This cookbook elevates the simple 8x8-inch square baking dish into a dinnertime secret weapon for busy families. Beyond the usual brownies and casseroles, the book shows 64 modern "square meals": easy weeknight one-dish meals such as Honey-Glazed Chicken with Root Vegetables, Sunday dinner recipes like Spinach-Pesto Lasagna, tasty recipes for sides such as Chard Apple Stuffing that would make a nice addition to the Thanksgiving table, brunch fare including Orange Custard French Toast, and Croissant Bread Pudding with Espresso Butterscotch Sauce for dessert.


"Kathy Strahs nails it with her weeknight-friendly 'square meals'. The 8x8 dish is not only the perfect size for my busy family, but it's also just right for freeze-ahead meals and potlucks with friends. We could eat these dishes every night of the week!"  —Catherine McCord, author, Weelicious

"Readers will find a brownie recipe here, but they'll likely be surprised at Strahs's other imaginative, practical uses for the dish."  —Publishers Weekly

"The 8×8 Cookbook: A whole book of mouthwatering, one-pan family meals. Yes, please!"  —Cool Mom Eats
