One of the reasons I started A Solitary Feast was because I couldn’t find any blogs or websites that had small batch recipes for the kind of food I liked to eat. There were some sites out there for things like a romantic Valentine’s dinner for two with very expensive meals but what do I eat the other 364 days a year? On the other side, I found sites that offered such simple food it was almost insulting. I shouldn’t have to live on things like scrambled eggs and toast, unless I want to. I just wanted recipes for the kinds of food everybody else was eating but without all the left overs.
Although I have been adapting recipes for 1 or 2 for over 5 years, I keep looking for other people’s small batch recipes. Recently, I was researching a recipe and came across a blog called Chocolate Moosey. Intrigued by the name, I decided to see what the blog had to offer. My first click took me to a recipe for two. I clicked the recipe index and found more recipes for two. But wait! Can these recipes for two pass my tests. No processed ingredients? Nope, none. Can I easily find the ingredients! Yep, easily.
I tried two of the recipes, biscuits and gravy and the shaksuka. The recipes were complete and easy to follow. Best of all the recipes were very good. If you are interested in a different perspective on recipes for two and small batch recipes check out Chocolate Moosey.
