A friend told me about a new person he'd invited over for dinner later that night. Since my friend is the world’s worst cook and hates cookbooks (too complicated and the recipes are never broken down for single serving meals) the task fell to me to help. My suggestions included everything from a roasted chicken to a stir fry. I also told him he could, a) have me prepare the meal for him, b) do take out c) starve, d) I could help him come up with a few simple recipes he could make himself in 30 minutes or less. While putting together his menu he asked me a question. ”Have you ever thought of writing a cookbook”? To which I replied, ‘if I did, it would be specifically for single people.’ And as they say “necessity is the mother of invention”. The Single Person’s Cookbook is written for anyone without a wife/husband/children or significant other to cook for. Or for anyone needing to impress a date or serve a special someone a great meal because you care. In short, it is for anyone who wants a simple, fast, elegant, low fat, (and yes, romantic) home cooked meal in minutes. Each chapter will include approximately 5-10 recipes a- piece and tips to help make the cooking process easier and more enjoyable. Although, I have included measurements for these recipes as a frame of reference, I’d like to note that I rarely ever measure anything...ever. In creating a simple meal, I find that using the six senses (instinct being the sixth) are far more important and reliable than a measuring cup. As a single man myself over 40, I'm often aware of the irony of life's little lessons (The blind date that turns out to be your ex-lover’s, ex lover). This book will not only be informative from a culinary standpoint but also offers funny little observations about getting through life as a single person of a certain age. (Think “Sex in the City” meets 30 Minute Meals from a gay man’s point of view.) The book also offers tips on fitness (I went from 232 lbs. to 165lbs in about a year) as well as ways to save money on your food bill. Upcoming books in” The Single Person’s Cookbook” series include “Cooking from your Garden” and “Southern Cooking”.

Introduction 

Did you know that domestic science classes for women in the late 19th century and the early 20th century focused solely on how to make good menus? A woman with plenty of access to lots of money could easily call her cook, and give her a list of the items which had to be made for lunch and dinner and served to the family. 

A budget is always a matter of concern for a large number of us 
But a majority of her sisters who had to do their own cooking had to make the menus, taking into account the things they had at hand. So naturally, they would not be bothered much about 5 course dinners or lunches. 

Making a good menu is quite complicated, as well as difficult. Unless you have an aptitude for planning, you may find this job rather cumbersome and tiring. Especially when you are planning a meal on a limited budget and have just a limited number of items with which you need to feed your family or lots of unexpected guests. 

If you do not have the aptitude for planning, you may struggle as best as you can with considerations of quantity, taste, costs, labor, blends, and number of dishes to be served, and hope that time and practices going to make this job easier.

Introduction 

A couple of months ago I wrote a natural health series book on cooking with wheat berries. Here is an introduction to one of the basic natural ingredients which is used extensively in cooking, but we overlook it so often, because we are so used to it. 

Just imagine a life without bread, pastries, cakes, doughnuts, waffles, muffins, griddle cakes and other such delicious items. If we enjoy baking, the first ingredient which we are going to collect in our recipe list is going to be flour. 

Nobody knows when cereals and grasses began to be used as flour, by mankind. Until then, he used to make his bread by making up a pounded paste of roots, bark and seeds, flattening it, and then cooking it on hot stones. As his tastes began to grow more and more sophisticated he found out that it was very easy to grow and then harvest cereals, and then grind them into a powder. This is the powder, which we hold so precious and, which we call Flour. 

Many of the ingredients that we see now in baking recipes call for all-purpose flour. This is made from hard spring wheat. It is high in protein and it is normally used to replace highly refined pastry flour 

Pastry flour is made from soft wheat and it gives a lighter texture to fragile baked products like small cakes, biscuits and pastries. 

A Baker normally chooses the all-purpose flour for yeast dough, sauce thickening and strudels. In the same manner, cake flour is also a different type of flour. It is a soft wheat flour and is of very fine grain. It is velvety soft, when you handle it. It is perfectly white. However its protein value is very low. 

But millenniums ago, people did not know much about all-purpose flours. They just knew that they could use buckwheat, rice, soybean, rye, potato, split peas, lentils, maize and cornmeal as the basis of a large number of flours. So, depending on the place where you live, you are going to get either refined white flour or whole wheat flour.
