    Jenny, I am so thankful for this post, I’m going to add two of these recipes to next week’s meal plan. I love making your recipes “skinny” and weight watcher friendly! I was just thinking of how much I dreaded meal planning, but now with two out of 6 meals planned already, I’m thinking it will be easy next week!! Thanks again!

      Posted on Thanks, everyone!Dizzy: Whedon or no Whedon, I’d love to see a Wonder Woman movie at some point.Kristina: YES, Birds of Prey. That would be aiznmag. Also: She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Manhunter. I think some of the X-Ladies could carry their own flicks. And Black Widow could have had an awesome stand-alone thing if they hadn’t made her part of Iron Man 2.Caroline: I was also hoping Number One would pop up! Or Saavik. I also enjoy movie-Pepper I suppose it’s not so much that movie-Pepper needs to be an asskicker, it’s that there needs to be some female equivalent of the Iron Man movie with an actress as wonderful and well-cast as RDJ (though I certainly would not object to ARMOR ). And Famke should definitely play another supe at some point.Matt: I’m with Kristina on this one. I have NEVER cared about Thor. The only way I will be excited for that movie is if they cast Journeyman.

    Do you think any of these would freeze well for make ahead meals? I’m so busy during the week and travel far for work. I’m always looking for something to freeze ahead so that my family can always have a home cooked meal.

    I’ve been following you for a while now, and I LOVE your site! I’m a flight attendant so these casseroles are great to take with me on trips. I love how you have such creative, simple ideas that are still basically homemade. Your dessert sections my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚ however, the only thing I wish you had was maybe a ‘healthy’ section or maybe suggestions for healthy swaps for some of your recipes! You can only eat BBQ chicken cheddar mac before you start getting a little gooey yourself! hahaha keep doin’ what your doin’, youre fantastic!

    Whoooooa, for someone such as myself who LOVES baking dinner in a casserole dish, this post was eye candy…very stimulating. I can tell we’re on the same wavelength. I feel like everything tastes better when made in a casserole dish. Hope you had a great weekend!

    A casserole, from the French word for “saucepan”,[1] is a large, deep dish used both in the oven and as a serving vessel. The word casserole is also used for the food cooked and served in such a vessel, with the cookware itself called a casserole dish or casserole pan. In British English, this type of dish is frequently also called a bake, coinciding with the cooking technique used to cook casseroles..
