I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!

I’ve made this twice. Delicious & beautiful! For 15 pieces I used 2 red bell peppers, 4 cloves of garlic, 7.5 slices of prosciutto, & the outer leaves of 2 Belgian endives- to keep the size similar. I put the lid on skillet while cooking peppers to soften without burning the garlic. Second time, I also added lemon thyme from my garden:-)

Hold the horses, this is beautiful! And not the labor-intensive work that lots of miniature s**t can be.
