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.
