Need a cookbook recommendation

KitchenGeek | Dec 20, 2013 02:54 PM

I am hoping someone here has some recommendations for a cookbook or two for my daughter. I have been searching Amazon and other websites, but can't seem to find anything that works.

My daughter is mildly MR and on 100% disability, but she does live on her own in a small apartment, in a medium-sized city. She has a case manager that checks on her at least once a week, and we try to get by occasionally, but she does live over an hour away. She does OK, but she is limited what she can do for cooking utensils. She also has some palsy that has left her left arm with very limited ability, he hand can't grasp anything. Sharp knives and using the stove burners are out, but she does have a microwave and a toaster oven.

I'm trying to find a book of recipes that she can make on her own, as I'm sure she is getting sick of microwaved potatoes, rice, mac-n-cheese, and instant oatmeal. Her food stamps don't allow her to buy prepared foods, and we both agree that they are too expensive and often not very nutritious. She has a very nice grocery store within walking distance.

While greatly appreciated, please don't post recipes, she really needs the structure of a printed book, and doesn't have access to the Internet.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
