Help me learn to cook/Cookbook recommendations

I’m spending a fortune on NYC takeout and want to start cooking. I know NOTHING. Like can't even cook an egg. So I’m wondering if you kind folks might suggest a) some basic resources on cooking fundamentals and b) some really easy vegetarian cookbooks. Thanks so much.

Should I get a cookbook on Kindle for iPad or stick with paperback?

I'm in my early twenties and new at cooking, but can follow directions so that's a start. I'm just wondering whether I should buy a kindle version of a cookbook or stick with the paperback. I have limited storage space, which makes a kindle version very appealing. On the other hand, slightest slickness of the finger might not mix well with flipping pages on an iPad, not that I'd be handling my paperback slick with meat juice or something either. Veteran homemakers/cooks/chefs/etc. what are your thoughts?

Help me rediscover a long lost cookbook

I would like to once again own a cookbook I used to enjoy. Problem is I don't know who it was by or what it was called. Yes, I know this is a long shot, everything I remember is contained within. [more inside]

What books discuss taste like a pro chef would?

Please recommend good books that discuss the theory of food taste and design—analyzing flavors and textures, figuring out pairings, that sort of thing. Either savory or dessert-centered would be fine. [more inside]

Simple vegetarian cookbooks?

Cookbook recs needed: I'm an amateur cook so I need simple recipes, it would be nice if the books worked from a common and not-too-large set of ingredients, and I like food that's garlicky, oniony, and/or spicy. Oh, and healthy is a plus but not required. Finally, I'm a vegetarian (not vegan).

My Birthday is coming up !

After 50 years of success, my Mom's favorite chocolate cake recipe is now failing to meet expectations. Betty Crocker blames Crisco, and Crisco denies blame. Not only do the cakes not rise like before, they tend to sag in the middle. It's a devil's food recipe from the original BC Cookbook, and she has been using the same ingredients forever. I calibrated the oven, and even watched her make one to insure it wasn't due to an error by a sometimes forgetful 84 year old baking Ninja. Any ideas on how Mom can get her Mojo back?

Recommend the perfect cookbook

If you could only cook recipes from one cookbook ever again, which cookbook would you choose? I'm looking to slim down my large, useless cookbook collection and instead invest in one or two that have lots of cookable, consistently good and useful recipes.
