A new student review of The Green Teen Cookbook by Pam McElroy

ClarissaAdeleMorgenstern posted a new student review of The Green Teen Cookbook by Pam McElroy. See the full review.

This cookbook was well organized, and appealing photos add color to the recipes.  I tested several of the recipes.  Some of my favorites were the energy bars and the Caesar salad.  I made the apple chips but I had to shorten the cooking time because they started burning.  A few of the recipes’ directions could have been more specific (For example, multiple recipes didn’t specify which size baking dish to use.), but overall the instructions had enough detail for an amateur cook who doesn’t know many fancy cooking techniques.  Because different teens contributed each recipe, a wide variety of cuisines and diets (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.) is included, which makes this book useful to practically anyone—and not only teens.  I would recommend this book to anyone, young or old, who wants to eat a little healthier and reduce their carbon footprint.
