Hello there, fellow home cooks, food lovers, and dinner party entertainers! I'm Julie Chelombitko, and I'm thrilled to invite you into my little corner of the internet. If you're someone who wants to make meals into a creation and wants to make dinnertime a cherished moment, you've come to the right place. Here I will share recipes that are simple to make for every day yet fancy enough for entertaining.
Hello! Im Julie Chelombitko,
A little bit about me and who I am. I migrated from Ukraine with my parents at the age of 4. A lot of my recipes have been influenced by my Ukrainian background so you will notice occasional Ukrainian recipes or flavors inspired from Europe. I married my husband Vitaliy in 2011 and that’s when my cooking journey began. I have 3 beautiful daughters. We live in the beautiful Evergreen State of Washington.
I've always been passionate about creating recipes that combine quality ingredients, creativity, and love. For me, cooking isn't only about nourishing the body; it’s also about nourishing the soul. It’s a way to serve the people around you, your family or friends, it’s also a way to make someone feel loved and appreciated. I also enjoy taking everyday ingredients and transforming them into something extraordinary, something that brings people together and creates unforgettable memories.
Why entertainment is important to me
My favorite way to show my love to the people around me is by serving them beautiful meals. A well-prepared meal is a work of art, a symphony of flavors, that can elevate any dinner into a special occasion. I'm here to share recipes, techniques, and tools that will make you confident in the kitchen and your dinner parties special.
But it's not just about special occasions. I understand that some weeknights call for a little extra effort to turn an ordinary dinner into something extraordinary. That's why my recipes are designed to be simple enough for anyone to follow yet flavorful enough to make it look and taste special.
