FFwD - Tuna-Packed Piquillo Peppers

I'm tired everyone. I've been up so long that I can't even calculate how long I've been up.  Yes I'm that tired. But I'm happy.  I'm content.  And I'm stimulated. I have so much to process. I have to sit alone with things and let my experiences percolate. Tonight I met Dorie and 'The Original Dorista', her husband, Michael. I also met several of the Doristas I've been cooking with in this fun and challenging project, French Fridays with Dorie. The evening was such a pleasure!

I'll have more to say as the @IFBC progresses and I get some sleep. It just seemed kind of sacrilegious to not get my post up for this particular French Friday when I am with Dorie and so many of the Doristas. 

I wish I could have found the Piquillo  peppers but I didn't and I ended up using red peppers that were just bell peppers in water. Still, this was good.  I recently bought olive oil infused with Tuscan herbs and I used that for the olive oil to add flavor since I didn't have the piquillos that Dorie says are slightly smoky and sweet. Heating them intensifies all the flavors and with a nice baguette made an easy and delicious light supper. 

I can't figure out how to put in links on my iPad. I think I'm just too tired to think about it! You all know where to go to find all the  French Fridays with Dorie posts. 


  1. Sounds like everyone had a blast. I was so sorry to miss it:-(

  2. It was so fun to meet you!
    I know I am a week late in commenting, just getting home today!

  3. I'm just catching up from last week. You are so funny about the iPad. I haven't yet managed to write a post on one, and I definitely have oodles of trouble commenting from it. It's supposed to be so user-friendly.
    Your peppers look delicious! I liked the tuna salad part best, better than being stuffed into peppers.
    If I didn't already tell you in another post, it was wonderful to meet you in person! Looking forward to all the Friday cooking ahead.
