CARLAMOOSE'S MENTOR PROFILE
Hi, I'm carlamoose.
I'm a mentor in Cooking for One
I'm from Pittsburgh
My Cooking for One Corner
Why I want to be mentor in this category:
I know plenty of people who live alone and rely on boxed products. You can make homemade meals just for yourself!
What inspires me in this category:
People often ask how I cook "good" meals for myself, so I want to share my knowledge and experience with others.
I am a college student who often cooks for herself. Usually I cut recipes down to two servings, so you have some leftovers for when you are too busy to cook.
Biggest Lesson Learned:
The freezer is your friend. Even if you don't cut a recipe, you can usually freeze leftovers for later, especially soups and spaghetti sauce.
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
I own plenty of cookbooks, so it's hard to list which ones have helped me. http://recipezaar.com is a great website because you can find recipes by ingredient.
Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
I've been cooking for myself for two years.
- Freeze leftovers whenever possible.
