Do you love to cook? Do you love casseroles? I have always been a big fan of casseroles, so I was excited to do this review! I received one 300 Best Casseroles Recipes! This cookbook has casserole basics to desserts. I have tried 6 of the recipes and they were delicious! I can't wait to try more of the recipes. I made the Sloppy Joe Mac and Cheese and it was delicious, it is a new family favorite, along with the other recipes that I made.
About the 300 Best Casseroles RecipesFriendly, soothing and convenient to make, casseroles are perfect for busy lifestyles. Home life is especially challenging when a negative economy combines with intense time pressures. Casseroles offer relief by delivering great comfort foods with convenient prep times. These dishes are perfect for busy home cooks looking for great make-ahead dishes for a quick and easy weeknight meal or when entertaining during the weekend. Households on the go can prepare and freeze single or full servings, ready to accommodate everyone's schedule.
Most of the recipes in 300 Best Casserole Recipes feature ingredients that are already in pantries, cupboards or freezers. There are entire chapters devoted to breakfast and brunch casseroles, vegetarian and gluten-free options, classic chicken dishes and even desserts. Many of the recipes also include alternatives and tips to help make them lighter and healthier.
