Buffalo Chicken Shepherd's Pie

Happy Secret Recipe Club Day to all! If my last post got you excited for fall, this post will get you excited for winter. I admit, shepherd's pie is totally a cozy comfort food by the fire kind of meal, but I promise-- this one is good any time of year! Members of the Secret Recipe Club are assigned a blog each month. Who has who is a secret until reveal day (today!). The mission is to choose a recipe from the assigned blog, make it, and share it!

Banh Mi Hot Dogs with Sriracha Mayo

Banh Mi Hot Dogs with Sriracha Mayo

I’ve been slacking here lately. I know. Part of it is because we’ve been busy, and part of it is because I have so many garden veggies that I’m just making the same summer veggie staples over and over and not venturing out to anything new. Lots of tomato sauces, zucchini gratins, grilled veggies and…
