For the last week I have been sick with a cold, been a little stressed (more on this at a later date) and have been in need of comfort . . . I don’t just mean a hug or kiss or even quite time along with a good book and a glass of wine . . . no I mean FOOD!!!! . . . you know those special dishes you had as a child that just seemed to make the world seem brighter . . .

Well I decided to make a dish that I find great pleasure in and that is totally (and I mean totally) not good for you . . . this dish is not a childhood favorite as I just discovered it a few years ago when having dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in San Jose (no its not cheesecake) . . . its “Shepherd’s Pie” . . . now I have had other versions (including one that my daughter makes) but they have never come close to the one at the Cheesecake Factory . . . soooooooooo . . . I decided on this rainy day to try and bring some comfort to my husband and myself by trying to make this dish . . . this meant that I went through all my cookbooks (boy I have a lot of these – looks like its time to clean the old bookshelf) . . . I even went on line hoping that somewhere out there is the exact recipe for the Cheesecake Factory’s Shepherd Pie . . . no such luck . . . sooooooo I took a few ingredients from all the recipes I did find interesting and came up with my own version . . . well I am heard to tell you that it turned out pretty great – hey dear hubby even liked it enough to have seconds . . . soooooooo I now have a new recipe to add to my file and one that brings comfort to my husband and myself . . .
BTW . . . what is your number 1 favorite comfort food?????? . . . mine will always be “rice pudding” . . . that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by . . .
