I'm Alyona the maker of the recipes behind Alyona's Cooking. I started our families food blog in August 2015. Here you'll find a variety of recipes from the Slavic cuisine, Restaurant Copycat recipes to some shared recipes (from others), along with many other posts.

I am married to my wonderful husband Alex and together we have 4 children with one son taking the name to the 3rd generation. With a love for almighty God, full-time homeschooling and a family desire for homesteading someday we strongly desire for our blog to grow even more.

I ❤️ sharing recipes! Cooking has molded many idea's to my cooking experience, so stay tuned because you may find some new favorites, homeschooling tips and perhaps more child easy recipes (I want my daughters cooking skills to grow.) God bless!

Thank you Valya! Indeed I am blessed with both my mothers (husbands mom is amazing too:) and they both inspire me so much in so many different ways. My mother in law currently has a cooking blog too (svetasrecipes.com) so feel free to check out her page. Blessings to your family!

Thank you for all the kind words Lena. I haven’t really dealt much with polenta so I wouldn’t be able to share a polenta recipe at the moment. However should I come across a really good polenta recipe I’ll try to reach out to you:)

You are a super mom!!! I have 4 kids too but I can’t imagine homeschooling them! Seems like it’s impossible to get things done now. I love your blog! Keep sharing your awesome recipes! I’ll be here frequently to try a lot of them out 🙂

Thank you for such a wonderful comment. It takes much sacrifice to homeschool but hoping it will be worth all the labor to see a positive outcome for a Godly character. It’s great to know you love our blog! Hopefully you can find many favorites here, God bless you!

Здравствуйте, Алёна. “Корзинки” по Вашему рецепту в нашей семье делаются лет 50. Мы даже привезли с собой в Америку формочки. Два замечания : при помощи пищевой краски часть крема мы делаем разных цветов, и как финал украшаем корзинки розовыми, зелеными, желтыми цветочками. И второе – Вы предлагаете как начинку клубничный джем. Для пикантности мы кладем что-нибудь более кислое, например черную смородину или кислую вишню. Но это дело вкуса. А так Вы молодец.

Your Chicken Piccata copy cat recipe of Olive Garden is to die for. It is even better than theirs. I God bless! Made it a couple of weeks ago and now I’m going to have to make it again because I can’t stop thinking about it. Thank you for this recipe and it is so easy!

You are welcome Bev! May God bless you!

Just amazing. I am an old bachelor who loves to cook for myself and friends. You recipes are right down my alley. The flavors are wonderful and you use logic to make it easy. The recipes you have chosen are just astounding! If you ever want to try another desert, I’d love a Napoleon Cake recipe that is easier than building an apartment building. God Bless you and your family. And sincerely thank you!

Thank you for the wonderful comment Charlie! That’s very pleasant to know. I currently do have a Napoleon Cake recipe that doesn’t require a custard cream and is more of a petite cake, but if their is something your looking for in particularly, please give me some insight. God’s blessings to you too!
