I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Shepherd's Pie with Curd Cheese

Ugly but tasty!

Just no other way to put it.... this is just not a pretty meal. But it's very flavourful and the cream corn could be substituted for kernel corn it you want it less goopy!

4 cups cubed potatoes
3 tbsps butter 
1/2 cup milk
2 tsps dry parsley
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups curd cheese
19 oz (540ml) can cream corn
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Start by making the mashed potatoes... boil until tender, then drain and mash. Add the butter and milk, parsley, celery seed and onion powder. Set aside.

In a hot pan brown the onion and beef. Salt and pepper to taste. Place the beef in a 10 X 10" baking dish, top with curd cheese and pour the creamed corn over the top.

Dollop the mashed potatoes on to the corn and gently spread out evenly.

You can smooth the top or go over it with the tines of a fork. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes then broil for 1 or 2 minutes if you want a more golden finish.

Serves 4-6
