Moroccan Recipes at and other Info.

Back in September 2007, I mentioned that was in search of guides to various topics, including Moroccan Food and others like Middle East Issues and Arabic Language. This is considered one of the better paying content sites on the Internet as guides receive a monthly stipend of $675 per month for their first two years. Although this is down from $725 (the rate offered back in September 2007), says that:
In addition to a base payment (guaranteed to be $675 per month for Guides in their first two years, with a minimum of $500 per month afterwards), pays Guides by measuring page view growth (month-over-month for Guides in their first year, and year-over-year every year after) with payment incentives for pageview growth. If your page views grow, you will never make less than $675 per month.
On average, a Guide in his or her first two years will make $1,000 a month. The average Guide compensation is around $2,000 a month, and we have Guides who earn more than $100,000 a year.
In any case, I have been meaning for a long time to draw attention to the fact that Sr. Christine Benlafquih, who also writes for Suite101, became the Moroccan Food Guide at The recipes on Sr. Christine's Moroccan food site are incredibly detailed and mouth-watering. Some dishes I am thinking of trying are:
