at very early age. And growing up in a family of 13 children,I had passion and desire to cook and help my Mother in the kitchen. Watching her and working together then trying it myself at age seven.

I like to prepare traditional family meals and have fun experimenting something new.There’s nothing better than to experiment food with my own or others recipes,especially when the outcome turns out good and you make others happy with your result.

Coming from a Russian culture you will find a mix of traditional Russian/Ukrainian recipes as well as from other world cuisine.I like to cook using fresh ingredients and making everything from scratch. All of the recipes have been tested and approved by family and friends.So take a tour and hope you will enjoy as much as I do.

    wow, you look great for being mother to 4 kids. Good job. I really like your blog, foo recipes, and your stove… Professional stove – my dream…. one comment: for your recipes (especially sweet) can you upload more pictures… Sometimes it helps to see how dough or cream should look like. Thank you
