The cooler weather is here, and we’re all thinking about bundling up and making some nice casseroles (or hot dishes as they say in the Minnesota area! – can I just tell you I think that is the funniest thing ever?)
Anyway, I’ve compiled a roundup of some really yummy casserole dishes that you should give a try this winter…even the tuna noodle looks great, and I’m definitely not a tuna noodle kind of girl!
