Cooking for Two at Home - Can it Be Fast, Frugal and Fun? Yes!
And thousands of couples found out how with my first book, "Table for Two - The Cookbook for Couples" (http://amzn.to/ZM96BI).
Now I'm excited to announce the debut of "Table for Two - Back for Seconds" featuring over 235 more recipes scaled down for two. Each one can be made with fresh and readily available ingredients; there's nothing exotic, nothing cute. And most can be made in under an hour - many in less than half an hour. Heck, some can be made in 15 minutes or less.
Chapters include Salads, Soups, Stews & Chilis, Sandwiches, Seafood, Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Vegetarian, Sides, Breakfast, and Desserts. Plus dozens of kitchen tips and cooking hints all presented with a side of garlic-infused humor and a steaming bowl of buffoonery.
The cost of producing the book is $4000. This includes the cover design, interior design, editing, indexing and galleys. As with the first Table for Two cookbook, all of the folks involved with the project live and work right here in the U. S.
As a partner, you'll receive some pretty cool stuff for your investment: Autographed books, DVD's, a shout-out in the book, and even a gourmet meal prepared in your very own kitchen for you and your friends by yours truly. But most importantly, you'll help thousands of other couples become better cooks.
Hopefully, we'll raise more than $4,000. That means we can print even more books.

Risks and challenges
Because this is the second Table for Two cookbook we don't foresee any challenges in either production or fulfillment. We have already worked with all of the folks involved and they're not only excited about participating in this project, they're also looking forward to future projects.
The only real risk? If we don't raise $4000 everyone gets their money back and we have to start again from scratch. However, the people I've discussed the project with are very excited and feel that it is very do-able.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
