Cooking for 1 or 2 Recipes

It can sometimes be difficult to scale down recipes to cook for 1 or 2 persons. Whether you live alone or with another, sometimes you just don't want leftovers. These recipes are designed to serve one or two persons, but many of them can easily be doubled or tripled when the need arises. Great recipes for romantic dinners for two. As with any recipe, feel free to modify it to satisfy your own tastes.
