Second that on Sarbar's book, plus she's got a new book coming out, hopefully soon.
In addition you can probably find some other recipes that are adaptable to this easy form of preparation, including some online, such as http://www.ultralight-hiking.com/recipes.html#anchor365566
Some of the simplest solutions aren't much in the way of "recipes", just using boil-in-bag techniques on things you can buy in a grocery store, such as Idahoan brand mashed potatos, Lipton (now Knorr) sides, Top Ramen, etc, adding protein and/or olive oil or whatever else you're inclined to.
I.e., you don't necessarily have to buy a food dryer and spend time/energy making meals in order to appreciate the simplicity of the approach. You might *want* to do so, especially if you want to be able to control the ingredients (sodium intake, alergies, whatever), but it can be dead simple.
If "simple" appeals to you, do a web search to find what thru-hikers of various trails eat. You'll run into some discussions on this site, such as http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/forums/thread_display.html?forum_thread_id=11713
and hopefully other ideas. Long distance hikers have quite a wide variety of things they like to eat, but they're typically putting things together on the fly from grocery stores --- i.e., keeping it simple. And a typical one-person thru-hiker portion is probably about right as a two person meal for folks who aren't burning calories at the same rate!
