Crystal Cook and Sandy Pollock make a mean Chicken Pot Pie, elevating the classic recipe with white wine and fresh tarragon. Their recipe won them such a following in Texas that Bobby Flay took notice and challenged them to a Throwdown. It turns out that the Casserole Queens, as the duo is known, are much more than one-hit wonders of the one-dish d

There are problems with checking out cookbooks from the library. First, you might spill applesauce bread batter on one of the pages. This can be hard to clean off. Second, you might not want to give the book back, which means frantically writing down all the recipes you tried and loved as well as all the other recipes you wanted to try. Or the ones you might want to try some day. Sigh. I tried several of the dishes from this cookbook and renewed it twice. But alas, it is now back at the library. ...more

Read this cook book on my kindle. Like most cook books this one is broken down in different categories. most of the recipes are casseroles. some are breakfast, others, chicken. some desserts, how to make things from scratch such as crusts, dough. and sauces. A lot of them look pretty good and not too hard to make. looking forward to trying a few of these recipe's.

I was waffling between four and three, because this is a cute cookbook, but it had very little to offer me. I freely admit that this is most likely because I'm already a casserole fan and I already have a large database of recipes, so most of the things in here were repeats.
There were some cool things I hadn't heard of before that I'll have to try, though. Plus, I just got an awesome blue casserole dish at the thrift store, so I've gotta christen that soon. *grin*
Worth a flip-through, at any rat

I liked that they put in recipes for homemade cream of chicken and mushroom soup to use in place of the cans also in the recipes. I didn't like that they used "cream of soups" at all. The taste and quality of canned is poor and the home mades are a big project. I'm not sure why a hash brown casserole as a side for breakfast needs cream of chicken soup. How about a quick white sauce in it's place which would also keep it vegetarian?
That said there are several casseroles I might try. I am looking

Jessica RC will lead this discussion on Sunday, March 10, 2013, 2-3pm.

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and suggest that you make it for yourself at home; you'll choose the second and bring it to share during our discussion. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and we'll have a potluck of tasty treats! Our recipe choice is the World's Greatest Chicken Pot Pie on pages 48-49.

I just got back from Fox Tales Book Shoppe, our quaint little Indie bookstore. They had The Casserole Queens come for a book signing and meet & greet. These two lovely women served us their Gooey Apple Butter Cake Casserole. Now I willingly admit I am not one who likes to cook but this recipe was so delicious I bought a cookbook for myself, not to mention, several for friends & family members for Christmas gifts. Crystal and Sandy were delightful to meet. I love the cookbook because it h ...more

The Deep Dish Chicago Style Pizza was a winner, and the crust was super easy to make by hand. The crab & asparagus casserole was deemed a "girl" dish but tasty nonetheless. Instructions are clear and hints for portion control, freezing and reducing calories are helpful. I can't wait to try more recipes!

Just not my cup of tea. All sorts of dairy, which doesn't agree with me. Some recipes made from whole food ingredients, others with cans of soup, Bisquick mix, or Crisco. I did find four recipes to try, so there should be something for everyone in here, but for me it's a short-term library book only.

I don't normally rate or review cookbooks - I own too many of them - but I got this one for Christmas and I have really enjoyed it so far. The recipes and ingredients are accessibe. One or two of the recipes haven't gone over so well, but that was probably the fault of this chef, not the authors.

Hardly any pictures (usually a no-no for me when it comes to cookbooks), but everything I tried turned out tasty. My family liked 'em all as well, and they are a picky lot. Lots of the recipes were pretty cheap to make, too.

I hesitantly checked this out of the library because I figured as a casserole book, it would be quite meat heavy. Well, yes, it was, but they actually highlighted vegetarian casseroles (yay!) and had some interesting sounding recipes. While most I won’t be making, a nice book.

Cute and quirky. So many of the recipes in this I can't eat anymore since discovering the wheat allergy, alas. But i will try a couple of their hotdish ideas that i can get away with swapping out with safer ingredients.

This Texas duo makes casseroles fun! Filled with recipes using fresh and updated ingredients to make traditional dishes (no Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup here), this cookbook elevates meatloaf and chicken pot pie way above the ordinary weeknight family dinner.

I always say that I will buy a cookbook or a pattern book if I will use at least 3 of the offerings inside. So far, I made the chicken pot pie, and it was pretty good. I will try more of the recipes and then make a more informed review.

Oh for crying out loud. For those of us that are culinary challenged, this book is a waste of time. It needs scads of pictures so we know what we're shooting for. It is practically pictureless. Skip it.

This book had some really cool recipes and hints. This is the kind of book that you need to buy, Just having it for two weeks check out period will not do.

I was not impressed by any of the recipes in this cookbook - some recipes were over-complicated while others were so simple they didn't deserve to be IN a cookbook.

Not my type of cookbook...check these casserole names out: spam casserole, corn dog casserole, frenchy toast casserole and pineapple casserole. Yea just not my style.

While I love the idea of this book and the recipes it contained, I'm not sure that the recipes fit my current dietary goals enough for me to put it on my "to own" list.

This cookbook is mostly the same old casseroles. A few new ideas, but mostly not to my taste.
