Party for Two by Bruce Cadle - Review

This ain't your mama's recipe book!

This book was established with one main purpose in mind.  Bruce and his wife want to help other couples see how important a weekly date night is.  No, there's no preaching, but they do combat every argument you can come up with.  'We can't afford it!  We can't get a babysitter!'  The only problem not solved in this book is how to have a date night when one party is unwilling, but they do give enough good reasons that you might be able to persuade them.  Bruce and his wife have been happily married for over 35 years and both attribute a large portion of that to date night.  They get the chance to fall in love all over again.

The recipes in this book are tasty!  All of them are set up so that they take minimal kitchen time for your date night.  It's organized into different courses to make meal prep easier.  Simply go through and choose one item from each category for a tasty, romantic dinner.  Personally, I'm down for some Grilled Pina Colada! 

I think couples could really get a lot of great ideas from this book.  Not part of a couple?  That doesn't mean you can't try some of the great recipes :)  My only complaint with this book is that I would have liked to see the food photos in color.  They still look delicious and they're presented well, but I really think color would have made them mouth-watering and the book a bit more entertaining to read.
