It's easy to mix and match Cooking for 2 recipes by turning to the Recipe Index at the back of the magazine and choosing items from the various categories.

To make meal planning even easier, the Cooking for 2 staff has created a week's worth of flavorful menus using the seven main dishes found in the "Easy Everyday Entrees" section of the Winter 2009 issue.

We've matched up the entrees with sides and desserts from the current issue and from past issues.
