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.
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.
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.
Every single thing I've tried . . . from vegetarian fare (loaded sweet potatoes here) . . .
and roasted beet salads . . .
and chicken curry . . .
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.)
