I live in a Boston neighborhood and have a tiny, tiny kitchen. But that doesn’t stop me from making a huge mess as I try out new dishes and return to familiar favorites.

I am constantly trying to convince my single friends (men and women) of all ages that you need to cook for yourself. It will make you feel cared for and eventually you’ll start inviting people over and caring for them because, hey, everyone has to eat, right? Cooking and sharing a meal is an act of creativity that everyone should do every single day. (OK, try for once or twice a week at least.) Light some candles, set fresh flowers on the table – this stuff feeds the soul, I swear, even if it is just you and a feline circling around your ankles or sitting on the place mat next to you, gazing into your eyes.
