I am convinced that the kitchen is the place to go to heal. So, I began to chronicle my little life stories and kitchen adventures in 2010 as a way of expressing my life's ups and downs, always related in some way to food. Kitchen Heals Soul started out with both savory and sweet recipes, but in 2011, I decided to focus on baking because baking stole my heart. I dream of one day opening my own little bakery in Montreal, a city where the more sweet shops, the better. In the meantime, I live, I bake, I photograph, I eat, and I blog (not always in that order). I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I do.
