Texas Cottage Pie

It would be fair to say we are a beef eating family. So, when Foodbuzz sent me an email about an opportunity to pair up with the Texas Beef Council* to share some fun recipes featuring lean beef I found it very hard to say no.  With that said, over the next few weeks I will be posting some of my fun, tasty beefy shenanigans.  This first recipe is inspired by a traditional English Cottage Pie.  Quick!  Pop quiz:  What is the difference...

Cornbread Topped Turkey and Green Chile Casserole

Mexican Rice

Happy Cinco de Mayo!   Where I live May 5th is celebrated as a day to enjoy some tasty Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, have a few beers, and get together with friends and family.   I love Tex-Mex, which I think I have said before, so any excuse is a good when my favorite food is involved.  One of my favorite Tex-Mex recipes is for Mexican Rice.  This side dish is often done very poorly, which is sad because it is such an easy dish...
