Cooking is fun and all, but having to do loads of dishes afterward is the opposite. This is especially the case if you are dishwasher-less. Thankfully, plenty of food bloggers feel the same and as a result, have come up with recipes that only require a single pot or pan. So after all your holiday feasting, you can start the New Year off with some meals that are easy to clean up after.
