    March 10, 2015DishinandDishes

    Cottage Pie is an English/Irish dish that is kin to the more well-known Shepherd’s Pie, the difference being that Cottage Pie is made with beef, whereas Shepherd’s Pie is made with lamb or mutton (Get it?

    August 27, 2009DishinandDishes

    Okay, I admit it. I’m a sucker for anything with pie crust. So a traditional shepherd’s pie with a crust of mashed potatoes seems sometimes, well….unfulfilling.
