Cookbook Reviews... The Taste of Home Casseroles and One Dish Meals Cook Book

The Taste of Home Casseroles and One Dish Meals Cook Book was published in 2012 – it is a magazine special issue. To be honest, the book wasn’t full of oven casserole dishes that have plenty of cheese and cream soup – there are a variety of fresh new casseroles, pasta dishes, wraps and top-of-the-stove skillet meals.
As always, there are lots of great photos to get you in a cooking mood.  There are 18 freezer meal recipes, potluck choices, and I counted only 5 recipes in the prepared mix section of the index but 36 recipes under the vegetable category!  I didn’t see any repeats of old recipes either – the ideas looked new and fresh.  We found plenty of choices for sampling and sharing.

  1. I made the Chicken Tater Bake tonite for dinner. I substituted home canned turkey instead of chicken as I am low on chicken. It was still delicious and before the meal was over, I already had a request to include it in the menu rotation. Thank you for another yummy recipe. Julie

    1. It is good, isn't it...and just the right season to make it. I usually interchange home canned turkey or chicken, whatever I have on hand. Glad your group liked it.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
