125 perfectly proportioned recipes for small households

Featuring more than 125 delectable recipes perfectly sized for one- and two-person households, this indispensable cookbook has great ideas for breakfasts, breads and baked goods, sandwiches and soups, dinner entrees, and decadent desserts. Favorites such as Lasagna, Tuna Noodle Casserole, French Bread, and Carrot Cake Cupcakes that were out of reach for small and gluten-free households are now back on the menu!

The kitchen math is done, including reworking recipes so that cooks aren’t attempting to split eggs or deal with leftover ingredients. Pointers on how to stock a two-person pantry with gluten-free ingredients, how to select and use pans for smaller yields, and which utensils facilitate small-scale recipes make cooking for two simple. Each recipe includes full nutrition information.

Editorial Reviews

03/20/2017
This solid cookbook for novices was inspired when Fenster (100 Best Gluten-Free Recipes) found herself still cooking large portions despite her household having shrunk. She realized there was a need for small-batch cooking information for childless couples and empty nesters. Cooking for the actual number of people in one’s home helps to control portion sizes, reduces the need for excessive freezer or refrigerator space, and eliminates the waste of food and expensive ingredients. The introduction sets up a small-batch kitchen, with tips and tricks for cooking in smaller quantities, recommended brands for ingredients, and a bonus recipe for Fenster’s gluten-free flour blend. Recipes run the typical spectrum from breakfast to desserts and are basically everyday fare, just downsized and gluten-free. Some recipes rely on pre-made gluten-free products such as pasta and bread, but there are recipes for pie crust and pizza dough. This is a great introduction to gluten-free small-batch cooking.

“Once again, Carol Fenster has changed the way we cook gluten free. Until now, gluten-free recipes usually fed four to six. Thanks to Carol, we now have meals and desserts that are perfect for two—from small pies to mini Bundt cakes; from chicken and dumplings to lasagna. I can’t wait to use this in my own kitchen! It’s so sensible and smart and long overdue.”—Beth Hillson, Author of Gluten-Free Makeovers and Complete Guide to Living Well Gluten Free, and Food Editor, Gluten Free & More
