"If the pot is big enough, you can feed as many guests as you like."I was reminded of our old "One Pot Meals" by Margaret Gin because the New York Times has recently added a One Pot column, by Elaine Louie, which celebrates a different cuisine and one-pot recipe every week in the Wednesday food section. Last week, she had a recipe for Iron Pot Chicken which cooks in 12 minutes (!). This week, it's a 3-hour affair to make an ancient Spanish dish called Cocido. As is typical for one-pot cooking, though, much of the time is spent simmering on the stove. So it's possible to start it early and have it ready for a weeknight family dinner. There are, of course, many new and updated one pot meal cookbooks.

We haven't done too much one-pot cooking recently, but I'm inspired to try out some new things for weeknight dinners. In wintertime, the notion of a warm pot brewing dinner is appealing. Plus, it's always helpful to reduce the number of dishes you have to do afterward!
