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!

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Give this spicy twist on a classic comfort food a try! You can even add more spice or a chopped banana or jalapeño pepper for more heat 🔥 


4 oz Mexican link sausage (remove meat from casings) 

1 lb ground beef

1 lb potatoes

1/3 cup cream cheese

1 tbsp butter

1/4 cup cream corn

1/2 cup kernel corn

1/2 bell pepper, diced

 1 small onion, diced

1 1/2 tbsps chili powder

2 tsps cumin powder

1/4 tsp cayenne powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

sprinkle smoked paprika


Peel the potatoes and cut into chunks. Boil in water until tender then drain and mash with cream cheese and butter. You should have about 3 1/2 - 4 cups of mashed potatoes. Set aside.

In a large skillet brown the ground beef and sausage meat "smooshing" it with the back of a spoon for about 10 minutes. Add the onion and bell pepper along with the chili, cumin, cayenne and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes.

Spray an 8" baking dish with cooking oil and add the meat layer. Mix the cream corn and kernel corn together and spoon over the meat.

Dollop the mashed potatoes on top and spread evenly. Top with shredded cheese and sprinkle with some smoked paprika.
Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until nice and golden.
Serves 4
