There's nothing like a great meal prepared with fresh Jersey produce. Especially now during the summer months when most everything is in season. That right there is a great reason to cook up one of your favorite meals with your ultimate garden favorites.

For me, stuffed peppers are definitely among my favorite dishes to make. And nothing beats preparing them with locally grown or homegrown Jersey peppers. Although this can make a great side dish when the weather cools in the fall, right now is also a great time to make them when Jersey produce availability is an almost certain guarantee.

Stuffed peppers are also one of those meals you can have fun preparing with your kids, which I absolutely love to do. This recipe I used is my own and a lot of it is eyeballed, but I'll do my best to break down the measurements so you can try this in your kitchen as well.

Trust me, you're going to love it.
