Scale Your Favorite Recipes Down to Size

Do you skip recipes that serve four, six or more people because there are only two of you and you don't like to have leftovers? Does cutting those recipes in half seem like double the work?

Our Test Kitchen has compiled some guidelines to help you cut this task down to size, so you don't miss out on delicious dishes simply because the recipes make too much. Our home economists suggest trying these techniques when reducing recipes for entrees, casseroles, side dishes, salads and more. But they don't recommend them for baked goods.
