Moroccan Khobz

I have not traveled in a year and two months. But the worst is not being able to visit Morocco anymore; it holds a very special place in my heart. If you know me you know that my dream as a child was to visit Morocco. Apart from that, do you know what I miss the most? The bread! So, what better way to travel than through a Moroccan bread recipe? Let’s go make some khobz. What is khobz? For those who wonder what khobz means, it means bread. It is Moroccan Darija spelling, not traditional Arabic spelling. However, the…

Simple Italian Dinner

Made a simple Italian dinner last night. Just threw some spaghetti, tomatoes, basil and cheese together. Oh and who could forget the bread? It’s my absolute favorite bread.

The colors look vibrant.

Spinach and Chickpea Salad Bowl

This Spinach and Chickpea salad bowl is a mixture of my favorite ingredients and my mom’s. She loves adding chickpeas, celery, and carrots to her salads. Most of the time she makes it with Romaine lettuce but I prefer to use spinach since it’s a less bitter and filled with nutrition. This salad was different since we mixed in the Moroccan Beet Salad recipe. We basically just prepared and added beets to the salad, nothing big. But to learn how to prepare the beets before using, refer to that recipe. This salad goes perfect with dinner or lunch. I even…
