Recipe: Shepherd’s Pie + Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese & Pear

Hungry for something really hearty on a cold winter’s day? Try my take on Shepherd’s pie. I first tried and fell in love with Shepherd’s Pie way back when Tom and I were working together but not yet admitting we had a thing for each other. We had a work Christmas party at an Irish Pub and they served it, with all of the rich and flavorful meat and veggies on the bottom, and creamy whipped mashed potatoes on top. As usual my first thought was – I can make this at home!

My favorite recipe for traditional shepherds pie is this one, but in this video I share my version which I have tweaked to make a little healthier. Trust me though, it is just as good.

The second recipe in the video is a great side dish or lunch dish. I’m obsessed with beets, and that is a good thing because here are some of the benefits: high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). They also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
