Spicy Chicken Tagine

Serves 4-6
"In my next life, I want to be Moroccan. I just love the cooking techniques, the spices, the tastes. My elderly neighbour while I was growing up, Tovah, was Moroccan, and I'd often stop by her apartment to watch her cook (and to learn). the ingredients used here are certainly ones that could be found in many of Tovah's dishes, but I've combined them in a new way. The mint in particular adds freshness to what is otherwise a very rich dish."

Pomegranate Butter Cookies

"These are great refrigerator cookies because the dough needs to be made in advance of baking so it has the time to set before it is cut. You can also keep the dough cylinders in the freezer and slice them just before baking. These have the unexpected burst of flavor that comes from juicy pomegranate seeds. Not only do they taste very good, but the bright red color of the seeds is striking against the soft tan color of the cookie dough."

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
