The Kasbah Chronicles

Until my return from Morocco. . .

I leave behind these gorgeous Vista clouds




Talks and presentations

March slipped away from me. In am in full “packing” mode. We have a full tour! April 23rd to May 2nd, I will be in Morocco with Adventures by the Book. And this is the view of the Mother of Spring river from Dar Zitoun’s atrium window.

I am still basking in the thrill of my lunar adventure (before it appeared in the NY Times!)

Space Camp was one of the most fun experiences of my life. Please bear with me: just one more picture!


Kitty’s Blood Orange Syrup and Jelly

Ripe fruit fall off our blood orange tree faster than I can pick them! To savor their flavor at other times of the year, I make this ambrosial syrup, keep it in the fridge, and serve it with champagne or with carbonated water for a refreshing summer beverage.

2 ¼ cups fresh blood orange juice, strained

½ cup water

1 1/3 cups sugar

For the syrup: Place juice, water, and sugar in heavy pan. Simmer for 20 to 30 mns to viscous liquid stage. Refrigerate. Add 2 tablespoons to a glass of white wine, champagne, or prosecco. Or simply combine with water and ice cubes, to taste.

For the jelly: Simmer 20 mns longer, or until mixture forms a very soft ball when dropped in cold water.  Let cool overnight on the kitchen counter. Store in sterilized containers and seal. Spread on toast, or use as a topping for yogurt, mascarpone, ricotta, etc . . .

    Kitty have just spent a month sleeping in Alicia’s living room eating healthy! ! ! !What a treat. I am not too thrilled with the wind and dust . The Yucca Valley is beautiful with blooming Yuccas. Alicia’s yucca’s have huge seeds.

    My daughters were in Vet Nam this summer. Augie with a travel group of you g adults. Augie and Chris took in Hong Kong where her Mom and I were when Chris told me she was engaged,
    Then they met up with the group Chris and Augie took a cruse. They met up again in Baronial to travel to Paris before flying home to San Francisco.
