I have such good online friends. Really, I do!
When Kraft announced it’s Cooking Video Challenge I received a ton of emails and telling me about it. It made me smile to know that you guys know me so well. This is right up my alley!
If you remember way back in July the toddler and I tried some homemade Shepherd’s Pie using leftover pork, fresh veggies and sweet potatoes. The video was a disaster but the dinner came out pretty good. So when I saw Kraft’s Updated Shepherd’s Pie as one of my options to enter the contest I had to take my hand at it again. Of course, making it my own. :~)
When I made it this summer I used fresh summer veggies, like peppers, yellow squash and baby spinach. The Kraft recipe used frozen mixed veggies, which I also like. Last time I broiled it to get a crust on the potatoes, the Kraft recipe called for baking it. So I tried their technique. Honestly, broiling it worked better to get the nice sweet potatoes crust that makes the dish! But either way its good! Just goes to show, TRY! That’s the luxury you get when making your own meals.
For now, I’m just going to post the video. I want to make it one more time before posting an official recipe with nutrition info and specific details. I guess you can call these the practice attempts. ;~)
Ok, now time for a laugh. The video is almost 16 and half minutes. Well I had to get it down to under 3 for the contest. You gotta see this edit job…
LOL how funny is that? Maybe I should edit all the videos? What do you think?
Update: Just read the rules a little more closely. Apparently all assistants have to be 18 years old. :~( I should have read the rules more closely. Of course, I submitted it anyway, why not! LOL I’ll try and do another one without the toddler next week. Darn ageism! LOL
