Welcome to my page!


I enjoy cooking but hate cooking for one - most recipes seem to be set up for families. If you have any good recipes for one (or two if leftovers will freeze) please feel free to submit it.


I'll be posting weight loss recipes for one frequently on my page and at some stage I'm going to photograph them so that you can see the lovely low-fat food  Innocent

Hello my sister dear - just saw your poem on the comp page - fantastic!
I usually leave a page warming gift of a packet of caramel TimTams, but seeing as you are dieting... here is a bowl of fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Yum.

Hi, Karen and Welcome! I was going to leave a couple of boxes of Frango Mints in various flavors - but, Rose says you're dieting. So-o-o, since she is leaving you fresh fruits, I'll just leave some pink and yellow tulips, as we're finally enjoying spring here. By the way, the recipe sounds yummy - and low cal. Thanks!

Karen, Looks like you have lots of fruit - better get some one-person recipes for fruit going! Of course, a good fruit salad is hard to beat.

So nice when the 'family' drops in for a visit. Just extended my thanks to Rose for the Pompeii info and I'll pass along my thanks to you as well, Karen. We've definitely put it on our list and are really looking forward to it! Cheers and have a great weekend.

Karen: I think keeping things the same for now, as much as possible, is the best thing to do. If you've never sent flowers to him on his birthday, don't do it now. Normality is a treasure.

But don't forget the physical side. You didn't say anything about his living circumstances, and More...

Karen I think your friend would want you to treat him the same as you usually do. I have had cancer myself and the last thing you want or need at this time is to be treated like a victim or treated as if you are about to die... even if it is a possibility. Good luck and I hope your friend has a More...

Karen, I agree, keep it normal. If it was not cancer but some other illness you were sending a card to him for, what would you send? the only thing might concern me, is will others see the card, people who do not know his taste in humor, and be offended.

Karen: Not to change the subject, but you asked about meals for one. On 25 April 06, I posted a not-bad (ahem) lasagna recipe on page 5 of the Easy comments. It makes nine decent portions, which freeze very well individually, and provide a lot of quick, easy meals later. I also play a little game More...

karen - go with your gut feeling! send him the joke, but at the end tell him how worried sick you are about him, and is there anything you can do. often people tread on eggshells with people with cancer, but the more normally you can treat them the easier it is for them to deal with the abnormal!

Karen, I am new to this posting. a new member. The only reason I signed up is to answer your question about your friend with cancer. My wife passed away last fall and I can tell you she enjoyed any and all types of cards and humor. she looked forward to getting and hearing from everyone.

As one who has undergone chemo, a book of jokes or cartoons (e.g. Farside, Dilbert) would be appreciated to have a laugh as you have your treatment. I found that cooking food put me off but I could eat other peoples' cooking ok. I am 4 years away from my op. (breast cancer) and feel More...

Karen,I'm so terribly sorry for both you and your friend. You have some marvellous friends here at Sudokuland, all with sage advice. It is most heartening to see the response you have had. Try to stay positive, that's the creed I try to live by. If you need anything else from this combined brains trust, you only need to ask.
07/Jun/07 5:27 PM

Karen, What wonderful advice you have received. I've and some of my family have been through cancer treatment and as said previously normality is something you yearn for but as everything becomes more challenging a good laugh can bring some much needed relief. Flowers and sympathy made More...

Karen, on your exam. Hope you do great (or did great). With all the studying yu must have done, you should be well prepared and do a super job on it. Celebrate after you get done, and then again when you get the great news that you passed with flying colors.

Hey Karen, just dropped in very quickly to say "ello" and to ask a very big favour. Would you mind giving little Veronica a Big Cuddle and Kiss from MOI. For her Birthday Today, I did ask Rose, but think she might be giving More...

Karen! Have just read some of the previous comments on your page & figured out for the first time that you are Rose's sister! Goah, I catch on slowly! Also, just discovered recently that Kate from Sydney & Maureen from Dubbo are sisters, too. Hope you have a great day celebrating your birthday & a very good year ahead.

Hello Karen - to you! I hope you have a great day!

I am sorry I have no small recipes! I have raised 5 children and I am having problems "cooking down." There is always enough at our house for "one more!"
