I'm only 23, so I would imagine that I will qualify as a "young person", but some of the recipes were so basic that they probably shouldn't have been included. However, that being said, there are a few that are worthy of being included in our "rotation".
I like the fact that she is increasing Celiac awareness and that she provides bonus information. I just wish that there were some juicier recipes in there!
