My mom was a Farmgirl before I knew what a Farmgirl was. She loves the Little House on the Prairie books as much as I do. She always has an apron on if in the kitchen. She was unabashedly a housewife; our house always clean, supper always on the table. As soon as they could my parents bought land east of Denver and created a homestead of chickens, a very windy garden, bees, and at one point goats and horses. My dad built them a darling farmhouse with his own two hands.
It is funny how taste can transport you back to childhood. For me the flavor of my mom’s green peppers is one of my favorites. There are no stuffed peppers like these. The combination of toasted almonds and juicy raisins plumped in rich tomato sauce has a flavor you will fall in love with!
I had some fresh green peppers and tomatoes in the garden that needed eating before the frost came so I emailed my mom (again) for the recipe. I had put up plenty of spaghetti sauce. I used my own homemade broth as well. The directions are easy and in no time at all you will have a scrumptious dinner on the table!
