There are dozens of reasons for making small batches of food: newlyweds, singles, empty nest couples, etc. Ryan Ross’s cookbook, No-Fuss Cookbook for Newlyweds: Practical Tips and Perfectly Portioned Recipes to Cook Together has plenty of ideas for cooking together, whether you are a newlywed or not. Cooking with a partner is fun, and can help build good relationships, as well as put out yummy food. This cookbook actually has great ideas, and appealing recipes that everyone will want to try. Most of the recipes are quite easy, and the instructions are simple to follow, so if one of the cooks has little experience, the dishes can turn out picture perfect anyway. Cooking with a partner is a great way to upgrade cooking skills.

This cookbook includes more than just recipes, there is information on how to set up a kitchen for two, Basic equipment needed to cook together, how to shop for two, and basic ingredients to have on hand. The recipes are written in standard form and call for ingredients that are easy to obtain at most larger grocery stores. Each recipe lets the cooks know if they are dairy free, gluten free, or nut free, which is nice for those with allergies or special dietary needs. Most of the recipes make good use of fruits and vegetables, as well as proteins, so cooking together can also be a healthy experience.

The one drawback to this cookbook is that there is only one photograph before each chapter and none in the chapters. Most modern-day cooks like to see what a finished dish will look like, and the lack of photos is unfortunate. Nevertheless, this cookbook has great suggestions for cooking with a partner, as well as good cooking hints and of course, mouthwatering recipes. If you don’t care about the lack of photos, you’ll most likely find several good recipes to make with your partner.
