So, I've wanted a Le Creuset-type casserole for a long time ... like 20 years. I've decided I'll finally get one for my birthday, But, DECISIONS. I want blue. My imaginary wonderful casserole I use all the time and cherish has always been blue or teal (why I mention this a bit later). I've come down to two, maybe three choices, which are: cheaper but highly rated, very highly rated but quite a bit more expensive, and very highly rated but much more expensive. (the last is a variation on the second) [more inside]
I'm doing a meal swap with a bunch of moms (including one professional chef!) using big 11 cup Pyrex storage. This is my first time in the swap and I really need a good vegetarian brunch (breakfast casserole) recipe that will hold its own, and can be frozen without the taste or texture taking a hit. Help!

Looking for soup, stew, or casserole recipes where I can spend ten minutes dumping stuff in the crockpot in the morning and have a full meal ready when I get home. Something like this is ideal; the only prep is chopping an onion before setting it and forgetting it until dinnertime. No dietary preferences or restrictions, but some vegetables would probably be good. I'm seeing a lot of recipes online, but am having a hard time weeding out which ones are worthwhile, and would appreciate any favorites you care to share.
We have my 90 year old father in law over for dinner once a week. He suffers from Parkinson's, which has progressed to the point where he is having trouble swallowing; but we soldier on. We've had good luck with risotto, tuna noodle casserole and chicken & dumplings - but those seem like fall-winter type foods. Do you have any good summer soft textured/casserole-y recipes?

I made baked orzo with veggies and cheese yesterday morning, thinking I had lunches covered for the next couple of days. I covered it in foil, and put it in the fridge, once the glass casserole dish had cooled a bit. It had been in there for about 2-3 hours when the power went out. The power was out for about 10-11 hours, and no one was home to open the fridge for most of that time. Please tell me it's okay to eat?

I'm participating in a Thanksgiving potluck this weekend. I've been assigned a corn based dish - possibly a casserole of some sort. I'm not a good cook, but can manage simple things. Does anyone have any favorite corn based recipes that are more involved than heating up frozen or canned veggies? [more inside]

I made this casserole last night for dinner, and it was quite tasty. I'd like to add it into my regular rotation of suppers, but the gruyère cheese is kind of expensive at my local market. Can you suggest a more pedestrian cheese I can use instead? I guess it would have to be something that was similar in hardness/melting point. (Similarity in taste would be nice, but I realize with supermarket cheeses I can't have everything). [more inside]

I have a few pounds of turducken left over. What can I do with it that isn't sandwiches? Soup? Casserole? Recipes and other ideas welcome. I am unemployed so willing to spend a lot of time if needed on something. I'm worried that having three different types of poultry might make things weird cooking wise.
