Comfort Food…..

Happy New Year everyone!! May it be a wonderful year for all of you and your families! Well back to school, back to life and back to normality for us here in Morocco. It was a very short break for us but we did manage to do a day trip or two and a quick […]

Roast Pumpkin and Cherry Tomato Soup….

 Winter is really taking its time getting here and boy am I not complaining!! We have had a few days of wonderful sunshine but it is getting quite chilly at night, perfect for a light soup for dinner.  My kids love butternut soup, but as our stocks have dried up we had to substitute pumpkin! It […]

Chicken and Fennel Tagine…..

One of my favourite places here in Rabat is the Rabat Medina.  It is a wonderful place to have a stroll about, looking at little odds and ends without the hassle that you get in some of the larger medinas in Morocco. There is one little courtyard that has a trader I have come to […]

Vegetable Tagine….

So Meat Free Monday was a huge success in our house yesterday, following on the beetroot gazpacho for lunch we had a lovely vegetable tagine for dinner! Tagines are really easy to throw together and if you don’t have a tagine, just use a saucepan with a tight fitting lid! You could serve this with […]

A little bit of Spain in Africa…

On the Northern tip of Morocco, just east of Tangier, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean, there is a little piece of Spain called Ceuta, in fact further along the coast there is another one as well known as Melilla. The closest for us is Ceuta or Sebta as it is sometimes known in Morocco. […]

Meat free Mondays, Mausoleums and Mosques….

This morning I had to take our daughter to the paediatrician which is conveniently situated right next to one of Rabats most well known landmarks. As we had some time to pass before our appointment we had a wander around the grounds of the Tour de Hassan before it got packed with people. The two main structures […]
