Shepherd's Pie VI
This shepherd's pie is SO good! I have been searching for a good recipe for years now to satisfy my picky husband, and this is now his birthday request dinner :) I love the carrots under the mashed potatoes, gives it a great flavor. I don't boil them though, you lose too many nutrients that way so I just dice them and steam- it takes the same amount of time. The only ingredient change I make is the beef- I make the recipe on this site for 'Slow cooker Italian Beef' pretty frequently, which makes a lot of leftovers, so I use that! I still make this recipe as is, but I just add my already cooked beef to the onions. It makes for a very flavorful dish and is a great way to use up my leftover Italian beef. Love it!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)
Sooooo delicious! I used to go to a Greek Festival every summer that had the best Spanakopita, and this definitely matches it! I used one box of frozen spinach instead of the fresh because it was cheaper and easier, I thawed it of course and squeezed it in cheesecloth to get all the water out, and then continued with the recipe. I also made sure to let my ingredients cool before assembling the dish, as another reviewer suggested. I used double the phyllo dough on both top and bottom, because I like a really crunchy crust. This recipe makes a very thick (deep) dish, like 3-inch thick slices, so if you do not like it so thick maybe put it in a 9X13 pan instead, but I thought it was perfect. Even my husband (who is a die-hard meat and potatoes guy) loved this and said it was very satisfying. Great recipe!

Sugar Cookie Icing
Easy, delicious, and beautiful! The color stays really vivid, and has just a bit of a sheen to it. It makes the cookies look like the kind you get at a gourmet bakery! Dries nicely so that I can stack my cookies without all of them getting icing smeared everywhere. Great recipe!
