Casserole King

“Casserole King” is an original, handcut paper collage on 5×7 heavy watercolor paper.

Old cookbooks hold a wealth of memories – recipes my mother and grandmother made (with varying degrees of success!) and the wonderful photos and illustrations, separated by tabs that promise “Quick and Easy” or “Dining for Special Occasions.”

“Casserole King” brings us the Chapter 8 page of the old Better Homes and Gardens ring binder cookbook. Various other recipes and some fun little houses from a children’s book serve up the background. The king, himself, seems to be calling the subjects to dine. I just have to wonder what is on his menu today.
