It's the word many of us cringe upon hearing: "casseroles." For others, thoughts of the classic green bean casserole, tuna noodle casserole or chicken tetrazzini may conjure blissful childhood memories. Whatever your connection to casseroles may be, these old-fashioned baked dishes are making a comeback, this time with fresh ingredients and a from-scratch approach. In fact, a new cookbook, "Not Your Mother's Casseroles", is packed with recipes that modernize this retro genre of baking. With a variety of dessert casseroles to choose from, from berry-filled clafoutis to creamy tiramisus and bread puddings, you'll be baking them up all of the time!
