Tea for two. That's what it's all about, right? So how come every recipe you pick up says "serves 4 to 6"? Or more! What do you do when you want macaroni and cheese, but don't want to be reheating it for three nights? Or a couple of cookies, but don't want to be tempted by two dozen sitting on the counter all week?

I picked up this cookbook hoping for a little bit of inspiration, and I was completely distracted from page 1. What I liked about this book is that from the very start the purpose of the book is clear: two servings, no leftovers. Meaning the measurements in this book are so miniscule, that when it comes to eggs, the recipes call for quail eggs or egg beaters. This truly is a book dedicated to cooking for two. Personally I like leftovers, so I'm off to find a book about cooking for four.

I haven't cooked from it yet, so this is a preliminary review, but I'm really pleased with it so far. I always read my cookbooks the same way: start with the introduction, scan the sections to see how it's been divided up, then go page by page reading the title and description of each recipe. I'm about halfway through that final step right now, and have already seen quite a number of recipes that I would like to try, both recipes that fit my dietary restrictions as they are and recipes that I ca ...more

A very short, but excellent little book, containing quite a few excellent recipes, all of which have two servings.

The dessert section is of particular interest -- I never thought of the idea of using quail eggs instead of chicken eggs to be able to make smaller batches of cookies! This is definitely a cookbook I'll be making several recipes from.
