Cooking For One... After 25+ Years

Kezzabou | | Feb 26, 2011 07:57 AM

Headline says it all. Not used to this, am looking forward to finding recipes here that'll keep my belly full and happy.

But! I'm living in a converted basement, with limited cooking facilities. Am planning on buying a toaster oven, a double burner and possibly a small electric griddle. Just got a two-person crockpot, a mini Foreman grill and a small coffee maker. What other appliances/tools would most people consider essential? (I have my can opener and measuring cups, and some good knives, FWIW.)

My space is limited, so I don't want tons of things. Do I really want or need a rice cooker, for example?

With a small fridge, how easy will it be to keep my menus healthy and fresh? I imagine the turnaround will be fast, but obviously I'm looking forward to having more than sandwiches and salads, ramen and Lean Cuisine.
