Downsized versions of recipes appearing in Taste of Home
Bacon, Cremini & Brie Potatoes
This is my version of an ultimate baked potato. Rich Brie, crispy bacon and cremini mushrooms transform the humble baked potato into something really special— Bacon, Cremini & Brie Potatoes.

BLT Salad for Two
This simple BLT Salad for Two is a favorite of everyone I know! I like to keep the ingredients in separate containers in the fridge. Just toss together for one or more servings whenever needed.
—Mary Sigfusson, Mankato, Minnesota
Caramel Pumpkin Tiramisu for Two
I'm not fond of traditional tiramisu, so I used pumpkin and bourbon in place of coffee and it's absolutely fabulous. I always make extra sauce and eat it over vanilla ice cream. Caramel Pumpkin Tiramisu for Two is so good, I can't leave it alone!
—Mary Filipiak, Fort Wayne, Indiana
Easy Sausage & Ravioli for Two
This saucy combo of frozen ravioli and Italian sausage is guaranteed to please. Easy Sausage & Ravioli for Two is great served with garlic bread and a salad.
—Misty Williams, Grain Valley, Missouri
Maple Horseradish Beets for Two
Even folks who say they don't like beets will think this simple treatment is a winner. An easy glaze gives Maple Horseradish Beets for Two great taste...and a little zip.

Shrimp & Tortellini in Tomato Cream for Two
This shrimp and pasta combination is one of my husband's favorites. It's healthy, and he doesn't even know it. Shrimp & Tortellini in Tomato Cream for Two is easy to double for company.
