Book Review: The Complete One Pot Cookbook

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

Cooking the one-pot or one-pan way is so easy and convenient, whether you’re using a Dutch oven, slow cooker, sheet pan, or Instant Pot®. And to help make meal-making even easier, there’s a new cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen that includes 400 one-pot recipes! It’s called The Complete One Pot: 400 Meals for Your Skillet, Sheet Pan, Instant Pot®, Dutch Oven, and More. It’s touted as the only one-pot cookbook you’ll ever need, and after looking through my review copy, I have to agree!

The Primrose Bakery


While I’m on the subject of baking and cupcakes, it seemed like the perfect time to tell you about the Primrose Bakery, a quaint little place I discovered on the web. There are two locations logo2in London, and they make some really delicious–looking cupcakes. They have a cute, clever little logo, too!

It looks like just the sort of cozy place you’d expect to see in London. I found some photos on the Primrose Bakery website of the bakery itself and their cupcake creations that I thought I’d share with you.

The owners founded Primrose Bakery in October of 2004 and their cupcakes quickly became a hit. In addition to their marvelous-looking cupcakes, they also offer cakes, biscuits, handmade croissants, and other breakfast items. Wow, I’m ready to go! It looks like a wonderful place to take a coffee break or enjoy a cup of tea with a special sweet treat.

And now, what you are probably really interested in seeing are those yummy cupcakes! We’ll just have to settle for imagining how good they are…

Customers of the Primrose Bakery include U2, Kate Moss, and Jude Law, who is quoted on the website as saying, “I defy anyone to find a better cupcake.” So it sounds like they have some pretty satisfied customers! 🙂 They have even come out with a cookbook called Cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery, and you can order it on Amazon. I don’t have it myself, but I think I’d like to add it to my cookbook collection!

I’m having an irresistible urge to eat a cupcake right now…that’s the downside of blogging about food! 🙂
