This is one of the best cookbooks ever and has everything from simple to complicated. I've seen used copies for only $5. Lots of bulk meals, as well as quick under 15 min meals.

The New Basics:

Cooking for Geeks:

These two books really try to explain what is going on with each recipe, and why things are done a certain way. I learn every time I cook with them. Both of these also have sections on how to set up a kitchen (where to find items, where to spend your $$) in a smart way. Really useful if you're new to cooking, or just looking to upgrade your gear.

Well, if you happen to find yourself in that situation (ricotta, avocado, pesto) you should have staples on hand. That's part of the reading thing. You can read a recipe off the internet sure. Or you can read a ookbook (my suggestion), and develop the skill through reading. And if you have said ingredients, make some calzones. Pizza dough is one of the easiest doughs, and the ingredients you described could go into a variety of variations.

You are absolutely right that it is not a science everyone can master. But often times it is absolutely a science that can be improved upon. You simply need to read the right thing.

This is a great cookbook for a lot of recipes and learning the basics!

My dad also bought this one for me and my husband, and everything I've tried has come out great. I also recommend America's Test Kitchen as a show.

And as a bonus, if you're into Japanese food this YouTube channel is the business.

Other than that, you'd be surprised at how many foods come with recipes on the package. They're usually pretty good.

I suggest getting The New Basics Cookbook by Sheila Lukins and Julie Rosso and spending some time with it. It's very readable, and there's not a bad recipe in the book. It taught me a lot.
