Each day in Ramadan, I try to think of what to make for iftar. When everyone is fasting, you really want to put that extra effort and make it a really delicious meal. Today, I finally succeeded in making bread! It's kind of a big deal for me because until now I've never been able to make nice fluffy rolls. My previous attempts have always resulted in tough chewy bread. This recipe was a little painstaking but worth it in the end. I only made half the recipe to try it out but they disappeared in no time. I'm going to try adding cheese and garlic to the dough next time.

|This is a recipe I learned from my aunt that is basically mashed potatoes layered with ground beef and topped with toasted bread crumbs.|
|Roasted garlic and herb cauliflower is an MVP in my recipe repertoire.|
|Chocolate mousse for dessert. This is the recipe, it was pretty easy to follow but I used real whipping cream since we don't have frozen whipped topping.|
I'm always looking for new recipes to try. Pinterest usually has some good ones, I just have to start making sure I have everything before starting something or else I end up having to send Dawood to buy something quick like I did today with the whipping cream!
It is pretty tiring on a day like today to make all of that, but it makes me happy when everyone likes it. Anyone have any go to, tried and true recipes for me to try?
