Balance is important no matter what you do in life. I absolutely love to cook and I love food, all food, from anywhere. I love to indulge and that means I sometimes have to sacrifice healthiness. But there are times when I feel the need to cook light and nutritious. What's the fun in cooking if you can't be creative?! What a fun challenge it is to figure out ways to make sinful sweets into good-for-you treats!
I love anything that can be left to cook in a pot for hours. I love the smells that fill the house from slow cooking this way. Just smelling it is such a comfort. Takes me back to the days I lived at home and being cooked for by mommy or grandma. This is a good meal that tastes like its been cooked all day but really it'll take you about a little over an hour. I have experimented with several different kinds of stuffed peppers, but this one takes the gold! I did pair my peppers with large couscous in pesto, with sweet peas and shaved parmesan... Perfection!
I was born in Peru where life revolves around food :) My grandmother was a cooking goddess and I strive to be half as good as her! I love cooking and eating out and tasting flavors from all over the world. Check out my Facebook page (linked as "f" above my picture) for daily updates and posts! Thanks for visiting and happy cooking! Don't forget to send me your feedback!
