Monday, Fun-Day Cookbook Giveaway!
The first day of the week may not be something to get excited about in the work world, but here at Cooks&Books&Recipes it is. Because Monday is my day to give away another cookbook! Today’s cookbook is The Big Book of One-Pot Dinners, from Betty Crocker.
Here’s why you want Betty Crocker’s Big Book of One-Pot Dinners:
With this book, home cooks have all they need to create mouth-watering one-pot dinners with ease. Filled with more than 200 tasty recipes and 100 full-color photos, it offers up meals like Slow Cooker Fire-Roasted Tomato Pot Roast, Hearty Chicken Pot Pie, and Curried Lentil and Vegetable Stew that are sure to become family favorites. Also included is an informative introduction to choosing and working with various types of cookware, and advice on techniques to make dinner a cinch. Plus, handy icons call out meatless options, crowd-pleasing solutions, and dishes that are lower in calorie count, making one-dish dinners a great choice for everyone. With a variety of flavors and pots, from skillets and saucepans to baking dishes and Dutch ovens, there is a complete dinner idea for every night of the week.
My favorite things about One-Pot Dinners? The idea of cleaning only one pot! :) Also, the different types of one-pot meals, as noted in the table of contents: casseroles; pot pies; oven-roasted dinners; stovetop meals; slow-cooker choices; and soups, stews, and chilis. And I especially like the “Make It Ahead,” “Quick Variation,” “Time Saver,” and “Healthy Twist” tips given for many recipes. Because who doesn’t like easy recipes that can be adapted to your own tastes??
