Betty Crocker Casseroles & Slow Cooker Recipes

One of the best things I like about living in New England is Fall.  I enjoy everything about it – the changing colors of the foliage;  the sound of crisp leaves crunching under my feet as I take an evening walk;  the smell of wood stoves burning; and trips to the cider mills. Also right up there are comfort foods – which to me means casseroles and slow cookers! I recently had the opportunity to vote for the upcoming cover of the Betty Crocker Casseroles and Slow Cooker magazine which goes on sale  December 29. My choice was Cover #1.  I liked it because I collect pretty and functional casserole dishes.  I also have a collection of casserole dishes that were passed down to me from my Grandmom (who lived to be 101) and from my own mom. Some of the cool things that will be in this issue are: There are 120 great-tasting recipes32 quick-prep casserolesHearty fix-it-and-forget-it slow cooker recipes like Chili Mole, Easy Beef Short Rib Supper and Beef and Barley SoupYummy side dish casseroles like Roasted Cauliflower and Carrots with Asiago and Orange, and Brie Mashed PotatoesNew…
