Thank you for visiting my corner!
My name is Ivelina. I was born in a very small, but disproportionally to its size beautiful country Bulgaria. I spent all my young life there. I moved with my family to Canada, where I discovered the rural and virgin beauty of this country in some corners of its geography. It is an amazing, charging inspiration every where.
I am a true believer in already clichéd, overused thought "The Beauty will save the world" and try to find it everywhere - in a meaningful word, in a silent sigh, in the rising sun, in a blooming flower, in a singing bird, in a warm touch, in a golden star, in angry wind, in a drop of pouring rain, in a shared piece of chocolate, in sadness and in happiness, in disappointment and in gracefulness. I keep my eyes open and all my senses scan constantly the world for inspirations. And they are everywhere. But the most inspiring of all is the Beauty.
I am a Food Scientist and a food lover. Cooking for me is an art and I believe, that food shouldn't be just eaten, but savoured - every ingredient has a story to tell. My strong and the most loved food is the chocolate. This is my specialty, I know how to make chocolate, that is why I appreciate it very much. Chocolate is a delicate product and it requires significant skills to be made properly. It is like a poem - comes from the heart.
There is one food I love more than chocolate - my family. My two crazy beautiful girls and my husband are food for my inspiration. They are my heart work and my soul art. I am blessed!
I love what I do. I love doing it.
Besides cooking, I love traveling and hiking. I love sewing and embroidering, knitting and crocheting. I like crafting cards and decorative elements. I also run the blog "With a Needle and Thread"
I love poetry.
I wish I was born in 50s. I like vintage style. I love the elegance of the life from this period.
The world is my home. And there is no better place, than home for me.
