Best books / web sites for a real newbie of a cook?

My son, age 19 and just moved into his first college apartment, called me last night and asked for some simple recipes. He has grown up in a house that values a good meal but had never expressed any interest in learning how to fix food for himself until necessity struck! I emailed him a few quick recipes but was wondering if anyone could recommend good books or web sites for a true novice cook! THANKS.
