Veronica's Piquillo Peppers


I have a friend (from northern Spain where piquillo peppers originate) that makes the best stuffed piquillo peppers.  She's actually now living in the UK, so I was left to improvise.  I also wanted to make a recipe that didn't include flour nor dairy.  Here's the result.

1 jar of Piquillo Peppers (9.9 oz)
(in Utah, I can find them at Sunflower Market).

Stuffing for Piquillo Peppers:

1/2 diced sweet onion
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 small cloves of garlic (2 large)
2 pieces of Tilapia cut up in pieces
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and Pepper
2 Tbsp marinara sauce

Start off by heating up the olive oil in a pan. Once hot, add the onion and cook until translucent.  Add garlic and saute for one minute (don't let it burn).  Add tilapia, juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper and marinara sauce.

Break up the tilapia until all is cooked thoroughly and fish is flaky and in small pieces.


Sauce:
juice from the piquillo peppers jar
dash of white vinegar
1/2 a packet of "Sazon Goya con Azafran" (in Utah can be found in any Hispanic Market)
2 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Saute the garlic cloves in olive oil and once cooked, add that mixture to the other sauce ingredients.

This seasoning is great! It has cumin, garlic, saffron and tumeric and makes dishes TASTY!
You need it in your pantry :-)
Stuff the peppers with the fish stuffing.  My jar had 11 peppers. It was a perfect ratio. Place them in a baking dish, pour sauce on top of peppers, cover with aluminum foil and place in your preheated oven (350 degrees) for 25-30 minutes.  Serve warm and enjoy!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
