The kitchen is one of my favorite places to be. I love to cook and bake. But, I hate the cleanup. Even though we have a dishwasher, I don’t even like having to finagle all the dishes into it. So, when it comes to cooking, the less dishes the better!
The One Pot cookbook intrigued me. A fellow blogger reviewed it a little bit ago, and I decided it was a cookbook I wanted to check out, afterall, when you can throw all the food into one pot or skillet to cook, that cleanup part becomes pretty easy!

**I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review**
For my level of excitement for this book, I was a bit disappointed. I enjoy one pot meals because of their easiness. Well, there were a number of ingredients in this book that I’m not familiar with. The other part that disappointed me, was there aren’t too many recipes I’m all that interested in, but I recognize that is a preference thing. I just suggest checking it out in a store or the sample pages on Amazon before a purchase.
I can find some good in the book though. The recipes are separated by the “one pot” you would use to cook them in. All the slow cooker recipes are together and all the stockpot recipes are together. It even has a section for the pressure cooker, which I don’t think you find in cookbooks very often. The beginning of each section also talks about the benefits of that form of cooking and offers tips for it.
There are about a dozen recipes I want to try for the book, but that doesn’t seem like much compared to the 120+ recipes the book offers. I think it just wasn’t the book for me.
I would love to hear from you! Do you have any favorite recipes that you cook in one dish?
