Overview

Cooking for teens, like finding the perfect gift for teen boys and girls, is almost impossible. Teenagers like what they like, and they will only eat what they like. But instead of causing mealtime strife, now they can learn to cook those foods themselves. With over 75 delicious recipes for meals at all times of the day—breakfast, snacks, sides, dinners, and dessert, too—TEENS COOK is a guide to everything teenagers (and tweens) need to learn about conquering the kitchen without accidentally setting the house on fire. Written by teens and for teens in easy-to-follow instructions, authors Megan and Jill Carle give young readers advice on how to maneuver their kitchen in a language they’ll understand (and actually listen to). The Carle sisters pass on their knowledge of how to decipher culinary vocabulary, understand kitchen chemistry (why stuff goes right and wrong when cooking), adapt recipes to certain dietary restrictions (like vegetarianism), and avoid all sorts of possible kitchen disasters. TEENS COOK is not only a fantastic teen gift—it’s the perfect cookbook to inspire young adults to take interest in their diets, and empower them to try a new and tasty hobby.

    Easy, Mouth watering fun

    Whether you're a teen or adult, this book is one of the best. Simple recipes that taste amazing- for teens it's a way to impress the friends for adults, it's a way to eat something wholesome for once in a world where work and family absorb your time. I first heard of this book when my editor from the Florida Today asked me to review it. For the review I made the Roman Apple Crumb cake and Baked Potato Soup. Both were amazing but now I can say after owning the book myself, practically every single recipe is incredible. Buy it for yourself or for your kids. It's a great way to learn together as it provides fun facts and how-to tips for the culinary arts.

    delicious recipes!

    I purchased this book myself when i was 14. I was on an odd cooking binge and this book really surprised me. Now 20, I appreciate how mature these recipes are, they are not your normal "teen pleasing" recipes, they actually have "real" food and "real" flavor! there is a creme brulee recipe in the desert section and it is amazing! The first time i made the dish it turned out perfect! same with the cinnamon roll recipe! overall a great buy for all ages, not just teens.

    Great Recipes

    This is a great book for experts and beginners alike. It gives helpful hints for those who are just learning and has yummy recipes for those who already know their way around the kitchen. It makes a good present for people who love food but you don't know how well they cook.

    I couldn't stop cooking

    I'm 16 and I got this a year ago from the library. All through the 2-3 weeks I had it, I was continually making food. (all the while being careful not to ruin the book since it was from the library, but if it got dirty, no biggie. I mean, how can a library expect COOKBOOKS to stay clean if people use them?) Anyway, I missed the book so much I decided I needed to have it, and I've told my parents that when I go to college, I want the College Cooking book Megan and Jill wrote:)
