Casserole recipes are easy to make, tasty, and nutritious too!

The selections are endless.  You can start with sea food casseroles, like tuna, with or without noodles, go
for chicken, hamburger, vegetables, or potato casserole.

These tasty dishes are a breeze to create from scratch too.  They run the gamut from breakfast to brunch

My mom and me in 1972.
A collection of vintage casserole dishes from the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, including the ever famous, tuna
noodle casseroles.

The casserole dish was every mom's favorite recipe from coast to coast back in the 1950's thru the 1970's.  
We were always going to some sort of family affair or a friends home.

The casserole recipe was all important for bringing just the right dish to the gathering.  Perfect for that one
dish meal at home too.
