Last week, Nathan and I tried out this little casserole dish I found from The Girl Who Ate Everything. I just knew Nathan would snarl his nose in disgust--he's not much of a casserole man, but much to my surprise he ate it all . . . and the leftovers. That's when I know the recipe is a keeper. :)

The other recipe we tried this week was one I was especially excited about. A few weeks ago when Nathan and I were yard saling, I picked up a New York church cookbook for $.25. Currently, the only church cookbooks I have in my library are southern, so I was super excited to try some New York potluck dishes. When my eyes glanced at "Tater Tot Casserole," I knew my hubby would love it! Meat, potatoes and cheese--3 of his favorite things! He wasn't disappointed. This has certainly been man approved!
