Dinner and Dessert Recipes Just For Two

Dinner and Dessert Recipes Just For Two

Do you often find yourself cooking only for two people or maybe even for yourself rather than an army? Perhaps you are in a relationship without kids. Maybe you do have kids but they grew up and moved out of the house. Or maybe there are certain evenings during the week where everyone isn’t home together for dinner. I know how hard it is to scale down recipes without getting bored of the same ones over and over. That’s why I made this page dedicated to recipes for two and small batch recipes. Even though I cook for one person (myself), I often make two serving meals so I can have leftovers to take for lunch or give myself a break later in the week.
