  • 2 for 2 :)

    I made two new recipes this week, both “borrowed” from others.

    Homemade pot pie (thanks Brookey!)

    Shepherd’s pie (thanks Chef Ramsey!)

    Plates were licked, so Success!

    What yummy meals have you made lately?

      Ooh, those both look fantastic! I haven’t made anything terribly yummy lately, but now that I’m armed with The Art of Simple Food, maybe I’ll come up with something soon. :)

      The other night I experimented with Honey-mustard Chicken breast and Holy Cow!! It was deelish!! I am always looking for really easy boneless chicken breast recipes because I prefer chicken and… well the easier the better when it comes to cooking! I used 1/4 c honey and melted 1T butter than added 2T dijon Mustard and mixed. Put the 2 chicken breasts in a baking dish and spread over the chicken baked at 375 for 45 min and basted randomly through out. It was the best chicken I’ve had in a long time!

      My family loves shepherd’s pie, but I make a cheap and easy version that they love. I wish I had time to make chef Ramsey’s recipe, but with three boys pulling on me…this version is much easier! Anyway, here’s an easy quick version:

      1 lb lean hamburger, browned & drained
      1 can tomato soup
      1 can green beans
      1 can corn
      1 can diced tomatoes (I like these but most people leave them out)
      1/2 – 1 c. shredded cheese
      2 – 3 c. mashed potatoes (we love potato pearls, but they can be whatever instant potatoes you have or leftover real potatoes)

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take all ingredients except for potatoes and cheese and mix together in a 2 qt casserole dish. Spread potatoes over the top so it covers the goulash beneath. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover. Bake until “pie” is bubbling and cheese is melted.

      If you want to add some more flavor, add some worchestire sauce.
