No-Bake Cake Ideas

My friend loves cookies: she can’t walk past the aisle in the store. She buys these bright packages, believing that she will eat everything. Of course, something always stays, so she discovered many no-bake cake recipes from cookies. Those are the most delicious quick desserts I’ve ever tried.

It turns out that cookies are not only good for tea drinking. Of course, I’ve heard of cookie-based cakes like tiramisu. But these treats are made from ordinary crackers or oatmeal cookies!

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
