Chicken Shepherd's Pie
I made this tonight, though admittedly, I took great liberties. I had some leftover chicken I'd cooked in the crock pot, and some leftover mashed potatoes. So I followed some of the recipe. I put the cooked chicken in my dish, topped it with some salt, pepper and I think I sprinkled on some thyme for good measure. I topped that with some chopped onion, some corn I cut off an ear I had in the fridge, and a good amount of frozen peas and carrots I had in my freezer. Oh, and some shredded cheese. Then I heated up the leftover mashed potatoes, just so they would be easier to spread. Then I sprinkled some more cheese on top and cooked according to the recipe, although I think I may have let it cook a bit longer. Anyway, the hubs and I both agreed it turned out fabulous!

Baked Zucchini Chips
I made this last night. I followed the recipe, although I ended up doubling the breading, and I used a whole egg and probably could have used two. I did follow another reviewers tip to spray each side with cooking spray, which was supposed to make these crisp. They didn't get close to crisp. They were good, and I'd make them again, but if you're looking for crisp, forget it.

Turkey Cheeseburger Meatloaf
I want to use more ground turkey, but I struggle to find recipes using turkey that aren't bland and tasteless. This is an exception! Yay! I love meatloaf, I consider it one of the key comfort foods, and was worried for nothing...this is a hearty, tasty, satisfying meatloaf, and this recipe is going in my "keeper" file. Thank you for this recipe!
