Peppers or M&M's? Thank you, I'll have both.

New recipe that I had to share! I was looking through one of my friend’s (Brooke's) cookbooks last night and everything looked so good, but I didn’t have a chance to copy any of the recipes. So it just kinda inspired me to make something similar but different. I have been having some odd cravings so I thought I would test one of them out tonight on Derrick. He actually ate it all up and wanted seconds! Which is surprising considering that here lately our tastes are very different. He has had to tell me more than once to stop recommending certain things to people…like two weeks ago when I insisted to everyone I saw that they absolutely had to go buy a big bag of the strawberry peanut butter M&M’s. I honestly think they might be one of the best candies I have ever had. I pretty much cleaned Wal-Mart out of them. However, I must say, Derrick is not as impressed. I will continue to eat them by the pounds and enjoy every minute of it (at least until I am no longer pregnant and then we will see if my tastes are the same). Enough about the M&M’s, here is the new recipe…

Stuffed Peppers
2 chicken breasts (seasoned with S&P and grilled and cut into cubes)
10 oz frozen spinach (chopped, thawed and drained)
1 cup Formaggio Trio cheese shredded (Parmesan, Asiago and Romano)
1 cup mozzarella shredded
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 tsp garlic powder
3 red peppers cut in half and hollowed

So I mixed everything together and stuffed it into the peppers and cooked it at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes. Very yummy!

I also tried to make grape salad which was very sweet but made a wonderful dessert…

Grape Salad
3 cups grapes (red and green cut in halves)
2 oz cream cheese
1 TB sugar
1 TB brown sugar
1/3 pralines chopped

P.S. I overcooked the brussel sprouts, but the crunchy bacon helped me be able to get past their mushy-ness.


  1. Oh, wow, that sounds good. WHO THINKS OF THESE THINGS?!?!?! I'll have to try it....and I just bought some peppers today at the store and didn't know what I'd do with them. Must be that sister telepathy thing again. ;o) Can you overcook brussels? I didn't know that was possible. haha! I'll have to try your M&Ms. Unless the pregnant ladies around here have cleaned out my Wal-Mart, too.

  2. Kelly,
    That's so funny about your two recipes because it's something Mom makes all of the time! Insteade of the chicken, she always used ground beef, but I think your version is much healthier! Grape salad is soooo good, too! Rob and I grilled out tonight--I would love to see some of your awesome recipes for that! :)
    love, becky
    ps--do the m&ms still have chocolate? i just don't think i could do without that! :)
