My Epic Recipe Fail plus 5 Healthy Recipes You Can Eat With Gusto

I love food and these 5 recipes had me salivating at my computer. Before I share them, I must tell you about my recipe fail this week. I made Shepherd’s pie with what would have been a nice twist – Sweet potato mashed with coconut flavoured light evaporated milk, Parmesan cheese and diary spread.  The epic fail came from the decision to use turkey thighs cut by the butcher into casserole sizes and use this instead of mince. Snap decision – Wrong decision. I didn’t realise there would be so many tiny fragmented bone in the mix…The dilemma is this, the food tastes yumm, but it is dangerous for children and unsuspecting adults. Oh and I made double the usual quantity. I can’t let such ‘good’ food go to waste though, so you know what I’ll be having for lunch for the next couple of days.

I’m still going to try this recipe again, but next time I’ll use diced chicken or turkey tenderloins.

If it works, you’ll be hearing it loud and clear!

Here are 5 top rated healthy recipes I am dying to try out. And why not? Life is short. If you get to them before me, please be kind to post pics and let me know. 🙂

  1. These look really yummy! It's a shame about your Shephards Pie, but how delicious is it with sweet potato mash? I normally use Quorn Mince as I'm a vegetarian and that works really well too :).Think I might make the Dukkah baked eggs for my man on Valentine's Weekend 🙂The Shelf Society


  2. Oh I absolutely love shepherd's pie with sweet potato gold (the orange potatoes). They are moister, and when you mash it with a drizzle of honey, butter, milk, cheese with salt and pepper and bake, they almost taste like pancakes. 🙂
