Shepherd's Pie VI
First time making Shepherd's Pie and I nailed it thanks to this recipe! Followed directions exactly. Please don't review a recipe you have altered as it is not fair to the original poster! Can't wait to make this again! Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

Pollo Fajitas
Very good! Made these last night exactly as directed. Super easy to prep and cook. Flavor was just right, not overpowering. Served with flour tortillas, yellow rice and refried beans. Will definitely make again!

Simple Turkey Chili
I thought this was great! I am only giving it five stars because I felt it was a bit too much water. My chili never really thickened as much as I'd like it to. It was a bit too watery, but overall the flavor was great. I used black beans and omitted a couple spices, simply because I didn't have them. I would definitely make this again. It was quick and hit the spot! Even my 6 year old liked it and he doesn't often try new things.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
