Dairy-Free Shepherd’s Pie

A friend got me a Dairy-Free cookbook to try some new recipes we can all eat. I don’t have to make things fully dairy-free anymore, but it is helpful for dishes that are hard to convert otherwise. This recipe has a bunch of set up and pre-cooking before the baking part, but I did much of it ahead, and then baked it later.

Beef and Cauliflower Stir-Fry

This recipe comes from eating a similar dish that my mother-in-law makes. I haven’t asked her for her recipe specifics, but had beef marinating and some cauliflower one night, so I decided to give it a go. Now, I will say that I have played with it a bit and make it different ways but this is the general idea.

Slow Cooker Short Ribs (yes, another one)

This is the week of me sharing recipes I enjoy making but then I forget to take pictures of them. “Oops Week” maybe? Well, this is a super easy slow cooker recipe that makes my slow cooker extra valuable. I made short ribs in the slow cooker before but this recipe takes the yumminess of short ribs and makes them even easier to cook. This is not for a spur of the moment dinner, though. It cooks for 9 !!! hours and you need to marinate it overnight first, so there’s that. But otherwise, you just dump it all in and turn it on. Super easy. And no browning of the meat required!
