Default Any recommenddations for my first all grain batch?

I did my first 2 partial grain batches this weekend and found it to be straight forward enough to want to try an all grain batch. I am using a 5 gallon rubber maid insulated container for the mashing. I am looking to do a 2.5 to 3 gallon recipe for a simple amber ale or wheat ale without having too much hop taste for my swmbo. Thus, if anyone has any recipe recommendations for a first try at all grain I would love to read them. There is no local HBS in my city but a few beer places do sell basic grain ingredients so I can't get anything too elaborate. I will have a 3 gallon carboy to use as a secondary.

Thanks...

Here's one I've done. I flatter myself it's pretty good. I'm in the same boat as you: I do mainly partial-mashes or small batches.

0.75 oz. Willamette Pellet 5.00 30.3 First WH

Yeast

DCL Yeast US-05 SafAle US Ale


If you can't get Special B, sub 120L Crystal. Amber needs a broad spectrum of Crystal-malt flavors to be American Amber Ale.

Cascades make a great hops variety for this, too. Makes the beer immediately "American". First Wort Hopping (FWH) provides smooth bitterness and a generous helping of flavor. To use FWH, add that charge when you first start running off wort into the kettle, before beginning the boil.

Good luck!

Brew whatever style you are most familiar with drinking. That way you can tell better how good or bad it is.
