There are also some cookbooks for one or two. I just got Going Solo in the Kitchen, but there are others. I made soup this weekend, halved the recipe and am eating it for lunch this week.
I'm learning to "throw" meals together meaning not necessarily a recipe. I'll potatoes and a meat. If I do a bit extra there's enough for lunch the next day. Mostly, I just experimented with doing less and modifying recipes.

Check out Hungry Girl also. There's a team on here, you can subscribe to her newsletter at: www.hungry-girl.com/ and she has some great cookbooks. Most of her recipes are for one or two and they are healthy and nutritious.

I recently was married on June 5, 2010 and now I need to cook for me and my husband. The problem is that I always make more than we eat and we have too much left over. I'm not sure how to cook for two. Can someone please give me some pointers?
