My daughter's friend gave her this book and Teens Cook: How to Cook What You Want to Eat when they were both 14. A year later, they have cooked almost everything in both books--by themselves. The authors provide clear directions and important tips. I've given both books as gifts several times. If only the girls cleaned the kitchen as well as they cook...

Teens Cook Dessert is one of the best cook books out there! I'm a teen myself (16 years old) and have read countless recipes and more cook books than I can count on both hands. This cook book is concise in its instructions, accurate in its baking times and pan sizes, has an amazingly wide range of delicious recipes of various difficulty, and includes helpful tips and fun facts scattered throughout. The one and only thing that I would include in this book is preparation times for the recipes (its rather annoying to begin a pudding and later realize halfway through that its going to take 5 hours to finish...). This book is appropriate for both the beginner and the seasoned kitchen veteran.

I bought this book (along with Teens Cook) as a gift for my two teenage cousins. Before wrapping the books, though, I spent some time looking through them. If the books had been around when I was a teen, I would have loved to have had them. As it is, I still may buy them for myself!

The book is filled with recipes that teens and young adults would actually want to eat, which is better than a lot of standard cookbooks. The pictures are great because they show every recipe.

I also enjoyed the casual tone of the book, since it is also written by teens, it is not condescending towards them. I look forward to more cookbooks from these two young women.

Gave this book to my 11 year old... great to have fresh baked goodies these past few weeks!
Wonderful book design, my daughter loves the funky "messy kitchen" images.
In one recipe my daughter and her friend did not understand clearly that they should mix the flour AND baking soda together first. They added the flour and after mixing with the wet ingredients added the soda. Some advanced baking knowledge and experience is needed.

I love cookbooks. I often just like to look through the pictures and imagine creating great dishes from them. And, as far as pictures, this book is fantastic. The pictures are wonderful! As many teens may just be starting to cook, pictures are very important for a cookbook as they serve to inspire them. But, the recipes themselves just are not that good, nor are they very "different' or unusual. They are basic recipes that any kid could find online by going to Google and typing in a few words. And, on Google, you might even get reviews on the recipes or changes or additions to help you narrow your choice to a better recipe. Anyways, not to diss on this Cookbook, but other than the pictures, this is not a great cookbook as it is so basic. But, if you are wanting to inspire and start off a beginner cook with basic recipes, this may be a good starter cookbook.

I got this book from the library when I was thirteen, and tried a few recipes. They were great! Super easy, original and GREAT tasting!!!
Now, four years later I still love this book. I would highly reccomend it to ANYONE and will be giving copies to many of my friends, young and old alike. Even my mother, who is an amazing cook, loves this book! If I only had one dessert cookbook, this would be it (for a regular cookbook, I'd take Teens Cook by the same authors). These books are essential to any kitchen. They have clear instructions, interesting facts, tips, and shortcuts. They are fun and funny. The recipes are amazing. They look fantastic and taste even better. Everytime I've made a dish (either from this or their other book, teens cook) it has been gobbled down with people begging to know where I got the recipe!
This book is amazing!
~ A teenager

I sent the two books to my granddaughter and she is thrilled with them. She has moved into her own apt. and is learning to cook. These are easy to read and fun.

We bought this for my 10 year old daughter. The first recipe she tried was the souffle. She needed a little help (like putting it in the oven), but made it completely on her own. Perfect! Angel food cake from scratch - perfect. Cookies, cakes, crepes, etc. All perfect. I wish they wrote more books!
