Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Elaborating on the meal-in-a-pot theme, Dojny and Barnard (AMA Family Health Cookbook) offer quick recipes that can be cooked in a skillet, which they redefine to include the sauté pan. The authors, who write a monthly column for Bon Appétit magazine, begin by advising how to choose the right cookery. Lemon Asparagus Chicken Stir Fry, for instance, can be cooked in minutes in a heavy skillet, as can Cumin-Crusted Pork Paillards with Mojo Pan Sauce; Tuscan sausages and Cannellini Beans on Arugula is best sautéed in a deep, covered pan. Caruso's full-color photos beautifully display such dishes as Thai Fish Bouillabaisse, which is made with coconut milk and red curry paste, or Pan-Seared and Braised Veal Chops Provencal. Dojny and Barnard also cover plenty of timesaving meatless dishes, such as Tunisian Eggplant and Chickpea Ragout; Meatless Mexican Monte Cristo sandwiches; and several varieties of the ultimate skillet meal, the omelet.

From Booklist

People who live in small apartments have no room to store multiple pots and pans in all sizes. They also don't have huge stoves where they can simmer, fry, and saute all at the same time. Brooke Dojny and Melanie Bernard address this issue in A Flash in the Pan . The only cooking equipment recipes in this book require is a single skillet. Thus, many of the recipes resemble stir-frys. Chicken breast strips and asparagus combine with garlic and lemon. Beef, peppers, broccoli, and onions marry in hoisin sauce. Some recipes, such as Swedish Meatballs, require a bowl for mixing. Others produce quick versions of classics on the order of sauerbraten and corned beef hash. Best of all, these simple recipes will inspire the imaginative to substitute ingredients to create personalized meals. Mark Knoblauch

My husband bought this cookbook for me, and of all the cookbooks that we tried, this turned out to be my favorite cookbook that I use the often. Reasons are many -- many dishes look fancy but are often easy to do and taste very fabulous, and they usually don't require hard-to-find ingredients. Another plus is that you don't use a lot of pans and stuff -- you just use the same skillet for everything (though you'll need to transfer some foods to a waiting dish for some recipes).
Also, though the cookbook isn't considered low-carb, many recipes are suitable for people who can't eat high carb and friendly to people who follow whole food/paleo diets like we do. Also, thankfully, the cookbook authors don't seem to have hangups about using good fats, such as butter and olive oil.
Our favorite recipes are: steak with sherried mushrooms and fennel pork chops with charred lemons. Also fabulous is the lamb with mint-garlic-caper sauce.

A Flash in the Pan is a great cookbook. There are several things I love about it. The recipes produce delicious results. Two of my favorites are the Tuscan Sausage and Beans and the Red Snapper with Warm Mango Salsa. The recipes, while simple and easy to follow, are really nice for entertaining as well. Recommendations are made as to what to serve as side dishes. You only use one skillet or one pot. I can always prepare a very nice yet quick meal using this book. It's one of my favorites and I have a great selection of cook books!

I had a copy of this this that I got from a friend way back when and had to seek out another copy. One of the easiest/best cookbooks for weeknight recipes. I've made most of these recipes and virtually every one is a winner.

I am a collector of cookbooks and an avid cook. Out of all the cookbooks I have ever purchased this is my favorite. I have tried many of the recipes and they have been wonderful. It is worth buying the book for the Skillet Spinach Pesto Lasagne Recipe alone.

This is my second copy of Flash in the Pan. Now that I am retired and cooking more frequently, I find that I use this book two or three times a week. I am taking a second copy with me when I head south for the winter. The recipes are easy to follow, varied enough for every taste and absolutely delicious.

If you are cooking in a confined space such as a small RV or boat this is a great cookbook. Most RV oriented cookbooks have conventional, uninteresting recipes that rely heavily on processed ingredients, and are not very healthy. This book features gourmet style, but easy to prepare recipes that are healthy and tasty. My RV has a small two-burner stove, and I can make any of these recipes easily. Also nice are the recommendations for side dishes to go with the main courses. Highly recommended!

I first bought this book when it was first printed, many years ago. I use it all the time on camping trips. I also use many of the recipes at home when I have more than one pan to work with. so, i bought this book from Amazon to give to my sister who also loves to cook, and also uses it for camping.
