Pumpkin Soup

I have been on a soup kick for the last couple of weeks.  So when I opened my cupboard and noticed a can of pumpkin leftover from making pumpkin pies, a light bulb went off.  I have never made nor have I ever tasted pumpkin soup until today.  This soup in extremely easy to make, … Continue Reading


Tilapia with Saffron Risotto

This was a creation of my husband, Amine.  I was only in the kitchen to cook the rice, chop the ingredients and clean up the mess.  Amine is a wonderful cook; however, the kitchen always looks like a tornado hit it when he’s finished.  But we have an agreement that when he cooks I will … Continue Reading


Roasted Bell Peppers & Tomatoes

Since I am doing my best to watch what I eat while surrounded by all of the tempting holiday treats I decided to roast up some bell peppers and make a salad that I can snack on guilt free.  This roasted bell pepper & tomato salad can be served as an appetizer, a side dish … 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

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


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
