200 Best Sheet Pan Meals

Camilla Saulsbury. Robert Rose (Firefly, dist.) $24.95 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-0-7788-0538-0
Saulsbury, who has published more than 20 cookbooks (The Complete Coconut Cookbook, etc.), makes a strong case for the ease and practicality of cooking whole meals on one sheet pan. This cookbook is full of practical tips, easy substitutions, and great ideas for preparing family meals that are time-efficient, nutritious, and minimally messy. The recipes are not illustrated with photos on the same page, but sections of full-page glossy color photos of meals (roasted salmon with root vegetables; Persian rice-stuffed butternut squash) and desserts (carrot cake with cream cheese frosting; roasted plums with honey, walnuts, and Greek yogurt) provide plenty of inspiration. Other impressive selections include warm chicken salad with beets, rustic croutons, and goat cheese, and halibut with herbed bread crumbs and broccoli. Saulsbury prefaces her recipes with instructions on choosing the best sheet pans, cautioning readers that the term itself is misunderstood and that many sheet pans lack quality and durability. She also includes a list of pantry staples for cooks who want to make sheet-pan meals a regular part of their routines. Saulsbury has gathered an impressive selection of easy-to-prepare meals for busy households. (Mar.)
