Gourmet Cooking For Two

Gourmet Cooking for TwoI’m happy to be participating in the Cedar Fort virtual blog tour for author Christi Silbaugh’s latest release, GOURMET COOKING FOR TWO.

Here are my thoughts.

Finding the perfect recipe for a couple’s only meal can sometimes be difficult. You find the meal you want to prepare, but it’s designed for a group of six or more.

Author Christi Silbaugh has crafted the perfect cookbook for a ‘couple’s only’ meal. Each recipe is designed to feed only two with simple and easy ingredients and instructions.

The cookbook is divided into six categories – appetizers, salads, soups, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. Adult Tater Tots, Parmesan Dill Sea Bass and Chocolate Mousse are just a few of the delicious recipes included. Many of the yummy recipes are accompanied by beautiful full page, color photographs. To add to the dreamy flavor of the cookbook, the author shares a romantic tip with each of the more than 100 recipes.

GOURMET COOKING FOR TWO is a fascinating cookbook for couples just dating or those married for years looking to add a little romance back into their lives. This cookbook will add some savory to your cooking and your relationship.

  1. It is even trickier here because I am a vegetarian and my partner is not. Finding gourmet recipes for two is challenging - but finding single serve treats is even harder.
    We frequently freeze portions for later.

  2. Mason - I'm always interested in good recipes. And it's nice to find some that are designed for two. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Such a welcome addition to many people's cookbook shelves.

  4. I'm in exactly the same position as Elephant's Child. Tis a tad difficult at times.

    The books sounds great though! :)

  5. I have to cook for two and it's quite a challenge. Thanks for the info about this book!

  6. Looks like a goodie! Merry Christmas from Carole's Chatter

  7. The way my family's schedules go, I often find myself cooking small meals. What a great resource to keep from having a ton of leftovers.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
