    That's certainly better than my first attempt at cookies all the way back in year 8/9. Good work. Hope they were tasty. :drool:
    Does that mean you're an expert cookie maker now?!
    Thank you! They're lush, I had two with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Diabeeeeeetus incoming. ;_;

    Apologies for the late reply :lol:

    I think may help to discuss all of these issues with your parents :yes: Pressure isn't good for anyone.

    Are they particularly strict or would they be willing to compromise?
    It's okay, you're free to reply whenever.

    They're rather liberal in some aspects and illiberal in others. I've discussed the marriage pressure with them. They're not keen on marrying me off right now - they're waiting for me to graduate with my BA and eventually do a masters. They're also very encouraging about me finding a partner for myself.
    It's just all the gossipy aunts/relatives/grandmas who won't shut up about it!
    I will eventually discuss the religion thing once the time comes. I mean, they're gonna start to suspect something's up when I keep saying no to all the suitors. Whoops.

    No, because that was the one and only time I attempted cookie-making. :lol: Wish I was, though.

    I bet you're not even sorry. :sogood: :coma:

    Awwww, no, don't be disheartened! I followed Laura Vitale's recipe from YouTube - definitely worth trying and it doesn't even take long.

    Sounds pretty reasonable to me

    Such is human nature :lol:

    Religion isn't really my thing either :five: And my family doesn't really care, which is certainly a good thing

    Hope it turns out well :hugs:

    Nah, learning to cook can wait until yooni. Ready-made cookies it is, until then!

    Wuuuut, I swear we are the same person?! My dad goes to Bangladesh every couple of months too! And he brings back my grandma's achar, pithas, lots and lots of eggplant/deshi limes, etc. :eek: :eek: :eek:
    Mr Naga is just bae. :daydreaming:
    Hahaha that's just how we all roll it seems :p:

    Deshi limes are actually the best. Fresh naga is amazing too! Even the smell is potent, I always used to wonder as a young child why my Mum used to get giddy over things coming over but now I understand
