Recipes for only on or two people
Cooking For One Or Two
I thought this hub would be useful for students, people who find themselves alone, and for the first time have to cook only for one or two. Most recipe's are geared towards feeding an 'army', but to cook for only one or two people can sometimes be more daunting, than cooking for 6 or more.
Other recipe's assume some basic knowledge of cooking techniques but I have assumed none as I wrote it specifically for people who knows nothing or little about cooking. Like Me! My husband is the gourmet cook in our house.
These recipe's explain the simple things that one is supposed to know by instinct, such as how to fry sausages, boil, or fry an egg. The majority of the meals are quick, easy and economical to make. Ideally for students.
I will add more from time to time.
