2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A. Jacobs VINE VOICE on October 28, 2011
Format: Paperback
When author T.K. Richardson contacted me about her next book releasing for review, I never expected it to be a cookbook! She knew I had teens at home, but she had no idea I am a lousy cook. If the instructions aren't on the box or if I can't order it over the phone, then my family suffers through cereal for dinner. Yes, I am that bad and I loathe cooking! So when she explained that it is a recipe book geared towards the teens I was all for it. I mean, come on! If I could teach my teenager to cook through a cookbook, then I would no longer need to do that cooking chore. Well, I know I would have to do it, but that sounded good didn't it?

I was so surprised to find that the cookbook is set up nicely. Not only are the dishes separated by meal time and such, but it also includes what utensils will be needed along with the ingredients. No more searching for which pot to use or what baking dish. Each recipe is explained clearly so that even the younger cook could understand them. Now I picked an easy recipe to see how well a teen could accomplish it -- and lets face it, I needed to start out easy! So I picked the Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwiches. They are pretty self explanatory but I forced myself to follow the recipe as if I have never made one before. I found it easy to follow and it tasted heavenly.

Another thing that I enjoyed about the cookbook is that all of the recipes are easy and can be great for after school. Tons of the recipes would be great for snacks or picnics for the weekend. If you are cooking challenged like myself, then this is a great beginner cookbook. Not only will you learn to cook some fabulous dishes, but they are great for you to prepare with your children as well. Great for family time and bonding!

Format: Paperback
"Simmer: Recipes for the Teen Palate" by T.K. Richardson is a cookbook aimed at teenagers as a way for them to get excited about making their own meals instead of heading out for fast food. The author covers safety in the kitchen, common ingredients, and tools that are needed to make any of the recipes. In the main course section, the teenager can learn to cook bacon cheese burgers, deep fried burritos, and chicken cacciatore. For side dishes, snacks and sandwiches, there are recipes for jalapeno pigs in a blanket, pizza poppers, and wide French fries. The author also covers breakfasts with recipes such as crispy fried eggs, banana nut pancakes, and sausage alfredo quiche. And last, but not least, the dessert section where the teenager can learn to cook strawberry sweet cake, chocolate cream pie and pineapple lime delight!

This is a quaint cookbook with easy to follow directions that won't overwhelm the new teenage cook. All recipes have a list of ingredients, what kitchen tools that will be used (skillet, spatula, measuring cups) and step by step directions. My only complaint is that it doesn't have pictures. For me, seeing what the end product should look like helps me cook better. Also, when flipping through the book for a recipe, a lot of times seeing a picture of something yummy will help make up my mind. I also like it when the author leaves a blurb talking about why they included the recipe and what makes it so good.

This book is a good cookbook for any person (teenager or adult) who may not feel really comfortable in the kitchen. With the step by step instructions and the list of tools needed, it is almost foolproof. The author also notes in the table of contents which items are vegetarian.

**This book was received for free through Goodreads First Reads. That in no way influenced my review.**
