In 'Cooking for Two,' the test kitchen's goal was to tailor traditional recipes to serve just the two of you, with customized cooking techniques and clever shopping tips that reduce food waste and money. Great lasagna starts to lose its luster when you eat leftovers for the fourth day in a row. While it may seem obvious that a recipe for four can simply be cut in half to make it work, our tests proved that's not always the case; Cooking with smaller quantities of ingredients often requires different preparation techniques, cooking time, temperature, and proportion of ingredients. This was especially true when we were working on scaled-down desserts; Baking is a relentless science in which any change in recipe quantities often requires changes in baking times and temperatures.
