The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook by America's Test Kitchen
Not Worth Your Money
This is not a cooking for two cookbook. It is more like cook for 4 to 6 then freeze the rest. I do that now. I expected more from America's Test Kitchen. Very few pictures.
Great for those downsizing
When the family became 2, I was still cooking for 4. This helps. Great book with good recipes and good directions on downsizing.
I have read a few of the receipts and there are some really great meals plus ideas for two. You can actually cook for just two or make left overs if you want dinner for two days. Also a great varity of different foods and deserts, easy to make and not that expensive to make the food. I love it.
Best Cookbook for Singles/Couples
I love this cookbook. I've been a cookbook collector for all my life and as a single person have struggled to change recipes so that I don't have too much left over. Now, thanks to this cookbook I can make delicious meals that are exactly right for a small amount. I have always liked America's Test Kitchen and know that their recipes are perfect - and they've done all the trial and error in making recipes smaller. I like it so much I got a copy for my sister's birthday gift. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to cook good meals in smaller sizes.
Book has many recipes and I will make a few of them. I was expecting more entree type recipes and less desert type. Overall, very informational.
The print was very small (very much like this review print) and hard to read. They need to keep in mind that a large number of those cooking for one or two are seniors and would like to have larger print. Also, the nutrition info should be with EACH recipe not somewhere else in the book and only a portion of the recipes mentioned. Thus, I returned the cookbook.
Perfect for 2 people
When you are only cooking for 2 people, you do not want to cook a lot of food. This book gives you a great portion for just the 2 of you
Great gift for wedding shower
Great gift for couples, empty nesters and for college students.
Gave cookbook as engagement gift.
This single working gal and avid foodie is thrilled to receive this cookbook. No more worries wracking my brain downsizing a recipe or wasting food from a weeks worth of leftovers. That said this is truly a must have cookbook for anyone to have in their collection. There is 650 foolproof step-by-step recipes from American Test Kitchens with essential cooking basics, instruction and tips for all skill levels and palettes. From eggs to grilling and slow cooker favs this book has it all. It would make a perfect gift for the beginner, recent grad or new bride. I look forward to using this book as my everyday guide. Thanks ATK and QVC for offering this wonderful cookbook!
Such a great assortment of recipes including vegetarian options, asian dishes, slow-cooker options and a multitude of sweets scaled down for two! The comfort food recipes have a new twist to them, making them interesting and just a little different. Great book for the new and "seasoned" cooks!
Good cooking tips, some great recipes
I love watching America's Test Kitchen so I was excited to get this cookbook. There are some great recipes in here and also some great cooking & prep tips. I've already tried a couple of the recipes with much success. This will be one of my main go-to cookbooks. Keep up the good word, America's Test Kitchen!
