Slow Cooker Moroccan Beef and Green Bean Tajine
It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a Moroccan meal recipe and I’m sure you’ll love this one. In Morocco we don’t use a slow cooker often, though lately I’ve been adamant that we need one. With lots of work taking both of us out of the house I... Read more
Moroccan Lamb and Fig Tajine
A few months ago we went to have dinner at Ksar Essaoussan in Marrakech. It’s a riad that has been remade into a restaurant, and unlike many riads here, has no rooms for guests – it’s purely somewhere to just enjoy a good meal. Just finding it was an... Read more
#WeekdaySupper Chicken Tajine with Tomato and Onion Jam
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged a tajine recipe. You see it’s not intentional but you may be surprised to know I don’t do a lot of our main meal cooking – especially when it comes to Moroccan food. My sister-in-law who happens to be an amazing... Read more

الدار البيضاء Fish Tajine for #SundaySupper
This week’s Sunday Supper theme is awesome.  I’m so excited!  Everyone is sharing a movie inspired recipe. Even though I loathe it, I wonder if you can guess which movie I’ve chosen? Want to know a little insider secret? There’s no such place as Rick’s Cafe – never was.... Read more
Moroccan Preserved Lemons for #SundaySupper
I can’t believe I’ve never shared a how-to post for preserved lemons.  These are THE ingredient that makes Moroccan cuisine what it is.  A Moroccan pantry simply cannot exist without a jar of preserved lemons. Most often they are used in tajines though you will also find them in... Read more
