DINNER IN ONE: EXCEPTIONAL & EASY ONE-PAN MEALS

by Melissa Clark

Simply Julia cookbook cover on top of grey concrete background

100 all-new super-simple and incredibly delicious one-pot, one-pan, one-sheet—one-everything!—recipes from the New York Times star food writer and bestselling author of Dinner in French.

Melissa Clark brings her home cook’s expertise and no-fuss approach to the world of one-pot/pan cooking. With nearly all of the recipes being made in under one hour, the streamlined steps ensure you are in and out of the kitchen without dirtying a multitude of pans or spending more time than you need to on dinner.

Expect to find a bevy of sheet-pan suppers (Miso-Glazed Salmon with Roasted Sugar Snap Peas), skillet dinners (Cheesy Meatball Parm with Spinach), Instant Pot® pinch hitters (Cheaters Chicken and Dumplings), comforting casseroles (Herby Artichoke and Gruyere Bread Pudding) that you can assemble right in the baking dish, crowd-pleasing one-pot pasta meals (Gingery Coconut Noodles with Shrimp and Greens), vegetable-forward mains, and dozens of tips for turning a vegetarian or meat-based recipe vegan. And since no dinner is complete without dessert, you’ll find a chapter of one-bowl cakes, too—from an Easy Chocolate Fudge Torte to a Ricotta-Olive Oil Pound Cake.

These are simple, delicious recipes for weekdays, busy evenings, and any time you need to get a delicious, inspiring meal on the table quickly—with as little clean-up as possible.

  • Dinner in One with a signed-bookplate by the author

Kendall D.

"I must say I am very impressed. Quality ingredients and a generous amount. Off and on I have tried different subscription boxes and they never quite meet my expectations ... Hardcover Cook doesn’t disappoint. I’m already anxious for my next delivery.

Leslie S.

"So impressed with the ingredients and the gorgeous cookbook! Can’t wait to try some of the recipes! Also very excited what our next box might bring!"

Sarah P.

"My Hardcover Cook subscription has been great! The food items are nice and are adding new flavors to my pantry. And I never thought I'd make Japanese cuisine — it seemed out of reach, but this box made it feel approachable (and it turns out, it is!). I look forward to the next one."
