The fine print:

The recipes do NOT use processed foods, with the exception of The recipes DO use lots and lots of fresh, seasonal, and (we hope) local produce

Most recipes are designed for 2 servings, but are easily increased to 4... or 6.... or 8...
     Naturally, whether or not the serving size suits you depends on appetite, activity level, and all sorts of stuff we know nothing about.
