About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Two Thumbs Up for the "Biggest Book of Casseroles"

The most recent addition to my ever-expanding collection of cookbooks was given to me for Christmas from my sister. After owning it for just a few months, I have already made quite a few recipes from it and all have been delicious. So, I thought it was worth raving about a little bit.
Better Homes and Gardens "Biggest Book of Casseroles" is the name and the cover claims that it contains more than 380 "Delicious Comfort Food Favorites". Casseroles are a favorite because they are usually simple to make and extremely satisfying. I grew up eating them too, especially tuna noodle casserole, which was a staple at our house. In fact, I don't think I've made that dish once since moving out on my own (sorry, mom!)
I welcome variety, but never thought it was possible to come up with so many variations. Well, let me tell you, it is! The book features casseroles for breakfast, dessert, main dish and sides. There are ethnic dishes and the good old stand by's. Some with meat, and some without.
I recently made the "Asparagus-Ham Bake" on page 13 (see picture), and it was scrumptious down to the last bite. The ingredient list includes ham, swiss cheese, rice, asparagus (loooove it) and panko bread crumbs.
I won't give away the entire recipe here, but I urge you to go out and snag a copy for yourself. It is well worth the $20!
