20 Recipes for Two



One of the challenges of the newly empty nest is learning to cook for only two people again. One of the awesome things about cooking for two people is that you can try new things and sometimes eat healthier because you no longer have to satisfy the tastes of children. These 20 Recipes for Two are a collection of healthy recipes, chicken recipes, beef recipes, vegetarian recipes, and more (even some desserts).
