Pintrest is such an addicting site, one that I avoided for years. My mom, sister and others had gushed about how wonderful it was but I just couldn’t bring myself to go onto it. The reason for the avoidance is because when it comes to websites like that I have a very addictive personality and I knew that I could waste hours browsing. Well this year I signed up and all I can say is “Why did I wait so long!?” I have found so many ideas on the site, both recipe wise as well as travelling and crafting inspiration. Every once in a while I find an exceptional gem that really gets me excited and Dinners and Dreams is one of those gems. Nisrine Merzouki is a Moroccan expat who lives in the US. Not only are her recipes enticing but with the documentation of her recent trip back home I am even more anxious then ever to hurry up and go visit Morocco. I love North African food and her blog is a celebration of the food of her homeland so please show her some love and check out her wonderful blog.
Usually I find that I have to slightly alter a recipe to my taste or because of ingredients that I have on hand but Nisrine’s recipe is perfection as is. Both my husband and my daughter loved these delicious mushrooms and I had to fight them to save me some as I finished the rest of the meal.
