Lizzy's Stuffed Green Peppers

I remember standing on a chair learning to stir the pot as my grandmother instructed me in culinary arts. I was very fortunate to be the granddaughter of restaurateurs! For over 50 years I've been using the techniques my wonderful grandparents have taught me. The other day I created this recipe - I just threw together things I had in the cabinet and refrigerator. I have to say that these were the best stuffed peppers that I've ever eaten. I actually called my husband to see when he was coming home for dinner and decided to eat before he arrived. The aroma and flavor were amazing!
