Anytime feasts for couples from 20 years of Cook’s Illustrated.

Now that my kids are grown and (mostly) flown, my wife and I enjoy eating a bit more adventurously. We also want scaled-down versions of our family’s favorite recipes. We grab All-Time Best Dinners for Two to find a little inspiration . . . and exactly what we want to eat.
