I am so excited to participate in this year's Virtual Food & Wine Festival hosted by Focused on the Magic. I always look forward to times when I can work with some of my favorite Disney Bloggers!
I've continued to read recipes on Pinterest and in magazines that use couscous, so I thought I'd give Moroccan food a second chance! Thanks to Deb at All Ears for publishing this recipe.
