April Fools And My Moroccan Vegan Mimuna!

Why hello there my little Maniacs!

So it’s the beggining of April, and that means….APRIL FOOLS!
I just looooove April fools!
This year I uploaded a video to my channel saying, well, just watch it ans see what I said 🙂

I especially filmed myself with my phone, didn’t edit or nothing so that it’ll look more authentic.
A lot of you noticed that it’s a joke, but a whole lot more of you guys wrote to me such great comments and emails that really warmed my heart.
Cause even if it was done as a joke, everything I said there was true. I really am not happy with how things are going, and the mean comments really get to me sometimes.
My channel and works occupy most of my brain capacity everyday and youtubing has become an enormous part of my life and I would like to receive responses that match my efforts.
That’s why I keep my mail connected to my account so I can see every new comment [even if I don’t always comment back] and every time I’m notified I have a new subscriber it really makes my day.
So thank you my little Maniacs for all of your support and love!
Keep on sharing and liking and commenting!

On to the next one 🙂
On April first was also a huge holiday for us Jews that came from Morocco, called Mimuna.
It’s a holiday that marks the end of Passover and it has many traditions.
Basically we have guests at our homes and we make a ton of sweets so we can all have a sweet year, and we make a dish named Mufleta, which is made out of fried dough. It must be the yummiest thing ever on exist on planet earth.
I haven’t been to a Mimuna in so long, so I decided to make one in my own flat and invite some friends, and it was the first time I made Mufleta by myself!

That’s all folks!
What did you do on April Fools? 
Let me know in the comments bellow 🙂
See ya next time
LOVE♥

Snow In Israel – Winter 2013!

Sup Maniacs 🙂
Guess what?
It snowed in Israel! 
Well, there are places in Israel that snow every winter, but in my city – Jerusalem, it doesn’t snow every year and that why its such a HUGE event for all of us!
It’s funny, because it doesn’t snow frequently we don’t really know how to handle our normal lives when it snows, so the public transportation stops, schools are off, all the stores are closed, and a snowy day becomes a holiday in no time 🙂
So in my snowy holiday yesterday, I stayed home cause the university was closed.
Alina imas [check her channel here! http://www.youtube.com/user/alinyanart], my best friend and flatmate, made us vegan breakfast with a vegan Shakshuka [Israeli food that usually uses eggs] and I made us vegan tomato soup and Moroccan porridge named Lchshu, which is a traditional dish in my family to cook when it snows [I’m half Moroccan half Bulgarian, which means my ancestors came to Israel from these countries], cause it has so much garlic and Coriander, that it makes it the perfect natural antibiotic medicine for the cold and snowy days.
But off course we didn’t stay eating all day at home when it’s snowing! 
We went outside to play like little kids 🙂
We took some pics and we made a snow cat!
