Shepherds Pie {paleo}


I’m not sure why I settled on paleo a recipe for Shepherd’s pie because I generally do not care for Irish food and I’ve never made a traditional Shepherd’s pie. I’ve made what I would consider to be fun twists, like a Thanksgiving Day Shepherd’s Pie and Southwest Shepherd’s Pie but the regular variety never…

Roasted Pepper Chorizo Savory Pie {paleo, GF}


Let’s talk about spice for a minute. I like spice. Sometimes I think I think I can tolerate spice a bit more than my body actually can but a bit of a kick is nice. I bought some chorizo this weekend thinking I could make some sort of egg dish for breakfast. So I set…

Southwest Shepherd’s Pie


I have an overwhelmingly large amount of ground turkey in my home. I bought two pounds today on sale at Smart & Final along with a pound of ground turkey breakfast sausage. When I came home I discovered I have four more pounds of ground turkey in my freezer. So I set out to find…

Thanksgiving Day Shepherd’s Pie


This is probably the worst time of year to be living in temporary housing. It’s the holidays and I don’t have any of my own kitchen stuff to cook with. To improvise this year, I decided to put together a few dishes that required very little prep work. You gotta have turkey on Thanksgiving. It’s…

Individual Mac and Cheese Pot Pies


After reading the details of Fromage Homage’s January challenge, along with a particularly hilarious post about an attempt to make homemade cheddar cheese, I decided I had a recipe that was challenge worthy: my mac and cheese pot pie. (See rules of the challenge here.) I figured my recipe was a shoe-in because it’s two comfort…

Bad Baby Smoked Salmon and Brie Pie


Updated 10/22/2017 Shh! I’m inventing a new pie in my head. Tomorrow’s blue plate special. I’m calling it: I Don’t Want Earl’s Baby Pie. I don’t think we can write that on the menu board, hon. Then I’ll just call it Bad Baby Pie. What’s in it, honey? It’s a Quiche of egg and Brie…

Mac and Cheese Pot Pie


This dish was inspired by KFC’s commercial for chicken pot pie. Don’t ask me how I made the leap, but truly it’s where I got the idea for this recipe. I figured pot pie and mac and cheese are two comfort foods – why not combine them? ingredients. 1 recipe of Cream Cheese Pie Dough…

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Pot Pie

Buffalo Chicken Pot Pie

If you’ve ever had Buffalo Blasts from The Cheesecake Factory or if you really love Buffalo wings, you’ll love this pot pie. ingredients. six drumsticks 1 T. crushed red chili flakes 1 T. Franks Buffalo Sauce, plus additional for garnish 2…

Zucchini Pie


I’ve been wanting to try this recipe all week. I bought the zucchini last weekend. Unfortunately between getting sick and having three dogs full-time, I’ve had little time to do much of anything. This recipe was sent to me by my Grandma, and I adapted it slightly. The original recipe called for a crescent roll…

Vidalia Onion Bacon Pie


Something drew me to this recipe and I can’t quite explain what it was. I like onions. I like them a lot. But I don’t love them. Still this recipe looked intriguing. Plus, I’ve been obsessed with making savory pies recently (AKA Quiche). I needed to make this dish before Dad left because I was…

Cornmeal and Egg Pie Crust


This is my second cornmeal pie crust recipe of recent weeks.  The first was my own recipe which was basically a cross of this one and my Perfect Homemade Pie Crust recipe. Instead of winging it, I thought I should try following actual recipe directions. This recipe is courtesy of Grandma Mo and comes from…

Veggie Pie


When I told Sis what I was making last night, she asked me if I was trying to be healthier after my Porky Pie from last Sunday. On the contrary, I had leftover spinach and cherry tomatoes to use up and couldn’t think of a better idea. Ingredients 1 Wheat Bran-Enriched Pie Crust 1 16…

Porky Pie


This recipe was inspired in part by a recipe for Vidalia Onion Pie that Grandma Mo recently sent and in part by my coworker who swears he’s going to become Pescatarian. (Fish-eating vegetarian.) After noshing on the barbecued pulled pork sliders last week, he emailed me and said he should eat pork more often and…

Spinach and Asparagus Pie


Having wanted to try a savory “pie” for quite some time now, I decided that the aging asparagus in my fridge was the perfect excuse. I found this recipe at the foodnetwork.com. The recipe was supposed to be asparagus and tomato; however, the diced tomato I bought from New Seasons did not appear very diced…
