Roasted Pepper and Ricotta-Stuffed Peppers {#BrunchWeek, #giveaway}

Thanks to a delivery of complimentary peppers from one of #BrunchWeek's sponsors, Baloian Farms, I swapped out one of my planned recipes and created this instead. It's so simple, I'm loathe to call it a recipe. But it's so good, I really wanted to share it!

It's #Brunchweek!  We're on the fourth day of our second annual week-long blogging event hosted by Terri of Love and Confections and Susan of The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen!

Join us this whole week - May 5th through 11th - while we celebrate the deliciousness of brunch and prepare for Mother's Day and the summer brunching season.  We are 32 bloggers strong, bringing you recipes for everything from cocktails to eggs benedict to donuts.

Our amazing sponsors have donated some great prizes for a gigantic giveaway. Click (here) to read about this fun event, the sponsors, and the giveaway!

Ingredients serves 4
  • 4 mini bell peppers, raw
  • 4 mini bell peppers, grilled or roasted
  • 1 C fresh ricotta
  • 2 T fresh chervil, chopped + garnish
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
Core, deseed, and halve the raw mini bell peppers. Cut the grilled or roasted peppers into strips and deseed. Dice them. Place the diced peppers in a mixing bowl with the ricotta, chervil, salt, and pepper. 

Blend the filling together with a fork until well-combined. Spoon the ricotta mixture into the halved raw peppers. To serve, place the stuffed peppers on a plate and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and more chervil.

While my 10-year-old loves peppers, my 11-year-old is not a fan of raw peppers. Period. He'll eat cooked peppers, but he objects to raw ones for some reason that is beyond me.

But since yellow is his favorite color, I implored him to try a stuffed yellow pepper.

And...guess what?!? He loved it!

Thanks, Baloian Farms, you made a pepper-lover of my kid. That is amazing!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
