Eats Alone  May 9, 2007
The book is put together well with servings for one. What I would have liked is a few more simple meals. Even though the recipes are sized for one I still find it difficult to find and cook just one piece of meat to make the dishes in the book.
Buy This Book!  Feb 5, 2007
Are you on your own and tired of eating cereal and calling it dinner? Can't afford another night of fast food or ordering in? Well then buy this book!! The meals in here are quick and easy to make. I have made Soothing Tortellini-Broccolini Soup, Sizzling Shrimp With Garlic and Salmon Packet With Sicilian Flavors from the book and they are all fantastic!! Also, Toni put in some suggestions you can substitute other things for in case you don't have a particular ingredient. The directions are easy to follow, which is a plus, and you don't end up with a million things to wash after :).
Hate to cook  Nov 5, 2006
I got some ideas from this book, but a lot of the recipes required exotic items that take time to find and add to cost.
Serves One: Simple Meals to Savor When You're on Your Own  Sep 2, 2006
A pretty complete cook book. The beginning is really good for beginning cooks. The recipes are basic and substitues are provided in some cases. The only thing missing is the nutrional values which could be helpful for people with special needs.
Worthwhile and accessible "middlebrow" book for the novice and intermediate solo cook  Jul 2, 2006
Even with my limited experience, (but I've dated and lived with some very good, experienced cooks), I can tell that about half the recipes in this book are uninspired, workaday fare. They are there to fill out the pages and create a thicker book that the average cookbook shopper will think gives more "bang" for the buck.

But even with that caveat, I feel that this book deserves an extra star for its attempt to focus on the needs of an underserved American market : beginning and intermediate cooks who need (or want) to start cooking for themselves. For this audience, "Serves One" is a great choice, especially if they need to get started right away and can't wait to score a copy of "Going Solo In the Kitchen".

I am OK with the "averageness" of many of these recipes. I don't need gourmet cooking, I don't need bistro fare, I don't need Mario Batali cuisine. I can go to my local bistros for that. At this stage in my cooking career, I need simple, foolproof recipes that deliver decent results with a minimum of fancy ingredients, and I need them scaled for 1 or 2 servings so I don't waste time doing algebra in my head while I'm trying to master the basics of braising or sauteing...or else stuffing my refrigerator with more wasted leftovers than I'll ever be able to finish. I also want some variety, so I don't get bored with making the same 5 or 6 dishes again and again. It's OK if some of the food I produce is unexciting - whatever I cook and make for myself with 'Serves One" is bound to be cheaper, fresher, tastier and better for me than any pizza, takeout or drive through food around.

And in fact, some of the recipes do sound promising ( I'm looking forward to making the "Pickled,Spiced Grapes"), and a couple have rewarded my inexpert efforts with pleasant, satisfying dishes that gave me confidence in my abilities to cook proper, worthwhile meals.

So in that spirit, I would recommend this as a worthwhile addition to the beginning/intermediate cooks' library. My ex-girlfriends might turn their noses up at it, but this has been a very useful book for me, well worth the purchase price and the time spent going through it.
