Food has the power to bring back many wonderful memories. Growing up, one of my favorite meals was stuffed peppers. My grandfather made the best, and I always asked him to make them. It's fun to share these little moments in time with my husband and our son. My husband has similar memories with his grandparents and comparing stories is a joy.

Cooking together is a wonderful activity, and we try to do it as often as we can. Having everyone in the kitchen, preparing lunch or dinner, makes many lasting memories, and is a great way to spend quality time as a family.

We recently decided to make stuffed peppers, and it's a lot easier than you may think. Paired with fried cabbage, this is a delicious, summery meal your entire family will love. Put on an upbeat music playlist, gather your family, and get cooking!

        Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed them! My husband and I are not fancy cooks either. I'm partial to making things as simple as possible.. especially when it comes to cooking. :)

        You lost me at cabbage, Alyssa! Sorry...I just can't eat that stuff. It's like lettuce with a bad attitude. :)
