Country Living One-Dish Country Suppers: Delicious Casseroles, Fritattas, Roasts, and Stews

Country Living, Manufactured by Hearst Books $19.95 (127p) ISBN 978-1-58816-718-7
Those looking to get some use out of their Dutch ovens and stockpots, seek no further: virtually all of this book's rich, hearty, family-style recipes call for one or the other. Though there are a few exotic dishes (Monkfish Stew with Saffron and Cream, Roast Chicken with Preserved Lemons) scattered throughout, the Country Living staff favor the familiar: beef stew, chicken pot pie and 11 kinds of chili are the orders of the day. Cooks won't find themselves with a sink full of dirty pots, pans and bowls after preparing these dishes, but lengthy cooking times mean they won't find too many recipes that can be whipped up on a whim, either. That said, those with the proper equipment and a taste for comfort food will find this a useful resource.
