50 Recipes for EVERYTHING You'll Ever Want to Make. Because smaller families shouldn't have to rely on recipes built for four or six, America's Test Kitchen has reengineered 650 of our best recipes to serve just two. Over the years we've discovered that scaling down a recipe isn't as simple as cutting the ingredients in half—cooking times, temperatures, and equipment need to be adapted as well. This comprehensive cookbook takes the guesswork out of cooking for two so you can be sure that anything you want to make—from Classic Beef Stew to Lasagna to a mini batch of Fudgy Brownies or a Fluffy Yellow Layer Cake—will come out right (and perfectly proportioned) every time. We'll also give you options when you're short on time. 150 recipes, including Chicken Saltimbocca and Pan-Seared Rib-Eye Steaks with Sweet-Tart Red Wine Sauce, can be on the table in 30 minutes or less. For those times when you want healthier fare, we've provided more than 100 recipes labeled "Light" such as Provencal Vegetable Soup and Poached Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit, each with nutritional information listed in an easy-to-read chart in the back of the book. And we include chapters on for-two slow cooking, grilling, and baking pies, quick breads, cakes, and cookies. A 25-page manual teaches the basics of cooking for two, including clever shopping strategies to reduce waste, smart storage tricks help extend freshness of key ingredients, and our picks for the most useful kitchen equipment for any two-person household.
The only comprehensive cookbook specially designed for a 2-person household--with more than 650 foolproof recipes scaled down for two. From breakfast to dinner, sides to desserts, plus slow cooking, vegetarian, and grilling--we include a wide range of cuisines. A perfect gift for newlyweds, small families, or empty nesters.

Tea for two. That's what it's all about, right? So how come every recipe you pick up says "serves 4 to 6"? Or more! What do you do when you want macaroni and cheese, but don't want to be reheating it for three nights? Or a couple of cookies, but don't want to be tempted by two dozen sitting on the counter all week? Creative cookbook authors and cooks Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough have all the answers in Cooking for Two. Brimming with 120 smaller-serving, big-taste recipes,Cooking for Two offers cooks familiar favorites such as PastaBolognese, Chicken Pot Pie, and Mushroom Barley Soup, as well as new dishes for today's tastes like Pork Satay Salad and Snapper Fillets SautÉed with Orange and Pecans. Simply cutting down larger recipes leads to wasted ingredients. But Bruce and Mark have developed each recipe so you buy only what you need, and use all of what you buy. Instead of opening a can of vegetable stock only to use three tablespoons, use the liquid the dried mushrooms have soaked in. If an onion is too large for a recipe, chop a shallot instead. The dessert chapters are filled with cookies, puddings, and cakes, all designed for two servings. Small-batch baking requires strict attention to detail. A regular egg can be too big for a small batch of six cookies, so they suggest quail eggs or the easy-to-find pasteurized egg substitutes, which you can measure out in tablespoons. Truly a cookbook for everyday use, each recipe is labeled as quick (ready in minutes with minimal cooking), moderate (requires a bit more preparation or cooking), or leisurely (perfect for quiet celebrations or weekend meals) to help you decide which dish best fits into your day. With ingredient and equipment guides, as well as tips on how to stock your pantry to avoid those there's-nothing-in-the-house-so-let's-go-out moments, Cooking for Two will surely become the cookbook you reach for every night of the week. It's just two perfect.
More than two hundred creative, low-fat recipes for smaller households include such favorites as glazed pork chops, fried green tomatoes, country gravy, strawberry shortcake, and creamy chocolate pudding

The only one-pot cookbook you'll ever need! Simplify dinner and eat well with hundreds of meals that take full advantage of your favorite pans. Join the one-pot movement with The Complete One Pot Cookbook. From sheet-pan suppers to no-boil pastas, millions of home cooks want the ease of hands-off meals made using a single vessel. These flavorful recipes represent years of the test kitchen's best strategies for successful single-pan cooking, from staggering cooking times so everything finishes at once to developing an arsenal of no-cook sauces and sides. We flip the lid on several one-pot cooking assumptions; first, that it's always slow. Half of the 400+ recipes can be made in 45 minutes or less. Next, that the recipes serve an army: We paid attention to smaller family sizes by adding scaled-down variations serving two throughout the book. And we made some of the all-time best recipes more flexible with choose-your-own pan options such as Classic Chicken Soup that can be made in a Dutch oven, slow cooker, or pressure cooker. Finally, we realized that decluttering dinner didn't stop with using just one pot but also meant limiting the number of bowls. Today's one-pot recipes are more varied than ever. Skip takeout with Sheet Pan Pizza. Make date-night Classic Arroz Con Pollo for Two in a saucepan. Cook for a crowd using a roasting-pan "Walk-Away" Roast Chicken with Potatoes. Set and forget Slow Cooker Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Raisin-Almond Couscous, or get dinner on the table fast using an Instant Pot to make Cod with Warm Tabbouleh Salad. This assortment includes more than just dinner. Simplify breakfast with Sheet Pan Breakfast Sandwiches, or make one-bowl (or no-bowl!) Peach Cobbler or Classic Bread Pudding in your Dutch oven.
