Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–Sisters Megan and Jill Carle love to cook, both from recipes and experimenting with what's on hand. When they eat something they love in a restaurant, they try to re-create it at home. If they find a complicated recipe, they fearlessly "take shortcuts that would probably give a chef hives." The result of their culinary passion is this appealing mix of 85 diverse recipes ranging from comfort food to sushi. The six sections include traditional American cuisine, as well as recipes for German, Chinese, and Mexican dishes. Basic cooking instruction is incorporated into the recipes themselves as well as in the sidebars sprinkled liberally throughout. The gently wry introductions for each recipe offer keen glimpses into the siblings' personalities and relationship, adding to the intimacy and warmth of this cookbook. Megan, a vegetarian, offers advice on adapting many of the recipes to her diet. "Kitchen Disasters" offer amusing accounts of mistakes made by the Carles or their relatives, complete with explanations of exactly why things went awry. The clear instructions and striking, full-color photos will equip teen chefs to undertake their own adventures, but the reliance on butter, cream, mayonnaise, cheese, and other high-fat ingredients is a drawback for those seeking a healthy diet. Evelyn Raab's Clueless in the Kitchen (Firefly, 1998) is a far more extensive collection of recipes that also includes more basic information about equipment, shopping, and food preparation.–Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS

I purchased this book for my 11 year old daughter to help cultivate her growing interest in cooking and to inspire her to broaden her palate and eat healthier. I'd say it has accomplished both objectives. Most of the recipes she can prepare herself with very little help from me so she feels very independent and is enjoying being an active participant in our family meal planning. She is so happy about being in the kitchen and cooking she actually enjoys doing the dishes too!!

Great book for teens who don't know how to make anything and love to eat or teens who think they know how to make it all. The books s just as it's sub-title, "how to cook what you want to eat." It has great recipe alternatives to eating in instead of dining out--and learning something new while you're at it!

Receipes include sections of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, desserts. Most food that you go out to eat, you can find the receipe in here!

My 12 year old pre-teenage son (who is already pretty handy in the kitchen) found this at our local library and has been going on and on and on about all the neat recipes and how easy they were for him to understand. He asked if he could start cooking some dinners for our family (using these recipes). I was like, "Uuuggh...Okay, I'll let you. If you promise to clean up." (You can never look anxious to a teen - or it ruins their fun. But inside I was doing a cart wheel - I do not enjoy cooking.) I looked through the book myself. The recipes look yummy and simple and there are all kinds of tips along the way. I like the recipes because all of the ingredients appear to be things that I can pick up at our local market. I'm buying my own copy and will buy more as gifts for teens.
UPDATE: The son I mentioned (above) is now turning seventeen and he and his sister and younger brother still turn to these books (same authors) for dinner and desserts. They are great!

I LOVE this book! As a college student living in her first apartment, I find these recipes so easy and fun. I even got my roommates to start cooking too. Also, I've found this book is a great move-in gift for my fellow students learning how to live on their own. What better way to help out a college student then helping them forgo pizza everyday?!

My daughter received this book and we both love it. The entree recipes provide clear directions and come with side-dish suggestions and general cooking tips. Any teen who wants to move cooking skills beyond the microwave should own this book and the partner book Teens Cook Dessert. The recipes in both are delish!

Thought there would be simple recipes where my daughter could simply grab things out the frig to create; however, these are full-out recipes that you would find on Food Network (i.e. one recipe required 7 gourmet ingredients). Returned it.
