My son is a recent stay at home dad with their new baby.
He has extremely limited cooking strengths
He can grill and boil water....
I want to get him a few cook books but I'm looking for
'Simple' easy to prepare meals (nothing microwave)
I just can't find any beginner cooks books that look like they
Won't insult him....

Any ideas on cook books?
Much thanks

Hi Nina,

I would recommend "America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook". Its a great book for beginners and each step is clearly explained. Also, have you considered a cookbook of crockpot meals? There are so many great crockpot recipes and the prep couldn't be more simple!

Happy Cooking,

I am an avid foodie....Raised by a southern mother, I have a broad base of cooking knowledge. I am not afraid to tell you I do not have the answer. In the kitchen I am adventurous as well as a traditionalist.


Life long, my mom taught me to cook as a very young child. I enjoy the art and it brings me peace to cook for family and friends.

Taught by three generations of amazing cooks. My dads family is Irish, my mom is from the south, I have been cooking my whole life.
