  1. What a terrific Cooking web site you have here.  Your selection of recipes has me feeling hungry but also encouraging me to think creatively as to what to cook for lunch or dinner today. Pasta has a reputation for being quite calorie intense and so the fact that you have included a calorie counter in the recipe is particularly welcome as we have eaten far too much being stuck in quarantine! Your site feels professional.  I like how you have a wide selection of recipes and some great advice in your reviews. Do you have any suggestions for cooking equipment for the outdoors, perhaps when you are on the road, or hiking or trekking? I have bookmarked your site, to return for those terrific recipes you have highlighted.

    1. Unfortunately, I haven’t done anything about outdoor hiking or trekking cooking equipment.  Let me do some research and I’ll put together an article.  Thank you for the tip and thank you for your comments!!

    1. It can be difficult to break down recipes smaller sizes or for just one portion.  I’m glad I could help.  Please check in and let me know how you liked it!
