WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Sweet Peppers Stuffed with Lox and Cream Cheese


So the cured salmon I made and thought turned out to be a colossal failure has turned out to be quite lovely.

I found that after having sat in the refrigerator for 24 hours, the salmon had a more subtle and less salty flavor. Hum... so curious, that is.

I wanted to try and hold on to some of it longer than its shelf life, which is about five days, I believe. So I mixed an ample portion into a bit of soft cream cheese.

I found that the lox cream cheese is actually very tasty stuffed into roasted sweet peppers. The roast brings out the sweetness of the peppers, which melds well with the slightly salty flavor of the lox cream cheese. Drizzled with a little bit of mole colorado that I landed while attending the Tucson Food Swap just recently, this made for a perfectly flavored meal.

Also, I experimented with a dab of I did of pesto on a couple of peppers. Nope. Overkill. Wasn't even remotely necessary.
