I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am you have stopped by my blog.
I would love it to be the place that anyone can go to make cooking for one easier. Be that by providing ONLY single serve recipes so that you no longer having to be a maths genius to convert recipes, or helping you solve problems and stay motivated by being the home of an active forum for people cooking for one.
But first a couple of disclaimers ...
This blog is still a work in progress - meaning that I'm still working on formats and there are a fair number of links and typos that need fixing.
So please bear with me - finding the balance between not perfecting things too much and providing enough content that you get a feel for what the blog is about has been a tough call.
In the meantime, please dig in!
I would LOVE your feedback. And to know more about the types of recipes you would like to see featured and most of all what would be helpful to keep you on stay on track cooking tasty, healthy, interesting dinners for one.
Why I think a blog about cooking for one is important
So why am I doing this?
It's because I think cooking for one person is challenging - yet there are surprisingly few resources or recipes dedicated to making a meal for one person.
There are quite a few for one or two, but I believe cooking for one is fundamentally different to cooking for two.
From dealing with lots of leftover half cans of things, recipe calculators that don't convert well for single serves, to the simple reality of maintaining the discipline to cook a proper meal when there is no one to hold you accountable, there is a big difference!
Above all I would love to create a community so that for whatever reason you are cooking for one, you can call on help to solve problems, get inspiration and stay motivated. (and away from the take away menu!)
I look forward to your frank and fearless feedback! Kelly
