There's something highly satisfying about chucking all the ingredients into one pot and leaving them to meld into something full of flavour! Less washing-up too...
Chinese-style recipes are often perfect for one, because many of them are made at top speed. The trouble is that Westerners are often inclined to add a little extra cooking time, and the end result can be just that little bit overdone.

The amount of mince gives enough to also make Spaghetti with Mexican Sauce
The flavour of orange zest does something quite magical to the flavour of rhubarb, and this light, fluffy meringue pie is a perfect dessert for late spring. ‘Pile-it-high meringue', incidentally, applies only if you have extra egg whites to use up..
