I like Lorna Sass's Short-Cut Vegetarian: Great Taste in No Time.

We're not vegetarians but we don't have to have meat each meal. (BF was vegetarian for 8 years, but I like pork too much, mostly as seasoning but occasionally fried pork chops.)

Anyway, the recipes I've tried from here are quick and tasty. It is also a thin book.

Not having meat as a major ingredient brings down meal cost, but buying organic produce pulls it up. We buy canned and frozen goods on sale and produce in season.

Another plus is the shocked expression on guests' faces when you say the dish you made is from Lorna Sass followed by the relieved giggles all around after you explain.

The two that we use the most are Good Housekeeping and Better Homes and Gardens (70s and early 80s versions).
I have some of my MILs cookbooks from the 30s ... those are a hoot.
