Easy and delicious shepherd’s pie recipe, using ground lamb, olive oil, and almost no butter. Terrifically savory!

Kick-a** harissa sauce! And a sampling of some New Year’s letters we’ve gotten over the years that we’ve never gotten over.
Sumptuous, delectable chocolate-pecan bourbon balls, an easy recipe that requires a few moments of physical violence, but for all the folks who will go “ooh… aah…”, it’s well worth it.
