About the Author
Ali Slagle is a recipe developer, stylist, and--most important of all--home cook. She's a frequent contributor to the New York Times and Washington Post, where she's published hundreds of weeknight-ready recipes. Previously, she cut her teeth on the editorial and creative teams at Food52 and Ten Speed Press. You'll find her in Brooklyn, without a dishwasher, food processor, or stand mixer.
"Finally, a recipe creator who understands what a realistic end-of-week pantry looks like!"--Eater

"Her recipes carry the comforting pragmatism of an impatient home cook: she maps out the smoothest way to get from ingredients to dinner, and maximizes flavor wherever possible."--Marian Bull, food writer

"The recipes are unique, easy to follow, and even easier to commit to memory. It's exciting to think of a whole cookbook worth of them."--Food52

"Slagle is generous with permission to break the rules in service of minimizing effort or maximizing pleasure, ideally both."--The New Yorker

"As you can imagine there is a lot of talk of cookbooks in our proverbial halls (a.k.a. Zoom calls), and occasionally it seems everyone is in love with the same one. This month the brilliantly titled I Dream of Dinner (so You Don't Have To) by Ali Slagle is a house favorite."--Dawn Davis, editor in chief of Bon Appétit

"I Dream of Dinner is brilliantly designed, clearly written, and filled with a ton of quick, simple recipes to help get a happy dinner on the table at the end of a long day."--Samin Nosrat, author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

"[Ali Slagle], is a super smart cook and recipe writer who's also damn funny. Her humor and ideas will get you through making dinner in about 45 minutes."--Andrea Nguyen, author of Vietnamese Food Any Day and The Pho Cookbook

"Ali has pulled off the near-impossible with a collection of delicious, doable, recipes that don't just tell you how to make a specific dish, but how to expand your way of thinking so you can cook with a flexible pantry. Let's face it, it's tough to organize your life around recipes with specific ingredients. Instead, I Dream of Dinner makes room for your life."--Sohla El-Waylly, chef and all-around awesome person

"Many books purport to offer easy weeknight meals but disguise cooking time with hidden prep and other complications--not Slagle's. She hits it out of the park with her first cookbook, collecting recipes that take 45 minutes or less and use 10 or fewer ingredients."--Library Journal

"This makes the task of cooking feel like a celebration."--Publishers Weekly
