New 2013 Series: Cooking For One Recipes

I have been so excited about this series for months and now I can finally tell you!

A little ways back I was online looking at recipes and getting so frustrated.  All the portions were HUGE and the recipes full of complicated ingredients.  I don’t own a fancy spice rack or expensive kitchen equipment.  I eat most of my meals on a tv tray next to my laptop- I don’t use garnish!

I wanted a resource with SIMPLE meals made from few ingredients but are still pretty healthy and taste good.

So I am super excited to introduce my new series “Cooking For One Recipes.”

Each week on Wednesday I will publish a new recipe with portions appropriate for one or two people.  (If you have a family or need bigger portions you can of course increase them.)

Some of the recipes will be mine and some will be contributed by other bloggers.

Watch next Wednesday for the first recipe!

    There are just the two of us but I have not adjusted to cooking for two. It has been 37 years of marriage and I still cannot manage to cook a meal for under 5 people – which is exactly the number of people in my family when I cooked with Mom and Dad as a teenager. So I too am excited about the One – Two Cooking idea. I hope you will be able to introduce/use items that are on sale the week of the recipe. Immediate gratification is a wonderful thing!

    I am thrilled with the Cooking for One idea. As a single adult, I am always stuck with leftovers.
