Hey readers! My name is Kristin and I am thrilled to be writing with Clarks Condensed today. Let me introduce myself — I am a writer for Marie Callender’s Meals and other ConAgra brands. I currently live in Chicago with my fluffy Bichon Frise, Joey. When I’m not jogging, binge-watching on Netflix or taking a bubble bath, I challenge myself on the weekends by trying new recipes—I have about a 88% success rate.  My favorite dishes include scrambled eggs on a toasted English muffin the morning, Mediterranean salads for lunch, and stir fry (with lots of rice) for dinner. I am always searching for unexpected yet delicious food combinations to try!

In Chicago it’s getting quite chilly as the first day of fall approaches. But—to be honest—Midwest  weather has been quite crazy lately and I never know what Mother Nature has planned for the day. For the colder days, I like to use my oven to warm up the kitchen a bit, as I get cold quickly and want to avoid using my space heater until winter hits—it’s the worst in Chicago! Why not kill two birds with one stone and get warm while I bake?

One of my favorite recipes to bake for fall is an easy Shepard’s pie. This entire recipe takes less than an hour to make and it’s been a favorite among friends and family. I love baking this pie for dinner because I always have leftovers for the next night. I recommend a side of  mushy peas for a real UK feel. When I visited London during my semester abroad in Europe, restaurants and pubs served mushy peas with most of my meals. Hope you enjoy!
