Cooking for One
Easy, perfectly portioned recipes; flexible ingredient lists to suit your pantry; and plenty of room to improvise.
Preparing a meal for yourself is a different experience from cooking for others. It can be a fun, casual, and (of course) delicious affair, but there are challenges, from preventing wasted money on half-used and specialty ingredients to avoiding serving sizes that stretch a good thing to “this again?” leftover letdown. Cooking for One addresses all of this and more with smart shopping strategies, guidelines about ingredients to always have on hand, and tips for repurposing leftovers.
EXIBLE, IMPROVISATIONAL COOKING FOR ONE:
"Kitchen Improv" boxes offer suggestions for customizing recipes, including "Make it Vegetarian" or "Make it a Meal" options to make a side dish into a main event, as well as ingredient swaps to accommodate whatever you have on hand. The ingredient lists themselves are flexible—we list a few options for ingredients such as herbs, nuts, or cheeses.
ICONS OFFER INSPIRATION AND SOLUTIONS:
“Pantry Recipes” rely entirely on our checklist for a well-stocked pantry. “Makes Leftovers” icons highlight recipes that transform what’s left of one recipe into a whole new meal.
PLENTY OF ONE-PAN RECIPES KEEP IT SIMPLE:
You’ve got better ways to spend your time than washing a sink full of dishes. Our smart one-pan recipes translate prep and cooking strategies for meals that usually serve a crowd.
