Cookbook recommendations to encourage a man to cook?

I usually do the cooking in this couple- however, the other half (who has previously shown no interest in cooking at all) has found some success in recent attempts in the kitchen. I think our joining a CSA and my starting a vegetable garden at home has made him more appreciative of ingredients and preparing them correctly.

I'd like to get him a cookbook that will encourage him to explore the kitchen more. I have a substantial collection, but I think he assumes that just because they are mine, they must be difficult. Know of anything with good, solid recipes that are simple but have a huge payoff in terms of flavor and pizzazz? It would be nice if he could do one recipe and send his mom a picture to which she would reply, "YOU made that?"

Skill level: He does 3 things well: grill a steak, make an omelette, and pasta carbonara.
