In fact, this recipe originally was inspired by my Aunt Cammy. A few years ago, Des and I were in charge of hosting a baby shower for our sister-in-law, . . .

It was the best thing in the world. So really when I think of this recipe I am really full of overexagerated feelings of warm comfort food love for my dear Steph. I'll admit when she said she was bringing sheperds pie, this was not at all what I was thinking! When I think of Shepherd's Pie...I think leftover meat. Or . . .

I got so many compliments and questions on this easy dish that I decided to share it here with you guys. This dip is warm and melty with a burst of flavor. You can serve it with crackers or . . .
