Dione's Pick: Taste of Home: Cooking for Two

Taste of Home Cooking for Two is designed especially for the two-person table. Whether you're newlyweds or empty nesters, this mouthwatering collection offers all the classics you love, sized right for a pair.

I love creating in the kitchen on the weekends. When I cook, I like to cook a big pot of something and have leftovers to bring for my lunches at work. It’s really hard for me to cook small portions. I’m always looking for new recipes and found Taste of Home: Cooking for Two at the library.

This cookbook has 317 recipes ranging from snacks to desserts. It even has recipes using my kitchen gadgets like pressure cookers and air fryers. Although this book did not have picture for every recipe, it had enough for me. It also included many tips in the form of health tips, test kitchen tips, did you know tips, and other tidbits scattered throughout the book. Something I really look for in recipes, the nutrition breakdown was included which I really appreciated.

This cookbook sparked some intriguing ideas for new dishes and twists to my old favorites. I tried the Baked Potato Soup, Lemony Mushroom-Orzo Soup, Spicy Honey Mustard Green Beans, Easy Almond Joy Chia Pudding, and Bananas Foster Sundaes. If you’re looking for some meal inspiration for one or two, pick up this book at your local library.

Taste of Home: Cooking for Two is available at your library in print. Happy Reading!
