A few weeks ago I bought a bag of sweet mini bell peppers because they looked so pretty, but not having any plan on what to do with them. I ended up stuffing some with a ground turkey filling and then pickled a jar with this easy refrigerated pickling recipe. Great snacking or on a sandwich, they'll keep for a few weeks in the fridge. Pack the jar in the picnic basket and enjoy! —inpatskitchen

Directions

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 learned...to 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!
