I'm a bachelor. I like to cook. I've learned a lot about dealing with a small kitchen, eating on very little money and coping with heart disease and diabetes. I've been a writer, reporter, broadcaster, assistant, jeweler, small business owner, graphic production artist, designer and pre-press technician. There may be other titles but those are the highlights.

Bachelor Shepherd’s (Cottage) Pie

This is original comfort food. Like most high-style dishes today, it started out as peasant food, a way to stretch meager ingredients into a filling meal. This is an ideal dish for leftovers. The variations can be endless depending on what you have on hand and your personal taste.
