Cooking for one can be tricky, and you can often end up with a feast for a family of six in the oven, breaking the bank at the same time! So we’ve done our research and found some super easy, purse friendly, quick, meal ideas for one for you to whip up…in the microwave! You’ll be impressed for sure…cheesecake in the microwave?!
