Compiling fabulous cookbook for bridal shower

So I'm throwing a friend's bridal shower in a couple of weeks and I've decided to wrangle a cookbook for her. She loves to cook and bake but is a serious novice, especially in the baking department. She loves spicy flavors so I was hoping you SE geniuses have some favorite recipes you could throw my way?

And is the way to a man's heart really through his stomach?
