A cookbook aimed at the food-loving single, Joe Yonan's Serve Yourself (2011 Ten Speed Press) includes more than 100 inventive, easy-to-make, and globally inspired recipes celebrating solo eating. Yonan shuns the notion that single life means starving, settling for takeout, or facing a fridge full of monotonous leftovers, and his delish dishes prove his point. Try a smoked trout sandwich (pictured above) or tapioca pudding the next time you find yourself dining for one.
