Tired all the time? Try Elizabeth's amazing one-pot cure! Elizabeth Yarnell used to be too tired to get out of bed. But now this mom of two has energy to spare, thanks to one-pot meals that could work for you, too! --Women's World magazine, July 17, 2007
MS opened door to 1-pot technique. Dinner ready in a little more than an hour
You can do one of two things when you learn you have contracted a debilitating illness: waste energy cursing the world or fight back. Elizabeth Yarnell is among those fighting back... (These are) recipes that strike a balance between health, taste and nutrition -- as good for those living with MS as those who are not.--Denver Post, May 10, 2006
One-Pot wizardry. Patented 'infusion cooking' turns out layers of flavor
Yarnell has patented a way of cooking in a Dutch oven, giving new meaning to the phrase one-pot meals. By layering the various components of a dish, she has figured out a way to do an all-in-one meal that doesn't turn into a melange of meat and vegetables, aka a soup, stew or casserole.
Rather, each layer can be lifted out with tongs so that you end up with perfectly cooked ingredients, such as broccoli, chicken and rice, without using three pots to make them.
"I call it 'infusion cooking,'" Yarnell says. "When everything goes into the pot and into the high heat (in the oven) and the ingredients heat up, they release their moisture, and that's what cooks everything."
... Yarnell cuts vegetables and layers them in the pot, undistracted by (her young son) and not missing a beat. There's no mess, other than a cutting board, to clean up. She sits down to talk during the 45 minutes that the food cooks.
Miraculously, not only is the meal done on time, but it's delicious. So delicious that within a matter of ments everyone has cleaned his plate.

In fact, one of the best parts of this cookbook is that there is no need to pre-cook any of the ingredients, making clean-up a breeze. After making several recipes from this book, I usually end up only having to wash a cutting board, a knife, and maybe a bowl that I used to mix up the ingredients, besides, of course, the Dutch oven itself.
I ended up ordering an inexpensive Lodge 6-quart Dutch oven from Amazon for just under $50 so I could double the recipes, and it has also worked great and is very easy to clean.
I also want to add that I'm a vegetarian, and this book has a lot of recipes in it for us veggies. All of the recipes are also very healthy and nutritious. The only downside of the cookbook is that the author doesn't list nutritional information for each recipe. I'm hoping that she'll provide that information in any other cookbooks that she puts out -- and I'm definitely hoping that she writes more!
All in all, this is a great book with delicious, healthy, clean-eating recipes!
There is little to no overlap between the two in recipes, but a comparison between styles shows what I like/don't like about the "Glorious One Pot Meals" book:
-Spiral binding that lays flat makes more sense.
-Lack of color pictures.
-The print IS rather small, especially as most pages have
blank space on them.
-Quantities should be given in metric as well as imperial for worldwide cooks.
However I don't think these slight negatives will prevent you from enjoying this book. I highly recommend both books.
By the way if you are concerned about your Le Creuset knobs melting at 450 degrees, you can now purchase stainless steel ones from bedbathbeyond for about $8 each.
For the quick work-week dinner, this technique ROCKS! I can come home, toss together a few things from my fridge and/or freezer and pop it in the oven in about the same time it takes to lookup the pizza delivery number and place an order. Then I can lay on the sofa, take a shower, talk on the phone....in about 40 minutes or so, we have dinner: rice or pasta, meat/chicken/fish, and veggies.
What is so unreal is that everything tastes like it was cooked independently and we don't have to fuss. Oh, cleanup after dinner is only the one pot.
I am using this technique about 2-3 times a week, and so far every dinner has been different and has come out great. I highly recommend this book especially for the busy person who wants healthy meals.
I have tried many of the recipes, as well as changing up a few for our tastes, using different vegetables, etc and most all of them have turned out tasty. Mostly I use the recipes that contain only meat and vegetables, no rice or pasta.
Most of the vegetables have a sweet, roasted flavor.
I liked it so much, I purchased a dutch oven and a Glorious One-Pot Meals book as a wedding gift for someone.

In this day and age, no photos, I wonder if this was just a collection of recipes thrown in a book.
