My niece just moved into her first apartment without a roommate and has asked for help in finding cookbooks with portions designed to feed one or two people. She already has a classic Betty Crocker cookbook, but she's getting frustrated trying to either guesstimate how to scale down the recipes to fewer servings or get stuck eating the same 8 dishes over and over again until there's room in the freezer for something other than the leftovers, LOL. 

I've  already picked her up Where's Mom Now That I Need Here? and the Rachael Ray cookbook with servings for 2,4,6, and 8, but I'd like to help find a few more that are specifically for cooking for one or two people (not just your run-of-the-mill cookbooks, if that makes sense).  I thought I'd try boardies first. Deals, although appreciated, aren't necessary.   :)

I'm open to virtually anything that fits that bill, but some that are currently listed that would work include:

Cooking for One or Two :: Katherine Greenberg (ordered)
Cooking for One or Two (Gourmet Cookshelf Series) :: Sonia Allison
Woman's Day Cooking for One :: Jeri Laber (Editor)
Step By Step, Cooking for One & Two :: Rosemary Wadey
The Little Book of Cooking for One (Little Recipe Books)

Thanks!

Edited to correct typo. Oops!

Thanks, Maria! If you post it, I'll order it.  I prefer to work with boardies whenever possible. :)

Great! Thanks to Maria, I've got one cookbook on order. Please keep 'em coming! I'd love to find a few more still and they do not need to necessarily be the titles listed as long as they are designed for one or two people.

Thank you!
