Make Life Special is all about cooking great food for your family and friends while using recipes that are quick, delicious and easy.  Sheet pan dinners are just the ticket!  This Roasted Salmon recipe is fuss free cooking at it’s best.   I don’t know what took me so long to discover this simple method of cooking but now I’m grabbing my sheet pan almost every day to roast something!  I like to roast a sheet pan full of fresh vegetables every night.  Roasting is a healthy way to cook and the vegetables develop a delicious caramelization that would satisfy even the most picky palate.   Sheet pan cooking allows you to cook your main dish and your side dish both at the same time and in the same pan.  Clean up is a breeze too because you line the sheet pan with aluminum foil before assembling the recipe.  Easy…breezy!
