Did we have you at one-pot? Simple recipe, minimal gear, and cleanup is easy. To wash up a seasoned cast-iron skillet, don’t use soap or scouring powder, which will harm its coating.

Are you an avid cook or baker? For a well-stocked pantry, supplement the items on Real Simple’s Basic Spice List with the following.
- Allspice. Though it tastes like a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, this aromatic seasoning is really just a single spice. It complements both sweet dishes (think apple and pumpkin pies) and savory dishes (such as Caribbean jerk chicken).
- Ancho chilies, ground. Often described as having a spicy raisin flavor, ancho chilies are sweeter than most other varieties. Commonly used in Mexican cuisine.
- Anise seeds. These greenish brown seeds have a licorice flavor. Delicious in both sweet and savory recipes, they’re particularly prevalent in Italian and Southeast Asian cooking.
