7 Day Moroccan Food Festival
A Week of Moroccan Date Sauce Creations
It has been a while since I wrote a blog post. I have been cooking some Moroccan food as you will see, but I have been dealing with a constant resistance to start writing. One thing however is very clear. I never stopped cooking, or looking for new recipes and tasting new products. The most exciting part of my life during the last two months is that I’m getting better at photographing food. I love getting feedback from my friends complimenting me on the great job that I’m doing.
Also, I have become more active in social media, and learning a lot through watching other blogger’s videos, and listening to podcasts… but keeping up with social media is a full-time job by itself! If you are a blogger or an online business owner, I don’t have to tell you.
Moroccan Food Week
A few weeks ago, I started planning the Moroccan food week celebration. My mind was just unstoppable with so many ideas and ambitious plans. This however has been one of my problems because I tend to plan too many recipes in a little time period, and I end up overwhelmed. This time, I took a step back and only cooked easy recipes, with a few ingredients, and also give you many different ideas of how to use the Moroccan Date Sauce. Our goal is to provide you with easy recipes to make during the week with just a few steps. We call these our “Easy 1-2-3 Recipes.” It is also our mission to make sure that you have many different recipes to use our products, and not have a half leftover jar in your refrigerator because you don’t know what else to do with it.

Now, let’s go back to talk about food because this is the main reason why you are here. I had mentioned many times before that I’m in love with Moroccan food and hopefully you won’t get tired of hearing the same thing over and over. When Geoffrey told me, we need to add more recipes to the Moroccan Date Sauce, I was really excited and I started to work right away researching traditional recipes from Morocco and re-create recipes adding a special touch of flavors with the Moroccan Date Sauce.
Grilled Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Date Sauce
I selected recipes always having in mind that they must be easy to make. The first day I butterflied and marinated overnight a leg of lamb with the date sauce for a spiced and tasty “Grilled Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Date Sauce”. This was my opportunity to grill the whole leg in my new Indoor Flavor/Searing Grill from Hamilton Beach. This new gadget is the best tool that I found because every time that I have tried to grill inside the house with a pan, I ended up creating a cloud of smoke in the house.
Easy Meatloaf with Moroccan Date Sauce
The next day I decided to cook a comfort food that everybody loves – an “Easy Meatloaf with Moroccan Date Sauce”. For this recipe I didn’t use many of the traditional ingredients but instead I added Moroccan spices, Crème Fraiche and to keep the meatloaf moist and flavorful, I added the Moroccan Date Sauce.
Moroccan Stuffed Acorn Squash with Date Sauce
During that week, I want to have a vegetarian dinner but I had an issue because Geoffrey always wants to have animal protein in his main meal. I took the challenge and I made a yummy, nutty, “herby” and veggie dish with the ” Moroccan Stuffed Acorn Squash with Date Sauce”. The key for a sweet acorn squash is to add the Moroccan Date Sauce and roast with the open side up to help to caramelize the sauce over the meat of the squash.
We already have seven tasty recipes featuring with the Moroccan Date Sauce and each of the recipes can be cooked for dinner or lunch, or for parties as appetizers, main dishes, side dishes or snacks. Below are some of them with a short description of each. We have even more recipes to come soon.
Let the flavors transport you to Morocco with this recipe for a dip that uses our Moroccan Date Sauce. It is a special appetizer to serve with pita chips, cucumber, and olives.
Kefta or Kofta, is the proper name for these Moroccan meatballs. Any way you call them, they are delicious. Made with lamb, or you can substitute beef, mixed with some spices and the Moroccan Date Sauce, you will not go wrong.
Grilled Eggplant with Moroccan Sauce is great as the appetizer. The Moroccan Date Sauce matches perfectly and add another level of flavors with the spiced sauce. This is one of our Easy 1-2-3 Recipes.
