Some of us have always been the house “chef”.  Some of us have never cooked at all.  Now what do you do?  And how do you cook for one?

To help, our members have brought together these recipes.  Most make just 2 servings.  One for now and one for the freezer.

We hope you enjoy making and eating them and that they will help make your life a little easier.
