Welcome to Russian Bites! My name is Elina. I live in Boston, Massachusetts but I was born in Moldova, an Eastern European country formerly part of the Soviet Union. Russian food is my comfort food. I grew up eating it and still enjoy it at my parents’ house. I began cooking about 2.5 years ago and have come a long way in the kitchen. I’ve documented hundreds of meals on my blog Healthy and Sane yet for some reason have shied away from trying to recreate my childhood favorites myself. This blog will document my journey of going back to my roots… in the kitchen! I hope to open up the world of Russian food to all of you.
