One Pot Week: 5 of our Best-Ever One Pot Wonders

One Pot Week: 5 of our Best-Ever One Pot Wonders

Are you sick of us? Promoting a book is pretty fun but it does leave you feeling like the most self-absorbed person on the planet. “When we created this recipe…” “When I feed my kids this dinner…” “What we think about pickiness is…” It kind of makes you sound like a child, the more I think about it. But one last we, we, we, okay? We are so appreciative of all of you who went out and bought How to Feed a Family in its first few weeks of life and made it a Globe and Mail best seller. You probably heard us screaming on Saturday morning, didn’t you?

As amazing as it is to be traveling across Canada – I  just headed west, Laura is about to go east – to talk about How to Feed a Family, we’re also really missing our regular conversations with you guys. We miss you! And while we’re going to enjoy every minute of the next couple of weeks, we’re really looking forward to getting back to our regular groove with you, dear, dear readers. Until then my sweets, I’m sharing a round-up of my favourite one-pot recipes from our archives. These are the recipes that are saving my life while I’m working over-time, but believe me, there’s lots more new recipes coming your way soon!

One-Pot Chicken Cacciatore couldn’t be easier to throw together and really hits the spot on a cool autumn evening.

This is the only Beef and Mushroom Stew recipe you need – it’s hearty and delicious. Making it fills your home with amazing smells of a perfect dinner.

This Chili Mac may not be the most sophisticated dish you ever prepare, but that’s kind of the point: it’s Chili and Mac and Cheese all rolled into one gooey dinner. Basically, it’s heaven.

Risotto is the ultimate one-pot wonder and this Chicken and Butternut Squash Risotto is one of our favourites. It’s got the sweetness of the squash along with my favourite herb for fall: sage.

    This pot of yummyness looks absolutely delicious! I knew coming back to this website regularly always pays off 🙂

    Congratulations on your book. And making the best seller list on the Globe and Mail!

    As soon as the weather gets cooler around here in the GTA I will be coming back to make the dish in this photo.
