I’m really excited about this cookbook, called Taste of Home – Casseroles, Slow Cooker & Soups. When I saw this beautiful 384-page Taste of Home cookbook, I immediately dropped what I was doing to take a look! With 536 recipes, this book is like three separate cookbooks in one, with a dish for all occasions.
It can get pretty cold here in Port Washington, NY, so I really appreciate the variety of dishes offered in this Taste of Home cookbook that will warm me up, especially all of the different soup recipes! Nothing says winter like a steamy bowl of soup, maybe with some bread or crackers for dipping, like the mouthwatering Chicken Soup with Stuffed Noodles.
What’s really great about this Taste of Home cookbook is that with all of the holiday festivities happening this time of year, you’ll have hundreds of holiday recipes to choose from, whether the occasion is a party or a family dinner!
But the recipe I’m most excited to try out is the Toffee Apple French Toast Casserole recipe!
Casseroles make the perfect morning dish, because it’s prepared the night before. All I’ll need to do is pop it in the oven in the morning! I can hardly wait until my family wakes up to the smell of warm toffee and apples. Thank you Taste of Home – Casseroles, Slow Cooker & Soups! (Read on for the recipe!)
And if this dish sounds good, imagine the Barbequed Beef Brisket, the Texas Style Lasagna, the Crab Bisque or the hundreds of other great recipes offered in this Taste of Home cookbook. Order a copy for yourself and get cooking today!
By the way, if you want to try out the delicacy I mentioned above, here is the Toffee Apple French Toast Casserole recipe:
