Cooking for one

I have a long, very long, ultra-passionate blog post sitting in my drafts right now, waiting to be posted. But I do not have the energy or patience required to read it and edit it and make it make sense. I also have another one of those posts waiting to be written but instead of writing it, I am going to write about a topic near and dear to my heart:


I have just spent the last hour or so googling things like “meals for one” and “dinner for one.” I am trying to figure out how to maximize my meals and minimize my spending. I’m single and pinching pennies these days and let’s be real, I totally never had any problem before throwing away tons of wasted food.

Do you know how freaking difficult it is for me to find single recipes? I can find delicious meals for families of four, but I do not want to spend four lunches and dinners eating the same thing over and over again. I also don’t wait to spend each day picking from the same twelve items (apples, yogurt, eggs, peanut butter, etc.) or living out of boxes.


My plan is to hit up Fresh and Easy once I move tomorrow. I’ve got everything moved except my bed and dresser (you know… the big stuff) and will be borrowing my mom’s car to do it tomorrow. Once I’m moved all the way, I’ll stock up on food and see what I can do about getting stuff to make easy meals that have variety and aren’t piece meal.

Do you have any easy recipes for one that you’d recommend (or recipes that you can easily half/quarter for a single person)? Share them here with me!

Tell me what you think!
