    I found this recipe on an old newspaper archive from Portsmouth, NH. I am posting it for a menu for Australia Day/Waitangi Day.

    Recipe #205905

    Cottage pie, like its opposite lamb number, Shepherd's pie, was the ingenious idea of housewives many years ago, in order to create another warm and comforting meal usually from the Sunday Lunch left-overs! Cooked beef or lamb were diced or shredded and sometimes the vegetables were added to the meat mixture - such as peas or carrots. This recipe uses raw minced beef, but you could use minced cooked beef if you wish, I have added it as an alternative. The leeks were always added to the mashed potato topping when I was growing up - it was another way of utilising the leftovers! A bit like a Bubble and Squeak topping. I am not a lover of peas being added in my Cottage Pie, so I have suggested them as an option - I always prefer carrots as the vegetable to be added. Try to use mature Farmhouse Cheddar cheese for the topping - a little goes a long way, as it is so strong in flavour. The cheese is very luxurious, but takes this simple and comforting pie to a higher taste level, in my humble opinion! Serve bubbling hot straight from the oven with steamed cabbage, carrots or any seasonal vegetables and a jug of gravy.

    Forget that cardboard box and cheese powder! Well, maybe keep it for the kids. Try the real deal with four different types of real cheese making this baked pasta dish truly comforting. A sprinkling of homemade garlic bread crumbs creates a toasty crust, and a drizzle of truffle oil (optional, I've never used it) is a luxurious touch

    From Alex Grisanti in Wild Abundance - never tried, looks good.

    Recipe #459557

    Sugar and spice and everything nice. That's what great meals are made of!

    Recipe #498604

    This pizza has a pesto sauce base with chicken, artichokes, goat cheese, and sun dried tomatoes. My husband and I fell in love with it when we ate at an Ultimate California Pizza joint while on vacation. I doubt we will ever see a location near us so I created this very similar version. In the summer, I love to make this one on the grill.

    Recipe #370876

    I did a search for this recipe, and couldn't find this one, so I thought I'd share with y'all. This is so easy and yet very good! A definite kid-pleaser!

    Recipe #126007

    This recipe can be easily doubled. This freezes wonderfully and makes a great meal/snack to have on hand. You can also make these and eat them hot out of the oven. This recipe was created for Ready, Set, Cook! #6

    Recipe #116402

    This is the way my family does chicken and rice.

    Recipe #464380

    Posting for ZWT 7. This recipe comes from A recipe from Cameroon Africa.

    Recipe #455704

    This is one of my own burger recipes; I made this up one evening when we both fancied a burger, but we also wanted one with a bit of a kick, plus I needed to use up some pork sausage meat! It is such an easy recipe and yet it delivers on taste - PLEASE adjust the heat to your own requirements; it is also a very BIG burger, hence the name! Serve this burger in a standard burger bun, maybe in a ciabatta roll, or with flat breads. A side salad and baked jacket potato would also fit the bill if you are very hungry. I am very proud to say that one of my photos of this burger came first in the Bring on the Burgers Photo Competition. The photo was called Blinded by the Light, and the photo taken indoors with the strong back light. I won a Recipezaar apron, which I now wear all the time whilst I grill and barbeque! NB: You MUST use high quality, high meat content sausage meat or sausages for these burgers; the cheaper high fat content ones, will JUST not work at all!

    Recipe #312417

    Trying to come up with a healthy regular meal that is easy and tasty. Think I've found it.

    Recipe #476947

    Excellent weight watchers recipe altered to match my tastes.

    Recipe #182061

    This is my idea of comfort food. I could eat a bowl of this alone, on the couch (or next to the computer while researching new ideas on recipezaar!). It is a beautiful side dish warm or cold with grilled vegetables (or meat).

    Recipe #160787

    This one-dish meal offers delicious whole grains, veggies and lean protein. Recipe is from Kraft.

    Recipe #361862

    These are equally delicious as an appetizer, over rice or noodles, or in a sandwich. I have also used the sauce recipe with chicken and vegetables. I like to use Italian seasoned bread crumbs in place of the plain to give a bit more flavor and color. This originally came from Shape magazine.

    Recipe #91378

    This recipe has gotten me out of innumerable kitchen emergencies, including unexpected guests, finicky guests, and kids on a hunger strike. It has become so popular in our world that many guests visiting (especially from out of town) request it in advance before they get here. Similarly, many young brides have asked for this recipe as their wedding gift (don't worry--they got a regular gift too!). It can be doubled, tripled, etc., freezes and reheats well, and can handle an almost infinite number of variations (some of which I will include below).

    This is the recipe I have been using for Macaroni and Cheese since the beginning of time! Truly a classic and a staple on our family table. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. A great side dish to be served with my Meatloaf Barbecue Style!

    This is my MIL recipe she has made it for years. It is delicious. The elbow macaroni measurement is for 1--16 ounce box dry. I can't respond to zmail because of a previous issue.
