I have had the hardest time getting enthusiastic about meal planning and cooking. Normally I love to cook, but lately I’ve been annoyed that people in my family keep expecting food! For meals! The nerve!
I recently checked out this cookbook from the library and after making a few dishes from it that were huge hits, decided to buy it. It’s now my go to cookbook so I thought I’d share it!
It’s the Skinny Taste One and Done Cookbook and it’s full of one pot recipes. What makes it unique is that it’s grouped by the type of pot you use. There’s a section for Instant Pots, Slow Cookers, Air Fryers, Sheet Pans, Skillets, and Dutch Ovens. There are also directions given for each recipe on how to modify the recipe if you don’t have that specific piece of equipment. (For example I don’t have an air fryer but there are directions on how to cook the same recipe in your oven.)
All the recipes I’ve made have been fairly simple, not too many ingredients that I don’t already keep on hand, and most importantly, have been hits with everyone in the family. Skinny Taste also gives all the caloric, ingredient info (hence the name) and I know that’s important to people too. I also like that the portions aren’t massive. Each recipe seems to comfortably feed my family of four (Sam’s not quite at table food yet!) with maybe one portion left over, if that.
Anyway, I plan on using this cookbook a lot this summer to keep life simple and thought I’d share it with you! Let me know if you have any favorite cookbooks for this time of year. I prefer a hard cover cookbook, Pinterest gets too overwhelming for me! Plus sometimes flipping through the pages gets me inspired and not hate meal planning quite so much.
