Featured Guest {Photolife Site} & Sharing..

Hello artsy friends stopping in today,
it's officially Tuesday and I have a lovely guest stopping in to join us..
 The Awesome Martin from PhotoLifeSite..*My First Gentleman Feature* I stumbled upon his blog and absolutely love all his photography!! He cooks too, and today, I'm
excited to feature him here
for just that!! Yum!!

 

Martin is a husband, a Dad,
and really enjoys cooking.
He loves to travel and is
a rocking photographer
who never leaves home
without his camera..He will
be sharing a heart warming
recipe with us today that
I can't wait to try. Please
stop in and indulge in all his
really cool photo logs and
awesome recipes
via Photo.Life.Site.
 

Some of Martin's photography
 
Here's a few of his
beautiful captures. There's
so much travel photography
to dig into via PhotoLifeSite.
I literally browsed for a
while. "Made me want to
pick up my camera and
head off around the world"
Without further due,
his recipe below..
Hope you enjoy..


Recipe {Autumn Stuffed Peppers}
Stuffing
8-10 Green Peppers
1 ½ cups rice
17 oz ground meat
( I use 50% pork
and 50% beef)
1 teaspoon savory
1 onion (chopped)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 carrot (chopped)
3-4 table spoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper
Sauce
15 oz yogurt
1 egg
1 table spoon flour
salt
Directions
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the chopped onion and carrot for a
couple of minutes, add the cleaned and rinsed rice and fry for about 4-5 min. 
Add the meat and mix everything together until the meat is browned on
very small pieces. Add all the spices, mix and remove from heat. Clean the
green peppers and stuff them with the mixture. Put them in a baking dish
(best is if you have a big crock) and pour 5 cups water. 
Bake on 400F (200C) for 40-50 min.
Sauce
Mix the egg, the flour and the
yogurt. After baking the peppers
for 40 min pour the sauce
over them. If it seems too
thick add some hot water.
Bring back to boil..
Serve the peppers
and enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~
Isn't this recipe so easy and
sounds really great..? Love
the photo's too. I will
certainly be trying it
sometime soon..
I sincerely appreciate
having Martin here today
and hope you enjoyed his recipe and photo's. You can always stop in and check out
his travels, photo log, and enjoy some of his delicious recipes via PhotoLifeSite.
Many special Thanks Martin..

...................................
1. I have so many reactions when writing, you’d think the
person reading after could see. LOL, I think it’s so bizarre!
2. I practice my arguments!!*Yes, Institutionalize me NOW*
I hate to argue and always brush things off, so most times, if I know
I have to say anything unpleasant to someone, I rehearse(SMH)
what I’d like to say before hand on my way to say it. Funny
thing is, 90% of the time, I end up saying the
exact opposite.. Grrrrrrrrrr.. lol.

#ThatIsAll (Please don’t repeat to my diet!! TY)
4.I HATE doing laundry…I really do!!

(I didn’t know till after, and IT WAS MY CAT! Life time Shame on
my Nanny!! I can’t forgive her, but it totally tasted like chicken..
Brrrrrr) *Oddly, it's NOT the worst thing I've had!
7. I am addicted to EBay.. *The 1st step to recovery is
admittance ppl.. #Don’tJudgeMe .. HA!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now that I’ve told you a few bizarre but fun facts about me, I’m
passing on the award to the 15 bloger’s that inspire me and truly are
very talented, funny and deserving of it and more..
In NO particular order (I totally just went
