I just bought this book. I loved it so much I bought another copy for my mom. She called me the day she got it and couldn't wait to try it. When my five year old daughter sees me pulling out the baking sheet with The little parchment paper packages she claps her hands and says, "oh yummy!"

The recipes whip up pretty quickly, there is a HUGE variety of recipes, they taste amazing, and you can't beat the clean up! The chicken turns out so tender its amazing. A friend and I recently were complaining about how crockpot cooking seems like a great idea but it never comes out right. This is exactly the answer I have been looking for!

I work a full time job, and freelance on the side. The last thing I have the time or energy for is cooking, even though I love to eat more than anything. A foodie on a tight schedule is not a happy camper, especially when your micro-sized apartment doesn't come with a dishwasher. Generally, I'm left with sautéed fish and brown rice in a rice cooker, or else cans of soup or PBJs. No bueno.

This book, though, has been infinitely helpful in cleaning up my diet. Healthy recipe that require pretty much no dishes to prepare, which means I can EAT without being saddled with a ton of pots and pans to clean. Real food! No mess! Clean ingredients! Really, what else can the busy adult ask for in this life? Besides a personal chef, that is?

I never even tried using parchment paper until this year and that was for baking. The idea of using it instead of pots and pans to make all sorts of dishes is very interesting. The beginning of the book explains in detail, with images, how to fold parchment paper so that it can be used to make the recipes in the book. After that are the chapters containing the recipes. There is a table of contents in the beginning that lists all of the recipes but I also think it'd be helpful to color code each chapter on the edge of the page, to make getting to what you want a little quicker. Recipes in this cookbook are all easy to understand. Each recipe clearly lists the necessary ingredients (all of which appeared to be ordinary items), as well as how many the dish serves and the nutritional content. The recipes would be more helpful to me if they included prep and cooking time. Some of the recipes also include ideas for variations. There are no photos in this cookbook save a few in the middle of the book, I'd love it if the recipes included photos. This cookbook would be ideal for people that want to simplify their cooking by having less pots and pans to clean, as well as for those that cook for one or two.

I have had this book for a month now and have not even scratched the surface of all the great recipes. I have two main criteria for a cookbook--besides having tasty dishes of course. I want the instructions to be idiot-proof and I want the index to be detailed so that when I come up with a couple of chicken breasts and some cheese in the fridge, I can find something to do with it. This cookbook passes my two criteria with flying colors. The writing is clear and concise. The index is terrific. Besides, the recipes are varied enough to please everyone. And as a bonus, it introduces a new concept that I have never fully explored.
Sure, we line the cookie sheets with parchment paper and occasionally get fancy with a "Papillotte" something or other--but this lovely book has ideas from breakfast through sumptious desserts that can be cooked in parchment. Yay!And THANKS for writing this super book.

The Parchment Paper Cookbook is a collection of 180 healthy, fast, and delicious dishes using parchment paper. Before reading this cookbook, about all I had used parchment paper for was to bake cookies on so they didn't stick to the pan. I had no idea how versatile cooking with parchment paper really was. This cookbook has recipes for Breakfast Dishes, Chicken and Turkey Dishes, Pork and Lamb Dishes, Beef and Veal Dishes, Seafood Dishes, Vegetable Dishes; Bread, Rice and Potato Dishes, and Desserts. There is a selection of color photographs in the section of the book that shows different dishes that have been prepared.

Each recipe has an ingredients list, a detailed instruction list and a short paragraph about the recipe itself. Some recipes also include a tip on where to find a certain ingredient, what a word means or different ways that uncommon ingredients can be used. Recipes include the nutrition information as well which is vital for people who are watching what they eat. There's also a very handy chapter in the front of the book that explains all about cooking with parchment paper and its benefits. It's a much healthier way to cook because it eliminates the need to grease pans or use added fat.. The authors encourage you to continue on with the healthy cooking theme by choosing organic, whole grain products and avoiding overly processed foods.

Don't be at all intimidated by using parchment paper. There is a step by step description with drawings included in the front of the book that shows you how to make a parchment packet and ideas for serving your creation once it's done cooking. I had no idea that this was so easy or I would have tried it ages ago! I also love that parchment paper is a much more eco-friendly option that using aluminum foil. You can recycle or compost the parchment paper when you're done with it and you can't do that with aluminum foil.

I made the Chocolate Chip Strawberry Pizza and it was amazing!
