Dear Single Lou Who –
Have you ever wondered what to do with a recipe that calls for half of an egg? How do you store 18 slices of bacon when your recipe only calls for a single strip? What on earth is a mini loaf pan, anyway?
Well have no fear. My diaries from a single kitchen are here. In this section, I will post interesting tidbits that help keep us singles cooking in style. Life in the solo lane is a constant work in progress. Afterall, it isn’t easy to write a recipe that makes only one serving from eighteen!
The Food-tionary Comfy Kitchen Style is where I will post things I’ve learned about food. I mean, vanilla paste, anyone? Someone has to explain what these things are, where to buy them, and why you really should bypass the substitute route. Enter – Jack Foody and his deep thoughts and ministrations on food. Hopefully, this will become a compendium of useful knowledge including how to store half an egg/avocado/apple et cetera. Remember the 18 slices of bacon? Yep, we can store those too – for months in the freezer in single slice packets. No topic is too small when I’ve spent money on it. Ha!
Petits Pots et Mini Cocottes – the Single Kitchen Battery. Their recipe may be designed to feed an army, but mine are strictly for the hungriest number of all – one. Apparently, trying to feed yourself, and only yourself, results in some pretty awkward outcomes. Where do you find a measuring spoon for 1/32 teaspoon? Well, I’m glad you asked! I intend to tell you all about it here. 😀
Cooking Rule of Thumb – Here lies all of the notes cleaned out of the mental attic, and specially preserved, so I wouldn’t have to remember them anymore! These are all the numbers, charts, diagrams and passwords you need to remember on a daily basis to eat alone. Here, I will break down an egg into egg beater equivalents and provide useful breakdowns of tablespoons, teaspoons and so on.
