Moroccan Almond Shortbread Crescents Recipe

10th of April, 2012

Almond Shortbread

Moroccan Eggplant Salad with Preserved Lemons and Olives Recipe

Eggplant is a huge favorite in our Sephardi Cooking. This dish is all roasted, so  it is pretty streamlined, and pretty lean. Anything not to have to fry eggplant, which gobbles up oil like crazy! The preserved lemons do make a big difference, so please don’t skip them unless it...
