Recommend a cookbook for a VERY novice cook?

Hey all,

I'm looking for a cookbook (recipe book? instructor book?) for a friend as a gift. This person has not been around the kitchen much, and although likes cooking, is prone to following the instruction to the dot (in both a good way and the bad -- she once burnt chili because i told her to stir about once every 5-10 minutes, and she timed herself for 7.5, and as the liquid reduced...)

Anyway. I want her to expand her repetoire of recipes, something fun, easy, simple (we're both college students), and a good introduction to cooking.


Want to stay up to date with this post?
