I'm a single woman in my 30's and I'm not a good cook. In fact, I'm a terrible cook. I've yet to turn on the stove since moving into my new home months ago. I'm tired of take-out, it's not good for my wallet or my thighs .
I stumbled onto this site and I love it!! I've learned so much in just half an hour of browsing here. You all seem to be extremely nice and helpful and I'd love to become a part of this community.
Cooking is not that difficult. For me it is very satisfying to make a large meal and have everyone like it.
I would find it difficult for me to have the drive to cook if I was alone. If you are just cooking for your self or a date then I would start with something like sandwiches, chicken breasts, or fish. All of those have good recipes that can be made in smaller batches. Soups, stews, and casseroles would make you lots of food that would most likely require you to freeze if you wanted to eat it all.
Pay attention to your cooking when you are cooking. Some meals are more forgiving than others.
I wish you luck in your quest to make delicious meals.
I'll take this time to step in and say Welcome, and disagree with D & S just a leeetle beeeet. I cook for myself and have no problem finding the drive, but then, I really love to eat Plus it helps living in a little town where the take out is quite limited.
Don't let living alone slow you down from making something that catches your eye.
