coming out of cd-celebrating mode for story time and a recipe!

a friend of mine recently went l.a. bound- going out to receive training in order to become a certified bikram yoga teacher! she came over to have a last supper, seeing as she'll be gone for three months.

because we both are horrible planners, we were gonna wing it. and when she got here, we had some trouble deciding what to make. eventually settling on shepherd's pie, we set out to the store for ingredients :)

i'm not the biggest fan of mashed potatoes, but do enjoy it with the combination of pie crust, corn, and hamburger! give this yummy recipe a whirl, and you'll see what i mean...

shephard's pie 1

~ 2 lb russet potatoes
~ 1 pound lean ground beef
~ 1/4 tsp ground allspice
~ salt & pepper
~ 1/4 cup watter
~ 2c fresh or frozen corn kernels
~ pinch sugar
~ 2/3 c milk
~ 1/2 c heavy whipping cream
~ 1 pie crust (or two small ones)

~ boil and peel potatoes; mash them until they are completely smooth, adding the milk and cream, and adding salt and pepper to taste
~ preheat oven to 350
~ mix beef and allspice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl by hand; then brown meat in a skillet over medium-high heat
~ defrost corn (if frozen) and toss with a pinch each of sugar and salt.
~ layer beef, corn, and potatoes in your pie crust
~ bake 30-40 minutes, or until top of the potatoes are slightly browned.

  1. i've never had shepherd's pie. but it does always remind me of the episode of Friends where rachel tries to make one and fails.

  2. I've never made or bought this, but it looks really yummy! I'm totally hungry, can I have a slice? :P

    Happy Thursday, Chantilly! :D

  3. I've only tried shepherd's pie from trader joe's but this recipe looks like it would be even tastier. I can't wait to try this.


  4. Don't leave celebration mode just yet! I listened to your CD on my way home from work today. Which is the ultimate compliment because I liked it enough to update my iPod. :-)

  5. holy shepherds pie, that looks good!

  6. Love the blog - so maybe we can follow each others blog!? ;)

  7. thanks for leaving me a comment chantilly! shepherd's pie is one of my favorites. your music is really good!! i'll add it to my music wishlist. :)

  8. I've actually never had shepherd's pie. I've been really tempted to try the Anne Burrell recipe for it on occasion, but it looks kind of intimidating. Yours looks much more user friendly and I am the biggest fan of mash potatoes!! The pie crust looks divine:)

  9. This looks yummy! So great to see your friend off with good eats!

  10. Yummm, that looks absolutely amazing! Definitely have to try this recipe!
