The Single Girls Recipe Roundup

I've been living alone for awhile now, and according to any government document, that makes me "single". I also hate cooking. Those are two new facts you're learning about me today! 

Over the years I've tried to learn how to cook (my mother would disagree) but the amount of recipes that are available for a single serving are difficult to find. Unless I want to be eating leftovers all week every week, I need to start experimenting a little with what I make.

I've collected some recipes that I typically turn to when cooking for just myself. These recipes can be easily paired down for a single serving. All the recipes are based around 3 main ingredients: Eggs, Spaghetti Squash, and Chicken

Egg Recipes

Egg Recipes

Eggs are SUPER CHEAP! When trying to stick to a budget this is so helpful. They aren't just a breakfast food either. Most of these recipes listed below I actually use for dinner. Eggs and Egg Whites are a must in my kitchen. Anytime I'm in a rush I crack some eggs in a pan, add whatever I have left in my fridge at the time and BAM - I have a beautiful omelette. 

Spaghetti Squash

To my surprise, I actually like Spaghetti Squash. I didn't think it was possible, but my friend Laura was right, it tastes pretty good. It's also really simple to make. Spaghetti Squash is something that I make almost every week and then I freeze it in individual mason jars for a quick meal anytime. I don't like to freeze most foods because they never taste the same again, but since you're adding more seasonings and sauces to Spaghetti Squash after you take it out of the freezer, it makes a huge difference!

If you're super new to Spaghetti Squash and are a little intimidated by it (hey, I totally was) - check out this post that is FULL of everything you need to know. 

Rotisserie Chicken

Rotisserie Chicken recipes

Rotisserie Chicken is the Holy Grail for lazy girl (me) dinners! You can do so many things with Rotisserie Chicken. You don't even have to cook the damn thing, you can just buy it from your grocery store already cooked - halleluiah!! If I'm having a hectic week I can always just add some Rotisserie Chicken to my mason jar salad.
