I have the same dilemma. What I'm teaching myself to do is halve or even quarter recipes, because while I can freeze them, it's never the same. So, I look at recipes now with how I'm going to adjust it for 2-3 servings. However, I'm finding that even a halved recipe for four sometimes yields more.
Other ideas that work for meals: rice and beans, pasta (make the sauce and freeze it, which for some reason I don't mind), then just cook the right amount of pasta. I find that a lot of meats will go well with one little pan fried potato (or prepared any other way). In short, I'm learning to take individual items (i.e. chicken sausage and a potato and a veggie) and make a meal rather than always using a specific recipe.
I hope this helps.

I live alone and am finding it hard to cook for 1 person. I have been making recipes that serve 4-6 then dividing them into single serving and freezing them. Would really like smaller size recipes. I do a lot of frozen dinners. Anyone have any good ideas or smaller portion recipes they can share?
