These go together quickly, too. Each recipe includes an estimate of time to table and, if anything, the estimates seem to run a little on the long side. Some cookbooks that promise 30 minute recipes are optimistic about how quickly some of us can chop. Here are recipes that really do go together in a scant 30 minutes, especially if both people are in the kitchen.
The Publisher's Weekly bit above mentions some of the more esoteric recipes. Interesting as those sound, more appealing to us have been chicken tacos and salt and pepper shrimp (Best. Shrimp. Ever. -- and incredibly fast and easy to make). A strength of this book is its imaginative ways with relatively ordinary ingredients and its helpful introduction to ingredients that I have not used before (chipotles [smoked jalapenos] in adobo sauce is one example that comes to mind). I am becoming a bolder, better cook because the information gives me courage to try new things and to use old ingredients differently.
The introduction provides an overview of how to shop when cooking for two, including specific suggestions for shopping for produce and meats. A concise section of very basic cooking instructions will help anyone new to or simply timid about approaching a stove. There are complete, accurate descriptions of methods and there is a brief but thorough section on outfitting a kitchen for the first time.Read more ›
What really makes this book a winner for me are the Notes. Every time I read an instruction or ingredient I'm not quite sure about, there is a Note exactly on point, anticipating my question. In addition, the tips regarding shopping in small quantities are very valuable.
If you're looking for a cookbook with delicious recipes and smaller quantities, don't pass this one up!
Today I made a pot of the Corn and Bacon Chowder. White chowder, for me, says "lots of fat in order to be good." This stuff has 1/2 cup of low fat milk in it and is as creamy and thick as I was craving. The flavor is great and it'll make a great lunch tomorrow, which is why I made it. I have to say I have enjoyed every single dish I have prepared. And it's really cut down on my meat department grocery bill. This recipe only calls for two pieces of bacon.
The recipes taste complicated, like you spent hours preparing them. Yet, they are simple enough for a novice cook. I disagree with a comment I read saying this book tends to lean more toward the bland, lemony chicken recipes. I definitely have not found that to be true. And while it does use a few of the same ingredients over again in several recipes, I appreciate alternative uses for miso if I'm going to spend $6.00 to have it around. My only problem with this book is that there are no leftovers for lunches.
I have probably bought 10 books on cooking for two over the years. And this is the only one I have really ever used. I can't recommend it enough. I'll certainly be passing this one on to my other child-free friends and family!
