What people are saying about WHAT’S FOR DINNER

[What’s For Dinner] is one of my favorite cookbooks! The recipes are very easy to follow and perfect for busy nights. I’ve basically cooked through the whole book and my family has enjoyed every recipe! I like how it is broken down into cooking method (sheet pan/instant pot/slow cooker, etc). And I also like how there are suggestions for substitutions if needed. We have so many favorite dishes—Teriyaki Sheet Pan Stir Fry, Maple Glazed Salmon and Crispy Fish and a Chips to name a few. I always find myself gravitating to this book for meal planning when I have a busy week ahead. It has saved me from ordering takeout after a busy afternoon of sports practices and games. And my family always gets excited when they know I’m cooking from the book because they know the meal will be extra tasty and full of flavor. I highly recommend!
