Sick of Mera, I invited Abrar over.
She brought over not one but two desserts from Mr Baker, which I thought was so sweet and thoughtful! One was these amazing Saffron Rose Water Balls and the other was Pistachio Ice Cream Balls!
Better still, she hadn’t opened either one up and started noshing on them on the way over (unlike Mera, who prefers to paw everything and dribble over the food beforehand, which grosses me out so much).
First, I forced Abrar into the Kitchen (she’s never been) and had her help me make an Apple Crisp and Banana Bread. She was super proud of herself and took a ton of pics afterwards for Snapchat lol She was so cute!
Once again, past midnight (which was usually when I got the urge to “make things” in the Kitchen) I made some more Home-Made Froyo (recipe to come!) this time using Strawberry Jello (which turned everything a cute pink)!
Mini Pancake Cereal was trending (ugh, TikTok) so I decided to hop on that trend!
Initially, I started off with the boxed stuff, like Betty Crocker Cake Mix and Betty Crocker Brownies and so on, except I’d try little hacks on them, for example, poking holes in the Cake and pouring Condensed Milk over top, while it was still fresh out of the Oven, to create a Poke Cake. You can find a ton of other Cake Mix Hacks on YouTube, if you’re interested.
I didn’t like how metallic the boxed Brownies tasted, so I learned how to make them from scratch, tweaking the recipe a little more each time, until I perfected it. I also enjoyed baking regular ol’ Chocolate Chip Cookies from scratch.
Aside from our Oven proving to be very problematic (full deets here), I couldn’t get my hands on a lot of ingredients (reasons mentioned here), for example Brown Sugar (which was needed to be mixed with regular White Sugar) for Cookies and things like that. I ended up having to mix Syrup with White Sugar to create a substitute for Brown Sugar.
