Cooking for one

Does anyone know any good cookbooks for websites related to cooking for one person? I love to cook but I hate eating leftovers for a week.

    1. i really like the Pleasures of Cooking for one by Judith Jones. i actually bought it for my grandmom one year and liked it so much i went out and bought myself a copy.

      1. Been using recipes from this one for 20 years:

        1. Thank you both so much! Cooking for one can be really boring.

          1. I know this sounds painfully obvious, but don't forget that most recipes can be halved or quartered, that butchers will cut you single-rib roasts, and that cake batter can be poured into muffin tins. Lots of little stuff like that.

            1. I've had this book for a while and haven't really given it the attention it deserves, but I'm going to recommend it anyway.

              I cook for myself the majority of the time, as my spousal equivalent and I eat different things. I've never had much trouble adjusting recipes to serve one instead of four or six.
