I've been chopped!!!!!! Thank you to everyone who has voted for me!! For those of you who have no idea what I'm taking about I've spent the past few weeks in a blogging competition called, Project Food Blog. In case you missed them my first entry was What defines you as a food blogger?; my second entry was Menudo (A traditional Mexican beef tripe soup).

My entry for the third competition was a Moroccan Dinner Party. It would have went a little something like this . . . . I have been fascinated with Morocco ever since I saw Casablanca as a teenager. My mom, who was born in the Netherlands and lived in the Netherlands, France, Brazil, and US always said that, "Morocco is a magical place and the only country I've been to five times." If I could go anywhere in the world, Morocco would be my number one. When faced with Project Food Blog's number three challenge which asks bloggers to "... channel new and exotic flavors for a luxurious dinner party menu. Voters will pick which feast they'd like to RSVP to". I didn't have to think. I would make a Moroccan feast.

I was sad to go but I did find a new love and appreciation for Moroccan food and lifestyle. That's why this week my blog is dedicated Moroccan cooking. I'll be posting recipes from my Moroccan dinner party all week. And if I do say so myself, the dishes were delicious :) I'm posting the menu below so you know what you can look forward to seeing.
