Praise For The Casserole Queens Make-a-Meal Cookbook: Mix and Match 100 Casseroles, Salads, Sides, and Desserts

“When I need ideas for potlucks or gatherings, I call on my go-to gals, the Casserole Queens! Whether it’s gluten-free, vegetarian, or anything goes, their comforting one-pot dishes are sure to be a hit. But even better, Crystal and Sandy clearly get a lot of joy from sharing food with others—and they want you to have just as much fun, too.”
—Lisa Fain, author of The Homesick Texan Cookbook
“Those sly, sassy Casserole Queens have once more moved casserole culture forward. Their mix-and-match recipes for delicious family recipes feature gluten-free (gluten-free corn dog casserole!), diabetic-friendly, and vegetarian options to make sure everyone at the table is included.”
—Martha Hall Foose, author of Screen Doors and Sweet Tea
“The Casserole Queens have embarked on a mission that is not only getting us all back in the kitchen and cooking the food that Ma and Grandma used to make, but is also going a step further. They are moving away from our digitized, hectic, futuristic lifestyles and are preserving a style of cooking that is quickly going the way of homemade jams and pickles. They are champions of a cuisine that can truly be called American.”
—Duff Goldman, owner of Charm City Cakes
