This splendid Glazed Strawberry Pie for Two is a scaled-down version of the recipe for the Strawberry Pie I originally posted in 2013.  Recognizing that there are many small households (including mine) that neither need nor desire a full-sized pie, I have sized the pie down to fit a deep-dish 7” pie plate that will easily provide up to four servings – two to enjoy today and two for tomorrow! Or, for bigger appetites, the pie provides two generous servings. Continue reading Glazed Strawberry Pie For Two

Single-serving “mug” cakes and puddings are popular for those living alone. I haven’t published many recipes for one or two servings since the industry standard for recipe development tends to be dishes that will generate four to six servings.  That, however, for singles living alone can be a problem, particularly if the dish desired is not one that can be batch cooked and frozen in individual serving sizes for later use.

My proportionately sized Baked Caramel Pudding is perfect when you have no one to please with a dessert but yourself! Continue reading Baked Caramel Pudding For One
