Flavorful, healthy recipes for two, specially designed for empty nesters by the experts at Betty Crocker
For parents whose children have finally left home, cooking just for two can be both a relief (no more worries about pleasing picky eaters!) and a challenge. This unique cookbook comes to the rescue with 132 tasty, nutritious recipes developed specifically for couples, along with helpful advice on eating healthy, outfitting a kitchen, and shopping for two.
From on-the-go snacks, speedy soups and sandwiches, and simple salads to easy main dishes, cozy casseroles, and fast skillet meals, all of the recipes are four steps or fewer, most can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, and all are guaranteed to be delicious and healthy. Couples can enjoy a light supper of Tropical Salsa-Topped Chicken Salad, linger over a romantic dinner of Grilled Bourbon-Mustard Tuna, or relax with homey Slow Cooker Creole Jambalaya. To top it all off, the book includes chapters on small-batch baking and, of course, yummy desserts like Cran-Pear Crisp and Bananas Foster with Ice Cream.
With shortcuts or substitutions for every recipe and 50 full-color photographs, Betty Crocker Just the Two of Us Cookbook is destined to become the go-to cookbook for empty nest-baby boomers everywhere.
