The Sand Dunes of Marzouga

The Sand Dunes of Marzouga

Merzouga is a village in the Sahara desert in Morocco,. We drove 6 hours from marrakech, though hills, the winding roads of Tishka, the kasbahs around ourzazate, oases, flat lands, even more beautiful oases, and finally our hotel with a magic door opening towards the famous sand dunes of Merzouga. The view is just breathtaking--- warm colors, and space... lots of space and lots of camels! Riding a camel is something else, front, back front, swing, and you are on top of the world! This is Julie, getting excited to ride a camel for the first time. And this is Jane who equates riding a camel to her aerial dancing routines! And all we go, slowly, in our mini-caravane, to our tents where we are spending the night! The sun is setting... it's so beautiful. time stops. In the tents, our guide served us hot Moroccan tea. We ate, we watched the stars in a perfect sky, and played music... In the morning, we woke up early to watch the sunrise... That is one unforgettable experience. This is the lead camel, we nicknamed him "jojo" it's time to leave - the caravane is moving Breakfast was waiting for us at the hotel but not just for us! Talking about camels, have you ever had camel milk before? It's creamy, nutty, and delicious! and we were not the only ones who liked it, baby camel LOVED IT!!! oh baby camel... we want to take you with us!!! and off to continue our journey in the south of Morocco...

Alia’s Tips: Crème Fraîche Homemade Recipe

Alia’s Tips: Crème Fraîche Homemade Recipe

Ingredients: 1 tablespoon buttermilk (or plain yogurt) 1 cup (236 ml) heavy cream Creme fraiche has a nutty flavor and is a bit sour, but less sour than the U.S. sour cream. It is creamy but less sense the cream cheese. You can use creme fraiche in multiple recipes: add a bit of sugar and serve it with fruits. You can also use it with sauces because it does not curdle with heat. It is very difficult to find creme fraiche in the U.S. there are a couple of stores that sell it but if you can not find it, dont worry about it because you only need 2 ingredients to make it!
