Blink of an Eye
Step Into My Garden

Call it a WIN

Last month, when I was visiting Erin in Pittsburgh, we spent a day shopping.  As we often do when shopping together, Erin and I drifted into a Barnes & Noble.  And kind of got lost for awhile.  

In the cookbook section (one of my favorite areas, I must admit), this book caught my eye.

Sheet Pan Suppers.

It was the photo on the front (salmon and asparagus and tomatoes and lemons) that first drew me in.  But once I peeked inside, every single recipe looked great.

So I bought it.

Oh. My.

Great decision.

This cookbook (from author Molly Gilbert of the Dunk & Crumble blog) features appetizers, dinners, and desserts ALL "roasted" on sheet pans.  Molly's concept:  Throw everything together on one sheet pan and cook it together.  So once you're set up, you're done.  You can clean up and set the table and enjoy a glass of wine . . . while the roasting magic happens.  And when you pop the sheet out of the oven . . . dinner is served!

The concept is brilliant.  The recipes are brilliant.  This cookbook is a TOTAL WIN!!!

(And, really.  How can ROASTING everything ever be wrong?  )

I've tried many of the recipes, beginning with the salmon featured on the cover.

The recipes are incredibly tasty -- and simple.  Roasted goodness, easy prep, and super-convenient clean up.
