My favorite slow cooker recipe: Sweet BBQ Pork Ribs: sweet, fall-apart pork ribs, crispy on top, great for any occasion. These don’t need marinating, the slow cooker does the trick😍 (Recipe on olgainthekitchen.com ) #olgainthekitchen #porkribs #slowcooker #bbqribs #grilled #porkmeat #slowcookermeals #instagood #tohfoodie

{NEW RECIPE} Pumpkin Knots: slightly sweet, moist and light texture, golden in color with a mild pumpkin flavor. These knots will complete any breakfast or afternoon tea. The dough texture of these really remind me of mom’s Ukrainian Pumpkin Bread, light as a feather that you cannot stop eating! 😍 (Recipe on olgainthekitchen.com or click 👉 @olgainthekitchen for direct link) #olgainthekitchen #pumpkin @bobsredmill #bakingwithbobs

Today for lunch, we had Creamy Potato Soup. This yummy dish came from @thereciperebel . Instead of instant pot (which I don’t have), I used slow cooker, high 4 hours. Did few adjustments such as replacing celery with cucumber as no one likes celery around me😬, added some fresh green onions and dill for garnish. This soup is a winner💕. It’s different than most Ukrainian soups I make and we absolutely loved it! Thanks #thereciperebel I will be making it again!😘😋 #olgainthekitchen #potatosoup #instagood #soup #slowcooker #lunch #foodblogger #delicious #todayfood #forkyeah #spoonfeed #yahoofood #pinterest #feedfeed #feedyoursoul #dailyfoodfeed #foodbeast

Morning & happy Thursday!😊 Our gardening days are over in WA. The weather dropped down below 40 during nights, and I had to take all of our tomatoes off the bushes, green or red. Yesterday, my mom was talking to her sister in Ukraine and she mentioned they do this recipe they like to call Pizza Salad. They marinate for an hour, cook and store into jars for up to a year. They use these on homemade pizza instead of sauce (like we do here). I have to admit, this recipe is very flavorful, strong, sweet and sour - all in one and I cannot wait to try this on my homemade pizza. When I heard her saying that they add cucumbers and carrots to pizza..I was like “cucumbers? carrots?” But then it all made sense!😋 When I was filling these jars, I did one spoon into jar, one into my mouth 😄 just kidding! Don’t do that, eat from a plate or your pickling will get bad quickly on shelves. This actually reminds me a lot of the #autumn salad I have on my blog (olgainthekitchen.com). I’ll share the recipe later. Got some baked goods to share first!💓 #olgainthekitchen #pizza #pizzasauce #fallrecipes #pickling #instagood #foodblogger #canning #fall #eeeeeats #foodie #vegetables #vegetablesalad

Tonight for dinner, I’m making pasta with roasted #tomatoes🍅 spiced up with #pecorinoromano cheese, #pinenuts #scallions and few other secret ingredients 😊 this recipe still in testing progress, but was inspired from few Italian recipes! It’s totally different from our usual dinner recipes!😋 #olgainthekitchen #food #tomatoes #pasta #cooking #dinner #lunch #thefeedfeed #food52 #tastespotting #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #thekitchn #dailyfoodfeast #spoonfeed #inmykitchen #todayfood #feedyoursoul #buzzfeedfood #recipes #italianrecipes #pecorinocheese

A little over year ago, I discovered @dayspringcards . It’s a great store where you can get so much beautiful and thoughtful things. My planners, notepads, calendars, mugs, kids coloring books and coloring pages..everything comes from there. They constantly have new stuff in and the designs are just dreamy💓. I wanted to share with you guys what I ordered with them last week (they deliver really fast). These are great presents for upcoming holidays. Any mom, sister, a friend would love a mug, a notepad or a recipe keeper. Kids Bibles and coloring pages (they come in smaller sizes with stickers included): any kid would love that, at least in my family😍 Kids love coloring; the whole hands-on process. Im planning to include these in my presents this year and order more for Christmas presents! Jump onto their site and order before it’s all gone😊!!#olgainthekitchen #dayspring #ad #organization #presents #holidays #christmaspresent #christmas #thanksgiving #christian #deals #getorganized #kids #planning #liveyourfaith #faithillustrated #faith

