New York Style Cheesecake

This is a Cheesecake recipe that I have been using for a few years. I prefer a more creamy consistency so I limit the amount of flour. If you prefer a more dry-cake like consistency you could add more flour. Regardless, the two most important tips for a perfect cheesecake:  Do not over-mix ingredients.  Adding … Continue Reading


Moroccan Turkey with Mushrooms

My husband, Amine, and I have agreed that each year we will rotate which side of the family we will spend each holiday.  Last year we spent Thanksgiving with my family in New Smyrna Beach, FL and Christmas here in Miami since I had just delivered baby Leif a few days before.  So this year … Continue Reading


Potato & Carrot Soup with Thyme

This is a delicious soup that my mother-in-law makes for Leif when he visits.  It’s delicious and perfect now that it’s getting cold where most of you live.  Why have a processed soup from a can when there are so many delicious recipes that are so easy to make.   The next time you’re grocery shopping … Continue Reading


Puff Pastry Chocolate Cigars

Bass Fish Charmoula


For my husbands birthday we went to his mother’s house where she cooked a delicious Bass Charmoula dish.  As you probably know by now my mother-in-law, Feirouz, is a Moroccan Chef and is also my mentor in the kitchen.  I will typically tolerate tilapia and very seldom do I find other types of fish that … Continue Reading


French Meringue Tart


I absolutely love a light and airy dessert after a heavy meal.   Eating meringue is like eating air, yet it’s sweet and satisfying.   Plus, it’s refreshing on a hot summer day.   We used a mixture of strawberries, raspberries and  blueberries; but you could use whatever fruit is in season, or on sale. Tart Ingredients: … Continue Reading


Vegetable Tagine


Another recipe from my mother-in-law, Chef Feirouz.  This is my first experiment with a vegetarian tagine; typically tagines are made with beef, lamb or chicken.   Our family is anything but vegetarian but when you’re in the mood for something tasty and light veggies typically do the trick.  We served this as a main dish but … Continue Reading


Sweet Potato Tagine with Chicken


I told you before that my mother-in-law is a chef.  This is one of Chef Feirouz’ many delicious recipes.  Please don’t let the list of ingredients intimidate you, this recipe is pretty easy to make. If you don’t have an extensive spice rack all of the spices should be easily found in your local grocery … Continue Reading
