Have you just moved in with a loved one? Gotten married? Or maybe you’re officially an empty nester! Regardless of your situation, transitioning to cooking for two can be difficult when most recipes are geared towards family cooking portions. These recipes are made for just two people so you won’t have to worry about having too much food or using too much of your groceries to create one meal. This allows you to try something new each night and enjoy your gourmet suppers for two!
