Why are the recipes not always (or even frequently) “for two”?
Yep, many have “lots of leftovers” (see sub-title of the blog). Most of the meat recipes are scalable to whatever number is needed. Many recipes that we enjoy (two of us) or I want to try come down to one or two component that can not be conveniently subdivided. One egg. A can of beans or crushed tomatoes. Or one piece of a vegetable or fruit. It’s throwing it away or use it.
Also at times, I will do a bigger recipe since leftovers are almost required at our house due to my schedule. I’m cooking for two, and not all the recipes are for two… I have several times considered converting to only “for two” recipes, but it just doesn’t fit our “for two” home.
I do have 95+% of the recipes labeled with a number of servings, and I am working on a “Tips for Two” page that will help some of the issues. Also, all recipes have built into the recipe card area where you can adjust the ingredients to the amount you need.
