Having been a "lacto ovo" vegetarian for the past 15 years I am always interested in new ways to create uncomplicated to put together veggie dishes (to go along with "omnivore hubby prepared and eaten by" dishes. I am especially fond of quick and easy casserole combos. I bought this book primarily to try out the asparagus casseroles. Very good as written; however, I always use fresh asparagus. (Yes, it is available year round where I live.) I have not tried out all the recipes; however, the ones I did try were easy to assemble and quite tasty. Very interesting series by this cookbook author. This book has 40 recipes with some rather catchy titles such as Carpet Bag Tatters, Five Soup Casserole, Lord Charley's Cream Spinach and Sweet Potato Crunch. I prefer a traditional flip back and forth hard copy recipe book; however, I am beginning to find that one on my ipad or kindle is rather convenient and certainly does not collect dust and occupy shelf space. I just may purchase a few more for gifts and maybe help save a tree at the same time.
