A Scotsman's Shepherd Pie
This recipe is to die for! It is so good that my husband and I thought it was quite possibly one of the best things we have ever tasted, and I have a very wide culinary repertoire having lived in three different countries, and I LOVE to cook! I have been making shepherds pie for 20 years but this will be the only shepherds pie recipe I ever use from now on! The only thing I changed was that I added more carrots and peas - I probably doubled them at least. It was wonderful and we couldn't stop eating it and my husband keeps asking me when I will be making it again (even though it is now 112 degrees outside, lol) Comfort food at it's BEST!

Mango Corn Salsa
This was amazing! I will be making this again and again! I couldn't find fresh mango's and so I actually used a bag of frozen mango pieces. Sometimes these are not very sweet, so I defrosted them by soaking them in a cup of mango fruit juice to make sure they had plenty of sweetness and flavor and added the mango and juice to the salsa. Followed the recipe for everything else and the salsa was amazing! Oh, I did add extra tomato. Good to know that frozen mango can be used in a pinch. The second night we had this, I mixed diced avocado into it, and that was great too! Thanks for a terrific salsa recipe! My husband hasn't stopped talking about it!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
I hate to be the only one that didn't like this. I guess I'm hard to please. All I could taste was the mushroom soup mix, and it was all just gluey, and grey-brown and very unappealing. I added fresh sauteed mushrooms and sprinkled with fresh parsley but it didn't help much and increased the cost. I did think it would make a good english style meat pie or pastie filling as that's what the texture reminded me of. I guess it has just confirmed that I don't really like tinned soup gravy. Sorry!
