After work I came home all prepared to cook (drum roll please) Shepherd's Pie VI by Jacquie my family loved it. My first time making Shepherd's Pie took me about 45 min. I tweaked it a little to me and my family taste glad I did make it I get so sick of the same "what's for dinner" routine.

This site can liven up the menu, for sure. Tweaking is good, too. Did you review it and tell what you changed? You can also keep notes to yourself (I think) in your Recipe Box for that particular recipe, OR as a supporting member, even post your version of the recipe (from the recipe, itself.) I recently made Shepherd's Pie for the first time, too.

I love Shepherd's Pie. I found a new recipe last year that I've made 4 times now, it's always a hit. Love it!

Shepherd's Pie is the only thing my boyfriend's step-dad can cook, so everytime he cooks for the family as a treat that's what we get. It's amazing though, he's great at it! He recently tried a vegan one since my BF's sister and mom are both vegan. It was not as good but tasted much better than I expected!

I used to hate playing the "what's for dinner" game every night too. We ate the same meals over and over and even got tired of dollar menu fast food. Since a friend of mine turned me on to AR I cook at least 2 or 3 new recipes a week and have even got my 16 year old cooking meals on her own on the 3 days a week I spend 12 hours at work. I now love cooking again and get excited when planning out my menus and shopping list every 2 weeks. Keep trying new things, you and your family will love it!
