From Melissa Clark, the New York Times bestselling author and one of the most beloved food and recipe writers of our generation, comes a comprehensive and practical cookbook. With more than 250 all new recipes and abundant four-color photography, these inherently simple recipes make for the kind of easy cooking that can turn anyone into a better and more confident cook. Dinner is all about options- inventive, unfussy food with unexpected flavor (and plenty of make ahead ideas, too)- a sheetpan chicken laced with spicy harissa; burgers amped with chorizo; curried lentils with poached eggs, to name a few. Here, too, are easy flourishes that make dinner exceptional- stirring charred lemon into pasta, tossing a Caesar-like dressing on a grain bowl, adding fresh ricotta and demerara sugar to stovetop mac and cheese; lavishing a dollop of chili paste just about anywhere. Clark's mission is to help anyone-whether a novice with just a single pan or the experienced (and, perhaps jaded) home cook, figure out what to make any night of the week, without settling on fallbacks. Each recipe in this book is meant to be dinner-one fantastic dish that is so satisfying and flavor-forward it can stand alone or sit with just a little something else, such as green beans with caper vinaigrette, a citrus salad with olives, coconut rice, or skillet brown butter cornbread. Or maybe all you need is some baguette and the simplest green salad. Dinner has the range and authority-and the author's trademark warmth-of an instant classic.

After a couple hundred purchased cookbooks, I decided that new books were coming from the library. This is the one of the very few that I borrowed and then bought a copy of. I still keep cooking from the book and it's a staple when it's time to menu plan. There's nothing super innovative about the recipes, but that's why it's so brilliant - good food, from ingredients you can find, and with cooking techniques that have you eating before midnight.

Recipes looked great and some innovation. Nothing really compelled me to buy the book but I did pick up some great ideas.

This cookbook is just about perfect. The recipes are often variations on a theme. Familiar enough in cooking method so that they can easily fit into your dinner rotation schedule but also throwing in enough inventive ingredient pairings to liven up your weeknights. Ingredients are varied an appealing but nothing so exotic that you will be staring at the book thinking "Where does a person even buy that?" I haven't purchased a cookbook in years but I think I'll have to buy this one as I imagine the library's copy will be always checked out!
