I Dream of Dinner

by Ali Slagle is a cookbook that boasts “low-effort, high-reward” recipes from a New York Times food writer. Each of Slagle’s recipes uses less than 10 ingredients and cooks up in under an hour, but without sacrificing the complex balance of flavor and texture that makes a meal so satisfying. Her recipes are simple and contain tips and shortcuts to save time and maximize flavor, like cooking broccoli and pasta in a single pot to make a flavorful Skillet Broccoli Spaghetti or a one-pot chicken and rice meal that’s inspired by the flavors of paella but cooks up in a fraction of the time. If you’re looking for inspiration for quick weeknight dinners, this is a great place to start. (Cookbook)
