Hi and welcome to my blog! 🙂

My name is Mila and I’m founder of milkandbun blog. I love cooking and especially baking, as well as food styling and photography. When I cook I try to come up with simple and easy, tasty and healthy recipes. Though I make some complicated dishes time to time, like famous Russian pie – koulebyaka.

 I’m Russian, but currently live in Dubai. Many of my recipes I blog about are from traditional Russian cuisine, which for some people seems exotic but for me is pretty normal, and it’s not only borsch and blini.

 I can’t say that I loved to cook when I was younger and lived with my parents; my wonderful mother was a chef in our kitchen, and her pies have been the most delicious in the world for me ever since. But after got married I forced myself to cook. 😀 and eventually fell in love with a cooking and food styling.

Please feel free to like, comment and ask any questions about recipes, ingredients or technique. My pleasure is to help you and share my experience.

I’m open for cooperation with food bloggers, communities, magazines, also restaurants etc. with a mutual benefit. If you’re interested in food styling or photography please contact me for further information.

    Hi Mila!
    Thank you for stopping by our blog and liking our posts, much appreciated.
    You have a nice blog and I am hopeful that at some point you will publish something about how to properly serve caviar and (perhaps!) those that you think are the best Vodka’s out there!
    Take care

    Dearest Mila,
    What a unique blog you have set up, I am loving the beautiful photography and getting to know you through your delicious recipes. Like you I only began cooking after I left my parents home, and it is now a new passion, cooking makes me feel home away from home 🙂
    I am now living in NY where is a large Russian community, and I am enjoying trying Russian foods, especially from countries of the former USSR such as Uzbek/Kazakh foods that have a fusion of Russian/Eastern European/Asian/Middle-Eastern foods.
    So excited to follow you on your cooking adventures 🙂

      Looking forward to chating with you more! 🙂
