The Single Life

Those of you who know me even just a little bit are likely aware that I have a big sweet tooth. I’ve always liked to bake solely because I love the aftermath of baking — eating dessert. This is even listed on my dating profiles, in hopes that I will be asked on a dessert date instead of out for dinner or drinks.

I was recently browsing Pinterest for “eggless cookie dough recipes for one.” This is the definition of being single.

Actually, here is the real definition:

Single (adj): Someone without a significant other.

Activities for singles often involve eating amazing desserts alone while watching reruns of The Office on Netflix.

Anyway, the first thing that popped up when I typed in “eggless cookie dough recipes for one” was an eggless cookie dough recipe for two. Way to rub it in, Pinterest. I thought I could trust you.

I quickly realized Pinterest had actually given me a blessing in disguise. Not only did I stumble upon a kind of amazing food blog, but I also realized that I could make a recipe for two… Then eat both servings myself! Cookie dough for two is twice the amount of dessert, thus twice the amount of happiness. It’s pretty simple math.

So that’s exactly what I did. I didn’t need to keep looking at the silly recipes for one — those were for amateurs. My life is forever changed, and I will always be a “dessert for 2” kind of gal.

Today’s lesson: Don’t be one of the people who looks at Valentine’s day as being “Singles Awareness Day” or oversize desserts as a rude reminder of your lack of a SO… Step up to the plate and enjoy that treat all on your own! Desserts weren’t meant to be shared anyway.
