A friend of mine, Kourtney, shared on her Facebook page some simple and delicious looking “Sheet Pan Suppers” awhile back and I told myself I was going to share them with everyone as soon as I got the chance to try a few of them myself! Let me tell you, these are fabulous! You can literally take any raw protein you want, Kourtney goes back and forth usually between pork and chicken, and any raw vegetable and make a complete one baking sheet meal that is not only healthy and nutritious but delicious as well! The possibilities with this meal are endless! Shake on any seasoning or flavor combination you want!
Kourtney’s Sheet Pan Suppers
Take a 9×13-inch baking sheet and wrap up well with aluminum foil. Spray gently with a non-stick cooking spray. Place your prepared raw protein into the middle and fill both sides with the prepared raw vegetables of your choice. Melt butter and garlic and pour over evenly. Simply top with salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning blend. Cover with aluminum foil and place in preheated 425 degree oven for one hour.

I love salmon – not to mention the many health benefits that go along with it – and my recipe for “Salmon Patties” is a multi-generational recipe that is delicious – quick – flavorful and versatile. Squeeze lemon on the patties at the end for a burst of fresh lemon flavor that pairs well with the salmon or sprinkle on chopped chive at the end and serve alongside macaroni and tomatoes. A recipe sure to please!
Also in this column is my “Ask and Answer” feature explaining the difference between dry yeast and instant yeast. Several people have written to me wondering the difference – and there is quite a difference! They are in the same “family” but work in totally unique ways.
