Santa Claus is quite perceptive. I mean he brought me a Terracotta Tagine for Christmas and it wasn’t even on my list. How did he know?!! Working perfectly into our Winter Thyme Spice Exploration plan, we put that baby to good use tonight. We turned a basic beef stew into a fragrant adventure with this Beef Tagine with Butternut Squash. Paprika, cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne came together with tangy tomatoes and sweet butternut squash to create a BIG flavor sauce. The beef was tender, as slow braised beef should be, and completely infused with Moroccan love. I’m smiling.
