Late To The Party!

My name is Cricket, and I'm thrilled to be here.

I am a bit intimidated by all of the culinary talents in this community, so it has taken me a bit to introduce myself.

For those who don't already know me, I have a deep passion for the great outdoors, especially camping. In the past, I cooked daily for my family of six using simple, old-fashioned recipes that I mostly learned from my grandmother. My go-to meals were classic comfort foods like pot roast, stew, and hamburger hotdish. Now that my kids are grown and out on their own, it's just me. I've realized that I'm not a big fan of cooking unless it's for camping trips. Cooking over a campfire, surrounded by nature, brings me joy.

I'm excited to be here and to learn from all of you. I'm especially interested in exploring cooking for one, with a focus on the Keto lifestyle. I'm here to listen, learn, and share my own experiences along the way. Thanks for having me!

Hey Cricket!

I feel your pain. I'm cooking for 3, one of which expects me to cook every night but refuses to eat leftovers. What's even worse is I'm used to cooking for hordes so I've had to learn to scale back the volume of what I'm making.

If you find a recipe that says it makes 4 serving, simply divide the amount of each ingredient by 4 to give you how much to use for 1. If you get a weird amount, particularly with herbs and spices, simply make 2 servings and have leftovers or freeze the meal for another day. :)

Glad you're here!
