Change my last name and it wouldn’t matter, it would still be my favorite food! To this day it’s a dinner that makes me happy.

But that’s the beauty of the Shepherd’s Pie, you can put whatever vegetables you like in it.

I am so excited to share this great recipe with you for a clean, non-dairy chocolate milk! Chocolate milk can be a great treat – a nice, smooth, cold energy boost.

What makes me most excited and proud about this recipe is that I developed it 100% from my own creative mind . . which is pretty amazing considering I am a tax accountant by profession. 🙂

This man was the head chef for the Dutch embassy in Japan, and happened to have some time off to be our guide while his diplomat boss was home for vacation. As you can imagine, food was a core element during my stay there.
