For enthusiasts of one pot cooking (and who isn’t during the busy holiday season), Cook’s Country “One-Pan Wonders: Fuss Free Meals for Your Sheet Pan, Dutch Oven, Skillet, Roasting Pan, Casserole and Slow Cooker,” by the editors at America’s Test Kitchen, is a 138 recipe-filled page turner. With four–color photographs throughout, you’ll not only know how to make a dish, but what it should look like after it is cooked
Typical of America’s Test Kitchen format, the recipes are preceded with “Why this recipe works” notes, the compilation of comprehensive recipe testing and experimentation to offer no-fuss simplified recipes for meals that are full of vibrant, fresh flavor made from a variety of readily-available ingredients.
As a preview to the book’s diverse, easy to pull together meals, you’ll find recipes here for Breakfast Pizza and Sausage Lasagna. Satisfying and good for serving to family or overnight guests, the pizza (made with store-bought pizza dough), is a good vehicle for an egg and bacon breakfast or brunch , while the lasagna (making use of no-boil lasagna noodles), may just prove to be the most laid-back lasagna you’ve ever assembled. The lasagna calls for whole-milk ricotta cheese and because I really do love making homemade ricotta cheese, you’ll find my recipe for the cheese here, as well. It, too, is made with just one pot.
If one of your resolutions for the New Year includes finding ways to streamline your time in the kitchen, consider giving this brand new title a serious look. For further details, including how to purchase, visit https://americastestkitchen.buysub.com/homepage/pre-order-today-one-pan-wonders.html.
