Menu Plans

Help Choose Recipes for Meal Plans

      Hi - you are probably here because you are a friend I have inveigled into providing feedback - or just maybe you arrived by social media - if so, nice to meet you. I can't begin to tell you how curious I am about your thoughts!  But first a couple of disclaimers ...  This blog  is a a work in progress - numerous typos and links need attention. It's been a tough call trying to work out the balance between not perfecting things too much and providing enough content that you get a feel for what my blog is about. So please leap in - and in the meantime I'll get to work on fixing those typos and hopefully with some feedback from you, working out what recipe format works best, what type of details you found most helpful in the menu plans etc.  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.   Yet cooking for one is fundamentally different to cooking for two. From dealing with lots of leftover half cans of things,  recipe calculators that when dialed down for one person, give ingredient amounts such as 1/13th of a teaspoon 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!    So this blog is dedicated to single serve recipes, menu plans for one person, tips to make it easy to consistently cook healthy meals for one - but above all the creation of a community to help anyone cooking for one, for whatever reason, stay inspired and motivated, not to mention away from the toaster or takeaway menu!  I'd love 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 track cooking tasty, healthy, interesting dinners for one.  I look forward to your frank and fearless feedback! Kelly  PS: The best way to provide feedback is to use the comments section at the bottom of this post.   For more about me and why I'm passionate about making cooking for one easy, tasty, economical, nutritious and accessible  read here.   For more about the type of meals I cook and how I go about cooking for one - read the first of my  Kitchen Insider  blog posts - where I interview myself!

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. 

Yet cooking for one is fundamentally different to cooking for two. From dealing with lots of leftover half cans of things,  recipe calculators that when dialed down for one person, give ingredient amounts such as 1/13th of a teaspoon 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!
