A Spicy Video: Harissa

The year is coming to an end. Above all, I would say that 2014 has been surprising. I never quite knew what to expect, but worked really hard, had a lot of faith and things fell into place. I didn’t have a chance to do my quote for the week yesterday, but found one that I like by Angela Davis.

I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.

Since I don’t have much time to do a proper post, I thought I’d share a video. Many recipes now call for harissa and it’s also something that I’ve started seeing more of on restaurant menus.

For whatever reason, I always forget what it is when I see it. Maybe this video will help permanently embed it in my brain! I just have to remember that harissa is hot! And it’s pronounced like Lisa, not Melissa.

In case I don’t get a chance to pop in here before the year ends, Happy New Year to you!
