Every day I’m in the kitchen, I feel more and more confident in my abilities as a kick butt home cook. I’m not a fancy cook, but I like to experiment and learn new techniques. I don’t have access to worldly ingredients, but I use as much real food as possible. And, while I don’t have a large family to cook for on a daily basis, I have managed to adapt my favorite dishes into a convenient and manageable size for two people.
I think learning to cook for one to two people is really important. It’s economical, it’s frugal, it’s efficient, and most importantly: It prevents my husband from eating leftovers for lunch for 10.348 days.
I partnered up with Country Bob’s and adapted my mother’s family-famous meatball recipe to accommodate two people with healthy appetites. Or three people with normal appetites. Or four people who eat like dainty little birds.
