Friday Food - A Yummy Equation



Daniel and I decided to get a tagine, handmade in Tunisia, and a beautiful Moroccan cookbook for Valentine's Day this year. We like getting gifts for each other we'll both love and keep using.

Cooking in a tagine is very different and actually quite soothing if you have time, as you can only cook with it over low heat.

Here, we tried the traditional Chicken Tagine with Green Olives and Preserved Lemons, a delicious meal, especially served on fluffy couscous!

Can you tell we love to cook and eat?!?


  1. That's it......I'm coming to your house to EAT!!!!
    Not only does the cooking utensil LOOK wonderful, but the product it cooked looks delictable!
    Enjoy! ♥♥♥

    Anne.....eating a cold cinnamon bun.....SOB! :D

  2. sounds yummy, did you save me some???

  3. I saw this on one of the other blogs I read over in France, I believe FrenchVillageLife Or French Less in France. I find that very interesting, and did not know that you could purchase one of those in the states. She had a great recipe too. The food sounds very yummy, and might be cool to try!
    I saw on your profile that you live in Savannah. One of my absolute favorite places to visit. We were there in late November as we always go down to get fresh off the boat shrimp! We stock up till the next visit sometimes twice a year.
    Bye for now!

  4. What a fascinating cooking device, I had to look it up and read more about it. The meal you created in your tagine sounds eat the best foods.:)

  5. What a great Valentine's Gift to be able to share together. I love Moroccan-style meals, so I'll have to check out that cookbook. I'm always so impatient with things, so I don't know if I can control myself waiting for it to slow cook! :) But I have to say that meal looks mighty good! Theresa

  16. Ugh! This was not a good time to visit you. It is late, I am tired and exhausted and I have not eaten. The only thing readily available is a slice of raisin bread. Now my tummy hurts! Hahahaha! Oh Silke, I should remember that Friday is food day here. Tsup!
