Today, I was missing my mother.

I had some beautiful bell peppers. I stared at them, along with the other items in my fridge. My memory jolted my taste buds to life as I remembered how I loved the stuffed peppers my "mum" made but I did not learn her recipe before she left us.

Determined to get that feeling back, I started throwing things together. I knew mine would not be like hers but seeing them would make me feel closer to her.

This recipe is what I came up with and it just so happened that my daughter loves this recipe too.
