Yes. This was a gift for my housemate and domestic partner. She was looking for “Cookbooks for Two” because…well, there are two of us and she does the cooking. Duh. I’ve had some of the meals from this book and THEY ARE GOOD! Little or no waste. Nicely seasoned (neither bland or overdone) hard to do when cooking for only two portions. I highly recommend this book. When cooking for two there is always the risk of either too much or not enough. Not here; the directions make two servings of exactly the right amount. And they taste darn good!
Now that my husband and I are retired and empty nesters these recipes aree perfect sizes so you don’t have mounds of left overs. They are quick and easy and don’t have lots of ingredients that can really drive up the food budget. They are lower fat and considerate of weight and salt restrictions.
We bought this for our son who is setting up his first independent home, but after looking through it, bought another copy to use ourselves. Don’t be put off by the AARP in the title- it has great recipes and advice for young people too. The recipes are very well written, with the steps in order and none of the “cookbook style” writing which can bury important steps in the text where they can be missed. The dishes are good, and some techniques are very clever- there’s a dessert cake recipe that uses the cake pan to mix up the batter, so the cleanup is easier.
