I have a friend who just moved into a place where each of the roomates cooks their own food. She's having a real problem because she doesn't know how to cook meals for just herself. She is used to makeing large meals for her family. She's not a fan of left overs and is looking to save money. I've told her that she can just cut a lot of recipes in half, but perhaps there are more options for her out there. Does anyone have any tips or recipes I can share with her?

Why doesn't she freeze the extra and keep it to warm up when she has a late night. Alternatively she could ask her flatmates if they want to share her meal with her. They might like it if she cooked for them all.

I've suggested that, but with two other people, she claims to not have that much freezer space. I might suggest her talking about a meal plan with her roomates. I know that one needs to eat a special diet, but perhaps she can share meals with the other one.

well, sometimes the supermarket have a one person portion food both frozen, instant, fresh foods and self cooking. There a lot variety of them. It save a lot of time preparing it and enough for one person. Good luck !!!

She can find cool recipe and affordable ones from the internet. She should try to cook coz in my opinion women should have this kind of trait.

On sundays I enjoy making a full recipe, then portioning out the finished dinner into individual containers to re-heat and eat later in the week, when I'm feeling too tired to cook. I love to use the crockpot to do this!
