“Sampling our new Taste of Home cookbook recipes and all sorts of products before we offer them to our customers is the best part of my job in merchandising at Publishers Clearing House!”

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!

Taste of Home Casseroles, Slow Cooker & Soups

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:

Toffee Apple French Toast Casserole

Prep: 25 Minutes + Chilling

Bake: 35 Minutes


8 cups cubed French bread (1-inch cubes)

2 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

¾ cup packaged brown sugar

¼ cup sugar

1¾ cups milk, divided

2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided

½ cup English toffee bits or almond brickle chips

5 eggs


Place half of the bread cubes in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish; top with apple. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugars, ¼ cup milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth; stir in toffee bits. Spread over apples. Top with remaining bread cubes.

In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs and remaining milk and vanilla until blended; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Yield: 8 servings

Yummy! Enjoy!

    Anything with the “Taste of Home” on it always has GREAT recipes-and the pictures are truly amazing! It is sort of like what the 50’s were with the “RED COOKBOOK” (otherwise known as the Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook)-they even have a magazine which I highly recommend getting if you love to cook and you want different recipes that your family would enjoy. Also this time of year they have amazing cookie recipes and nothing like making a gift of cookies for friends and neighbors this holiday season!
