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!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
