For many, getting married and starting your newlywed life together means many things – fighting over the remote control, sharing a closet, and cooking at home more. I'm still struggling to conquer the first two but I can help you with the last one. Cooking at home for you and yours is one of the small, silly pleasures of being married. There's just something about making a meal and eating together that's so… being grown-up.
But sometimes, the whole cooking thing can be frustrating (especially if you're not a skilled foodie-type person) when it's only the two of you because most recipes and cookbooks out there are for multiple people. And no one wants THAT many leftovers. So, I'm helping y'all out - I've rounded up a collection of great cookbooks and blogs catering to portions meant for two people.

If you're in the process of registering for wedding and/or shower gifts, make sure to add a few of these cookbooks to your other kitchen registry items. I know that I added The Newlyweds' Cookbook on mine as a whim and got it (from The Ranty Bride!) as a wedding gift – it is HANDS DOWN my most used cookbook for the two of us. How about it, Tulle Nation – any of you registering for cookbooks? Do you have a favorite resource for cooking for two that you'd like to share? Take it away!
