20 Of The Best ONE POT Comfort Meals

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

One of the most popular recipe posts here at Food and the City is without a doubt our One Pot Pasta dish. Can we blame you? Def not, since what's better than cooking up an amazing meal in literally one pot. That means you have just one dish to clean, one dish to pay attention too, and one dish to hold while you eat it straight out of the pot while watching The Real Housewives.

If you've got a hankering for some more one pot meals to blanket you in happiness, here's a roundup of TWENTY of our favorites. That should keep you busy. (and full.)

GIFT FOR HIM: The Foodie


Over the course of the holiday shopping season, we'll be brining you super fun ideas to tackle all of the people on your list. Today, I'm so excited to tell you about The Mantry - a foodie box for the modern man in your life.


If you're familiar with Birchbox, or any other curated-box service, then you're already familiar with the concept. Its a box FILLED WITH FOOD, you guys. And not samples! Actual full-size products of snackies and goodies fit for the modern man's pantry.

Think - your dad, your brothers, your boyfriend, your BFF! I know for certain that every guy in my life would love one of these. 


There were the goodies that arrived in our Mantry box (you can check out some of their other past boxes here)! That Sweet Georgia Soul BBQ has officially invaded my mind forever, and I. Am. In. Love.

Now I know what you're thinking - "Mel, I like food and so do my girlfriends." Duh, this can totally be great for the fabulous women in your life, too. Who doesn't like the gift of food?

Satan. Satan probably doesn't like the gift of food.


Overall, we highly recommend checking out The Mantry this year for all of those delicious men in your life! These are my favorite types of gifts to give, as they're super different and a sure winner! :)

GIFTS FOR HER: Under $50

We've officially started our holiday shopping here at Food and the City! I tried to hold out singing Christmas carols for as long as possible, but here in New York, the holiday season is already in full swing! The Rockefeller Tree arrived the other day, the ice-skating rinks are open, and the decorations are starting to pop up. To kick off the season with you guys, we rounded up a list of great gifts she'll love, and all under $50!

Be sure to check back with us all season long for more holiday gift ideas! :)
