Plate For One


The Solo Cook's Kitchen

Welcome to a community of solo cooks looking to create scrumptious meals that delight the senses while drastically reducing food waste.

Imagine For a Moment...

You walk into the grocery store with a crystal clear plan. You glide through the aisles with a smile on your face and a bounce in your step as you pull items from the shelves, thinking of all of the yummy concoctions you will make.

When you get home you whip up a quick meal. You aren’t even worried about that leftover onion and chunk of butternut squash because you know that you have a recipe in your arsenal that will use those ingredients up.

But Let's Be Honest...

Cooking For One Kind of Sucks.

  • You have to figure out how to shop on a smaller scale than you would for a family.
  • Most recipes serve four to six people, and you either have to make it as is and eat the same meal for days and days,


  • Break the recipe down to one serving, which gets complicated when the original recipe call for one egg.
  • And then there are the leftover ingredients. So. Many. Leftover ingredients.
And trying to figure out what to do with those leftover ingredients can be a pain.

You try to find recipes for them, but those just introduce more and more leftovers, or they only use one piece and not the rest.

And you still have to dig through the recipes that serve four to six, leaving you in the same dilemma as before; dividing recipes, or eating the same thing every day, for days on end. 

It’s stressful. 

And cooking for one should not be stressful.

It should be fun!

I mean, you can make what you want when you want it!

So let's do this, shall we?

Hi, I’m Dee! And I’ve spent the past ten years experimenting in the kitchen to find a way of cooking that works for the solo cook. While I am not a professional chef, I am a home cook who is passionate about creating delicious meals that are a delight to eat and nourishing to the body.


What This Subscription Includes

4-5 Exclusive Recipes Every Month

Every month, you will receive four or five exclusive recipes that make either one or two servings. The recipes use similar ingredients to reduce leftovers but are varied enough so you won’t get bored.


This is where you’ll see a behind-the-scenes look at what’s going on in my kitchen and veggie garden, as well as bonus recipes, cooking tips, and more that are sent out three to four times a month. 

E-magazine with recipes

Once a month, you will receive a pdf of the recipes so that you can always have them with you. The magazine will also include the recipes from the blog and newsletter, so you’ll have a nice variety to choose from.

Balsamic Blueberry, Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

I mentioned earlier that cooking for one kind of sucks,

But it doesn't have to!

Think about it, as a solo cook you have complete creative control in your kitchen. Your taste buds and cravings will always have the final say so!

And that is so, so, freeing to know.

And whether or not you decide to join me, I hope you know that you are worth the time it takes to make yourself an incredibly yummy meal. Whether it is simple or complex, a tuna salad sandwich or a cheesy hot dish of gourmet mac and cheese.


What type of recipes will be included in the membership ?

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner that are made as one to two servings. There will also be baked goods, desserts, and snack recipes made in smaller portions. For instance, smaller loaves of bread or six biscuits instead of a dozen.

I don't always have the time (or energy) to cook every day. Can I make larger portions of these recipes?

Absolutely! Most, if not all of the recipes can be scaled up.

How are payments processed?

I use Memberful to manage the memberships and they work with Stripe to process payments. This means that I will not handle any of your credit card information.
