Although it’s at the very top of my travel wish list, I have never been to Morocco. Neither has Karen nor Todd. So we were beyond excited when our friends at Project Bly brought Morocco to us last week. If you’re not familiar with this oh so inspiring online destination and you are as consumed by wanderlust as we are, I would seriously consider bookmarking their site immediately! The team at Project Bly travels the world, searching for the world’s best markets and most far flung artisans, to curate rotating collections of objects, textiles, art and jewelry – all while allowing us to live vicariously through their journeys in the form of photography and video. Back to our Moroccan feast. Moroccan chef Zouhair Karam put together a delightful spread of chicken tagine, salad, and mint tea to be enjoyed with sweets, dried fruits and nuts. Berber rugs, silver tea trays, bread baskets, vintage tea pots, tea glasses and tadelakt bowls were laid out beautifully. For an brief but lasting moment, we were all transported to Marrakech. And it was lovely. Stay tuned for some Moroccan inspired recipes coming to you this week!

DIY Heart Shaped Tea Bags
What better to follow up a slew of Super Bowl themed recipes than with a tutorial on how to make heart shaped tea bags for Valentine’s Day?! “Grrrrr” to “awwwww,” we’re a culture of extremes – what can I say? So now that you’ve fully transitioned into a sweet and romantic mindset (what beer nachos?), let me walk you through how to make these adorably easy tea bags. Because we all know a spot of tea is like a hug in a cup.
DIY Cocktail Station
I’m always looking for fun new ways to bring cocktails to the party. The problem is, no one wants to get stuck mixing everyone else’s drinks all night. So I decided to channel my former catering days, and put together this self-serve cocktail station for our little Thanksgiving get-together. The secret is thinking of a cocktail that is simple to make, so that your guests can help themselves.
