Shepherd’s Pie( my first attempt?)

Shepherd’s Pie(my very first attempt):

I always wanted to try Shepherd’s Pie at home each time i see an image or hear on television?..but wasn’t sure how!!!!??but today decided to try it somehow..

image


And I watched a youtube Video to get the instructions regarding the basic steps involved in it..the one i watched was an awesome video by my favorite Chef-Laura Vitale❤❤!! Do check her youtube channel..

from there, i got the idea of preparing it..and i made changes to the recipe to as per our taste buds with some Indian Spices and removed the wine and all..and thus i had my First Shepherd Pie in life?!!it tasted awesome….

  1. Love shepherds pie and yours looks perfect and delicious.

  2. Your shepherd’s pie looks delicious! Your story about never having one reminds me a lot of my own cooking. I never used to eat brownies. (I didn’t like cake or cookies as a kid either, I know… weird). But then, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I wanted to try the GF brownie mix. So, I made brownies for the first time, but I didn’t actually know what a brownie normally tasted like. Anyway, my attempts at baking usually take a few tries, but it looks like this came out beautifully on the first try! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
