Natasha's Kitchen - Menu - Sides
I love to cook, and I love to cook for other people, but sometimes it can be difficult to list and describe everything I can make. So, this is the list of everything I currently know how to cook, from the simple to the complex (excluding things that require no effort at all, like hot dogs). This will continually expand as I learn new recipes! I'm happy to make things outside this list too, that's how I learn, this is simply the list of everything I've tried and already know how to do well, including some recipes of my own design.
