Things… they are a changin’. That’s right! As we’re quickly approaching 10,000 Facebook fans, we’re working hard behind the scenes to bring you a brand new, more user-friendly SouthernBite.com. This is where you come in! If you’d like to see something different or an additional feature, let me know. Maybe there’s a specific navigation you’d like to see right up top. My goal is here is to give you an easy navigable site with quick recipes that use everyday ingredients. I welcome your comments and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that while we’ll try our best to meet as many requests as possible, some things might be outside of our expertise and budget. Thanks, y’all! Hopefully, when we get through with all of this, I’ll have some more time to share a few more stories with you, but for now… here’s another recipe.
Stuffed Peppers are a favorite at our house and this recipe is super simple using Hunt’s Family Favorites Seasoned Tomato Sauce for Meatloaf – you can find it in the grocery store with the other tomato sauce. (By the way, if you haven’t used this stuff for meatloaf yet, you HAVE to try it!) Though they do take a little while to cook, the prep is short and easy. And if you don’t have any instant rice, you can always use cooked rice instead. I hope y’all enjoy another of my family’s favorite recipes.
