I’ve just found out about something called the “Texas Cottage Food Law” (thanks Alyssa!) which would make it legal to use a residential kitchen to run a food establishment. It’s currently illegal to have a home bakery of any sort in Texas – which is very sad! Think of all the delicious desserts and breads that people are missing out on!
So to all my foodie friends, please take 30 seconds of your time and call either 1-800-252-9600 or 512-463-2000 to let Governor Perry know that you support SB 81! Easy as that! Seriously, you can just call and say “Hi, my name is _______, and I support SB 81. Thank you.”
Please spread the word and help make it possible for home bakers to legally share their talents! You know you’d like me to bake something for you!

This is a recipe that my mom would make for our family. This is such a simple and delicious meal that has a great balance of veggie, meat, and carbs. I recently made these for my coworkers and had forgotten how much I love them – I hope you try them yourself and enjoy them too!
Stuffed Bell Peppers
6 large bell peppers
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
16 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup long grain rice
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
Dash of pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut tops off peppers – discard seeds and membranes. Chop enough of the tops to make 1/4 cup of diced pepper; set aside. Cook the whole peppers, uncovered, in boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove and dry well. Sprinkle the insides of peppers lightly with salt.
Cook meat, onion, and diced peppers together until meat is brown and veggies are tender. Drain grease from pan. Add tomatoes (liquid included), uncooked rice, water, salt, worcestershire sauce, and a dash of pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes or until rice is tender. Stuff the mixture into the peppers. Place the stuffed peppers in a baking pan and bake covered for 30-35 minutes.
