As a single person who cooks, I often find myself eating alone–and I don’t find that to be a problem. Eating alone doesn’t mean that you are lonely. It simply means you can please yourself as to what you cook and eat. Many seem to think that it’s a barren occasion and one that does not deserve much attention to the food. I disagree. It’s when there can be the most attention to food.
What Do You Cook When No One Is Watching? from Taste magazine sums it up nicely. True it’s promoting a cookbook (SOLO by Anita Lo) which I suspect I will buy after I’ve seen the sample on my Kindle. There are not many cookbooks addressed to cooking for one so it’s delightful to think there is another to peruse.
A son gôut!
Great find! I still have a cookbook for one or two from when I first left college. It was great to have good recipes already divided down to a manageable size. I still have favs in there I use now for just hubby and me.
It’s easier to double a single-serving recipe than to try to cut down one for even four servings. What’s the cookbook that you have I also like Nigel Slater’s recipes. They are “loose” enough to adapt them for one if needed; a lot of his are for one or maybe two.
Finally was in a place where I could look at the cookbook: Better Homes and Gardens, Meals for One or Two. I don’t know if it’s still in print.
That is still around–Amazon from 3rd part sellers. I think I’ll check the library and see if it’s there.
