5.0 out of 5 stars Much more varied than I was expecting March 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my wife as she loves this sort of cooking - and she loved the book. Anything that can be cooked in bulk and frozen as well as anything that is a one-pot meal is very welcome in our house. I have to say I was expecting slow-cooking meat and gravy type recipes but this collection is far more eclectic - and there are 25 recipes to choose from. I especially liked the Mexican-style options.

The directions are simple and easy to follow and the addition of 'make ahead' and 'variations' information is very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Set of Casseroles April 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You cannot find better cookbooks than the ones created by Marg. This is another lovely addition to her Grandma's Best Series. I jump on any new one she has because they never fail to please.

I quickly made a casserole so I could tell about it. I made Stacy's Spanish
Chicken Supreme. It was delicious. I did have saffron and the smell in the kitchen even made the dogs look up.

We love seafood and the next recipe I will fix is the Seafood Supreme. It looks like something I could make for my seafood loving friends and I would get to enjoy the party with them.

Thanks, Marg for another outstanding cookbook for my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Yummy Comfort Food March 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just thinking about casseroles gives me a sense of peace and comfort.

These casserole dishes are wonderfully easy to make, full of flavor, and nicely organized and laid out. Well, we expect that of Marg Ruttan!

What makes these casseroles really special to me though, is that the ones I've tried really bring me back to that time sitting at my grandmothers house - smelling the casserole in the oven - a simpler time.

So far my favorite recipe is the Ham and Asparagus Casserole. It's fresh and healthy, tasty and smells delightful in the oven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious! May 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My fanily are big casserole fans but we tend to always do pretty much the same 3 or 4 tried and tested standby recipes so I got this in the hope I'd find some new ideas. And that's exactly what I got - loads of mouthwatering ideas. Really enjoyed the beefy cheese pasta bake and Swiss steak with gravy. Love the sound of the honey mustard chicken - planning to try that this week. These recipes are simple to follow and give great results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reminds Me of Home March 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an wonderful collection of twenty-five tasty and delicious casserole recipes.

Reading through the recipes was kind of nostalgic, I saw several that reminded me of the casseroles my mom used to make when I was little. The one recipe that really grabbed my attention was the 'Beefy Cheese Pasta Bake'. My mom fixed something very similar to this all the time when I was growing up and it was great. I couldn't resist and tried the author's recipe. It turned out every bit as good as I hoped it would!

The author provides clear and easy to understand directions for each recipe in this collection. It is obvious the author cooked and tested each recipe offered which further increased my confidence in being able to produce a successful dish my family would enjoy.

Good collection of recipes that includes a wide assortment of dishes, easy-to-follow instructions for wholesome, stick-to-the-ribs, comfort food.

Very Highly Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reliable collection of casserole recipes! March 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marg Ruttan has done it again! I've used some of the other cookbooks in her series and they are all quite good. Real, everyday food that is practical for the home cook. What I like about this book is the recipes are not the usual ones I am familiar with. She has quite an assortment of casseroles that she has created herself using easy-to-find ingredients. I especially like how she included three casserole recipes for leftover turkey. A fresh idea when another meal of turkey soup and leftover turkey sandwiches gets tiring!

A couple of the dishes use canned soup, which can be worked around (eg. use a quick white sauce with mushrooms instead of canned mushroom soup), but most of them don't. Where appropriate, she includes helpful tips and variations on a recipe so you can mix up your menu.

Last night, I cooked the Swiss Steak with Gravy. My mom used to make something similar, so I was intrigued. The recipe was really easy to make and my family loved it. I served it with mashed potatoes and it was total comfort food. Like a hug from Grandma herself!

I'd recommend this cookbook to anyone looking for a good, reliable collection of casserole recipes to add to their repertoire!

I was not impressed with the book, maybe I expected more. The recipes might be ok for new cooks, I guess I have made or have similar cookbooks. Read more

More About the Author

Marg Ruttan was born into a family of cooks and she seems to have learned to cook by osmosis. Mind you, her cooking skills often came at the expense of initial failures!

The first time Marg made shortbreads they turned out to be like hockey pucks! Her brave hubby, Fred, used to take them to work and dunk them in his coffee to soften them up. One of his buddies commented, "Those cookies are so hard we could throw them at the cement wall and they wouldn't break". Needless to say, Marg was mortified. However, she's made thousands of shortbread since that time and they have gotten rave reviews.

Another of Marg's early adventures in cooking involved apple pie. Marg and Fred were having friends for supper and she baked an apple pie. Everything was going well until she went to serve the pie. Once on the plate, the pie looked rather flat and her guest commented "Guess we're having economical pie tonight!". Marg quickly learned that you have to heap the apples up inside the pie crust to get enough to make a really good pie. However, all was not totally lost, the pastry was excellent!

Through these types of trial and error adventures Marg realized that recipes need to be simple and uncomplicated. They need to be easy to read and follow and on top of that they need to be fairly quick to make. Thus, she began collecting, creating and compiling recipes.

As a young woman, Marg wrote a cooking column for her daily newspaper for several years. Then when she moved West she again wrote a cooking column for some time. In 1992 she published her first cookbook, "Traditions of Home Cookies and Muffins" and in 1993 she published her second cookbook, "Traditions of Home Casseroles Soups and More". Both became best-sellers and were also published by a French publisher and distributed in Quebec, Canada and the French speaking parts of Europe and Africa.

Due to some fairly major health challenges, Marg allowed those two cookbooks to go out of print. However, with her health restored and coming up on the 20th anniversary of her first successful book, she has once again ventured into the cookbook publishing world.

Much has changed in those 20 intervening years and it's now possible to create a cookbook without need of paper and large investments in thousands of copies of any one book. That has provided the opportunity to create cookbooks that are much more reasonably priced and Marg is happy to pass those savings on to her readers.

Marg's cooking heritage goes back several generations. Her maternal grandmother, Maggie Jane, left her home town of Gaspe, Quebec and traveled to Schenectady, New York in the late 1800s to be with her sister-in-law who was expecting a baby. She helped the doctor deliver that child and cared for it and her sister-in-law for several weeks.

The doctor she had assisted got to know her and discovered her love of cooking. He offered her the opportunity to become an apprentice chef at the Van Wyck Hotel, which she promptly accepted. Some time after her apprenticeship was completed Maggie went back to Gaspe where she cooked in a lumber camp for years. Two of her sons became cooks and one of her daughters, Marg's mother, also became a cook, working at a hospital, a naval base and a children's home in that capacity.

On her Dad's side of the family, Marg's paternal great grandfather was a cook. He had nine boys, including her grandfather. As was the custom of those times, he taught all his boys to cook. Several of them became cooks and many of the next generation also became cooks. And several in Marg's own generation and the generations that followed also were and are involved in the food industry.

Good family fare with its comforting flavors and fragrances is the focus of Marg's culinary artistry. Over the years she has adapted, invented and collected recipes that are true flavor feasts. She has now compiled these recipes into a series of cookbooks that you will find indispensible in your kitchen. With her own grandmother, her Mom, who was grandma to her children, and now herself being a grandma, Marg wanted to focus her recipes on the women in her family who brought good food to the table, thus the series of "Grandma's Best" cookbooks has been born. You'll want to be sure to check out all her cookbooks and you may well find it difficult to decide which one you like best!
