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. 

Cast Iron Apple Crisp

This easy apple crisp is made in the cast iron skillet with oatmeal as the topper. This is a perfect fall dessert to use up extra apples. Cast Iron Apple Crisp is a simple yet delicious old fashioned dessert. Perfect topped with ice cream or whipped cream for a crowd.

Cajun Pork Tenderloin

Pan seared and oven roasted cajun pork tenderloin in a cast iron skillet is an easy weeknight dinner. This easy pork tenderloin recipe results in juicy and flavorful pork.

Stove Top Italian Meatballs

These delicious and juicy homemade Stove Top Italian style Meatballs take about 30 minutes to prep and cook. The meatballs are browned in a dutch oven and finished simmering in sauce on the stove top. These meatballs are an easy weeknight dinner and perfect for eating over pasta or in meatball subs.

One Pot Garlic and Parmesan Shrimp

Once the shrimp are defrosted, this recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes. One pot garlic and parmesan shrimp is an easy and quick weeknight main course that can be served over pasta, with rice pilaf, a simple salad or roasted vegetables.

Cast Iron Three Berry Crisp

Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are the epitome of summer berries. They are the most flavorful (and nutritious!) during the summer when you can get them from local farmers markets. This three berry filling is baked in a cast iron skillet and topped with an oatmeal crisp. It pairs well with some vanilla ice cream for a great summer dessert.

Brown Butter Lobster Rolls

Lobster rolls are a staple in New England during the summer. Brown Butter Lobster Rolls are my take on the traditional lobster roll using brown butter, top split buns and just a hint of mayo. These are best served warm with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.

Better than Takeout Fried Rice

Better than takeout fried rice is the ultimate “use what’s in the fridge” dinner or side dish. Add in any extra chicken, pork or beef plus the odds and ends of vegetables like broccoli or carrots to bulk up the rice into a dinner. This comfort food dish is pretty easy to make with a few standard Asian staples from your pantry. You won’t want the bland and flavorless takeout fried rice after trying this recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

A simple Mexican-inspired chicken soup made easier by using a slow cooker. This uncomplicated soup has 5 minutes of prep and is ideal for dinner after a busy day of school and work. Leave the tortilla chips and rice out, add extra black beans for a low carb, extra protein option for lunch the next day!

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is a comfort meal easiest made in a slow cooker. It is a recipe that warms your bones on fall or winter day but also hearty enough to keep you full. Make a big batch to stay warm and keep the rest in the freezer for a quick lunch option.
