The Complete Cooking For Two Cookbook Reviews

    Aug 06, 2014

    My boyfriend and I live together and use this book to cook our meals a lot. While we've found a few printed recipe errors that didn't turn out so well (stay away from the five-cheese skillet mac and cheese!), the majority of the recipes have been delicious. Our favorites include the gu...

    This cookbook was fantastic. I found numerous recipes that were perfect for cooking for myself. I absolutely loved this cookbook. There was only a small handful of recipes that I wouldn't make for myself. ETA (06/14/15) As I go deeper into this cookbook, my 5 star rating just keeps ...

    I am a huge fan of America?s Test Kitchen - I watch the shows on public television, I subscribe to the website and I own numerous ATK cookbooks. The problem following their recipes has always been the volume we end up with. It?s just the two of us and we aren?t big on leftovers, ...

    Love it. Many of these recipes are scaled down versions of those in their other cookbooks with a few new ones scattered in, but it's nice to have these for the odd occasion that I don't want 3+ servings of leftovers. A general note - America's Test Kitchen portion sizes are pretty larg...

    I don't read many cookbooks... I don't do much cooking, really. I'm more a open the box and stick in the microwave type of girl. But I keep on meaning to do more. This book appealed to me since I live with my mom and there's just the two of us (plus our senior dog). There are some ...

    Absolutely love this book. The layout is incredibly clean and neat, and am completely enamored of the various tips and tricks sprinkled throughout the book. I'm also quite pleased with the way the recipes are organized. Usually there's just a general "Meat" "Side-Dishes" "Breads" with ...

    This is a great cook book. The Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen make wonderful recipes that are not only extremely tasty but are incredibly easy to make. I love the variety of cuisines that this book covers and it makes it easy to try different foods at home. Plus, its nice kn...

    These are delicious and easy recipes. I did manage to up the ingredients to feed 3 easily. Awesome cookbook! I loved it and loved eating the food also! ...

    I am a fan of Test Kitchen, and used to get the magazine until I decided I really have enough recipes for a lifetime. This is the first cookbook I?ve bought in, possibly, three years. I bought it for two reasons, 1) it is recipes for 2, which suits my life, and, 2) I?m a fan of Tes...

    I only wanted to rate this book based on what I've read in it so far. Page four has some great tips for shopping smarter which I believe is my downfall when trying to downsize my cooking. The best tip was the reminder that buying bulk perishables to save money means buying way more tha...

    Have the Annuals? There are still new recipes here. I delayed getting this cookbook for quite some time, because I've been buying ATK's Annual Cooking for Two cookbooks since 2009, and couldn't find any reference to whether this Complete collection was exclusively reprints of those ...

    This is a little out of my normal reviewing range, but after my boyfriend referred to it as the Bible, and I had to agree, I thought it was worth a recommendation. We've made quite a few of the recipes in here, and they've all turned out really well. I like that they explain their meth...

    I've already used one recipe from this cookbook and it turned out great. These recipes are very versatile, written for two people but can obviously be doubled for larger groups. Classic recipes with detailed and easy to follow instructions. A must have for any kitchen! ...

    3.5/5 stars. Good recipes and I loved the section in the beginning that offered ideas for what to do with leftovers like bread and garlic...more of that please! A lot of the recipes look simple to make but they still require a lot of ingredients, it would be nice to have more ideas on ...

    This is definitely a keeper! I loved the variety of recipes, they all seem easy to make with few steps, and most of the ingredients are ordinary items I have no problem with recognizing and buying if I don't already have. I love how these recipes are purposely made to create small amou...

    I'm pescatarian, so much of this book is not of specific interest. However, the thought process behind the recipe down-scaling is universally applicable and will come in handy. ...

    I want this book. I want it right now. All kidding aside, this is perfect for those who are tired of all cookbooks saying "serves 4..or 6.." Lots of great recipes. There is the usual guide to basic kitchen skills but if you are an experienced cook, you can skip that and get straigh...

    Love this. Not only the recipes, which are fantastic (and don't serve 185 people). I always glance at the tips section, because I am such an incompetent cook. Not only are the tips useful, they're also re-posted throughout the books, in sections where you could conceivably need them ag...

    I tell everyone I talk to about food about this book. It makes a wonderful bridal shower gift. I have probably explored at least 30 of these recipes and only one did I not enjoy. (Thai coconut soup? I should have known). These recipes are easy to follow and most of the time can be ...

