Cookbook Review: One Pot

I recently received the One Pot cookbook From the Kitchens of Martha Stewart Living. I was especially looking forward to this cookbook, because one pot means less dishes right? That's always a plus! This book had plenty of mouth-watering photos to enjoy and that is something I consider very important when I choose a cookbook. I love seeing what the finished product should look like.

You might think by the title, One Pot, it would always mean a stockpot or dutch oven type of pan. However, this book has recipe for all kinds of pots and even roasting pans! The chapters are:
  • Dutch Oven
  • Skillet & Saute Pan
  • Slow Cooker
  • Roasting Pan & Baking Dish
  • Pressure Cooker
  • Stockpot & Saucepan
  • Desserts

The recipes look delicious! Some that stood out to me were Carnitas Tacos, Arroz con Pollo, Sausage, Chicken, and White-Bean Gratin, Turkey Skillet Pie, Skillet Macaroni and Cheese (with multiple variations!), and more! There are definitely several tasty things to make in this book. The only issue I had with the book is that I found some of the ingredients to be things I wouldn't likely get my family to eat. Things such as fennel, clams and items like that. And since I don't have a pressure cooker, that leaves out that chapter for me. However, I am sure the recipes could be adapted to be made without one. I wish they would have included instructions for those without pressure cookers.

In the end, I think this is definitely a cookbook worth checking out. I love all of the pictures and the fact that each chapter includes some basics and tips about the cookware that you're using. That is always handy. If you'd like to find out more about this cookbook click here.
