I have the perfect starting point to help you with supper tonight! Browse through these dinner recipes for two to get started.

Whether you are looking for something romantic or celebrate an anniversary, these supper recipes for two should help you plan that perfect night tonight.

These dinner recipes can be scaled up easily to make more servings.

If you need someone to cook for, I suggest you start with my Engagement Chicken Pasta–it has been known to produce diamond rings! I have plenty of chicken thigh recipes that you can’t miss, especially my honey garlic chicken thighs. For an easy baked chicken thigh recipe, my Rosemary Lemon Chicken is so popular for many reasons!

My love is chicken thighs is clear, but I would never forget about chicken dinners for two that utilize chicken breasts. Personally, my husband and I only eat meat a few times each week, so I have lots of vegetarian meals here, too! Instant pot risotto is fully customizable with seasonal vegetables, and black bean burrito bowls are fully vegan.

Even small pots of soup can be found here; like instant pot tomato soup and Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana for two.

Tips for when cooking dinners for two:

  • buy meat in bulk, and freeze leftovers tightly wrapped
  • seek out small 8-ounce cans of tomatoes for cooking for two
  • if you buy fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil, etc.), use the search bar on the site to find other recipes that use the remaining fresh herbs
