The Joy of Cooking--beginner to intermediate. This is a comprehensive cookbook. It covers everything from appetizers to desserts, including drinks (cocktails and after dinner coffees). The only problem with this cookbook is that ingredients are listed as you will need them, rather than at the top of the recipe, so you have to read the recipe before you start to cook.
The Silver Palate--intermediate to difficult. Again, this covers all courses, but assumes you know cooking terms like saute, braise,etc, and some recipes call for ingredients that may be hard to find.
The Art of French Cooking--beginner to intermediate. Focuses mostly on main dishes. Very easy to understand.
The Moosewood Cookbook--beginner to advanced. An excellent source for vegetarian recipes. Very clear instructions,
Moosewood Low Fat Favorites--as above, but written for people who need to be on a low-fat diet.
Hope this helps. Bon Appetit!

if you want a large waistline and a high amount of body fat that will do it. there is a direct correlation between the amount of body fat that a person has with the glycemic load of the carbohydrates in the diet. a diet high in low GI carbs will result in a lean body. a diet high in high GI carbs will result in excess body fat. this has been proven by medical study and real world results time and time again. bread and pasta are processed carbs. humans are designed to ingest all natural foods.
you have basically described the typical american diet and is a main reason why 60% of the adults in the US are overweight and more enter obesity daily.
Any cookbook put out by Taste of home. Includes recipes for all sections, and I would rate the recipes difficulty at intermediate.

The Vegetarian Epicure -- Anna Thomas
The Art of Vegetarian Cookery -- Betty Wason
The Best 125 Meatless Main Dishes -- Toomay/Geiskopf-Hadler
and anything by Deborah Madison or Rose Elliot.
But be aware that changing to a vegetarian diet is not what you need to do to lose weight. Trust me, I've been one for decades and still have to battle a weight problem. You need to take in fewer calories and up the exercise you get. That's all that works, not giving up meat and fish. But you can do it! Check with your doctor for a possible diet plan, have him refer you to a nutritionist or dietary specialist and you'll lose the weight.
Good luck to you!
