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!

Old Fashioned Stuffed Peppers

A few everyday ingredients go into this classic, old fashioned recipe. I changed up the usual ground beef for ground pork, beef and veal but you can stick with just beef. The simplicity of the ingredients makes it work. You don't even need leftover rice for this one!

500 g (1 lb) ground trio (pork, beef and veal)
5 bell peppers
1 1/2 cups bread, roughly torn (I used 2 white bread heels)
3-4 tbsps milk to moisten bread
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp dry basil
1 tsp dry oregano
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsps olive oil
2 tbsps finely chopped celery
smoked paprika

Cut peppers in half, seed and core. Then blanch them in boiling water for 1 minute and into a cold water bath. Drain. Add the milk to the bread and set aside.
Add olive oil to a skillet and heat to medium. Brown the ground meat for 2-3 minutes, breaking it up. Remove from heat and add the garlic, onion, celery, parsley, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Then stir in the bread and bread crumbs. Mix well and spoon into pepper halves.

Sit the peppers in an oiled baking dish, sprinkle smoked paprika on top and cover with foil.

Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes, then remove the foil and return the peppers to the oven for an additional 15 minutes.
