Last week was the beginning of The Madeleine Questionnaire, in which you are prompted to recollect some of your eating and cooking memories. Many responses have been submitted, and you can still do it by clicking HERE. Starting this week, we’ll have a look at the responses, and share recipes like the ones that inspired those memories. Thanks to everyone that has taken the questionnaire. This week we are sharing a respondent named Britt’s answers.

We hope you’ll take The Madeleine Questionnaire, too. We respect your privacy and your time. You only have to answer the questions you want, you don’t need to submit your name, and you can choose to keep your answers private.
The featured image has nothing to do with the post, but I took it on vacation last week and thought it was a nice sunset.
Do you have a casserole? Wait, what is a casserole? It is both the vessel you cook in, typically large and deep and which after cooked is brought to the table from which to serve, and also the contents of the dish. Confusing maybe, but definitely convenient! Once you put the ingredients in the dish, you cook it in the oven, so not much fussing which also makes a casserole convenient. Casseroles are distinguished from stews by the way they are cooked. Stews typically are cooked on the stove top and casseroles in the oven. Many casserole recipes use convenience ingredients in them, such as canned soups or frozen vegetables.
The convenience of casseroles have made them a perennial favorite in busy households. Looking at the Recifoto database, there are over 400 recipes with casserole in the title.
Here is a sample. We’ll start out with a couple that my mom makes, and we’ll end with the butt of many a situation comedy joke, the tuna casserole!
And today, we’re going to start a new feature, a poll on which recipe you are most likely to make. So be sure to go through the recipes and vote!

I saw the first recipe below for Graham Muffins below in the public recipe feed on the ReciFoto app this morning, which led me to do a search on Graham on Recifoto.com today. When I was in nursery school, they would wake you up from nap time by placing a graham cracker on your tummy. As a result, I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for graham crackers and that graham flavor. Perhaps the graham cracker is my petite madeleine, the cookie that set into motion Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past.
I’m a little confused by some of the recipes below because they are called graham this or that, but the recipe calls for whole wheat flour. Maybe someone reading this post can clarify that for me.
Here are the recipes resulting from my search, including the “whole wheat graham” recipes:
