I love cooking casseroles and soups when the weather is cold. Today as I type this it's in the upper 40's here in San Luis Obispo and I'm freezing my tush off. I know readers on the East Coast are laughing, and my New England family members are shaking their heads - but this is COLD for daytime on the Central Coast of California. So enjoy Alton Brown's recipe for Shepherds Pie and keep warm. Click HERE for his recipe. Please note when I make this I use ground turkey and substitute all dairy ingredients for the appropriate non-dairy/dairy free/vegan alternatives that are allergy friendly for my dietary restrictions.
