In this day and age (of fast food, drive through, pre-cooked and frozen) nothing beats the aromas and flavors of a well blended casserole, bubbling away in the ovenâ€"or a specialty pie or baked bread cooling on the kitchen counter. The â€œkitchen-klassicâ€ recipes of authors Wendy Louise and MaryAnn Koopmann invite readers into the world of oven cooking. Covering everything from their homemade staples of everyday fare to company-coming-for-dinner recipes, Wendy Louise and MaryAnn take you through recipe after recipe with clear instructions, old fashioned wit and wisdom, and just good-old, down-home, home-spun advice. Everything from snacks and appetizers to scrumptious desserts is covered in detail. There is even a chapter on the authorsâ€™ â€œTop Twentyâ€ Casseroles, and a specialty section â€œOutside the Ovenâ€ filled with delicious details to add to your meal.
