If you love cooking, but just don't have the time or patience to sit and wait for your dessert to "bake"...then you're in the right place.

Arab desserts do us justice in that arena, since some of the most delicious desserts require zero oven time. Just make sure you have a fully functional fridge and a saucepan, and you'll be good to go.

These 8 no-bake recipes should definitely be on your list the next time you decide to spend some time in the kitchen:
