Time for another book review courtesy of Blogging For Books. Since most of my post are sharing delicious recipe ideas, it made sense that I review a cookbook. One Pot: 120+ Easy Meals from Your Skillet, Slow Cooker, Stockpot, and More, is a great addition to your cookbook collection.
As I mentioned in one of my previous post, one of the first things that I look at is whether the cookbook includes lots of colorful pictures and the next is the number of ingredients in each recipe. I have to admit I’m less likely to try a recipe if it appears that it would be difficult to find an ingredient.
So far I have tried two recipes from One Pot bookbook. I’ve tried the Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie and the Stir-Fried Chicken with Bok Choy. They both have few ingredients and they are simple and easy to make but most importantly they taste amazing.
The Stir-Fried Chicken with Bok Choy is something that I could added to my meal plan every week. Since the first two recipes that I tried were a hit, I’m excited to try more recipes. This collection of recipes is from the editors of Martha Stewart Living. It features different one pot recipes from an array of kitchen gadgets.
Usually when we think of one pot, a crockpot comes to mind. This cookbook is divided into sections depending on the kitchen tool you need to use such as; skillet and saute pan, slow cooker, roasting pan, and pressure cooker, just to name a few. No worries, as you can see from the chocolate chip cookie , desserts were not left out.
The only thing that I wish was included would have been the nutritional labels for each recipe. I’m sure I can plug it into a tool online but it would have be nice if it was available. Overall I think this would be a great addtion to add to your cookbook collection. Next on the list to make is the Texas Red Chili. Nothing more warming than a hearty bowl of chili on a cold winters night!
