One Pot



A review by Spencer


Simplify dinnertime (and cleanup) with one-pot recipes everyone will love.

In my opinion, the worst thing about cooking is the cleanup. Well, voilĂ ! This book offers a solution. Easy prep, easy recipe, and easy peasy cleanup.

One Pot has several sections devoted to different types of pots—Dutch Oven, Slow Cooker, Skillet & SautĂ© Pan, Roasting Pan & Baking Dish, Pressure Cooker, and Stockpot. It also has a segment dedicated to Desserts.

Now, I don’t eat beef, so sometimes it can be difficult to find a recipe book that has enough non-beef recipes to make me happy. I’m pleased with One Pot’s variety. The Braised Chicken with Potatoes and Lemon is delicious and easy, and the Classic Chicken Soup is the perfect pick-me-up for the winter blahs.

Two recipes on my soon-to-make list are the Skillet Macaroni and Cheese (with lots of cheese—yum) and Stuffed Tomatoes (without the tuna—yuck.) I promise you, the photo illustrating the stuffed tomatoes is enough to make your taste buds explode.

I haven’t prepared any of the desserts—yet, but I’ve probably gained a few pounds by thumbing through that section. Chocolate Mousse in a blender? Raspberry Sorbet? No-Churn Coffee Chocolate-Chip Ice Cream?

Oh. Em. Gee.
I want.

Needless to say, but I’ll say it anyway, this book is a keeper. The recipes are practical, the ingredients are typical pantry dwellers, and the photos are incredibly inspiring. I even learned that there are slow cookers that brown meats! Cool. I’ve already added one of those babies to my Christmas list.
