This blog is my way to help other singles learn to cook for themselves at home. Cooking is fun and rewarding. It’s a great way to take control over your health and your wallet. Eating in restaurants and getting takeout can run up your credit card, and your waistline, pretty quickly! Cooking at home is a great way to keep your food budget under control. It’s also a great way to keep an eye on what you’re putting into your body. Lets stay healthy!
Most recipes you’ll find out there end up yielding enough for 4-6 portions… but you’re only one tummy! The good news is I’ll be sharing recipes that can easily be kept in the fridge and reheated in small portions later, or even frozen in individual portions to be enjoyed another day.
Start saving all your yogurt and sour cream containers! You’ll be needing them 🙂
My name is Kristine. I’m a 26 year old woman living in Ottawa, Canada. I studied cooking and have been cooking in restaurants across Ottawa since 2006. I live by myself which makes figuring out what to eat tricky.
I like to eat really well. That means a few different things to me: great taste, feeling healthy, eating whole foods and buying good products. It’s a combination of everything I love about food, cooking and the whole industry surrounding it.
I budget about 50$ a week for grocery shopping. That’s breakfast and dinner for the week, a couple lunches and generally leftovers in the freezer or pantry. Lunch is generally provided for me at work so I don’t really include it in that 50$. I’ll try and keep the recipes I share with you as budget friendly as possible.
If you ever have any questions don’t be shy to ask! Send me an e-mail and I’ll do my best to get back to you with helpful answers.
