From Publishers Weekly
An introduction covering the most basic of basics and dishes such as Tex-Mex Taco Salad might send serious home chefs in search of another book, but this straightforward, convenience- and health-driven volume has more gourmet gusto than readers might expect. And Romanoff, recipe developer for EatingWell magazine, provides recipes that make enough dinner for two people and can be prepared "in 45 minutes or less (under 30 minutes, in some cases)." Each recipe includes information on active time and total time to complete the dish and nutrition data; many have make-ahead instructions. Especially tempting options include Lamb, Fig & Olive Stew; a dressed-up grilled cheese (Grilled Manchego with Spinach and Spicy Plum Chutney); Pomegranate Duck; Coffee Bean & Peppercorn Steak; and quick desserts like Balsamic Vinegar-Spiked Strawberries, and Roasted Grapes. A section on sides such as Quick Cheese Grits and Avocado-Corn Salsa and suggested menus for a variety of occasions—New Year's Eve, a "hot date," pizza night—make planning a healthy meal easy, even when time is limited.

I got this book as a Christmas gift for my 22-year-old son who has been living on his own in his own apartment for two years now. He has really enjoyed planning and cooking his own meals, and with the freedom to make whatever he wants, has become something of a foodie. He enjoys poring over cookbooks, making his selections, and shopping for the ingredients.
Problem is, he's been using cookbooks with recipes designed to serve a family. While it's convenient to have the leftovers, it's also tempting to eat too much when he is faced with a potful or panful of food. So he has put on some weight as a result.
I thought this book would be great for him because it only makes two servings-- enough for one person to either use for two meals, or to have seconds but no more. He is very excited about this cookbook and feels good that it will help him avoid overeating. He has seen a nutritionist and it's going to be easy for him to follow her guidelines using these recipes. Another great book from Eating Well.
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!

My only complaint -- it didn't come with a cook.
