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.

have been fabulous.

Like . . . really fabulous.

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

This cookbook is a huge WIN.

(I just wanted you to know.)

This may be just what I need! John and I go for a long walk almost every day after he gets home from work; this makes dinner prep. a challenge since I can't make every meal from the crockpot and the kitchen staff has never once had dinner waiting for us when we get home from our walk. Thanks for letting us know!

That looks great and I love meals where everything goes in the oven at the same time and then I can just relax until it's ready. I can't remember the last time I bought a cookbook, though, since there are so many recipes on blogs and Pinterest. I put this book on hold at the library but it sounds like one I may have to buy.

Okay, you just busted the resolve tomeschew the purchase of any more cookbooks. This one looks like a total winner. Thanks for sharing!

I'm going to check out the book. I roast salmon and asparagus all the time, but I keep them separate, sometimes on different pans. Everything together would be tasty and very easy! Thank you for sharing your great find!

hummm...apologies if my comment is double posted but I don't see it - just wanted to say thank you for the recommendation - this looks like the perfect companion to my new "meal in one bowl" cookbook!

I decided to leave a THANK YOU comment BEFORE heading over to Amazon to place my order. Oh my, that is all completely up my alley!!
