I use one light source for food, whether it is man-made or sunlight. Tw light sources will make your food look flat. If you have too much contrast, use a piece of white paper taped to cardboard to reflect light from opposite your light source.
I took this picture with a Canon PowerShot P&S camera, using a table lamp and a kitchen trash bag as my light source.
