Sweet Pepper Rings Meatloaf

Oh Yes, They Did

I bought some peppers, intending to make stuffed peppers and then changed my mind.  I decided to make little meatloaves and to cook them inside a slice of sweet pepper, placing them on a generous layer of Spirited Mickie Barbeque sauce and then topped with melted cheese!

Chris and Dillon loved them so I decided to share the recipe with you!


Here are my ingredients, I had hoped that this time I remembered to put everything out for the picture but that was not the case lol… I forgot to put ketchup on the counter before I started.


The first thing you are going to do is to slice the peppers, about an inch  tall, making sure to cut it so you get pepper rings. Set aside.  Keep the tops and bottoms for the next step.


Now you are going to finely dice the “leftover” pepper pieces and then dice a small…

My brother’s organic restaurant in Tokyo – Kitchen Watarigarasu

Japanese recipes - easy and healthy Mari's Japanese cookbook

Somehow, I haven’t introduced my brother’s tiny restaurant in Tokyo yet in my blog.
One of the reason is, it’s too close to me, I often eat there ( or even sometimes help his kitchen) and don’t take much pictures.. 🙂

He doesn’t cook traditional Japanese, it’s kind of fusion food based on seasonal organic veggies, and organic wines.

He doesn’t have the same menu, since he cooks besed on whatever he has on that day which organic farmers sent him.

On the other day’s Omakase course.. (Today’s special course)

Some kinds of vegetable appetizer
(spagetti squash etc)


Deep-fried bitter cucumber


We had baby squid tomato glatin, and octopus carpaccio, home-made baguette etc, but I forgot to take pictures again..
We asked him non-meat Omakase because my friends are vegetarian, but usually you have pork putty or simmered beaf with red wine or something as well.

Scallop with Ratatouille with…

Breakfast Recipe: Berry Coconut Chia Pudding

Featured Image -- 319

Louise Digby Nutrition

This is a super convenient breakfast as you’ll make it the night before, so it’ll be ready to eat by the time you wake. It takes around 4 hours ‘firm up’ so you could also make it in the morning to have at lunchtime.

This recipe is high in protein, which is important first thing in the morning as it’s needed to balance blood sugar levels, and to keep you going until lunchtime. If you suffer with fatigue one of the first things to think about it whether you’re getting enough protein!

It’s also rich in fibre, needed for the same reasons as protein (blood sugar balance and satiety), but also to support digestive health as chia seeds help to keep things regular. AND the chia seeds provide essential omega 3, something that is depleted in SO many people’s diets.

It’s also rich in anti-oxidants and tastes darn good too!
