1-2 Simple Cooking

when we were in NYC we found it pretty easy to eat out all the time because there was so much variety, and you could eat quite cheaply on the go if you needed to (which was amazing for lazy people like us). but it made me think about when we were going to go back home, and how we’d have to get back into the routine of cooking for ourselves, and doing it without wasting – plus on a budget. cooking for 2 can produce a lot of waste if you’re not clever about it, and you have to be good about using your leftovers or re-using ingredients. i always find myself in the supermarket after work just staring at the food aisles thinking, what on earth can i cook tonight?

so when i found 1-2 Simple cooking by friends Joy and Tiffany i subscribed right away. not only do their recipes truly look simple, healthy and delicious, but they have also categorised them into handy sections like “fast food”, gluten-free (for all of us trying to avoid the carbs…), vegetarian, vegan etc etc. keep your eye on these two.

1-2 Simple Cooking wants to revolutionize the way singles and couples cook and eat at home. We understand the challenges that come along with cooking for one or one other person – food waste, meal monotony, the dreaded clean up! It’s difficult as it is to learn how to cook, and even harder to maintain on a daily basis. That’s why we’re here - to teach you basic tips, simple recipes, and techniques to simplify your life and empower you to become the home chef you’ve always wanted to be. Cooking should never be fussy and food should always be fun and approachable.

5 ingredients, 10 minutes

i’ve already admitted to being a lazy cook. i resort to avocado or eggs on toast way more than i should (that goes for breakfast, lunch, dinner… snacks) and sometimes a can of chick peas or a tub of hummus is my only salvation. the problem is that i like fast food – as in, quick to make… not the unhealthy variety. ok i love pizza, who doesn’t?
