1st Day of Ramadan!
So yesterday was the 1st day of Ramadan and even though I'm 8 months preggo I decided to try to fast anyway. I made it perfectly fine through the first day, it wasn't bad at all (Thank God for Air Conditioning). But with a lot of fasting and a lot of time on your hands comes a lot of preparing yummies as if you'll actually eat everything after breaking the fast (the eyes are usually hungrier than you really are). Anyway, so in the morning I decided to make Baklava and let me tell you that it did turn out pretty yummy. What I love about Baklava is that there's no real rules, meaning you can use your favorite nuts in the reciepe and your desired amount. I love walnuts so that's what I used, I must say though that the hardest part is making the syrup and making sure it's not too watery or too thick. Here's some visuals to get your mouth watering.
