I'm looking for the ultimate cookbook for busy people with little cooking experience.
- ~30min per recipe (for someone who has barely cooked before, not for a professional chef).
- Alternatives for all ingredients: Use chili - don't have chili?, use paprika - don't have paprika?, use ...
- All recipes must be cookable in a poorly equipped kitchen.
- (Fast food like dishes preferred, but not a must).
I'm desperately looking for a cookbook that suits my needs for a long time. I have a poorly equipped kitchen and I don't have much time to buy ingredients or to cook. I don't want to be taught fishing, I just want to be given a fish.
I'm aware of Need suggestions for ABSOLUTE beginner's cookbook, but most of the recipes in the suggested books weren't easy enough for me.
The closest I got to my dream book was Real Simple Best Recipes: Easy, Delicious Meals, but it didn't provide any alternatives for ingredients, which prohibited me to cook many of the recipes. Also, the instructions were a little sparse.
