Write your own family recipes. Out them into a binder that can be added to. Create a family cookbook. It can be added to for generations.

Anything by Jacques Pepin. He teaches cooking so his recipes are easy to follow and thorough.

Any of Mark Bittman's How To Cook Everything books. The recipes don't contain a lot of assumptions that can trip up inexperienced cooks.

The "How to Cook Everything" app is great too - lots of recipes, instructions are clearly explained, and there are built-in timers you can activate for every timed task (helpful if you're cooking multiple dishes at once).
