These recipes are specially selected to work for the person who has limited cooking equipment, limited space, limited ingredients to cook with, and limited cooking skill - or, who has an abundance of those things, but little time.
Who might fit this description?
1. Young adults starting college life in a dorm that permits minimal cooking.
2. Military adults living in a barracks that permits minimal cooking.
3. Traveling adults of any age who need to cook in an efficiency kitchen or hotel on vacation or on a business trip.
4. Busy families who are short on time.
Last time we were travelling, we had an apartment kitchen with limited equipment. And, I didn't want to stock a kitchen with my normal fifty or so spices for a short stay. I needed ingredients that could be made in a simple pot, and had a short list of ingredients to buy & store.
These recipes are my standbys for when I have one pot to cook in or a simple appliance like a Microwave or Slow Cooker, limited time, and a limited pantry.
