My sister and I were on dinner duty a couple of times a week growing up to help my mom out while she worked, and this β€œShepherd’s Pie” was in our rotation constantly.

It’s nothing like a traditional shepherd’s pie (or even a cottage pie πŸ˜†), but it was the second recipe I ever learned to make and is my ultimate comfort food. We used a box of mashed potato flakes, a can of cream of mushroom soup, a tub of sour cream, and a can of green beans, so you can see why it was easy for 8 and 12 year old girls to make!

In a nut shell:

2 pounds browned ground beef (salt and pepper)
2 cans French green beans
2 cups dairy-free cream of mushroom soup (search cream of mushroom soup on Daniellewalker.com)
2 cups creamy mashed root veggies (or mashed potatoes)
Cheese (I used a combo of goats and sheep milk hard cheeses – manchego is my favorite!)
Gf fried onions or crispy pork rinds

Save, share, enjoy!

And here I thought I was giving my kids the world by always making them food from scratch πŸ€ͺπŸ˜†

It’s a stand-over-the-counter in your sweats and eat leftovers for lunch type of Monday. Good thing I had that single piece of bacon leftover πŸ˜†
Still crushing on the Spiced Maple Dijon Vinaigrette and using it on everythingggg.

I give up IG. Editing captions takes too long.
You all know I love my 90’s R&B, maybe the wizard behind the curtain at IG captions does too.πŸ˜†

Combing through thousands of cover proofs for the next book and I think I found the one. πŸ§–πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’†β€β™€οΈ
Thanks for slipping this one into the proofs and giving me a laughΒ @aubriepick

Do you have any go-to paleo-friendlyΒ cakes for birthdays and special occasions?

I have an entire birthday chapter in my Celebrations Cookbook with a handful of different cakes and frostings, but this recipe for German Chocolate Cake is Ryan’s and his Dad’s favorite for special occasions! It is a layered cake rich in chocolate flavor with an indulgent pecan coconut filling. You can enjoy it on its own or with a scoop of your favoriteΒ dairy-freeΒ ice cream!
