One Pot

Using just one pan, you can stew, steam, sauté, simmer, braise, or roast your way to a fuss-free meal—and minimal cleanup to boot.   At the end of a busy day, you want to serve a delicious home-cooked dinner, a complete, all-in-one meal that can be prepared with little effort and few pans to wash. The editors of Martha Stewart Livingpresent a brand-new collection of 120 recipes—organized by vessel—to help you do just that, all while adding savory new dishes to your weekly rotation.   One Pot is an exciting new way to approach everyday cooking: Imagine perfect pasta dishes for which everything goes in the pot at once (yes, that’s pasta, tomato, garlic, basil, and water all cooked together), dinner-party ready roasts with tender vegetables, and down-home casseroles, along with wholesome fish, chicken, and vegetarian dishes. You’ll get incredible flavor payoff from dishes such as comforting Chicken and Dumplings, easy Baked Risotto with Carrots and Squash, healthy Broiled Striped Bass with Tomatoes, hearty Pork Chops with Bacon and Cabbage, and the delectable Skillet Chocolate-Chip Cookie—each of which takes less than an hour from start to finish. Here, too, are a dozen outstanding recipes for surprising and simple desserts that can be ready when you are.   With chapters devoted to your essential cooking vessels—stockpot, skillet, slow cooker, and more—this book is sure to streamline your meals and to satisfy the people you share them with.

I was surprised at the variety this cookbook has! I guess I thoight that the recipes would be mostly those devpted to using a crockpot. I'm happy to be wrong! I like that this cook book gives one so many great ideas on what to make in an iron skillet, pressure cooker, slow cooker and more!
Another thing I really appreciate about this cookbook is that a lot of the recipes are fun ways to use seasonal produce. Perfect for those of us who garden or enjoy going to farmers markets!
I think this book is wonderful, and I look forward to usi.g it more!
I received a copy of this book from Blohging for books in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I really like the sound of this book.
    Thanks for the review!

    1. This book is nice! I was thinking that it might be filled with recipes that might not be practical, but I was pleasantly surprised.:) Some of the ingredients are ones that everyone might not keep on hand, but they aren't too crazy, like some recipe books can get.;)
