A Russian Welcome ...

Hi everybody and thanks for visiting my brand new Loretta's Kitchen blog. I thought I would share some of my favourite recipes with you all, and would love to hear any feed back or suggestion from you . As a foodie I think it's wonderful to be able to share recipes from around the world and hope that this blog will inspire others to cook beautiful home made food made with real whole foods and real flavour.

All of my recipes have a you tube video available so you can see step by step how to make them (I always find it easier when I see somebody make a recipe rather than just reading one), and I have a facebook page you can follow where I put heaps of handy tips at

So... on to the recipes:

I'm going to start my Blog with one of my favourite's