    This book is fabulous. My husband doesn't like leftovers (a real pain to deal with) so this book is a godsend. The recipes are for two people, however the portions are not skimpy. I've made the chicken Vesuvius and mini meat loaves, both were delicious. If you cook for two people this ...

    I love America's Test Kitchen, and this is one of my favorites so far!I love that I don't have a ton of left overs, or that I have to buy a ton of ingredients to make a meal that can feed a huge family. So far I have prepared about five meals and they were all great! This is a great co...

    I am a fan of Test Kitchen, and used to get the magazine until I decided I really have enough recipes for a lifetime. This is the first cookbook I?ve bought in, possibly, three years. I bought it for two reasons, 1) it is recipes for 2, which suits my life, and, 2) I?m a fan of Tes...

    I only wanted to rate this book based on what I've read in it so far. Page four has some great tips for shopping smarter which I believe is my downfall when trying to downsize my cooking. The best tip was the reminder that buying bulk perishables to save money means buying way more tha...

    3.5/5 stars. Good recipes and I loved the section in the beginning that offered ideas for what to do with leftovers like bread and garlic...more of that please! A lot of the recipes look simple to make but they still require a lot of ingredients, it would be nice to have more ideas on ...

    Love it. Many of these recipes are scaled down versions of those in their other cookbooks with a few new ones scattered in, but it's nice to have these for the odd occasion that I don't want 3+ servings of leftovers. A general note - America's Test Kitchen portion sizes are pretty larg...

    I don't read many cookbooks... I don't do much cooking, really. I'm more a open the box and stick in the microwave type of girl. But I keep on meaning to do more. This book appealed to me since I live with my mom and there's just the two of us (plus our senior dog). There are some ...

    Absolutely love this book. The layout is incredibly clean and neat, and am completely enamored of the various tips and tricks sprinkled throughout the book. I'm also quite pleased with the way the recipes are organized. Usually there's just a general "Meat" "Side-Dishes" "Breads" with ...

    I am a fan of Test Kitchen, and used to get the magazine until I decided I really have enough recipes for a lifetime. This is the first cookbook I?ve bought in, possibly, three years. I bought it for two reasons, 1) it is recipes for 2, which suits my life, and, 2) I?m a fan of Tes...

    I only wanted to rate this book based on what I've read in it so far. Page four has some great tips for shopping smarter which I believe is my downfall when trying to downsize my cooking. The best tip was the reminder that buying bulk perishables to save money means buying way more tha...

    I've already used one recipe from this cookbook and it turned out great. These recipes are very versatile, written for two people but can obviously be doubled for larger groups. Classic recipes with detailed and easy to follow instructions. A must have for any kitchen! ...

    3.5/5 stars. Good recipes and I loved the section in the beginning that offered ideas for what to do with leftovers like bread and garlic...more of that please! A lot of the recipes look simple to make but they still require a lot of ingredients, it would be nice to have more ideas on ...

    This is definitely a keeper! I loved the variety of recipes, they all seem easy to make with few steps, and most of the ingredients are ordinary items I have no problem with recognizing and buying if I don't already have. I love how these recipes are purposely made to create small amou...

    I'm pescatarian, so much of this book is not of specific interest. However, the thought process behind the recipe down-scaling is universally applicable and will come in handy. ...

    It's no secret that America's Test Kitchen is one of my most trusted cookbook/recipe sources. I have made (and blogged) so many of their recipes with success. I own many of their cookbooks, and subscribe to Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country-- AND have online subscriptions to their ...

    I've been cooking for one and then two people my entire adult life (over 20 years), but have still found this cookbook pretty useful. Lots of good tips under the Basics of Cooking for Two chapter. Most of the recipes I've tried so far have been...fine, not inspiring or anything but fin...

    The highly reputable ATK author-chefs present the best, though frequently not the simplest or easiest, version of hundreds of classic foods scaled perfectly to smaller families/couples. As with their other work, a scientific explanation of the "why" or science behind each recipe is app...

    I want this book. I want it right now. All kidding aside, this is perfect for those who are tired of all cookbooks saying "serves 4..or 6.." Lots of great recipes. There is the usual guide to basic kitchen skills but if you are an experienced cook, you can skip that and get straigh...

    Love this. Not only the recipes, which are fantastic (and don't serve 185 people). I always glance at the tips section, because I am such an incompetent cook. Not only are the tips useful, they're also re-posted throughout the books, in sections where you could conceivably need them ag...

    This should be required reading in college or at least upon leaving it. The recipies are pretty average but it goes over all the basics I wish I knew when I started cooking for myself regularly including how to cut and store various staples and techniques for basic dishes that are appl...

