AMERICA’S HOME COOKING: ONE SKILLET COOKING
AVAILABLE FOR MARCH 2007
The next installment in WQED’s popular America’s Home Cooking series will be available for March 2007. America’s Home Cooking: One Skillet Cooking, featuring Chris Fennimore and Nancy Polinsky, is devoted to those hearty recipes that family memories are made of. But, whether slow simmered or quick sautéed, these dishes go from stove to the table in one pan.
The program is presented by WQED Multimedia Pittsburgh and distributed by American Public Television.
Chris and Nancy are in the kitchen with some talented home cooks. They prepare everything from soups and stews to cheese-filled casseroles – as long as it can be made in one pan. The idea is to gather everyone’s favorite recipes that will leave hearty eaters satisfied and the kitchen and clean-up crew unstressed. One skillet cooking is the no-fuss way to satisfying meals. Recipes featured in the program include fish and pasta, as well as desserts.
Complete list of recipes featured on the program:
Skillet Kielbasa and Pierogies

AMERICA’S HOME COOKING:
About the series:
In August 1993, WQED Multimedia’s Director of Programming, Chris Fennimore incorporated his own love for cooking with his responsibility for providing quality television programs and inaugurated the cooking marathon format with a program entitled “Zucchini Cheesecake.” The success of Chris’ local cooking marathons led to the idea to take the series nationwide.
In March of 2002 the first two national cooking programs for this series, America’s Home Cooking: Comfort Food and America’s Home Cooking: Italian, were released. Following the successful debut of both programs, WQED produced an additional seven titles for the series helping stations across the public television system raise millions of fundraising dollars. One Skillet Cooking is the tenth installment of the America’s Home Cooking series.
