This savory beef pie is so easy to make and is one of my husband's favorites. The leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day. For added flavor, you could top the potatoes with a cup of shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired.

This has been converted to US standard. They are delicious and not as sweet as some of our style cookies. Dried currants can be used in place of the raisins.
Everyone will love this one. It 's pure comfort food. Shredded potatoes, onions, eggs and melted butter are combined and put into a large casserole, and then topped off with milk and a sprinkle of cheese. Bakes up bubbly and beautiful.
Quick-cooking couscous is now even better since it's available in a whole wheat version. Fresh sage gives this side dish an earthy taste and aroma.
