Stick-free Halal Corn Dogs

My kids love corn dogs and thankfully I have been able to find some versions that are ok for them to eat.  The problem however is that they’re EXPENSIVE!  I’ve got an almost 8 year old that would and could eat 2-3 corn dogs for a meal. Then there’s that pesky stick that boys always seem to a) see how far they can get into their mouth or b) turn into a weapon while eating OR c) turn into a weapon after eating.  I really just don’t need to have that fight with them.  Instead of breaking the bank and…

Moroccan Flavored “Pizzas”

As promised I continue to delve into the appetizers that I tested out during Ramadan.  This recipe came from a group I’m a part of on Facebook but I adapted a little bit while making.  The recipe is a little in depth but once you get into a good rhythm it goes fast.  You can make the dough and use it right away or freeze it for use later.

Moroccan Fried Rice

This meal was devised out of pure desperation.  I was starving, there wasn’t much in the fridge and I didn’t want to order out.  Luckily I had some random things in the fridge and was able to throw this together.  I don’t think that it would have tasted as good if I would have planned it. Ingredients: 1-2 cups cooked rice 1 egg leftover chicken tajine (anything will work but that’s what I had!) steamed fresh vegetables or frozen vegetables 3 tbsp vegetable oil 1/2 tsp each of cumin, salt, pepper and ginger Directions: In a skillet heat up the…
