Picking flowers and baking them into cookies is literally the perfect way to live out your peak cottagecore lifestyle. According to Alexis Nicole, TikTok’s resident Black forager, magnolia petals taste kind of like ginger. This spring recipe is a play on gingersnaps, and I will definitely be making these just as soon as I can find some magnolias…

Chaheti got this recipe from her mother, the queen of dal. Not only is this dish absolutely delicious, it’s also super easy to prepare, especially if you’ve never made dal before. You can play with the spices depending on your tastes and how much work you feel like doing. This dal is one of those perfect spring recipes for nights when it’s still a little chilly out.

5. Persian/Iranian Inspired Latte

You can drink this hot or cold, in the morning or after dinner, there is no wrong way to enjoy Evangelo’s lovely Middle Eastern latte. The prep is super simple, basically just a lot of stirring. Since we can’t amass cafés just yet, get a fancy glass and ice cubes and enjoy your refreshment outside.

Gnocchi lessons from Enrico’s dad:

  1. Russet potatoes only. Anything else is wrong. 
  2. You wanna eat lumps? No, so mash the potatoes to butter. 
  3. You don’t need a fancy board to shape the pasta. Just take a fork, put your thumb in the middle of the dough, and roll. 
  4. You gotta heavily salt the water. 
  5. Love slaps are a necessary part of the cooking process.

I am not in Disney World nor do I expect to be at any point in the near future, but thanks to Élise I can at least eat like one of my favorite Disney characters. Being locked inside has really made me feel closer to Rapunzel. Now I just have to play guitar, knit, make candles, and wonder when my life will begin.
