Lots of people are so busy these days, that they think they don’t have time to cook at home.  One-Pot Cooking for Two: Effortless Meals for Your Sheet Pan, Skillet, Slow Cooker, and More is a great tool to help and change that.

The book is really what it says it is.

It does offer effortless and super quick recipes that take no more than 30 minutes to prepare and cook (especially with a pressure cooker) and require 5 ingredients or less.

The chapters deal with each meal of the day, or with the main ingredient: veggie, poultry, or meat.

It also gives lots of tips for beginners, like for instance what tool to use.

Each recipe is accompanied with extra ideas to make variations of the same recipe. And with nutrition information (calories, total fat, etc).

There’s a large variety of recipes.
To help you decide what you might want to cook today, go to the end of the book:
one index sorts the recipes by the cooking vessel needed (7 options: baking dish, Dutch oven, Pressure cooker, pot, sheet pan, skillet, slow cooker),
or look through the extensive index by ingredient.

VERDICT: Very helpful and yummy recipe book for beginners who think they don’t have time to cook.

  1. I loooove one-pot cooking. Everything in one pot makes life easier! I have never gotten into slow cookers though, and never owned a pressure cooker. I adore my dutch oven though.
    This sounds like a great approach to the topic.


    • Oh wow, I don’t think I could survive without a slow cooker lol. Probably the best wedding gift ever. Especially when I used to work outside the house. I would set it up before going for work, and everything would be ready when I came back – there’s a timer, and when the 8 hours slow are done, for instance, it keeps everything warm, without burning your pot!!
      I don’t have much room in my kitchen, but I’m considering a pressure cooker.
      My husband does amazing no-knead bread in the Dutch oven

      • I had a nice slow cooker, with a clay pot, that I had to leave behind when I moved to Switzerland. I didn’t use it very often though, mostly just for making stock. With my current work schedule it would be good to have one though! I will see what I can find.


  2. Cookbooks for beginners were important to me when I switched from being vegetarian to being an omnivore. This sounds like a good one.
