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.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
