Cookbooks for One or Two

A Listmania! list by Kay Shepherd (California, USA)
The list author says: "We are a two-person household. I enjoy cooking but we do get tired of leftovers. (I don't mind enough left over for lunch the next day, but we don't really want to eat chili for a week!) So I've looked for and found some good books on cooking for a small household. Here they are!"

4.  Cooking for Two: 2010 by America's Test Kitchen
