One Pot

Sometimes I just don’t want to use every pot and pan in the kitchen. These recipes all use only one pot to cook the entire meal in. These are great for busy weeknight dinners or when you’re too tired to clean up after the work week.

My Favorite Recipes are Spicy Tomato Braised Cabbage, Stove Top Italian Meatballs and One Pot Garlic and Parmesan Shrimp. 

Three Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
