Single and Cooking for One? Despair Is Not An Option

November 27, 2012

So it's just you and, once again, you're cooking for one. So what? Do not panic, do not give up, do not be discouraged. Your dinner does not have to be pizza, takeout, or vodka. (Though I wouldn't complain if someone brought me a takeout pizza and vodka.) Help is here in the form of the KIRO radio show Seattle Kitchen. As a single person in Seattle who likes to be in the kitchen, I was invited to be a guest on the show, along with Cook, Author, and Urban Farmer Amy Pennington. Though Amy and I are at odds on some issues (crock pots, ahem), we both agree that there are plenty of ways to cook creatively and deliciously. And, as we reveal on the broadcast, maybe use those culinary skills to land a date.

Cohosted by Chefs and Restaurateurs Tom Douglas and Thierry Rautureau (aka "The Chef in the Hat"), who contribute their welcome thoughts on cooking for one, Seattle Kitchen is a fun and funny listen. Also discussed: single people baking muffins (pro or con?), grocery store celery defacing, and barley.

What advice or tips do you have if you are single and cooking for one? Let me know in the comments.
