Sassy Southwest Stuffed Shells: When I was a kid, my mother made this dish frequently. When I found her recipe on an index card, I quickly copied it. I've made relatively few alterations throughout the years to keep that homely feel.

Sausage and Egg Casserole: This dish is the perfect blend of eggs, sausage, toast and cheese. My mom and I enjoy this sausage breakfast casserole because it bakes up soft and golden.

Mother’s Ham Casserole: This gammon casserole recipe, which was a favourite of my mother's, always reminds me of her when I make it. It's an excellent use for leftover gammon from a holiday dinner.

Quick Tater Tots Bake: I prefer to cook this Tater Tot dish when I don't have much time before supper. If we have unexpected company, I simply double the recipe and use a 13x9-inch pan. I call it the Please Stay Casserole!

Cheesy Vegetable Casserole: I'm delighted to share this 50-year-old Cheesy Vegetable Casserole recipe. My mother-in-law taught me how to cook. It's one of my family's favourite dinners, and it makes enough for a large gathering or a few people when sliced in half.
