Actually, I think there really is a cooking for dummies book out there and if it is anything like the rest of them it is pretty good.
I never really had to learn from a book about cooking. I grew up in a house where you either learned to cook or you didn't eat.
Cooking light magazine has some good recipes in it. There was also a recent Muscle & Fitness magazine with a section on high protein meals for under $5. It has a woman in a green and yellow bikini on the front. Sorry, but I can't remember much more than that.
Oh, I just remembered a really good one. It's called the Human Fuel Cookbook from Health For Life. Great book. It's got instructions and some good recipes. you can check it out here: http://www.healthforlife.com/html/hfcook.htm
