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For millions of fast-paced, modern households, the old cookbook standard of "serves four" is increasingly outdated and a daily nuisance.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.
