I once taught an adult program called Eating Smart for Seniors. For that class, I developed many recipes for one or two people that were simple to prepare and used common ingredients.—Terri Brown, Darien, Wisconsin
THESE special grilled sandwiches are great for lunch or supper.
Since I'm cooking for two at our house nowadays, I enjoy being creative with simple meals. Time spent in the kitchen is kept to a minimum when this entree is on the menu.

I learned that in Rome and other parts of Italy, pizza simply started out as bread with oil and herbs on it. In some locales, cheese, tomato and grilled meat were added. With the basic original pizza ingredients surrounding me, I was inspired to make a modern version of an ancient food and this recipe was born.—Mara Mcauley, Hinsdale, New York
MY FAMILY loves chicken, so I came up with this easy sandwich recipe. The chicken stays moist and tasty prepared this way.
With potatoes or fries and a salad, it's a complete meal.

I was delighted to find this recipe, a healthy version of burgers with little fat, but flavorful ingredients, including carrot, onion and apple. I make these burgers with either ground turkey or chicken.
We like to roast turkey throughout the year because we enjoy the leftovers. Several years ago, while nibbling on a fresh Waldorf salad and some cold turkey, I decided to combine the two. This pita was an instant hit.

A tangy sour cream sauce complements these moist ground turkey burgers stuffed with feta cheese. “It’s not always easy to cook for two,” notes Lillian Julow of Gainesville, Texas, “but burgers make it a cinch. This recipe can easily be doubled, too.”
