Cozy, No-Fuss Family Meals… In One Pan!

To me, there’s nothing worse than having to wash every pot and pan you own after preparing a terrific meal. Give me a good one pan recipe, and I’m your BFF! 

These five savory recipes were designed to serve four hearty portions using only your average kitchen staple—a 12-inch skillet. 

Now here’s my little secret: I am the proud, doting owner of an extra-large 13½- x 3-inch (6-quart) sauté pan

This oversized darlin’ allows me to double these recipes so I can serve family and guests in half the time. 

Lemon Rosemary Roast Chicken with Potatoes

When it comes to cozy winter dinners, roast chicken works overtime, warming our hearts and our tummies with its traditional and rustic character. A little white wine, rosemary, and lemon, plus a hefty serving of baby potatoes in assorted colors, make this bird a simple, reliable classic.

A little south-of-the-border flair for Sunday night dinner.

Italian Style Halibut with Spaghetti and Sage

A piece of fresh halibut is ultra-low in fat (YAY!), doesn’t require much seasoning, and bakes up beautifully to an appealing snow white. Not a “fishy” fish, its taste is really clean, and it has a nice, firm texture.  (Did I say YAY?)

Loaded Cheesey Rice with Vegetables
