I started cooking from the New York Times Heritage Cookbook that I found in my parents’ kitchen when I was about 12 years old. What I love is the way the peppers and onions absorb the flavors of the orange juice and white wine.  By the way, if at all possible, use freshly squeezed OJ.  To this day, this is one of favorite recipes to make for my family and for when we have guests for dinner.
