Cooking for Couples Fanatic

Growing up in a food-obsessed family in the South and spending a lot of time in her Aunt Rose’s restaurant as a child, Christina was destined to be a fantastic cook. Now married and living and working in Missouri with her husband, she mostly cooks for two and (like all of us) has a sweet tooth that needs indulging after dinner. After becoming frustrated with the lack of recipes made for two, especially in the dessert category, she took matters into her own hands and started her blog, Dessert for Two, to share how she takes Southern classics (and a few surprises) and turns them into recipes that are perfect for just a few people.
