Recipes For One – 4 Delicious Meal-For-One Recipes
Cooking is extremely therapeutic. Nothing settles the nerves, and helps you forget about the size of your work inbox, like losing yourself in chopping, slicing, and sautéing for a decent amount of time. While there's a lot of joy to be had in cooking for someone else, there's also plenty to be found in cooking on your Jack Jones. Taking the time to cook a meal for yourself is an ace act of self-care that a lot more of us should be enacting on a more regular basis. Not only that, but one of the best things of cooking a meal-for-one is that you don't have to share it with anyone else. Ben Lippett has come up with four simple and delicious recipes in this 'Recipes For One' feature which have all been expertly designed for cooking on your bill. From homemade pasta to a personal pan pizza, there's plenty here to get your engine revving.
