Who doesn’t love a night in? Like a fun date night with Easy Meals for Two?
Healthy meals for two are a great way to show your love to your loved one and share a great meal with the person you want to be with.
I’ve been doing a lot of email communication with the people that look at my website and I’ve found that probably 80 percent of people are cooking for themselves and their spouse and need recipes that only make 2-4 servings.
So I decided to do a roundup post on recipes that are for people that only need a few servings and make some really great leftovers. 🙂
I have broken this post up to different categories:
- Chicken Recipes
- Vegetarian & Pasta Dishes
- Sandwiches & Pizza Recipes
These are recipes from my own blog as well as recipes from blog friends that I trust and I know you will love anything you make.
Click on the photo or the link above to go right to the recipe! I’ve included a little bit on what the recipe is like so you get a feel for what it is.
I hope this is helpful and you find recipes you will love to make!
