"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." - Michael Jordan

I second that motion. I have to search for recipes that make 1 or 2 servings. I like to enjoy my food and I don't want to have to eat the same thing day after day so theres no waste. Fortunatley I came across Hungry Girl cookbooks and that has been the bulk of my menu planning. I would like to see this website have at least a few recipes for singles. It would be nice to have some variety.

Today i downloaded the sparkpeople printable "Dinners on a Dime" cookbook and was once again dismayed that I seem to not be a part of the target audience, and I wondered:
Would Sparkpeople be willing to target a different demographic for their recipes and budgeting?
I know I cannot be the only mid-twenties and single person on this site that wants affordable recipes that don't require me to freeze 90% of the end result (because frankly, with my half-sized tiny apartment refrigerator, that freezer is already pretty full of fish steaks, fruit for smoothies, and ice cube trays). It is frustrating to have to quarter EVERY recipe and recalculate the cost for EVERY time i try to make something at home. It is discouraging in such a way that makes me not bother cooking because recipes are all targeted at people that AREN'T ME (you know--people with a husband and two kids). Having struggled for so long to even enjoy food at all, and not having a natural enjoyment of cooking, it severely stunts my best efforts to make myself healthy meals. Here is what I would like to see:
A recipe book where ALL of the recipes included are for 1-2 servings TOTAL. With a cost breakdown or little suggestions for where I can save money.
