    Good pictures I usually go for cookbooks aimed towards younger readers because of the basic ingredients and ease in constructing the recipe, this was actually a step up from most of those because the authors have been helping in the kitchen most of their lives A great example of how getting kids to help prepare meals can help broaden their tastes.

    I got this book as a Christmas present from my friend Amy a few years ago and Ive only recently re discovered it Boy, am I glad that I did.This is by far the easiest cookbook that I have ever used in my life I mean, I like to cook and bake, especially for larger crowds, but this book makes it so easy to make a one person meal too It goes over breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, soups, salads, family meals, and individual meals Honestly, it does it all plus it has both your comfort favourite I got this book as a Christmas present from my friend Amy a few years ago and I ve only recently re discovered it Boy, am I glad that I did.This is by far the easiest cookbook that I have ever used in my life I mean, I like to cook and bake, especially for larger crowds, but this book makes it so easy to make a one person meal too It goes over breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, soups, salads, family meals, and individual meals Honestly, it does it all plus it has both your comfort favourite foods like mac and cheese along with foods that I would never even consider like vegetable maki rolls What I really like about this book is how user friendly it is and how easy they make it so that you can take a recipe and substitute a lot of ingredients My favourite is the seven layer bars which I think I ve gotten up to over 10 layers which I also make into just s s bars and other things Seriously, this recipe is gold I used it to bribe two guy friends of mine to help me move out of my last apartment meaning that the only payment they got was this baked deliciousness And one of them got a case of beer But still, that is the power of these bars Though they can also put you into a diabetic shock, so be careful what you put in them As far as cookbooks go, this is a 10 10 for me Aside from the cream cheese brownies, I ve never had a failed recipe from this book though I was able to turn those brownies into a different desert which was even better So if it s your first time at college, or you re newly on your own, or if you just want some really easy recipes to make for your family, this is a great book to pick up In fact, I want to get my hands on the other ones that these girls have done Except for maybe the vegetarian one

    I couldn t decide how to rate this book It has pictures for every recipe, which is a total bonus for me It also had a few tips and notes and the teens themselves are too funny So it was enjoyable in that aspect.As for the recipes, they weren t what I was expecting This could be for teens, but it would be for teens who like to cook already or have shown a deep interest I thought it would be some teen simple friendly food that would be a cinch to make for them to throw together dinnersome I couldn t decide how to rate this book It has pictures for every recipe, which is a total bonus for me It also had a few tips and notes and the teens themselves are too funny So it was enjoyable in that aspect.As for the recipes, they weren t what I was expecting This could be for teens, but it would be for teens who like to cook already or have shown a deep interest I thought it would be some teen simple friendly food that would be a cinch to make for them to throw together dinnersome boxed or canned items, some additional ingredients, a little mixing, and voila Instead, this has lots of recipes from all over the food spectrum from sloppy joes to encrusted fish and all basically from scratch It has you mincing garlic, not using garlic powder or jarred garlic And those sloppy joes are from scratchit s not how to make sloppy joes with help from a can I just think about when I was a teen and that I wouldn t have eaten a lot of this food because it would have been very strange to me, and all the ingredients and process would have intimidated me That is why I didn t give it 5 stars, because I think the title is a bit misleading for the recipe content

    I picked this one up several years ago for my kids Other than being the happy recipient of peanut butter cookies and a bit of a skim through, I didn t really remember much about the recipes, but I thought I d take a closer look, since we re in a bit of a budget crunch right now and I thought it might help to have the kids participate in trying to cut the grocery bill.What I found were some very simple, but quite yummy, recipes Not only will they not break the bank, but most of my kids will eat I picked this one up several years ago for my kids Other than being the happy recipient of peanut butter cookies and a bit of a skim through, I didn t really remember much about the recipes, but I thought I d take a closer look, since we re in a bit of a budget crunch right now and I thought it might help to have the kids participate in trying to cut the grocery bill.What I found were some very simple, but quite yummy, recipes Not only will they not break the bank, but most of my kids will eat them, which is fairly amazing, considering how picky they can be The kids range in age from 12 to nearly 21 three weeks from tomorrow and the oldest two have Asperger s syndrome, so sometimes textural issues come into play Add in the fact that 3 of them are vegetarian, and it can be interesting trying to find dishes that will please all of them at once This book manages to do that quite a bit of the time.The directions are simple enough that my 12yo can follow them, yet not so simple that my 17yo feels talked down to Oh, and if you get a chance to check it out, make the potato skins You ll really be glad you did

    On behalf of my 3 kids I give this book 5 stars They love the range of recipes from salads, to main meals like fried rice and Mexican lasagna, to desserts even a chapter on Meals for One I don t know if it s the recipes written by teens for teens, the photos and layout, selection of recipes, or maybe it s just the whole package they feel empowered to cook what s in this book and I ll all about that

    These teens are better cooks than I am at 40 However, the instructions are extra clear, with lots of side notes about what techniques are, which would make it a good first cookbook Also, one of the two is vegetarian, so there are veg friendly versions of almost all the recipes Also, the dinner for one chapter is useful.
