Lynzy Coughlin is a multi-talented mama! Not only does she have one seriously inspirational blog for the modern day mom (we have that in common!), she also works as a part-time physician assistant in the emergency room. With a serious love for doing things together with her family, it’s no surprise that they  gather together around the table at dinner time! The smell of these Turkey Stuffed Peppers when they’re baking is enough to bring anyone straight into the kitchen. What do you and your family gather around the table to eat together?
