I might be raising a big family of growing boys, but I know that so many of you are looking for Easy Dinner Recipes for Two! Whether you are an empty-nester, a small family with a baby, or a widow on your own, I get emails every day from readers just like YOU — looking for quick-prep meals in smaller quantities. That’s why I’ve put together a simple 2-week meal plan complete with easy recipes that serve just two people, as well as a printable recipe booklet and shopping lists to keep you organized!
I’m going to make this as easy as possible for you! My goal with this collection is to provide you with a handful of simple, quick-prep easy dinners for two that you can turn to on your busiest weeknights!
These ideas take advantage of a variety of ingredients and cuisines, so there’s something here for everyone — from chicken to beef, pork to seafood, and even a couple of vegetarian options.
This isn’t fancy, gourmet cooking. It’s just a compilation of some of my favorite go-to recipes that come together in a pinch. It’s cooking for real life and it’s portioned just for two!
My email subscribers can download the free printable shopping lists and recipe booklet for Two Weeks of Easy Dinner Recipes for Two to make your job even easier! Not on my list yet? Just sign up here and I’ll send it straight to your inbox!
Now, how about a quick look at the recipes that I’ve included in your two week meal plan?
You’ll notice that some nights take advantage of leftovers from earlier in the week, while other nights are slotted for restaurant dining out or carry-out pizza. This is a very flexible “schedule” that you can move around and change to accommodate your lifestyle!
