What a busy weekend this has been. I know that many of you feel the same way. Unfortunately I was rushing to get everything done on time and did not take pictures. So with nothing to show for the hours I spent making traditional almond pies, cookies and more, I was just wondering what I would write about early this week. Well I did not have to think too hard or fast for there in my messages was one big surprise from Dee of Deelicious Sweets. Dee told me that she was taking up my challenge to prepare Stuffed Bell Peppers for the first time, tonight. That sounded really exciting … a wonderful person who I only “virtually” met recently through Foodbuzz is actually making use of the recipes I’m sharing ... and I get to see the results. What more could I want from my blog? It makes me feel good that her pictures look even better than mine!

OK here’s the funny part. You all know how we scan through everyone’s recipes, sometimes missing out on some important details. Well Dee admitted that had she read the ingredients a little more closely she may never have accepted my challenge. As she was getting ready to get her ingredients together she noticed “Tuna”. Oops! Not something she would normally use. Well now that she was in this challenge she was going to complete it. In her own words:
“They were awesome! We loved them, thank you for challenging me … I'm glad you challenged me because they were very good and I would have missed out!”
So there you have it; sometimes we just need to travel outside of our comfort zones with ingredients, if we want to experience new tastes we never even dreamed we would like! Thank you Dee for taking on my challenge, your peppers look so delicious and you have inspired me to move outside of my own comfort zones.
Ingredients and Cooking Method
See my Stuffed Bell Peppers post.
Dee’s modifications to my recipe:
Instead of Gruyere cheese she used Athenos Feta Cheese Tomato and Basil flavor 6 oz., additionally she did not use olives.
Thanks for stopping by and do leave a note for Dee telling her what you think of these lovely peppers.
