Is it really worth it to cook for just one and if so do you have some recipes to prove it?


Cooking for just one (not including the dogs) sometimes just seems like it's not worth it. Although I would love to have some homemade lasagna, meatballs, stuffed pork chops, (ok I have to stop now I'm getting hungry), it really doesn't seem like it's worth the trouble. Then when I think of the alternatives such as frozen dinners or eating out I just get bored. Does anybody have any quick, easy, and delicious recipes for one? OK maybe 2 or 3 and I could have left overs.

    Great idea from your great aunt and I not only love lasagna, but I really love making it. I should have thought of the tape idea. I used to put things in the freezer, forget when I put it in, and then throw it out, (unless it was recent) Thanks

    Not only this, but depending on what you do & what you make, your home-cooked meal could be more delicious than your other option. Like, I like to make omelets for myself, and I usually find them very tasty. It's hard to find a good fast food ome

    Love this recipe and I also love homemade chicken soup. That is one thing I've never liked from a can was soup. Thanks for the great easy recipe.

    I really like the idea of the meat with the veggies and trimmings all in one pan. Almost like a skillet breakfast. Thanks
