Autumn Sausage Casserole

Posted on

I found a great blog that had a year of slow cooking recipes. How cool is that? A whole year! It is Stephanie O’Dea’s blog and it is really good! The recipe that got me hooked was the Autumn Sausage Casserole. It just looked so good! I did make some adjustments to suit my tastes. But that is the fun of a recipe!

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
