Lonely Planet, Rough Guide are both pretty good... then again I've only used them as back up, I like to sound out people on the spot once I arrive for some more original ideas, otherwise you end up on a kind of backpacker tourist tour...

Pretty much every supermarket sells pasta, cheese and wine - its just expensive that's all. Pasta (dried) is not so expensive, but imported wine and cheese are. Thai food is amongst the best in the world, if you are afraid of spicy, just ask for not spicy (mai pet). How are yu going to cook the supermarket ingredients? If you really need to eat American, then there vare lots of AMerican fast food places (McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, etc) - but yuk!

Daniel,

Just say "nitnoy' chili or Mai Pet and you should be fine. Or, if you really want to save $$$ find a market close by and you can buy already cooked foods including fish, chicken, pork along with rice [sticky, long grain etc] and all sorts of other dishes including curries, fruits and even sweets. They are usually 2/3 [or less] than what you would pay in a restaurant. Most restaurants aren't going to hit you with really spicy food but if in doubt ask a ferang or the waitress.
