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!

This site is amazing!!! So helpful. I am traveling this Nov with my mother and my 4 year old daughter. Do you have a particular tour company you love for Marrakech? and what about specific places to stay in Essaouira? Thank you so much!!!

You can find my Essaouira where to stay suggestions here - https://marocmama.com/10-great-essaouira-family-hotels/ For Marrakech I don't think you really need a tour company but may want to book a guide for one day to get your bearings and understand the city a bit. Then add on other activities that interest you.

My wife is Moroccan and I am a Muslim and would like to live in Morocco how can I move there with my wife to continue my education in Islam and care for my wife

You are eligible for residency as you are married to a Moroccan. You would need to go to the police office in the city you plan to live in to get the list of documents and begin the process.

Hi Amanda, Your blog is great and has helped me get more ideas about where to eat, for my first trip to Marrakesh...and Morocco. I do have a question: I will be traveling with my 83 y.o. mother, and need a nice place to have dinner New Years Eve. We will meet up with a good friend of hers and her daughter who just turned 50. i was thinking of going to La Maison Arabe but they will also have a show that I'm sure my mother will not be able to stay up for. Not to mention that it's rather expensive. I would appreciate any suggestions you can give me. Paola

Hi - NYE events are just starting to trickle out so unfortunately I don't have too many suggestions right now. The ones I have seen are quite expensive. Perhaps you could book the La Maison Arabe and have your mom and her friend taken back to the riad when she's ready and you could return to finish out the night? I do know nightlife in Marrakech tends to go very late at night - often not even starting until 11pm or midnight. Sorry I can't be of more help!

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)
CHICKEN AND COUSCOUS WITH TFAYA
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.
