This is a recipe for baked peppers stuffed with rice. (Margaret and G. Franco Romagnoli)
Sweet Peppers, six large
Arborio Rice, one and a half cups
Sea Salt, one and a half teaspoons
Parsley, half cup chopped
Garlic cloves, three
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, half cup
Anchovy fillets, three
Capers, one tablespoon
Unsalted butter, one tablespoon
Oven, preheated 325F
1. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and stems
2. Blanch the shells in boiling salted water for 5 minutes
3. Cook the rice in salted boiling water for ten minutes and drain
4. Chop the parsley and garlic together until nearly a paste. Add it with 5 tablespoons of olive oil to the still hot rice and stir well
5. Mash the anchovies into the butter and cook the mixture with the remaining olive oil until the butter has melted and the anchovies have disintegrated
6. Chop the capers and olives finely into a paste and add them to the mixture while the anchovies cook. If you eliminate the anchovies cook the capers and olives until the butter melts.
7. Fill the pepper halves with the rice mixture and place them snugly in a casserole
8. Spoon a bit of the olive oil/butter mixture onto each pepper
9. Put about a quarter cup of water in the bottom of the pan to keep them from sticking
Bake for a half hour.

The Jan Hus Presbyterian Church and Neighborhood house is located on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan and is home to the Jan Hus Playhouse Theater. This church was built in 1877 and gets its name from the great Czech Religious reformer Jan Hus.
Today, Jan Hus Church practices progressive thinking and is committed to encouraging and welcoming the full participation of the LGBT community in its congregation and within the church’s hierarchy. They are also active in social outreach, serving as a place of spiritual inspiration, worship and a beacon of hope to the community it serves.
Rev. Ray Bagnuolo, the current pastor of Jan Hus is very proud of the church’s community programs which include a senior center, preschool, homeless outreach program, public cafeteria, AA meeting hall and theater. Recently, Pastor Ray participated in the workshop Carl Stillitano facilitates. After witnessing Carl’s unique ability to guide his participants with grace & integrity, he was inspired to familiarize himself with Carl’s writings. He was so impressed with Kenny & The Virgin Mary; he chose this production to bring the stage at Jan Hus back to life in order to co-create an entertainment venue which serves humanity. We fully support the efforts of Rev. Ray and the Jan Hus Church!

Hey everyone. So I have a very special request. I'm launching a Kickstarter Campaign to raise money for the video for my new single, "Let Me Live Again," and to help me complete my 2013 calendar that I've shot with acclaimed photographer, Aaron Cobbett. Please check it out and consider making a contribution. It's really hard out there for artists, and this is a new way for us creative people to generate funds to help us do what we love to do. So please please please check it out, give what you can if you can, post, tweet, email and help me spread the word. I'm going to be on this for the next week and a half, cuz we don't have much time to raise the money, so pardon my relentlessness!! :-) Thanks, as always, for your support and love!! xo
