Cooking ~ Stuffed Red Bellpeppers with Wild Rice & Tuna

Cooking ~ Stuffed Red Bellpeppers with Wild Rice

I had these red bellpeppers in my fridge and I didn't want them to go bad, so I started searching on the internet to find recipes that I could use. The first things that came up was Stuffed Bellpeppers.

There were so many creative recipes that I didn't know which ones to choose, so I decided to make up my own.  All you have to do is look in your cabinets and use what you already have.  This was the easiest recipe to make and become really creative in the process.

Cooking ~ Quick and Simple Vegetarian Lasagna

Quick and Simple Vegetarian Lasagna

I love Lasagna and since I don't eat meat I have to really become creative when it comes to cooking dishes that required meat.  Edit to say I occasionally eat fish, chicken and turkey but I've never acquired a taste for ground turkey in my Lasagna for some reason so I just prepare it with vegetables and leave out the ground turkey.

I prepare it the same way as most people except that I don't layer it, it's really just a quick and simple recipe that only takes 15 minutes to prepare.

Cooking ~ Grilled Shrimp with Edamame Salad


It's been such a long time since i've posted anything cooking related, I thought I would talk about this Edamame salad I bought to compliment the grilled shrimp i've been lemming for.
Grilled Shrimp with Edamame Salad

If you don't like the taste of edamame, then you might not like this salad.  It has sort of a sweet, sour and tangy taste thanks to the cranberry's and vinaigrette dressing.  With all that going on, they sort of drown out the flavor of the edamame, well all I will say is... this salad isn't for the faint of heart!

After about 15 minutes of simmering, it was ready.... all it all , this simple meal took about 30 minutes to make and was simply delicious!
