    Shepherd's Pie Recipes

    Those sounds yummy too. Didn't think of bacon. What could go wrong with adding bacon to the mix. I probably would prefer left over roast to the ground beef that is sometimes used out here. I don't care for the quality of stew meat and I haven't don't a roast in 30 year or so. There is only 2 of us. That is why I am trying the chili grind instead. I am also a mashed potatoes fan but thought that shredded potatoes sounded different. What sort of gravy did she make for the Cottage Pie? LOL Anything out here in northern California that had mashed potatoes on top would be considered Shepherd's Pie. I hadn't heard of a Cottage Pie or Shin Beef Pie. Thanks for all info! Linna
  2. Hi Chefs! I am making Shepherd's Pie for the first time. I need some advice on how to make it wonderful. Melt one cube of butter, put in one chopped sweet onion and 4 cloves of garlic. Cook until onions are translucent. In the same pan, brown 3 lbs of ground chuck beef until brown. (I am using chili grind chuck beef instead of ground chuck beef) add salt, pepper, chili powder to taste. 28 oz of diced tomatoes (drained) 2 cut of beef broth 2 Tbl of flour (to thicken) 2 cups of cheddar cheese 3 cups of fresh peas, corn, carrots (any other veggie you might recommend) Mix Well Shred 3-4 large potatoes Mix with melted cube of butter, oil, salt and pepper Cover the pan evenly with the potato mixture. then cover the top with parmesan cheese preheat oven to 425 and cook for 20 minutes. I am not sure how the gravy part of the mixture is going to come out. I am using shredded potatoes instead to make it different. Do you have any special Shepherd's Pie recipes that you would like to share. Welcome all advice. Thanks, Linna
  3. I have a few terra cotta cookware pots and some flat baking sheets. They cook great. I have been looking for one like the one you have. Round, not too tall that I can cook shepherd's pie in. My other pans/pots are Le Creuset type. They are good but can be very heavy. Good choice!

    Mushroom Recipes

    Since I am cracking up, I decided to do some cracking myself. 2 double yoked eggs, scrambled with Pink salt Pepper Splash of cream Sauté : Gypsy yellow peppers, diced Maui sweet onions, diced Maitake mushrooms, chopped After sauté the veggies, put in your scramble mixture. Scramble and towards the end add some of your favorite cheese. I did Jack. Those maitake mushrooms are very flavorful with being too strong. This was very yummy and easy to make.

    Your Favorite Coffee?

    Fiona, I feel the same way. When Starbucks move 2 miles from the house, I thought I would try some. I found that I could stand flavored coffee with breve and everything else in to hide the coffee. It costed 2 arms and a leg so I gave up. I did fall in love with their green without sugar and extra water. Tea all the way for me.

    Double yoke

    All I buy are double yoked eggs. Usually get a flat of them. There are jumbo, jumbo 2 and jumbo 3 size. Normally I don't get double yoke out of the jumbo 1. I'll get a few out of the jumbo 2. In the jumbo 3 size, they are 99% double yoked. Around here you can't find jumbo 2 or jumbo 3 in the grocery store. I go directly to the egg farm to get them. They are fresh and yummy.
  8. Leslie, this sure bring me back to when I was a kid. When I was sick my mom would make me homemade cream of mushroom soup. Yummy recipe. You should make a book with all your recipes. I would buy one.
  9. I have gotten a bunch of mushroom from a friend. Looking for some recipes to highlight them. I was given: King Trumpet Mushrooms Maitake Mushrooms White Beech Mushrooms Shiitake Mushrooms I have mostly cooked with the regular store type. Anyone have any ideas on bring out the best flavor of these mushrooms. Thanks bunches!
  10. Oh my! This sounds delicious. I'm going to have to make it.

    What kind of a cook are you?

    Hi April. Are you moving to Northern California any time soon? I would love the recipe for the shrimp and okra gumbo. I love to cook too but sometimes not well enough to cook. I make great breakfast and lunch but by dinner I am worn out. . I make sure my hubby always has a great lunch so he doesn't eat fast food.
  12. Hi Peer, Welcome! I take mine everywhere I go. My hubby has a man bag for his. Funny thing about these tablets, the more you use them the more you find use for them. Edit: I did draw the line at the doctors office. I refused to be weighed while holding it.

    Lobster Tail Chowder.

    Yummy! Anything with lobster tail sounds good to me.
  14. I have always had trouble with hot dogs. My hubby likes them so I found some tastie ones. They are Snake River Farms Kobe beef gourmet frankfurter. Called the "the ultimate Haute Dog" The ingredients are: beef,water salt, containing less than 2%. of corn syrup, dextrose,mustard, sodium phosphates, paprika, sodium lactate,sodium diacetate, sodium erythorbates, natural flavorings, sodium nitrite. I don't know if they are better or worse than others but he likes them and doesn't get sick to his stomach eating them. What types of hot doggies do you like or what do you condider the best of the worst?
