I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Beef Couscous Stuffed Peppers

These stuffed peppers make a healthy and satisfying all in one dinner for two! 

2 bell peppers
1/4 cup diced onion
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup prepared couscous
1/4 cup diced canned tomatoes
1/2 cup packed baby spinach leaves
1 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

First cut the peppers in half, core and seed, then blanch in boiling water for 1 minute. Remove to an oiled baking dish. You may want to cook the peppers completely but I prefer them tender crisp not soggy once stuffed and baked.
Brown the beef and onion in a skillet until nearly done. Next add the couscous, canned tomatoes, paprika, salt, pepper and lemon juice. (I used a spinach and citrus flavoured couscous this time. Check your grocery store shelf for different flavoured couscous or stick with plain old couscous!) Remove from heat and stir in the spinach.

Stuff the peppers with filling then bake in a 400°F oven for 25-30 minutes.

Serve warm. I like mine with a little sour cream.
