I did an eating tour in Istanbul, Turkey, and I highly recommend it. We spent about five hours walking through the old part of town and eating like the locals. This is me pretending to cook the kebabs that I then devoured.
Place cranberries in food processor and process for about 2 minutes or until finely chopped. Combine the sugar mixture, cranberries, and vodka in a large bowl. Pour into clean jars with lids and let sit in a cool, dark place for 3 weeks, shaking every other day (or whenever you remember).
Strain through a cheesecloth lined sieve into a bowl and discard solids. Pour into clean jars or bottles, and sit back and admire!

SERVING SUGGESTION – Cranberry Cosmopolitan – Place crushed ice in a cocktail shaker. Add 1/2 cup cranberry liqueur, 1/4 cup Cointreau, and 2 tablespoons lime juice; strain into martini glasses. Yields 2 cocktails.
Besides the fact that every Morrocan restaurant is like eating in a mosaic castle, the appetizers they provide foreigners gives a smorgasbord of what Morrocans eat daily. They would typically only have one of these dishes in a slightly larger portion for their meal. Because I’m such a foodie, I ate everything pictured above just as my appetiser.
The dishes are familiar but different. Squashes I know well are cooked with rich Morrocan spices that I’ve never heard of before made the eating experience very enjoyable. I fell in love with Morrocan food, and now that I’m back home, I hope to learn some of their cooking techniques.
If you’ve never tried this cuisine, I highly recommend it.
You can find Halo Top ice cream in Whole Foods, and it’s definitely a brand I’d recommend trying. I always find there are too many choices on the ice cream aisle. Let me help you out for your next grocery trip, try Halo Top. You won’t regret it.
Halo Top sponsored this post, but opinions are my own.
Add chicken (or pork) and stir fry for 3 minutes or until browned. Add all vegetables, peanuts, and water chestnuts. Stir-fry for an additional 2 minutes. Add 3/4 pouch Of Lee Kum Kee Sauce for Lettuce Wrap. Bring to simmer and add green onions and peanuts. Scoop the mixture into a lettuce cup. Drizzle the remaining sauce on top. (I poured the entire sauce mixture in with the meat.)
