Rochester Post Bulletin: Casserole cooking for every occasion

A cookbook to add Midwestern flair to every occasion, reprinted in time to warm up these dreary April days.

500 casseroles for every occasion—sweet and savory, hearty and light, homey and festive—from beloved James Beard Cookbook Hall of Famer Beatrice OjakangasJam-packed (pun intended) with more than 500 recipes including sauces, dips and casseroles (“hot dishes” for those true Minnesotans) for every meal and occasion, these recipes are for more than just family reunions. Ojakangas has made the recipes versatile, explaining variations, substitutes and the best way to make a recipe ahead and bake later. She provides tips and tricks for bakeware, preparing ingredients and information on unusual or hard to find ingredients. She is very thorough with this book. It is obvious she put a lot of time and effort into its creation.
