Cookbooks For One

A little bit about me- I’m a 33-year-old female who lives in a bachelor apartment; included in that is a full kitchen. However, this kitchen does not have a lot of counter space; as a result, the oven often gets used as counter space. This means that I like cooking things that don’t take a lot of work. That made me think that a lot of other people feel that way too, so I decided to look up some cookbooks that might help in a situation like that.
