It seems like the baking and blogging world is filled with recipes from everything to drinks to dessert. And while I am always willing to try out a new recipe- I do sometimes struggle with some of the recipes out there. So many are family sized entrees. And being myself, I find it hard to justify making a family sized recipe. And I know what you are probably thinking- just freeze or eat the leftovers. Well- the truth is my freezer is a no man's land of icy frozen blocks of nameless food items. And leftovers- I can only eat them once or twice and then I am done.
So, I try to cook meals and food items that are simple and can be made in much smaller portions.
Here are a few of the items that I have made recently.
Caprese Pasta Salad. I even added some bacon to mine. Because crumbled crispy bacon makes everything taste a little bit better.
An old standby that I love. Eggs. I can eat eggs anyway and for any meal. Scrambled eggs for dinner is a favorite of mine. For dinner I tend to add veggies and cheese.
And one of my favorites- a cold pasta salad with veggies. I ended up adding some shredded rotisserie chicken to this pasta salad to add some protein And my favorite dressing- homemade Italian. Simple and delicious.
Are there any simple recipes or meals that you make for one or two? Drop me a message and let me know. I would love to experiment and have some new recipes to try.
