Imagine. You're just getting home from work. It's late. You're tired. You're hungry. You're craving something luxurious, yet easy to make; and perhaps you're only looking to prepare a meal for one (or two).

If you've ever found yourself in a similar situation, food and travel writer Kathy YL Chan has the perfect recipe for you: an elegant yet ridiculously simple recipe of crispy, seasoned duck breast-specifically, rich magret de canard-and a tender baby greens salad that could impress even the most refined food connoisseur. Salivating yet? Good. That makes two of us.

Another bonus: this recipe is so easy to pull off that you get from grocery store to dinner-ready on the table in 20 minutes. I read through the recipe once, and three weeks later I could still recall the short list of ingredients and the cooking directions without having to consult my iPhone. To top it off, it costs much less than you would think-under $20 to make dinner for two!-and it fed both my fiancé and me very well.

If you're interested in whipping this up for yourself, stop by our features page to save the recipe, or check it out in the teaser issue. Your tastebuds will thank you. The only difficult question will be figuring out what do with all that extra time you'll have freed up after dinner.
