First Summer Harvest Recipe from Joulia
With the first harvest of our summer tomatoes and bell peppers, I am reminded of my childhood culinary experiences from my Greek mother, now a grandmother (Yiayia Marianda) of four. She would always prepare these vegetables stuffed and baked in the oven. I was very fortunate to have a Greek grandmother and mother who were amazing cooks. Walking into our home was always a treat. The most comforting aromas would trickle out of the kitchen intoxicating your culinary senses. From a young age I would love watching my grandmother (Yiayia Joulia) and Mother whipping up dishes from the old country.
Now, a mother of two girls myself, I enjoy preparing these same dishes for them. One of our family favorites the stuffed tomatoes and bell peppers; which has been handed down to me from my mother, I would like to share with you today. If you love tomatoes and bell peppers, you will surely keep this recipe in your recipe box. From my family's kitchen to yours, enjoy.
