Greek Traditional Turkey with Chestnut and Pine Nut Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
The turkey was lovely and tender but in general, we were really disappointed with the dish as a whole. We were expecting something bursting with citrus flavor and rich mediterranean flavor. The stuffing was not only bland, but with the cost of pine nuts and chestnuts, cost over $25 to make! We added more raisins and citrus in an attempt to salvage but it didn't do much to help. The stuffing mixture might be a nice start to a casserole but just didn't have bold enough flavors as was. Thankfully we also made a traditional cornbread and cranberry dressing. Disappointing. :(

Steff's Shepherd Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I'm English, as is my husband, so we tried this out of curiosity since it sounded nothing like real shepherds pie. Despite the fact that it's not shepherd's pie simply because it's made with beef -- it's actually Cottage Pie and Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb -- it was a nice flavor. Cottage pie and shepherd's pie are typically made with Worcestershire Sauce as a base so adding something like oxtail soup or a hearty veggie/beef soup would make more sense to me. Having said that, semantics aside, it was tasty and easy.
