The darling Crystal Cook and Sandy Pollock, like modern home ec teachers, instruct with wit and charm (even sharing an apron pattern right off the bat). So get this cookbook, keep it on hand in the kitchen, and never be stumped again for what to bring to a get-together or have for a family meal."

They talk about different casserole dishes/containers, how to make a towel apron, what to have to be prepared both in the pantry and with equipment. They give good simple practical advice such as how to cut calories and freezing tips. There are icons included for the recipes: freezes well, time saving short cuts, vegetarian friendly, Crystal's favorite or story, and also Sandy's. There are only a few pictures of the dishes in a 16 page color section; but these are simple recipes and the missing pictures are not critical to your success.
Our family favorites have been the Spam casserole try it, if you like the taste of ham, you might be surprised at what a good thing Spam is; and the ziti bake, which not only tastes good but also contains 5 cups-1 ½ pounds of zucchini- for those of you with gardens or generous friends. I have also used other varieties of squash successfully.
This is not a book for the confirmed gourmet cook, instead it is a cookbook for those who would like to prepare good wholesome meals, possibly freezing some and have some agreeable family fare.
In fact, I just did. For my husband's birthday, I was stumped. But, as I was reading through the Casserole Queens Cookbook, I got the idea (from the practical tips at the beginning) to get him a Dutch oven and to cook the Beef Burgundy (page 68) in it for his special dinner. That recipe suggests making the Perfect Rice Every Time (page 195) and the Rockin' Tomatoes Rockefeller (page 139) as accompaniments, so I made those, too. We had a wonderful, flavorful dinner full of vegetables and the house smelled divine. Even our 5 year old asked, "What is that AMAZING smell?" It was a lovely family celebration we won't soon forget. Thank you, Casserole Queens!
It's time to cull some of my cookbooks and this one won't make the cut.
