This recipe book has really broadened and rejuvenated our (senior) home meals. The best features are:
* listing of all items needed AND they are all COMMONLY found in our local stores;
* simple, step-by-step directions;
* not too long nor hard to prepare; and
* celicious dinners and lunches.
We expected to receive a good book from this publisher but got a really great book!

I own the '09, '10 and '11 editions and I can't wait for next year's. Each one has a wide variety of recipes that you never thought could be scaled down for two. I'm thrilled to be able to make the small amounts of hummus and caramel dip from this cookbook. Past editions have lemon curd, mango chutney, and ranch dressing among other things. The new vegetarian section is lovely and I would welcome more of those dishes (hint: a cheese enchilada recipe!). However, I felt cheated on the dessert section; they've included savory baked goods which is fine but I was hoping for more cakes and perhaps a cinnamon buns recipe. Oh and if they include more pear desserts in the future I'm going to scream! I also don't think they should include a "dinner off the grill" section on every edition.

Anyways, here are the recipes I've made so far from this book: black bean burgers, chocolate pots de crème (great), tiramisú, eggplant casserole, white spinach lasagna (note: I had to read the instructions more than twice on this one and then they expect you to bake the lasagnas in mini loaf pans. I didn't feel like cutting up all the noodles to fit the pans so I baked it on a regular loaf pan instead and it came out just fine. It feeds more than 2 unless you're really hungry), zucchini/tomato/ricotta tarts (great), orecchiette with broccoli rabe and beans, pan-roasted chickpeas with garlic/parsley paired with tomato/scallion/lemon couscous. You'll be in for a treat every time you try a recipe from this cookbook!

If you love to cook, but don't have a big family or group to cook for this is a fantastic book. The recipe's are delicious and manageable for two people. I found the recipe's are less involved than the regular America's Test Kitchen steps, which is great to have good quality food for 2 that doesn't take as long. It is a great idea for a date night.

We love this book! Most recipes actually make enough for three meals, which is fine; we have two for dinner, and I take the leftovers for lunch a day or two later. We're saving so much money by not throwing away food, and we're losing weight by not overeating!

As a newly retired wife, I wanted to find cookbooks that didn't require that we have guests over every night, or have to eat leftovers all week. I found the perfect book here. I love reading the stories about how they tested different ingredients and such before finding just the right recipe. The end result quantities are just a little more than the two of us can eat in one meal, but perfect to put away for one leftover lunch, or if we have a friend to dinner.

I have tried a few of the recipes and so far they have been perfect! I cannot believe how great the tastes have been, and the food actually looks like the picture. There are not a lot of finish-product pictures, but of those that I have tried, the pictures matched. There are pictures of helpful hints and tips that are valuable, even to an old-timer like myself.

The ingredients seem to be readily available at my local market, and I am even trying a few new items that I have never cooked before. Tonight I made the White Spinach Lasagna that was, well...Perfect! My husband ate every single bite and said, "mmmmm" many times during the meal. The Classic Chicken Pot Pie was a hit last night too. This is now my favorite cookbook of all of the ones filling my bookshelf.

Somewhat disappointed as I was expecting America's Test Kitchen to supply unique recipes for two; it was actually recipes from their yearly 2011 cookbook cut down. It is partially my fault as I did not zoom in on the cover before purchasing the book. I highly recommend buying from Amazon because if you buy from the Test Kitchen you get enrolled into their automatic book club.

My girlfriend and I have bought quite a few cookbooks and we have found that cooking for two is the best yet. We now own two additions of the book and it has not failed us yet. Every recipe we have made from this book has turned out fantastic. It has made us into better cooks and experience different kinds of meals. I would highly recommend buying this book.

A lot of cooking for one or two cookbooks seem to have larger recipes that are just cut in half without much more thought. Not so with this book- the respected test kitchen behind it has clearly put a lot of thought and testing into this new series of books catering to smaller quantity cooks. There are recipes are for classics as well as more modern-style dishes, and every one I've tried has worked well. The book has many full color photos as well as smaller black and white photos that illustrate steps in a recipe, or show what you DON'T want the final product to look like. There are frequent sidebars offering additional information on ingredients and technique, and most welcome are the ones that suggest ways to use up an ingredient. ( I can never use up a whole carton of buttermilk). The authors even include a list of cookware especially suited for smaller quantities. The layout of the book is clean , easy to read , and well- organized, making this an excellent cookbook overall.
