Behold: a manual that shows you how to shop for a three-course dinner for six and still go through the express checkout. This collection of dishes uses no more than a trio of ingredients. Gold cheats a little—each recipe has suggested “add-ons”—but she does teach the ABC’s of throwing together some good, basic fare. (Viking, $22.95)
