Now those Moroccan Meatballs with Eggs in Tomato Sauce look so tasty +Azlin Bloor!
Just load them up on a hoagie roll for me and I'll take it to go!
 
Moroccan Meatballs with Eggs in Tomato Sauce

Or Kefta Mkaouara. I have so many fond memories of eating these on a number of occasions in Morocco, each one slightly different from the other. 

It is very typical of so many North African and even Middle Eastern dishes, namely, tagines and shakshouka. In fact, almost to the man/woman, every Moroccan I speak to will agree that the eggs are most certainly a modern “borrow” from Shakshouka.

I've added grilled peppers and cheese to the mix - imagine dipping into that mix, straight out of the oven, with some torn flatbread or even garlic bread! Convinced yet?

For the full recipe: http://linsfood.com/moroccan-meatballs/

After losing 45 pounds, I'm trying eat better and that includes my snacks!

I made a delicious healthy pop corn bar that you can find on my blog.   It's super easy to make and will satisfy your sweet tooth without making you feel guilty!

For a Printable copy click here http://goo.gl/f0lD4q

Healthy Pop Corn Bars
Ingredients
8 cups popped JOLLY TIME POP Corn (your choice of flavor)
1½ cups rolled oat (I used GF Organic)
1 cup puffed rice cereal
¾ cup raisins
¾ cup craisins
1 cup toasted pecan pieces
½ cup toasted pumpkin seeds
½ cup toasted flax seeds
⅔ cup maple syrup or honey ( I used a combination of both)
⅔ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter (or dairy free substitute)
sea salt for topping bars (optional)
Instructions
prep a baking dish ( I used a 15 x 11 baking pan, pushing everything into about ¾ of the pan length to make thicker bars) lightly greasing so the bars release.
Make Pop corn and set aside
Toast seeds and nuts and set aside
Mix all the dry ingredients together
Whisk maple syrup, brown sugar and butter together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow to come to a slow boil, turn down heat to low and continue to boil for 2 minutes.
Pour the mixture over your pop corn blend and stir gently, coating the pop corn mixture as thoroughly as possible
Press the pop corn mixture into your prepared baking dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours so the bars firm up nicely.
Sprinkle bars with sea salt if you like more of a salty sweet flavor (optional)
Cut into bars, and store refrigerated in a seal container.

Chef / Food Blogger / YouTube Host & Producer
Introduction
My name is Dennis Littley or "Chef Dennis" as I'm known both at work and across the Internet.   I am an Executive Chef, Culinary Instructor, Food and Travel Blogger,Youtube Show Host and Producer of four shows on Google Plus that you can find on playlists of my YouTube Channel

My 40+ years of experience in the Food Service Industry have taken me on an incredible journey, beginning my career in Fast Food then working my way through Nursing Homes, Fine Dining Restaurants, Executive Dining and finally Private Schools.

After an unpleasant experience with another area Electrician, I called Terry's. They were courteous and responsive and fixed the issues with my GFI outlet in about 15 minutes and charged a reasonable amount. I will use them for any electrical need that I have.

My appointment was changed twice in one day then cancelled for the next morning. That was changed after I was told someone would be here within an hour. When the technician finally did come in the afternoon almost an hour after the time they gave me he wanted to charge me the $69 fee for the visit and the cost of replacing one GFI outlet of $193. plus tax of course which would have made it almost $300 for one GFI outlet. That seems a bit excessive to me based on all my dealings with Electricians in New Jersey. The other note is that their office is about 1 mile from my home. UPDATE: ACE called this morning to let me know they would wave the dispatch fee. I guess complaining is a good thing. UPDATE: The outlet was easily replace and upon inspection it was verified that it was the only problem. Cost $90

I was thrilled to be invited back into the Chocolate Kitchen to watch as they made some of their amazing chocolate creations. Its plain to see their employees love chocolate and love what they do. This of course translates into their products. I got to try some of their chocolate creations, including chocolate covered bacon, chocolate popcorn, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels, chocolate graham crackers, chocolate oreo's and chocolate covered potato chips and Jami you were right the milk chocolate chips were my favorite! I am looking forward to going back soon to try out some of the Gelato they have at the store. If you love chocolate you want to make sure to put this on your to do list, plus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Winter Park while your're there!

I was fortunate to find Barnie's coffee after moving from the Philadelphia area, and its been the only coffee I drink since we moved. I use their espresso beans, as well as their house blend decaf, but my favorites are their MIcro Roasts. Whenever I'm in Winter Park I make it a point to stop in and see what new coffees they have available. And I do use their very easy online ordering.