Kids are still sleeping and I’m making these #breakfast #croissant sandwich! Flavorful, fulfilling, cheesy (the way we like these), quick and easy💖 (Recipe on the blog at olgainthekitchen.com) #olgainthekitchen #pastry ... ... ... ... ... #sandwich #salad #healthyfood #feedyoursoul #pinterest #f52grams #instagood #bhgfood #eeeeeats #buzzfeedfood #feedfeed #instafood #food #foodblog #foodoftheday #foodgawker #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #recipes #instayum #foodblogfeed #nomnomnom #foodshare #foodphotography #tasty #todayfood

It’s that time again! Buying pounds and pounds of natural pork meat, grind & freeze to always have on hand for hundreds and hundreds meatballs to come!😋 An easy process I’ve been using for years & it completely satisfies me! 💓With #thanksgiving and #christmas coming up, this would be a huge time saver. And seriously, it’s not Ukrainian Christmas if pork meatballs are missing at a table!😬💗 (Recipe on olgainthekitchen.com or click 👉 @olgainthekitchen for direct link) #olgainthekitchen #groundpork #freezerfriendly #food #mealprep

Farmer’s Cheese Pancakes (#syrniki ) for #breakfast this morning! Very easy, favorite in our home! Kids love these with sour cream on a side. My younger is 16 months and has 3 teeth on top and 2 on the bottom and these are so easy to just squeeze in your mouth so it’s a perfect #babyfriendly breakfast for him and delicious calories for the rest of us😜!(recipe on blog at olgainthekitchen.com) #olgainthekitchen #farmerscheese #delicious #instagood #foodie #recipes #easyrecipes #kidfriendlyfood #foodblogger #tasty

My fridge is deserted!😳 I don’t remember EVER having my fridge this empty. Since the day I married (almost 6 yrs ago) my fridge was aways crying from overflow😄 and as I realized today...it’s a miracle💓and you know what? I don’t hate it!😍I haven’t been grocery shopping for 2 weeks as of this morning. In the past I would make 3-5 trips per week, then I switched to Saturday only, spending minimum $100 each trip just for groceries after using coupons. I love shopping with coupons, saves so much $$$. I feel guilty paying full price when I know there’s a coupon available for that item😬. I love this new miracle for few reasons. 1. 💵💸 had been saved. Not a dollar, but hundreds..maybe thousand?🤦🏻‍♀️ 2.. We emptied our freezers (yes freezers. We have another same size and brand refrigerator in garage + that tall, rectangular freezer). Both are halfway empty in the freezer section compared to doors barely closing😂. What we ate these 2 weeks? Tomatoes, cucumbers from our garden + other herbs (fresh salads), frozen homemade meals that I made and froze, fresh baked goods...I feel like I accomplished something huge👏🏻 Over past few months, I kept running into articles about decluttering your life, I felt like they were pointing fingers directly at me🙄😄 so aside from grocery shopping, I’ve been donating bags and bags of clothing, throwing away stuff that had not been touched in years and I can finally breath. Empty shelves in closets mean you can just relax, do nothing whole day and not feel guilty about it; it feels like I completed hundred things off my to-do list, and I feel good. Nope, I feel great, I feel fantastic!😊 #olgainthekitchen #organization #fridge #declutteryourlife #goals #declutter #organizedhome

In addition to my final testing of #pumpkin knots (on story), today was all about testing new recipes. Top 2 are puff pastry filled with chicken and other goodies (slightly different), bottom left are baked mashed potatoes with meat, bottom right - baked pasta with meat. I guess that’s breakfast, lunch and dinner for today!😄😋 #olgainthekitchen #recipetesting #homemade #appetizers #instagood #foodie #foodblogger
