stuffed peppers!

I always thought I hated stuffed peppers. And then last year my mom made me some and they were ah-mazing! And then I went to a wedding and had some there - also delicious! But they seemed like a lot of work, so I never thought about making them.

But for some reason today at about 10 a.m. I decided I really really needed to have some and that for dinner this was the way to go!

They were actually super easy to make - though the cooking process does take a while. My photos suck as my place is incredibly poorly lit and super messy (from the packing...that my husband is doing and that i really should be doing...). But soon that'll all change because we're moving!!!! T minus 2 days to the commencement of actual moving! (which thank god my awesome awesome husband will be taking care of...I hate moving. I just want to be finished it all and be sitting in my awesome new place).

My friend Shannon helped me figure out what to stuff the peppers with (thanks Shannanigans!!).

black bean burgers

You may not know this about me (or maybe it's apparent from my recipes) but I'm the laziest cook ever. That's actually one of the reasons I heart raw food so much; mainly you just throw things into a blender or food processor and then you're done!

Well I found this great bean burger recipe from HelloVeggie that's super easy to make. I added in chopped onions and garlic, and would also like to try it with jalapeno (but currently I'm hoarding my two peppers for a raw corn chip I am formulating - currently in the conceptual phase, but coming soon!). I also am far too lazy to "mash" anything, so I just threw the ingredients into my trusty food processor and "pulsed" like I'd never pulsed before!

These burgers were delicious! And cheap! Which makes me happy because the boy's done work for the season and with my having the flu I missed a bunch of work and we're moving and have to buy stuff for that, so I'm feeling poor.

first blog post in forEVER!! and a chocolate raspberry torte

I've moved! Visit my new blog La Belle Vie for more recipes and healthy living tips. Don't forget to update your bookmarks!chocolate raspberry torte: chocolate nutty crust, topped with fresh raspberries and fudgy sauce

I'm not going to lie, I totally make up whether to call it a torte, a tart or a pie based on what sounds nicer. I'm pretty sure this is not a torte...aren't tortes filled with denser fillings or something? I have no idea.

Anyway, I know it's been forever forever forever since I posted anything. The reasons are many-fold:
we had to bring our computer in for fixing so it was away for a whilewe both came down with the WORST FLU I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. It is horrible! And it's still kicking! Thank god it's on the way out now at 1.5 weeks. I actually didn't get out of bed for 3 straight days. And then, when I did, I could only do light activity because simple tasks like cleaning the cats' litter exhausted me too much. And today I m…
