A Fearless Guide to Food and Travel

A regular feature that I have started is the sharing of guest posts.  This is a great way to get new readers for your own blog and to give MarocMama readers some new reading material too.  Some ideas for guest posting;


  • Have you tried one of my recipes?  Why not share your story with my readers!
  • Do you have your own Moroccan or Moroccan-esque recipe to share?
  • Have you visited Morocco – have travel tips, suggestions, ideas, reflections?
  • Do you like to read books relating to Morocco – why not share a book review!  (Check out my list here)
  • Is there a particular cultural or religious insight that you might share?
  • Have you taught about Morocco in your homeschool?


  • Have you recently taken up eating whole foods or organic foods? Tell your story!
  • What are your experiences with food diplomacy?
  • How do you think we can use food to bridge divides between people?
  • Have you traveled internationally, what are your experiences?
  • Do you live in a bi-cultural home?  Share your stories of struggle, multi-culturalism and triumph!

If you are a company interested in placing links in exchange for providing me “free” content, please read and contact me about a sponsored post.  I love to share guest posts, from other bloggers, not as an advertising or linking platform.  Please email (amandamouttaki at gmail dot com) or tweet me with any questions you have or to participate here!

    Hi, just wanted to share this recipe with you. You quoted a post on my topic on visa journey about Ramadan just around the corner. (foreverwaiting is my name on VJ)


    3 Tbs olive oil
    1 lb. chicken
    1 med onion
    1 tsp ginger
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 tsp turmeric
    pinch of cinnamon
    salt to taste
    1/2 tsp Ghee butter
    pinch of saffron

    Place all ingredient in stock pot and simmer 10 min. Add 1 pint of water cover and let cook until tender. Put aside when done. The sauce left in the stock pot will be use to pour on of chicken and couscous.


    I don’t have the exact measurement for couscous as I just know how to make it from my husband’s mothers way of showing me. If you have a couscous recipe with exact measurements, you can add it here to show others.


    2 Med/Large Onions ( I used one really large onion) for this.
    3 Tbs olive oil
    1/2 cup raisins
    2-3 Tbs Sugar
    4 Tbs water
    1 tsp. Cinnamon
    1 tsp ginger
    1 Ghee Butter or Smen
    pinch of saffron

    Cook onions in non stick skillet with olive oil until soft. Add all the ingredients and cook until tender about 45 minutes on low.

    To assemble this dish…

    Couscous on bottom, place chicken on top of couscous, pour remaining sauce or until you feel you have enough sauce to your desire. Spread TFAYA on top of Chicken.

    I love the sweetness and saltness of this dish together. One of my favorites for sure.
