A Little Bit About Me

Welcome to Cynthia Eats! I have been a foodie since, well, forever, having garnered an intense appreciation of all things food from my father.

As a young girl, I would pour through cookbooks to create dishes and desserts for my parents and brothers. My favorite was a community cookbook distributed by our local church.

When I got married, I found a new “best ever” cookbook by Betty Crocker.  In both I appreciated the basic ingredients (all of which I could most likely find in my kitchen already) and the consistently tasty results.

Who’s Hungry?

I have always enjoyed creating food for my family, both as a young girl and as a married woman with children of my own.

But time marches on and the time came that I found myself in the position of having to cook only for me. Eventually, the thought of preparing meals for one started to become a chore.

As I began to speaking to other single people, I found a similar train of thought. It’s hard to create a meal for one. All that shopping. And prep. And dishes. Three times a day. Every. Single. Day.

Grabbing something at the drive thru or convenience store on the way home seems easier, right? Or throw a frozen dinner in the microwave. Bar food with a few friends, maybe?

So Why Am I Here, Exactly?

Because I very much enjoy good food, that way of life was not sustainable for me. I began to look into different ways to create fresh, healthy, whole food meals that are quick and easy to make and/or can be prepared in larger portions to freeze for effortless “Grab and Go” meals.

And then I thought…why not start an online community where we can all come together to share our thoughts and ideas (and recipes!!) about this? Because although my friends are quick to call me a know-it-all, I’m pretty sure that’s not the case! 😉

Please join me in endeavoring to get back to healthier and more enjoyable eating habits. Feel free to comment on my posts or email me a great recipe or idea that I can share with everyone. And maybe the delivery guy can take the night off.

I’m looking forward to meeting you!

  4. Hi Cynthia

    What a great idea to have a blog such as this!

    There are so many people cooking for one! Although I am still at the fortunate stage to be cooking for two of my children. 

    My daughter is at university and has a room on her own and is really finding it hard and boring to think of healthy balanced meals daily.  She does not want to put on weight and she values good nutrition for her health and immunity but finds it time consuming to cook daily.

    I am interested to keep an eye out on all your ideas.

    Best wishes

    1. How exciting for your daughter to be embarking on this new adventure in her life!  I hope some of my recipes will help her find her groove in the kitchen.  Best of luck!

  5. Hi Cynthia, I have been reading and enjoying your site for quite a long time now. But I hadn’t come here yet. Thank you for sharing your passion for cooking with all of us. I also have wonderful memories of my childhood of my dad smiling back at me while we tried to cook together. I learned a lot with him. He loved cooking too.

    1. My dad was also Head Chef in our home when we were growing up.  I’ll always be grateful for all that I learned from him!

  6. Hi Cynthia,

    Love “A Little About Me”  I can surely understand cooking for one; my children are grown and have families of their own to feed. When they initially moved out of the house, I would call in my order and pick it up from my favorite restaurant.  Soon, I started missing preparing meals, so I decided to go back to preparing meals just in small quantities {enough for two days}.  I find it more satisfying and healthier than eating out every day. I took a look at your recipes and noticed they are simple and can be prepared in 30 minutes or less.  I’m definitely going to whip up the Pork chops with apple butter and onion.

    Great about Cynthia Eats!

    1. It sounds like we are kindred spirits, Karen!  Thank you for your kind comments and I hope you enjoy the recipes.  Please let me know which ones you like best!
