Our Favorite Dinner Ideas for Two, Including Quick Weeknight Recipes and Some Special Romantic Meals
Whether it's a weeknight or a special occasion, cooking dinner for two doesn't always have to mean taking a recipe that serves four and cutting it in half. Here, we've gathered a dozen dinner ideas for two, many of which lend themselves especially well to a smaller number of servings. Think: homemade pizza, because it can be hard to turn out pizzas for a crowd, or a steak dinner that has you split one ribeye, rather than buying two. Or roasted game hen because a chicken is too big but the game hen yields just the right amount for two diners. There are also plant-based dinner ideas for two, because not every couple wants chicken or salmon every night. These smart recipes just might have you thinking two is the new four.
