This step-by-step guide provides wonderful detailed recipes that teens will be tempted to create on their own. Each recipe includes a personal anecdote that will inspire the reader to read this book as a story. Megan and Jill compiled family recipes as well as others they created just for this book. Kitchen shortcut tips, vocabulary sidebars, and numerous color illustrations provide additional information that enables even the novice baker to be successful. The recipes include Triple Chocolate Biscotti, Peach Clafouti, Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches, Chocolate Eclairs, Fresh Berry Pie, Banana Spring Rolls with Cinnamon-Caramel Sauce, and many more mouthwatering treats. This book is a sequel to Teens Cook." How to Cook What You Want to Eat. Jill and Megan are the daughters of Judi Carle, who has collaborated on more than 20 cookbooks and who has obviously inspired her daughters. This is a great book for beginning cooks.
