The Written Review: The first meal of the day starts here. Ahhh! What an absolutely fun introduction to cooking! This handy little guide begins with the fundamentals - how to prepare your kitchen, what dangers to be aware of and the essential cooking techniques (i.e. broiling vs boiling, knife skills and more). Cooking is a science, and by using the measurements specified in the recipe, you will get consistent results. From there, we went meal-by-meal starting with breakfast to family meals to deserts - with a brief dabbling in snacks/sides and soups/salads. The recipes were ordered based on complexity with each section begins with the simple basics and steadily get more advanced. Cooking can be a creative outlet, and the reward is a delicious meal... For example, the breakfast section begins with bacon and eggs and ends with homemade peanut butter and jelly hand pies. Family meals go from sloppy Joes to Priazzo and homemade chicken pot pies. I absolutely loved the variety in the recipes and how they employ a several different skills and methods - it provides a surprisingly comprehensive handbook to practice and perfect your techniques. The recipes all look delicious and even the complex ones seem very doable. My favorite section was the Solo Meals! It's your favorite foods created on a smaller scale, so you don't have to sacrifice options when you're dining alone. There were SO MANY TIMES when I was a teen that I wanted to cook something...but I didn't want to put the time and effort to make a meal for the entire family. The Solo Meal section had a huge assortment of recipes - from quesadillas to beef stroganoff to microwave egg fried rice to Parmesan-crusted pork chops - which is great for a college student armed with a microwave and minimum fridge space. I strongly feel that it isn't just for teens - its for everyone who feels a little apprehensive in the kitchen (and even for those who are looking for fun, new recipes!). All in all - this was a hugely fun book. I cannot WAIT to try out more of these recipes on my own!

What I love about this book is that it is not just for teens, it is for people who have rarely or never cooked before. The recipes are simple and straightforward and with all the helpful hints and explanations/photos in the beginning and throughout the book, you will be a pro cook/chef in no time flat. I may even give my sister who (the one who made blue soup before Bridget Jones made it famous) as she needs to stop eating foods (packaged) and eating ingredients (fresh things). As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "🙏-ed Social Influencer Millennials/#BachelorNation survivors/etc. " on Instagram and Twitter... Get a real job, people!) so let's give it 🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁 This book is also cross reviewed at http://www.facebook.com/janetsbookcorner AND will be on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com after its release date.

I chose to review this cookbook and my opinion is freely given. This cookbook is a great primer for beginners in the kitchen. The author starts out with a section on how to prepare like a chef, giving insight into everything from essential tools to safety tips. The next section, how to cook like a chef, covers different cooking terminology, reading a recipe, measuring, mixing, knife skills, and cooking. The recipe chapters are next, filled with great beginning dishes that more experienced cooks will recognize. I have listed the different sections below with some of the recipes that best represent this cookbook. Breakfast: Fried Egg; Omelet; Banana Bread; Breakfast Tacos Snacks and Sides: Nachos; Homemade Salsa; Baked Potatoes; Coleslaw; Potatoes au Gratin Soups and Salads: Chicken Soup; Vegetarian Chili; Macaroni Salad; Beef Taco Layer Salad Solo Meals: Grilled Cheese Sandwich; Microwave Egg Fried Rice; Black Bean Burgers Family Meals: Mustard and Maple-Glazed Chicken; Easy Lasagna; Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Desserts: Lemon Ice; Banana Cream Pie; Brownies Because this cookbook is supposed to be for newcomers to the kitchen, I wish that there were more photographs of the finished dishes. Many of the recipes are foods that teens will be familiar with, but others would benefit from a visual. There is a good mixture of recipes, from breakfast to dessert, all with clear instructions. I would recommend The How-To Cookbook for Teens: 100 Easy Recipes to Learn the Basics for the target audience, although anyone new to the kitchen will learn valuable tips and great basic dishes.

