A delicious recipe from a favorite blogger...

I am very fortunate to live within 12 miles of downtown Pittsburgh and less than 5 miles from some wonderful farm markets. I love to visit the farms in growing season and find their wonderful assortments of produce and baked goods. (Of course the baked goods are available all year long which my waistline can attest to!)
Fearing that we are nearing the end of the local growing season, I dashed off to one of the markets the other day, Soergels, because my mouth was watering for Stuffed Peppers. I found gorgeous peppers and also corn, broccoli and green beans....oh, and honeycrisp apples. Have you ever had honeycrisp apples? They may cost a bit more but they are worth every cent. You have to have a napkin handy when you eat them because they are so juicy...and sweet.
 Anyway, back to the peppers...
Aren't these beautiful? All are sweet bell peppers, some just have some red color in their skins.
Using the recipe found at Maryjane's Beehive Cottage blog here, I made this....

David had corn on the cob with his peppers and I chose the green beans.
Side Note: The recipe says the mixture will fill 4-6 peppers. I used 4 big peppers so I'm sure it would work with 6 medium sized can see that I had lots of the meat & rice mixture left which I worked in around the peppers in the baking dish.

Now my blog will never be considered a culinary blog but I do love trying recipes from other bloggers. We like good basic comfort foods...easy to prepare and kitchen tested.
Visit Maryjane's Beehive Cottage. Not only does she have lots of other yummy recipes which can be found by scrolling down her left hand sidebar, but she also shares delightful handmade art and decorating ideas.
Enjoy this beautiful (I hope it is where you are) fall weekend!

I would love to try this recipe one day. I have often seen versions of it online or in cookbooks but thought it was too fiddly. I will definitely give it a go now!

Best wishes,
