We tried a few of the casserole recipes but found that they just didn’t generate a lot of enthusiasm. We also wound up with too many leftovers for our 2-person household.

I very nearly skipped this entire section having made plenty of other desserts from other cookbooks. (And with due concern over our waistlines!) But I decided to give it a go… and am so glad that I did. The oatmeal raisin cookies, granola bars, brownies, muffins, and apple crisp were well worth the effort. And as one who has given up dairy, I was especially pleased with the Strawberry Shortcakes!
