GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) After someone loses a spouse or family member, everything changes, including something you might not think about, mealtimes. A person who is used to cooking for several people or isn’t used to cooking at all can struggle during this time. Now Hospice of Michigan is unveiling its cookbook, “A Meal for Me,” during a cooking class teaching simple strategies when cooking for one, on Saturday, August 23.
The “A Meal for Me” cookbook, which was developed using a collection of recipes from HOM’s extended friends and family network provides single serving recipes and helps readers develop skills in preparing simple, healthy and flavorful meals for themselves – without spending hours in the kitchen.
The cookbook also offers measure and temperature conversion information as well as ideas on how to use larger portions of meat and cans of soup or vegetables with different recipes during the week.
To help introduce the cooking for one concept, HOM and Blandford Nature Center will host an open house style event from 4:30-7 p.m. at Blandford Farms, 3143 Milo St. NW. Guest will be invited to participate in many activities, including cooking demonstrations, food sampling and farm tours.
While attendance is free, registration is requested. Contact at 616-356-5258 to register or for more information.
The “A Meal for Me” cookbook will be available online at hom.org. Those who attend the cooking class will have an opportunity to preview the cookbook and learn how to obtain a free copy.
