Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Cooking for carnivores and a vegetarian at the same time is hard. And by “hard” I mean there’s always at least one of them – and possibly both of them – whining about what I’m making for dinner. As a former vegetarian, I really don’t care if there’s meat in my dinner. My husband, however, […]

Savory Shepherd's Pie

Savory Shepherd’s Pie

For a thousand reasons, Shepherd’s Pie was never appealing to me.   And as I’ve discovered, it isn’t terribly appealing to a whole lot of other people either.   And to those folks I say:  give it a try, you might be surprised.  Really deliciously surprised.
