Why Did I Disappear?

Before talking about the recipe, I must share few things with you, a little personal but I guess you (my readers) should know what was going on and why I didn’t post for a while. First, let me say that all is well at my end and I spent past days enjoying success and pleasant surprises from my family and friends.

The best thing about being your own boss is taking time off whenever you want and I had to spend some time away from my blog and enjoy all the blessings God showered me with.

My son made me a proud mom (He always does) and passed with good grades. My husband and I worked on three successful projects, one of them you’ll get to witness hopefully soon! We did have a family emergency and things for a short while didn’t look promising but it all worked great at the end.

These are some of the pleasant moments I have experienced in the past weeks. There was something new almost daily so I had to take a break from blogging.

The Giveaway

I am happy beyond words and I want to express this happiness by giving something amazing away to one lucky reader.

I have teamed up with KUHN RIKON and will be giving away one Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker.

Today’s recipe (Moroccan Chicken Olive Stew) is made in Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker. The dish usually takes two hours and a half to cook, while in the Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker, it took 23 minutes only!

I love my stove top pressure cooker, but the microwave version made me fall in love again. I never cooked in the microwave before, the idea is all new to me since I mainly use my stove and oven to cook and the microwave is left for heating food.

Amazing Results Using Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker

I thought the chicken will come out tasting boiled, but I was in for a big and pleasant surprise. The dish came out better than when cooked in a tajin (a Moroccan stove top pot, made from clay). I didn’t marinate the chicken, yet the flavor has reached the bone.

You do not have to marinate the meat, this microwave pressure cooker spreads the flavor evenly to each and every part of the meat you are cooking, be it chicken, beef, or fish.

Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker is a blessing in disguise. Did I mention that it comes with a cookbook? The cookbook has amazing recipes, from soups, main meals, and even dessert.
