Red, White, and Blue Chicken Salad for #SundaySupper
Chicken salad is one of my favorite sandwich fillings. But, the only time I make it is when I have leftover chicken! So early last week, when believe it or not, I had some Moroccan fried chicken in the leftover rotation, I jumped at the chance to make chicken... Read more
Moroccan Fried Chicken for #SundaySupper
This weekend is considered the start of summer in the United States.  So, it makes sense that the theme for this weeks’ Sunday Supper is Picnics. It seems like we missed spring and are jumping right into summer considering we’ve only been without snow on the ground the last... Read more
Yucatan Pollo Pibil and Corn Tortillas for #SundaySupper
If it’s even possible to believe, it snowed this week. Not just a little dusting either but 7″ of the white, yucky stuff. The weatherman says that it’s supposed to melt right away but I can’t help feeling depressed. But, today in a celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I’m... Read more

Chicken and Walnut Tajine with Quince Paste
MarocBaba and I always come to a head when I start “playing” with a tajine.  To him there’s no messing with an original.  When I started to put this tajine together he thought it was another attempt on my part to make something new. But, I first saw this... Read more
Chicken B’stila Soup
The first time I went to Morocco, our tour somehow left off the best Moroccan foods.  We ate the same chicken and olive tajine day after day after day.  When we left Morocco I didn’t think much of the food at all. To this day my dad refuses to... Read more
