Korean Barbecue Stir Fry with Barley
Yesterday was officially the first day of winter but winter is an elusive thing here in Morocco. There are so many things I forgot about that I had a little bit of “winter shock” when we were in Germany last weekend. In Marrakech we’re blessed to still have long... Read more
Afghani Chicken Pulao
Earlier this week I made an Afghani inspired chicken pulao dish that was a delicious hit.  Truth be told, before we moved to Washington DC in 2007, I had never eaten Afghani food. I had never met a person from Afghanistan. Like many people our only connection to the... Read more
Chicken Korma Pizza
 Cheese. I really miss delicious, melty, gooey, cheesy goodness. The kind that tops pizza or a casserole. Enough to get a big bite and taste the salty, creamy goodness. When you order a pizza in Morocco it’s got just barely enough cheese on top to be recognizable and a... Read more
#WeekdaySupper Chicken Tajine with Tomato and Onion Jam

Easy Chicken and Dumplings
Soup is a hard sell in our house. But thick, creamy stews, well they get eaten up right away.  Chicken and dumplings is not a meal I grew up with but my sister first made for us about a year ago.  I love it, my kids love it, even... Read more
MarocBaba LOVES chicken wings. Whenever we go out somewhere, he often orders them and I cringe at the price. In most places, the price breaks down to about $1 a piece. Chicken wings are some of the cheapest cuts of meat out there! So, instead of paying through the... Read more
