“IT WAS DELICIOUS AND WILL BE A REGULAR!”Easy cheesyWhen my kids saw the front cover of the May issue with the Classic Cottage Pie with Cheesy Bacon Mash (p31), they said “Mum, you have to make this!”. And so we did. It was delicious and will be a regular feature through the cooler months. My 11-year-old daughter took this picture and I think she wants a job with Super Food Ideas in a few years time! Rachel Kendon, via email CROWD PLEASERThe shepherds pie feature (May, p22) sparked a renewed love for an old classic in our house!
