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.

    So nice to “meet” you! And you do a mighty fine job with photography yourself! Everything looks fabulous. I am especially intrigued that you are from Russia, my sister served a mission for our church there so I’m excited to surprise her and make one of your traditional dishes! I’m sure you are having a wonderful experience in Dubai as well. Looking forward to following along, trying some of your recipes and getting to know you better! xx Jamie

    I look forward to cooking some of your Russian recipes. I was just away to buy a Russian cookbook then I stumbled upon your page. I was like you, not loving cooking when I was younger but cooking because I had to. For me that’s changed too and I love it. Looking forward to following your food journey.
