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.

"I use the 2010 edition more than the 2009, but both editions are very good. One nice feature: if they only call for 1/2 a red pepper someplace, they usually have another 'use it up' recipe for the other half in there somewhere so you don't waste food."
"I got this for my son as he is now in his own home and doesn't love to cook. (I also got a copy for myself.) This one is interesting because it was written by a mom and (grown) son team and mom gives a lot of hints. Many of the recipes here are for one or two."
