I’m Olga. Welcome to my kitchen. I am the recipe creator and food photographer at olgasflavorfactory.com.
I want to help make you a more confident cook so that’s why I share detailed, step by step recipes for fresh and flavorful food.
My husband and I have 2 little boys, and I’ve also been a Registered Nurse since 2006, working nights, so I can definitely relate to all you busy people out there who don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen but still want to cook delicious homemade meals from scratch.
You will also find lots of practical tips to make your life in the kitchen much less stressful and time consuming. Even in the midst of your active life, full of responsibilities and roles that you find important, I want your homemaking life to become more peaceful and rewarding, not overwhelming in the least.
So, come on in! I’ve got lots of great food for you to try.

My recipes are greatly influenced by my Belarussian heritage, since I was born in Belarus. Because I came to America with my family when I was only 6 and essentially grew up here, I like sharing both the traditional Eastern European recipes with a modern, Americanized twist as well as lots of other cuisines that I’ve learned to love.
