It’s almost the weekend! Almost every weekend at our house, these Saturday Morning Potatoes make an appearance at our breakfast. They are Mr. Wonderful’s favorite thing to have alongside eggs, bacon and waffles. Have you heard me mention that I absolutely love Poblano peppers before? If not, let me tell you, they are one of… Continue reading Saturday Morning Potatoes
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?