    I am a fan of Test Kitchen, and used to get the magazine until I decided I really have enough recipes for a lifetime. This is the first cookbook I?ve bought in, possibly, three years. I bought it for two reasons, 1) it is recipes for 2, which suits my life, and, 2) I?m a fan of Tes...

    I only wanted to rate this book based on what I've read in it so far. Page four has some great tips for shopping smarter which I believe is my downfall when trying to downsize my cooking. The best tip was the reminder that buying bulk perishables to save money means buying way more tha...

    This is a little out of my normal reviewing range, but after my boyfriend referred to it as the Bible, and I had to agree, I thought it was worth a recommendation. We've made quite a few of the recipes in here, and they've all turned out really well. I like that they explain their meth...

    I've recently started a cooking blog, mostly for my own purposes, and -- so far -- mostly recipes out of this cookbook. www.robertsweeney-food.blogspot.com I've only made a handful of recipes out of this cookbook so far, and as I continue to work my way through it, my rating might g...

    my one quibble with this wonderful, wonderful book is that the section in the front that lists essential cookware with *brand names and current prices* will make it seem dated eventually. Otherwise I would keep a copy for the day, eighteen years from now, when my youngest child goes of...

    I've already used one recipe from this cookbook and it turned out great. These recipes are very versatile, written for two people but can obviously be doubled for larger groups. Classic recipes with detailed and easy to follow instructions. A must have for any kitchen! ...

    3.5/5 stars. Good recipes and I loved the section in the beginning that offered ideas for what to do with leftovers like bread and garlic...more of that please! A lot of the recipes look simple to make but they still require a lot of ingredients, it would be nice to have more ideas on ...

    It's no secret that America's Test Kitchen is one of my most trusted cookbook/recipe sources. I have made (and blogged) so many of their recipes with success. I own many of their cookbooks, and subscribe to Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country-- AND have online subscriptions to their ...

    I've been cooking for one and then two people my entire adult life (over 20 years), but have still found this cookbook pretty useful. Lots of good tips under the Basics of Cooking for Two chapter. Most of the recipes I've tried so far have been...fine, not inspiring or anything but fin...

    I want this book. I want it right now. All kidding aside, this is perfect for those who are tired of all cookbooks saying "serves 4..or 6.." Lots of great recipes. There is the usual guide to basic kitchen skills but if you are an experienced cook, you can skip that and get straigh...

    Love this. Not only the recipes, which are fantastic (and don't serve 185 people). I always glance at the tips section, because I am such an incompetent cook. Not only are the tips useful, they're also re-posted throughout the books, in sections where you could conceivably need them ag...

    This should be required reading in college or at least upon leaving it. The recipies are pretty average but it goes over all the basics I wish I knew when I started cooking for myself regularly including how to cut and store various staples and techniques for basic dishes that are appl...

    I tell everyone I talk to about food about this book. It makes a wonderful bridal shower gift. I have probably explored at least 30 of these recipes and only one did I not enjoy. (Thai coconut soup? I should have known). These recipes are easy to follow and most of the time can be ...

    This book is fabulous. My husband doesn't like leftovers (a real pain to deal with) so this book is a godsend. The recipes are for two people, however the portions are not skimpy. I've made the chicken Vesuvius and mini meat loaves, both were delicious. If you cook for two people this ...

    My boyfriend and I live together and use this book to cook our meals a lot. While we've found a few printed recipe errors that didn't turn out so well (stay away from the five-cheese skillet mac and cheese!), the majority of the recipes have been delicious. Our favorites include the gu...

    This cookbook was fantastic. I found numerous recipes that were perfect for cooking for myself. I absolutely loved this cookbook. There was only a small handful of recipes that I wouldn't make for myself. ETA (06/14/15) As I go deeper into this cookbook, my 5 star rating just keeps ...

    Love it. Many of these recipes are scaled down versions of those in their other cookbooks with a few new ones scattered in, but it's nice to have these for the odd occasion that I don't want 3+ servings of leftovers. A general note - America's Test Kitchen portion sizes are pretty larg...

    I don't read many cookbooks... I don't do much cooking, really. I'm more a open the box and stick in the microwave type of girl. But I keep on meaning to do more. This book appealed to me since I live with my mom and there's just the two of us (plus our senior dog). There are some ...

    Absolutely love this book. The layout is incredibly clean and neat, and am completely enamored of the various tips and tricks sprinkled throughout the book. I'm also quite pleased with the way the recipes are organized. Usually there's just a general "Meat" "Side-Dishes" "Breads" with ...
