Whether you’re single, a workaholic, or just have a busy spouse and family, you are bound to find yourself home alone and hungry for a nice meal for one reason or another. Never fear, Ger-Nis is here to save you from grabbing for the take-out menu. While cooking for one can seem overwhelming and wasteful, not to mention time consuming and energy draining, and often a reminder of “aloneness”, it can actually improve your overall quality of life. Not only will you spend less money and hone in on new cooking skills, you’re making time for yourself to cater to your own needs and appreciate the food you’re eating. There’s no reason to let solo cooking bring you down or feel bad later about all of those leftovers. Learn simple tricks and techniques as well as shopping ideas and preserving tips to make gourmet, healthy, and delicious meals for one without waste or leftovers. You’ll see, too, how herbs are a wonderful way to transform simple staple ingredients into delicious meals by making them heartier, lighter, or completely exotic. Take the time to enjoy yourself and give yourself the attention and simple pleasures you deserve without too much hassle or cost!
