Craziest disaster: When I made a giant batch of strawberry jam but strayed from my usual trustworthy recipe (this one) and instead, tried out a new one. It contained way too much sugar and was sickly-sweet. Thankfully, after a few days, the sugar calmed down and now it's perfect. Alhamdulillah. 
Lessons learnt: Catching up with old friends is the best. Not only does it give you a chance to catch up with them but it gives you a chance to catch up with you. 
We live such busy lives that years go by without us even noticing. We barely have time to catch our breath before the next job or project begins.
Taking the time out to catch up with someone you haven't spoken to in ages is good for you too. As you talk about what you've been up to and what life is at the moment for you, self-evaluation begins.
So, after you've read this, I hope that you too will reach out to an old friend that you haven't spoken to in ages, and have a good old chat.
You'll be glad you did!
Baking Challenge: A loaf of brioche. And, here is what happened.
Healthy recipe challenge: I was supposed to make hummus which I didn't do. But I have made it before which is a plus. You can see it here.

March, you've been amazing, alhamdulillah. I cannot wait to see what April brings. May Allah make it a source of good for us all - Ameen.
