And the Results Are In…

… and it was tasty!

Don’t worry, we’re not announcing the winner of the latest giveaway early. You still have until October 19th to enter.

Instead, I wanted to share the end result of a recipe from a cookbook I reviewed earlier in the summer, The Best Casserole Cookbook Ever by Beatrice Ojakangas. I didn’t have my camera handy for many of my previous cooking ventures, but I grabbed a few snaps of the finished Burgundy Beef last night. It was too beautiful not to record for posterity. If you haven’t picked up a copy of Ojakangas’ book, maybe these pictures will change your mind.

Here’s the finished product, just after taking it out of the oven.
Extreme beef close-up. You can see the pearl onions and mushrooms in this shot.
My plate for dinner; I served the beef with the classic combination of garlic mashed potatoes.
Let me tell you, it tasted just as good as it looks. And I have the world’s best lunch for the next couple of days!  I wish I grabbed shots of the Spicy Cheese and Green Chile Dip and the Vegetable Moussaka… both of those recipes came out just as nicely as this one. But they were quickly devoured at a work potluck. Library workers know how to eat.

    I love that you are posting cookbooks on this site. Will definitely look into this one.
    As a college student, casseroles can come in very handy 😛
