Star Tribune: What's up and coming in Minnesota entertainment

500 casseroles for every occasion—sweet and savory, hearty and light, homey and festive—from beloved James Beard Cookbook Hall of Famer Beatrice OjakangasDuluth's Ojakangas takes on Minnesota's unofficial state dish in this reprint, first published in 2008, featuring 500 casseroles to suit all tastes and occasions. But don't expect run-of-the-mill potluck recipes. Instead, treat yourself to everything from fresh vegetable gratins and filling breakfast stratas to creamy crab dip and blueberry-peach bread pudding — anything baked in a dish is fair game. Her pertinent list of need-to-know hot dish basics offers tips for both novice and experienced cooks. The award-winning author writes that the idea of the book is to provide healthier, tastier casserole dishes. Mission accomplished.
