My wife tells me she will not cook in our new Oliver
that we will be picking up in late September, so that chore will fall
to me. I am not opposed to learning to cook and have done some cooking at home and in an RV. She does not like to cook, at home or camping.
I would appreciate recommendations on one or two cookbooks that I could use to help me plan meals, shop, and cook. I would prefer simple recipes with not too many ingredients. I like to use fresh ingredients, and some spices, like onions, garlic, pepper, salt, and sugar. I don't want to have to keep a lot of other spices for cooking. Our refrigerator
is only a 5 cubic foot Norcold, so there will not be a lot of room for cold stuff. We will probably have to buy groceries at least two or three times per week while camping. We like healthy food but aren't health food nuts.
I like cooking on the gas burner, either in a saute pan or a pot. We will have a microwave/convection oven but will not always be hooked up to shore power. I don't want to spend more than about a half hour preparing and cooking our meals, unless it is only an occasional thing. I probably won't carry an outdoor grill because we will have to keep our weight
down and I don't like having to clean up a messy grill. We like Chinese food and I have wok that I enjoy using.
What cookbooks could some of you recommend for me, based on the above situations? If you recommend an electronic cookbook, I have a Mac, not a PC.
