One Pot One Pan: Super Simple, Easy and Delicious Recipes for Beginners, Balabustas and Everyone in Between
by Devorah Kahan & Rachel Moskowitz
Since I became disabled due to a tumor about 10 years ago I cannot stand to do a lot of cooking. So for me, cooking has become somewhat of a chore. Which is really too bad because prior to the tumor (which was a benign nerve tumor) I used to love to cook.But I still love to make homemade food. The following cookbook is perfect for this reason because it allows one to make homemade, delicious food in no time at all without a huge mess and a lot of fuss. I am not Jewish but I like to eat good food all the same and the recipes apply to anyone.
The Kosher food world has expanded exponentially, with new trends to try out almost every week. Sometimes you might just want to try out a favorite you grew up with and you don't want to spend a lot of time on it. That is where One Pot One Pan comes in. It is filled with so many tried and true recipes that are for anyone, not just those eating Kosher. This is a cookbook for busy moms needing to get supper on the table in 10 minutes or less, bachurim sem girls cooking for themselves a dirah (without much cooking ware available), preteens who want to try their hand in the kitchen (whether or not they know their way around it or not) or anyone in between (such as myself). There are so many different kinds of recipes in this book. You will find your favorite by far. There are classics like chicken soup, Israeli salad, lemon garlic chicken, meat lasagna, potato latkes, baked ziti and even schnitzel. Plus so many more!
Don't forget about dessert. You can cook recipes such as cookies in a mug, fruit and yogurt parfait and 'Mekupelet' hot cocoa. Which means your sweet tooth can be satisfied quite easily in just a few minutes and with minimal supplies, so you can have your cake and eat it too!
I am not really a vegetarian but I do not eat beef or pork. I do, however, eat chicken and seafood. Chicken recipes are in the book (not seafood, as it is not Kosher of course). There are plenty of recipes in the book for me to get my groove on and find things to make that are easy and take very little to no preparation. I'm very partial to the Cookie In A Mug when I want to get my sweet tooth satisfied. It literally takes 5 minutes to make start to finish. As for the other recipes in the book, it's been summer so I have been eating the salads and lighter fare. There's a really nice Rainbow Salad recipe as well as a good Tuna salad recipe.
This book has become a nice little staple in my kitchen over the summer. It has been very hot here and I like the lighter fare. I look forward to making some of the soups and entrées that are featured in the One Pot One Pan. This would make a nice addition to your cookbook collection too.