    The How-To Cookbook for Teens includes easy recipes with accessible ingredients perfect for a beginning home cook. The best thing about the cookbook is that required ingredients are common and most teens would be able to source the required materials from their home or be able to get the ingredients from a food bank. This cookbook includes two especially useful chapters that are there to specifically engage a teen audience; solo meals and family meals.

The best thing about the cookbook is that required ingredients are common and most teens would be able to source the required materials from their home or be able to get the ingredients from a food bank. This cookbook includes two especially useful chapters that are there to specifically engage a teen audience; solo meals and family meals. This makes the book usable for older teens who may be embarking on college soon or teens who must be self-reliant at home and for teens that want to help prepare meals for their whole family. Unfortunately, The How-To Cookbook for Teens is lacking the production quality of most cookbooks. There are few pictures of completed recipes and the pages do not have the glossy finish that can be found in most cookbooks. Since we eat with our eyes first the lack of images may be a barrier for some teens. Although the book does include images in the section on how to hold and knife and to show the different ways to chop so they did prioritize images when they were truly needed. Overall, the cookbook is a great starting point for teens that are interested in cooking or who have found themselves cooking by necessity.

    The author of this book is blogger and mother. She offers up 100 different recipes to help new cooks learn the basics. She starts by going over everything you need to know about cooking--tools and devices, tips and tricks, definitions, types of cuts, knife skills, even how to read a recipe and more. The recipes are pretty standard, and she supplements them with a variety of tips.

The recipes are pretty standard, and she supplements them with a variety of tips. One thing that stood out to me was that, in the beginning, she talks about the importance of cleaning, but instead of going into detail with something like what to do when you drain your beef, she just says, "Drain and safely discard the grease." For a total beginner, that may be unclear. Overall, it's a pretty good book, but there's nothing that really sets it apart from other beginner cookbooks. I'd recommend this as a gift for a young person who hasn't had much experience cooking but is interested in exploring it further. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not influence my review.

    This is a great place to start not just for teens but young adults who are just starting to learn how to actually cook. The recipes range from really simple to more challenging but not hard. I love how detailed the book gets into explaining the utensils needed, cooking terms, ingredients, etc. A really great well-rounded book. Love it! I'm thinking about ordering myself a physical copy so I can flip through when I'm in the kitchen.

    This is a perfect title for this moment.  If you are all cooped up at home and know a teen who could use an activity (and feed you), this one is worth a look.  It also is a useful resource for anyone who is trying to learn to prepare a meal.  The book includes 100 recipes divided into categories including Breakfast, Snacks and Sides, Soups and Salads, Solo Meals and Family Meals.  Some examples from the Family Meals section are Mustard and Maple Glazed Chicken, Easy Chicken Tetrazzini and Homemad This is a perfect title for this moment.  If you are all cooped up at home and know a teen who could use an activity (and feed you), this one is worth a look.  It also is a useful resource for anyone who is trying to learn to prepare a meal.  The book includes 100 recipes divided into categories including Breakfast, Snacks and Sides, Soups and Salads, Solo Meals and Family Meals.  Some examples from the Family Meals section are Mustard and Maple Glazed Chicken, Easy Chicken Tetrazzini and Homemade Chicken Pot Pie.  At the other end of the day, a few of the breakfast recipes include Banana Brea, Breakfast Tacos and a Green Chile Casserole. The cookbook has lots of photographs and the directions are easy to follow.  I call this one a winner! Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.

    My son really liked looking through this cookbook and getting ideas of what to try to learn to cook during this pandemic. He's a picky eater, but this had recipes that appealed to him and were easy enough for his pre-teen skills to do with minimal supervision or help. A handy book for homes with teens who are about to fly the coop and need to learn the basics. Get this one, and use it as a guide during this quarantine to teach them well.

    This Cookbook is SO easy to use and understand. I am not a teen myself, but I am a beginner cook. These recipes were easy to understand and they are "basic" enough that many picky eaters would be happy. This book covers everything from boiling an egg to simmering Zuppa Toscana (which you need to make ASAP if you have never had). This is a great book for teens and beginner cooks alike.
