About Me


My name is Sofiya Babinov. I live in the great city of Charlotte, North Carolina. It is one of the best places in the world to live and I can not see myself living anywhere else. I am originally from Russia, and I moved to the U.S when I was 5 years old. I lived up North in Westfield, Massachusetts, but have been living down South in Charlotte, North Carolina for most of my life. I am glad I got to experience “the best of both worlds” and apparently (according to many people who have told me) I still have a Northern accent so I guess I am a Northerner at heart. 😉

Family means a lot to me! I am happily married to Michael Babinov, the most wonderful man in the whole world and my high school sweetheart. He is my everything and I am so truly blessed to be his wife for 5  wonderful years now. He has helped me and supported me in making this blog and he even came up with the name for it! I am glad this means as much to him as it does to me because his opinion is important.  Also, We are the proud parents of a great little boy named Abel, and he is currently 4 years old.

I am a Christian, and I love God. We attend First Baptist Church of Indian Trail. We absolutely love this church and recommend for anyone living in/around Charlotte to come visit us some time! I love singing and worshiping our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and am a proud member of our amazing church choir.

Although I have many different hobbies such as hiking, singing, playing piano, karate, tennis, I must say that cooking is my most favorite activity! I love impressing my hubby and son with new and delicious recipes, I also love hosting dinner parties and as all our friends know, we often have guests joining us for dinner or lunch because we enjoy having company over. Cooking is my passion and I am always trying new recipes, It just takes me on an adventure each and every time!

My passion for cooking, blogging, and meeting new people, is what motivated me to start this blog. Although I am not a chef by trade, But actually a Business woman, working in the technology, energy, and banking industry, I really do enjoy cooking and creating recipes/new cooking idea’s. I only share the very best recipes that come from my kitchen to you, and I only share recipes that were a success in my experience. When I just  got married I did not know how to cook at all so I love being able to help all you new cooks, by providing clear and informative recipes and pictures. My goal is to bring you new, tasty, proven tried and true recipes. To make cooking easier for you, and to make the art of cooking a more fun and interesting journey for you.

I hope that these treasured recipes, my family favorites, will become yours too. I will try to make the step by step instructions easy to follow, Along with detailed pictures. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or feedback, please let me know. It is truly a pleasure to blog, and I hope that we can get to now each other better. I would love to hear from you and stay connected.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you visit back soon. Blessings!!! 🙂
