Where Would You LOVE to Cook Today!

Today I would like to cook in This Kitchen. 
It's from the movie  "The Holiday"
 with Jude law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jack Black.
I love watching the scenes in Kate Winslet's house.
This Kitchen is so cute and warming....
Lets see what would I cook in this kitchen....
First I would have a nice cup of tea...
English Breakfast...
While I look at my cookbooks and decided...
I am thinking Paula Deen's 
Picture of Shepherd's Pie from Leftover Beef Roast and Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Shepherd Pie

  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 14 tablespoons butter, divided (1 stick plus 3/4 stick)
  • 1 1/2 pounds leftover pot roast, cubed
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 8 to 10 medium red new potatoes
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups instant biscuit mix
  • 1 1/2 cups niblet corn or mixed vegetables, prepared according to package directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Pot Roast Layer:
    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute onion in 2 tablespoons butter. Add pot roast and cook until browned. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
    Potato Layer:
    Peel and slice potatoes 1/4-inch thick. Place in a saucepan, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain potatoes and transfer to a mixing bowl. Whip potatoes with an electric mixer, mixing until moderately smooth. Don't over beat them; a few lumps are nice. Add 1/2 cup heated milk, 1 stick butter, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Whip again until mixed. Adjust thickness by adding more milk, if desired.
    Biscuit Layer:
    Combine biscuit mix and 1 1/2 cups of milk. The mix should be thinner than that of normal biscuit mix but not runny.
    Spray a 9 by 9 by 2-inch pan (or any similar casserole dish) with cooking spray. Layer mashed potatoes halfway up the sides of the dish. Next, spread a layer of corn or mixed vegetables on top of the potatoes. Then add the layer of pot roast and onions with gravy. Pour the biscuit mix over the meat.Melt 4 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over top. Bake for approximately 35 to 45 minutes or until top is golden brown. Let stand for a few minutes before serving

I think I would even have make it in Paula's Robin egg blue casserole dish. 
And of course wearing darling Robin egg blue apron
 with 2 pockets in the front and my pearls...
What would you cook....
