It's Family Recipes week on The Kitchn, but I thought it was important to take a moment and recognize all the different ways people define family. Our little family is just the two of us now (although we're looking to adopt a dog!). A lot of recipes make way more than two portions, and sometimes leftovers aren't fantastic to have around in this season of summer weddings and traveling. So I thought it was time to gather a good list of simple recipes that are perfect for two, recipes that are easy enough to tackle on a weeknight and varied enough that you won't get bored. From great vegetarian fare to pork chops or seasonal pizza, there's something for every couple—every family—here.
