My sister asked for a cookbook for Christmas, with the following requirements: "I'd like a cookbook with vegetarian or pescatarian recipes that do not take very long to prep and don't have a ton of ingredients I'd have to buy. Lots of ingredients are fine if they are in the pantry, just not a ton of fresh ingredients because the planning ahead part is what I don't like. Ideally the recipes wouldn't take too long to make so I could do it after work."
Our cookbook maven Marian suggested Vegetable Literacy, The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, and/or The Art of Simple Food I/II, so those are all contenders. Anything else I should consider?
