My maternal grandmother played a very important role in my life. In fact, she even lived with us for many years.

I really love the taste of stuffed peppers. For me, they are absolute comfort food.  But I usually only make them during the cooler months of the year because I do what I can to leave my oven off during the summer months. But once in a while I still get a craving. So I wanted to create a recipe that could be done in the slow cooker…
