Everything you’d expect it to be I have lots of “quick and easy” cookbooks and “cooking for one” books but this is the one I used the most. These dishes are truly easy to make with fewer ingredients and simple procedures. I never thought that orange juice and a touch of butter (and nothing else) can create a wonderful sauce for fish. Better yet, it relies on fresh foods whenever possible, so you get true home-made cooking. I live alone but occasionally dine with my boyfriend so this book is perfect for me. I was never disappointed by the recipes even though I sometimes don’t measure time or quantities carefully (of course, I am not a complete novice cook either). The book provides 2 sets of ingredients – one for the single diner and another for two. For a few recipes such as Honest Meatloaf (honestly a great basic meatloaf) you have ingredients for two and four servings respectively, as cooking for one would be rather impractical. However, you can easily save or freeze the leftover for another…

Absolutely Fabulous!! For years I have been tired of using recipes sized for 4 or 8-11 people, then get so tired of the food I’ve cooked that I never want to make the recipe again.This book is one of the best cookbooks I have ever invested in. It’s a relief not to have to eat leftovers for the rest of the week and not to be afraid to go to the grocery store afraid I’ll overspend.Great tasting recipes you’ll never tire of, as there is hardly any leftovers. They’re all easy to make. I use this book every week and for entertaining.My blood sugar has returned to normal (along with my budget)- and it’s so concise and meals so tasty, that you want to include them over and over again. Now I eat much more fish and vegetables and have tried new and varied ways of cooking.The pan-fried catfish and Maryland crabcakes are the bomb. I’ve learned to poach chicken. Can’t wait to get to the ground turkey section.You can’t miss with this cookbook.

A good, practical book for a single cook! This is the most-used cookbook in my collection, and I collect cookbooks for single cooks. Unlike many healthy cookbooks, this includes recipes for a variety of main dishes (vegetarian, chicken drumsticks, veal, beef, pork and lamb) rather than an endless series of “boneless skinless chicken breasts.” It offers sensible suggestions for managing fresh produce without spoilage (such as a stir fry made from the grocery store take-out salad bar vegetables, rather than using a few pieces from a dozen different whole vegetables, and wasting the rest) and it pays attention to details such as the sizes of cans available in stores. The instructions for each recipe are clear and complete. As a bonus, each recipe has two sets of quantities – for one or two servings if the recipe doesn’t make good leftovers, or for two or four servings if the recipe is good the next day! Despite being “healthy” the servings are generous, even satisfying my twenty-something…
