I'm starting to load some of my favorite recipes and some older recipes from our family's cookbook which you can download by clicking one of the links in the box below this one. It takes some time but soon I hope to have enough recipes that you'll find something you'll want to try.


You can download our family cookbook as an Adobe.PDF or Microsoft Publisher format and view it. Better yet, it is formatted in a booklet form so you can print it out and always have it on hand!

   Stuffed Peppers

stued peppers in tomato sauce These ground beef stuffed peppers are a little bit different than most recipes on the net. Mine are completely submersed in tomato sauce while cooking. Here, I used some mango peppers and sweet banana peppers out of the garden. Put a lot of sauce on your plate which goes great with a baked potatoe. With all the extra sauce and meatballs I make a spaghetti sauce for another meal. This is really one of my favorites.


  • 6 large peppers
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 Lbs. ground chuck
  • 1/2 cup minute rice (uncooked)
  • 1 medium onion (diced and divided)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 large cans tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbs. brown sugar


  1. Cut off tops of green peppers and remove seeds.
  2. Combine chuck, rice, bread crumbs, eggs, 2/3 of the onion, salt, pepper and cloves.
  3. Stuff mixture into peppers and place in pan.
  4. Form the rest of the mixture into balls and place on top and between peppers. (Use them for spaghetti sauce later)
  5. Cover with remaining tomato sauce, add bay leaves, 1/3 of the onion and sprinkle with salt, pepper and brown sugar.
  6. Cover with lid and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for
    1 1/2 hours or in a pressure cooker for 30 minutes.
  7. Use tomato sauce as a gravy for peppers.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
