Broccoli Casserole

Awhile back, the church my husband’s family attends in Oregon put together a recipe book as a fundraiser for the church.  It is a professionally printed and bound book, Generations of Cherished Recipes from St. Thomas Becket Parishioners.  My mother-in-law gave me a copy for Christmas because the family submitted heavily, so it was her way of passing on a lot of their family recipes to me.  So I’m going to periodically publish some of the recipes bestowed upon me and spread the love!
