Overview

A fusion of simplicity, healthy ingredients and just-right quantities, these delicious, exciting new recipes are designed for today's growing world of empty-nesters, couples without children and smaller households.
For millions of fast-paced, modern households, the old cookbook standard of "serves four" is increasingly outdated and a daily nuisance. With more than 77 million baby boomers adjusting to the Empty Nest Syndrome, and with their adult children setting up their own new homes, there is a mounting demand for quick, easy, healthy recipes yielding fewer servings.
But cooking for two people or even singles isn't as simple as cutting a recipe in half. In EatingWell Serves Two, the award-winning editors and recipe developers for America's leading food and nutrition magazine have created 150 dinner recipes from their hugely popular "Healthy in a Hurry" and "Serves Two" columns to meet the specific needs of smaller households.
More than a cookbook, EatingWell Serves Two provides a smart guide for how to shop in small quantities, how to store leftover ingredients, keep a well-stocked pantry and use easy cooking strategies that result in minimal waste while putting a healthy, delicious meal on the table in 45 minutes or less. Filled with mouthwatering photography and tips on shopping, planning and simple cooking for two with healthy ingredients and without waste.

Editorial Reviews

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.

    Great Cookbook!

    Now that the last child is away at school, I found I had to re-teach myself to cook for 2 people again. We are both trying to eat healthy and my husband likes to try new recipes like I do.

    The portions are substantial, and I found that I rarely have to make another dish to round out the meal other than some fruit or a light salad.

    I've tried more than 10 different recipes since I brought the book home and have liked everyone of them. None of the recipes are very time-consuming or difficult. The ingredients are readily available.

    If you enjoy new recipes and really don't like leftovers, this is a good cookbook to add to your collection or start out with if you are a new "couple". A great feature is side notes telling you how to save or reuse food that might otherwise go to waste after you've opened a can of something or the recipe calls for only a portion of the box.

    Tasty and Healthy

    Cookbook Keeper

    PROS: I bought this book so that I could start eating more nutritiously as well as being able to prepare meals for just two people. The recipes are wonderful, haven't made one I didn't like yet. The ingredients are not exotic, so no need to go hunting for ingredients just to make a dish. The recipes cook up in their indicated timeframe. Love it and would highly recommend it.

    CONS: Doesn't contain a picture for every recipe.

    Eating Well-Serves Two

    I bought this book to add to my cookbook library. It immediately became my favorite. With all the children gone, my husband & I were always eating leftovers. I was also trying to lose weight. These recipes are delicous as well designed for 2 servings. There are nutritional facts listed in the notes that make it easy to follow a weight loss plan while enjoing the food cooked. The recipes were easy to follow. The ingredients are note unusual. The recipes include healthier spices for flavor. I recommend this book to my friends with similar situations all the time. I look forward to any subsequent books.
