I totally forgot to tell you.

I’m obsessed with tossing a bunch of ingredients into a baking dish and creating a masterpiece.

It’s kinda fun and exciting but a bit nerve wracking when you’re not sure if the recipe is going to explode or come out a perfect meal.

In this case… it’s perfect.

I think baking is the best part about the winter season.

Creating warm, hearty casserole recipes and serving them to our families goes beyond a chilled salad or a smoothie.

Am I wrong?

Doesn’t it feel so good to eat something beautiful hot out of the oven?

I thought so.

Anyway, onto our couscous recipe we go.

This one is going to be a favorite of yours because it surely is one of mine.

I’ve made it a few times already and everyone loved it.

I think it’d be great for a potluck or a holiday party. Or a Friday night when you open a bag of tortilla chips and all you wanna do is find a hearty dip to dig ’em into.

Yup. You can use this couscous bake for that, too.

Go ahead.

But that’s a few months away so just bookmark this and you’ll be all set come February.

And don’t forget the chips.

The dunking part makes this recipe so fun!
