Dinner, Changing the Game: A Review

Upon the arrival in my mailbox of the much-anticipated newest cookbook by the venerable Melissa Clark, coyly entitled Dinner: Changing the Game, I must say I was doing the happy dance. And I haven't stopped since.

You see, this book is all about recipes for dinner (you probably already guessed that!)...but in a most refreshing and unique way. As the inside book cover says, "Dinner showcases the inventive yet unfussy approach to cooking that will make anyone a better and more confident cook."

To be more specific, Dinner features recipes that are "meant to be dinner--one fantastic dish that is so satisfying and flavor forward it can stand alone--maybe with a little salad or some bread on the side. This is what Melissa Clark means by changing the game."

Whoa! What an awesome concept! Forget making a main entree with two sides. These dishes complete the meal all on their own. And boy do they look fabulous.

Frankly, I can't wait to try the Chicken & Grapes with Sherry Vinegar; Georgian Lamb Kebabs with Dill Sauce; Stovetop Fusilli with Spinach, Peas, and Gruyere; and Skillet Brown-butter Cornbread. With more than 200 recipes, this is a comprehensive resource that will serve me well for years to come.

But don't take my word for it. See for yourself. You won't be disappointed...I guarantee it!
