Minimalist Cooking ebook by Meg Wolfe. This book has totally blown me away!
It covers the basics about setting up a simple, minimal kitchen that has everything you need but none of the gadgets you buy and never use and has nice recipes that even a dummy like me can follow--recipes that actually include meat!
Well, a lot of minimalist cookbooks are vegan, which is fine I guess but humans are omnivores and I like meat dishes!
I have made the no-knead bread, apple crisp, macaroni and cheese, roast vegetables and even fixed steaks by borrowing from her roast beef recipe. Everything turned out delicious and I haven't cooked so much in ages!

I have read a lot of cookbooks in my desire to become a decent cook, and this is one of two that actually gave me good all-around recipes that I can use that don't ask for crazy stuff! I don't know about you, but I get tired of cookbooks that are all about stuff I wouldn't eat in a million years!
