Summary: Goodreads
From a creator of the internationally bestselling 4 Ingredients series comes a new, must-have cookbook designed to bring joy and flavor back into the kitchen. 4 Ingredients One Pot, One Bowl is an ingenious collection of sweet and savory dishes full of fresh, easy-to-find ingredients that require only one pot and one bowl. That means less cleanup and more time enjoying life and delicious food with the friends and family you love.

In this book, you’ll find more than eighty recipes for tasty and deceptively simple casseroles, roasts, soups and stews, pizzas, pasta, pies, and desserts. Imagine Creamy Bacon & Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken, French Lamb Casserole, Apple Crumble, and Baked Rice Pudding—all using four or fewer ingredients. With One Pot, One Bowl, life just got easier… and a whole lot more delicious
Ok, biggest selling point for this book - each recipe really does use only four ingredients and one pot.  If you really felt like cutting back on your washing up, you could always save on the plate or bowl and eat right out of the pot - only kidding :)
There is a fantastic selection of breakfasts, snacks, lunches, desserts and a choice of some recipes that can be cooked in a slow cooker or casserole.  Your choices are simple, fast and elegant and you will have a hard time choosing what to make first.  I'd love to try the sausage bake, or the macaroni bake, they both look so good and how about chocolate grapes for dessert, or baby banoffees?
This looks like the perfect cookbook for anyone who is unsure in the kitchen, or who has less than the usual number of utensils and pots.  I'm thinking it would be great gift for my son when it comes out.  Pity that's not until February.  Mark this one on your 'to buy' list.
