Not Your Mother's Casseroles - Faith Durand I'm not going to rate the book quite yet because I haven't made any of the recipes out of it BUT from what I have seen, many of the recipes look delicious and wholesome, which is exactly what i'm looking for out of a cookbook like this: things I can make for dinner, not a special occasion.
One of my favorite things about the recipes so far is that the author happens to be like me and not feel that meat is ABSOLUTELY VITAL IN EVERYTHING EVER (a great frustration because not only do i dislike eating meat every day, but it gets expensive to eat the amount of protein many Americans expect in a meal...especially in a household of two fairly picky eaters) so a lot of the recipes are either already vegetarian (without relying heavily on soy products) or very easily turned vegetarian. That being said, she does have a pretty awesome-sounding section filled with meat recipes, so it's not a vegetarian cookbook either.
This is the second casserole cookbook I have bought recently and it's definitely far superior to the other one, which I will review when I've had a chance to look through the recipes more thoroughly.
