Decent little cookbook for someone who has a small kitchen / hates cleaning dishes. I most enjoyed reading their dialogues leading into each recipe... Picked up a lot of good kitchen / shopping tricks from them.

I've only made a single recipe from this book, which was good, but far too salty. I'd wager it needed less than half the salt they put in, and I love me some salt... Had me a bit worried about other recipes.

Kind of neat that they split the book into pot or pan type rather than protein or

If you like reading little stories that go along with each recipe, you'll like this cookbook. Some recipes use more expensive ingredients so it's definitely not a book for a person just learning how to cook or someone living on a tight budget. The one pan concept is great though and there is an explanation of how to purchase your cookware and which pieces can be on the cheaper side but still effective. Also, the entire book is in color photographs so you can see what the dish looks like.

First, let me say that a cookbook title that alludes to Two Girls, One Cup is pure evil genius. Fruit of the Devil .
In my thirties, I worked as a line cook. I had ambitions at the time to open a restaurant with my sister. I thought I was following a personal passion (it was the 90s - people loved that word then), but it turns out I was just on the leading edge of the foodie fad. I didn't have the talent, the capacity for hard work, and, most particularly, the single-minded devotion (to make it

Yes, this is a cookbook for folks to use one pan - if one is already familiar with the type of cooking these two guys do. Quite understandably elicits a different reaction from anyone who's used to Paula Deen, or what the website tells you can easily make a meal in minutes.

Lovely book. Really great for folks who don't want to necessarily deal with the headache of reservations at Animal or Son of Gun in Los Angeles.

One of the best cookbooks I have ever bought. Everything I have made out of it has been spectacular. I'm not sure what other people are talking about when they say the ingredients are hard to find or the recipes are too complicated. Most of the ingredients I have on hand or I can obtain at Whole Foods and I haven't found any recipe hard to make.

This cookbook is such a fun companion in the kitchen, complete with menus, conversations between the two eponymous dudes, and one-pan recipes. Recipes and menus are simple yet interesting, and feature a lovely combination of ingredients. A must-read for chefs looking for some inspiration in the kitchen.

This is too high level for a fool in the kitchen like myself. When I see "one pan" I think "easy". However, when there are (lots of) ingredients I have to look up just to know what they are, I have to just say no to this cook book.

I liked this cookbook and will be looking at it again. Great ideas for really interesting food with minimal clean up.

Unusual recipes and excellent photographs. Most were too difficult to replicate but worth a look. Somewhat recommended.

NPR doesn't lie -- it's a solid cookbook -- but the book title does: the bolognese called for two pans.
