    TinyBubbles's Note:

    The Moors occupied Spain for over 800 years. Moorish culture, music, food, and architecture remains visible all over the coutry. Their last stronghold was Granada, where we recently enjoyed a delicious, spicy lamb stew. By combining several recipes, and a bit of trial and error, I was able to recreate the dish for my husband and our friends at a recent dinner party. This goes well with an icy cold beer, or a very crisp, light white wine to complement the heat! It seems like a lot of ingredients and spices, but it's very easy to prepare and definitely worth it!
