Not Your Mother's Casseroles Cookbook Review
"Casseroles are such a classic dinner dish that I was so pleased to see it covered by the 'Not Your Mother’s®' series. While I knew about the casserole’s dependability and longevity, I was pleasantly surprised at their diversity. Who knew that you could create pancakes, like the Baked Buttermilk Pancakes (on pg. 17), with a casserole dish! Scattered throughout the pages are bonus trivia boxes that give you a bit of background about a particular ingredient or cooking technique which is always a fantastic way to go from being a decent cook to a great one. There’s a useful section in the back as well that has simple recipes to make while your casserole is cooking so there’s no need to cross-reference with anything else! This is going to be that cookbook you take out again and again!"
"Reinvent your traditional casserole with Faith Durand's Not Your Mother's® Casseroles, cookbook.

"In my mind, casseroles have a rather poor reputation as a bland and unappealing dinner dish. If you’re like me, then Not Your Mother’s® Casseroles by Faith Durand will blow your mind. This cookbook elevates the casserole from boring supper to culinary masterpiece. Sure, this book has recipes for the basics, but where it really shines is with the more contemporary casseroles. After all, when was the last time you had a casserole with tempeh in it? Even the most ardent casserole haters will go bonkers over the recipes included here. It’s time to reintroduce casseroles into your cooking repertoire, and this cookbook will lead the way."
