Easy meals and creative recipes, tips, and techniques. Meals for two have never been so easy or delicious. Using nothing more than a slow cooker for heat and a few common kitchen helpers—like foil, mini loaf pans, ramekins, a metal jar ring, a glass baking dish, plastic liners, and a stick blender—Cynthia Stevens Graubart turns the common slow cooker (3 1/2-quart) into a multi-use cooking convenience.

A slow cooker is a recently popular form of cooking, even though it has been around centuries. It involves a method, using a counter top appliance, of slowly simmering a meal that does not involve a lot of attention. If one looks at slow cooker recipes, they will see that a lot of them consist of letting the meal simmer for 8 hours or more. Especially when cooking for a family of two, it is an amazing resource for creating easy and hassle free meals, all while creating something that is still enjoyable. Slow cookers are amazingly adaptable. They are wonderful for having a hot meal to come home to after work. Even on a day at home, I find it's so good to put something in the slow cooker early, leaving the rest of the day free in the sure knowledge that dinner is organized. A dinner can be started hours in advance so that by mealtime, all you need to do is serve. Here are some advantages of cooking with a slow cooker: -Slow cooker food is more delicious and nutritious. -The slow cooker is easy to clean. -A slow cooker uses less energy than an electric oven. -Slow cooker cooking needs very less oil, less oil means fewer calories. Under the cover you'll find 25 recipes for: -Breakfast -Dinner -Snacks -Lunch -Desserts Get your copy now!

50 Recipes for EVERYTHING You'll Ever Want to Make. Because smaller families shouldn't have to rely on recipes built for four or six, America's Test Kitchen has reengineered 650 of our best recipes to serve just two. Over the years we've discovered that scaling down a recipe isn't as simple as cutting the ingredients in half—cooking times, temperatures, and equipment need to be adapted as well. This comprehensive cookbook takes the guesswork out of cooking for two so you can be sure that anything you want to make—from Classic Beef Stew to Lasagna to a mini batch of Fudgy Brownies or a Fluffy Yellow Layer Cake—will come out right (and perfectly proportioned) every time. We'll also give you options when you're short on time. 150 recipes, including Chicken Saltimbocca and Pan-Seared Rib-Eye Steaks with Sweet-Tart Red Wine Sauce, can be on the table in 30 minutes or less. For those times when you want healthier fare, we've provided more than 100 recipes labeled "Light" such as Provencal Vegetable Soup and Poached Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit, each with nutritional information listed in an easy-to-read chart in the back of the book. And we include chapters on for-two slow cooking, grilling, and baking pies, quick breads, cakes, and cookies. A 25-page manual teaches the basics of cooking for two, including clever shopping strategies to reduce waste, smart storage tricks help extend freshness of key ingredients, and our picks for the most useful kitchen equipment for any two-person household.
