“It’s time to make those ‘I don’t want to cook!’ days easier than ever with the help of one pot recipes! From Lemon Dijon Chicken with Orzo and Peas to Jalapeño Popper Mac and Cheese, each recipe only calls for one main cooking vessel, whether it’s a pot, a pan, or a Dutch oven. That means that you’re not only spending less time cooking, you’re also spending less time cleaning up and can really enjoy the healthy, delicious meal you’ve made. Dinner can be a challenge but with The “I Don’t Want to Cook” Book: Dinners Done in One Pot, it’ll be a snap to make a healthy meal for you and your family any day of the week.”
