Looking for websites/cookbooks with recipes for two people

With recipes in most cookbooks and websites ranging for 4-to-6 servings per recipe, this usually means we have a LOT of leftovers. We have been halving the recipes we're eating, but often this doesn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions for cookbooks/websites that specialize in smaller portions, or any reducing portion size tips you'd like to pass on to a novice?

I abandoned the microwave and haven't looked back

A few years ago I was watching an episode of one of Jamie Oliver's cooking shows. He noted, with an air of superiority, that he doesn't even own a microwave.

Y'all know that I'm no chef (seriously, MY knives are shaped like animals), but Ben's work is making me want to change my ways… or at least purchase a knife that'll make me FEEL like a pro. Check out this sexy knife action…

Pangsit goreng: my favourite party snack

Pangsit was always a bit of a mystery to me; my grandma has been cooking for so long that she eyeballs all of her recipes and the way she folds these deep fried delights was too quick for me to follow. In short, pangsit goreng is deep fried wonton (although we'll be using spring roll pastry, because oma said so), filled with a meat mixture. Now that I have uncovered the enigmas I'd love to share them with all of you lovelies.
