Love cooking, but sometimes too busy to even think about spending time in the kitchen? I know the feeling - my life is all about flexible, easy and flavorful (and sometimes small batch) cooking. Here you'll find everything from 30-minute meals to pantry staple favorites to make getting a meal on the table easier than ever. And bonus! If you're cooking for one like me, I've also got tips for using up extra ingredients and making the most out of leftovers.
Small Batch Cooking
This is ONE girl, one kitchen after all. I am a firm believer that a meal for one should be just as special as a meal for two (or more). Check out my archive of single-serve meals that I turn to all the time when I'm looking for something delicious minus the leftovers.
