Since being single, one of the biggest challenges I've faced is cooking for one. It's definitely changed the way I cook and shop for food. I feel like I am just now - over a year later - getting the hang of it.
I've come to really love meals that come together quickly and can be made as one serving just as easily as two or four servings. This flatbread is just that. Cooking just for you? Make one. Cooking for more? No problem! Make as many as you need with barely anymore effort.
Asparagus, zucchini and spinach are some of my absolute favorite vegetables. Given the opportunity I would eat them with every meal! Luckily, they pair very well together. One of the easiest ways to eat them all at once is to throw them into a pasta. Make it a little spicy, a little acidic, and a little salty and you've got the perfect spring greens pasta.
I am so lucky to have a boyfriend that enjoys good food as much as I do. We are both talented in the kitchen and we both have our specialties that only that person makes because it comes out best that way. Whenever we want something like seared salmon, for example, I am the go-to cook that night. But chili on the other hand...that's Anthony's turf.
It's hard to imagine fries being anything but potato. Though potatoes are perfect for being a fry, I think half the reason they are so addicting is because of their easy finger food nature and finger licking saltiness. But lets face it - all that grease and starch is doing nothing for my hips and already large behind.
Enter zucchini fries! They are easy to make and much nicer to my mid-region. They are delightful as a snack or as a side dish (I had mine aside homemade bean burgers!). I spike up the addicting factor with romano cheese and dried dill. Yum.
I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
