A joyful read - Judith Jones Cooking for One

I have wanted to read this book since it's launch not long ago, thinking that if I cooked less, we'd eat less. And it's easier to double a recipe for 1 than to quarter a recipe for 8. On my recent trip to NH I figured I'd thumb through it on the bus trip. I brought a few books with me, but actually I read this one from cover to cover. I genuinely enjoyed Judith's voice, her approach, and her ideas for leftovers redux. If you are cooking for 1 or for 2, I highly recommend this book for ideas of how to use those larger cuts of meat, and just taking time to prepare something nice just for you.
