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!

Tuna Stuffed Peppers

Perfect for an easy and healthy meal option using ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry right now.


1 - 170g (or 4.5 oz) can tuna, drained (albacore this time)

2 bell peppers, halved and seeds removed

1 cup cooked rice (I used leftover rice and peas, if you have plain rice just add about 2 tbsps peas)

1 tbsp parmesan cheese

1 tsp capers, chopped plus a few more to garnish

2 tsps chili oil 

1 Roma tomato, seeds removed and diced

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 white mushrooms, chopped

1 tsp celery seed

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp dijon mustard

1 1/2 tbsps mayonnaise

Roast the bell pepper halves in a 425°F oven for 15-20 minutes to soften. Set aside and reduce oven heat to 350°F.

Sauté the onion and mushrooms in chili oil on medium heat for 3 minutes then add the rest of the ingredients. Spoon filling into pepper halves. Return to a 350°F oven for 15 minutes. Garnish with more capers if you like.

Serves 2
