I’m excited to share I wrote a cookbook: The How-To Cookbook for Teens will help you learn the basics of cooking and baking while having fun creating incredible meals (and memories) from scratch.
Long before this blog, I was cooking.
You don’t think much about it until you’re the one responsible for ensuring your family eats well…or at least well enough to survive.
Then, the responsibility shifts from meal prep and getting dinner on the table to teaching your tween or teen how to cook.
It’s a weird little detail you don’t really consider until you’re responsible for doing it.
As the mom to many, this was a repeat adventure.
We started with eggs.
Something they could make themselves before school, after school, or whenever their stomach motivated them.
The conversation was deep.
They took notes.
We created and developed techniques and recipes that made them successful.
They began teaching each other.
I wrote The Instant Pot Cookbook for College and it went with a couple of our kids to help them succeed outside our home kitchen.
Now, my adventure takes me to share that I have a new cookbook coming out, The How-to Cookbook for Teens: 100 Easy Recipes to Learn the Basics.
It involved long hours, creating and cooking recipes we are proud to share with our friends and their kids.
I’ve been cooking forever, and I learned a lot as we cooked, tasted and revised recipe after recipe. We were happy with version 16 but found the sweet spot in version 22.
The kids gave feedback on their favorite dishes to cook.
Their favorite dishes to eat.
What they want to learn to cook.
We made lists and lists and followed them through.
I missed events.
But we all knew the mission was the sheer cliff climb to get it done.
There were moments of sheer panic.
Overthinking what I couldn’t possibly know.
Trying to avoid mistakes and hurdles.
Today, it seems like a dream.
The realization of the reward for all the hard work.
I’m exhausted and exhilarated and believe that this is an amazing cookbook. Its purpose is for teens to get in the kitchen and learn to cook.
