I have found America's Test Kitchen TV series to be outstanding! (As well as their cookbooks.) Seaon 8 containes 26 TV episodes which give you recipes like "Pasta & Tomatoes Reimagined," "Favorite Slow-Cooker Classics," and "Rainey Day BBQ Pork Chop." They provide step-by-step instructions. Perhaps the most outstanding thing about their recipes is that they may cook a recipe 30 times, a number of ways, until they get it perfect.
