Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen
Author: Sarah Berghoff McClure, Carlyn Berghoff, Nancy Ross Ryan, Suzanne P. Nelson
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Sarah Berghoff McClure practically grew up in the kitchens of Chicago’s historic Berghoff Restaurant, where wheat-filled German-American favorites such as schnitzels, spaetzles, strudels, and rye bread are staples. When Sarah was diagnosed with Celiac disease, she thought her days of eating her favorite pizzas, pastas, and pastries with her friends were over. Her mother, Carlyn Berghoff, chef/owner of the Berghoff Restaurant, stepped in, and together, she and Sarah began creating gluten-free versions of kid and teen-friendly foods that Sarah could enjoy. Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen offers a unique perspective on living gluten-free from not only someone living with gluten-intolerance, but also from a parent who is also a chef, and a doctor, Susan Nelson, who specializes in treating teens and others with Celiac disease. • Carlyn sets up a gluten-free kitchen checklist and gives tips on how the whole family can switch to gluten-free eating and loving it. • Sarah discusses what it’s like to grow up with Celiac disease, as well as how to live a healthy gluten-free lifestyle without feeling singled out at parties or when eating out, and without missing out on the foods teens love. • Dr. Nelson discusses the symptoms and diagnosis of Celiac disease and gluten intolerance and tells stories about her patients, who tested and resoundingly approved the recipes in the book. Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen is filled with more than 100 recipes and helpful tips on everything from the top foods that gluten-intolerant teens crave, to converting family favorite recipes to make them gluten-free, as well as strategies for packing healthy and delicious lunches and snacks. Straightforward tables and lists of naturally gluten-free foods, gluten-laden foods to avoid, and secret sources of gluten are also included, as is a take-along game plan for kids and adults when they are out and about. With teen and family favorites such as Pizza and Mac 'n' Cheese, Grilled Cheese, Sweet Potato Fries, Almond Streusel Coffee Cake, and more, Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen proves that teens and their families don’t have to sacrifice to eat gluten free.

Easy Healthy Recipes Cookbook A Chopped kid chef and entrepreneur is on a mission to bring healthy food options and easy-to-cook scrumptious recipes to a busy and heavily-scheduled generation of teens. Healthy cooking for kids: Remmi Smith, a sixteen-year-old chef who hosts two cooking shows and serves as a national Student Ambassador for a leading food services company, has written a cookbook encouraging teens to take up healthy cooking as a new pastime. She also has appeared on Chopped, the talkshow Harry (with Harry Connick Jr.), and the Food Network. Easy healthy recipes: Chef Remmi Smith’s creation is not your typical teen’s cookbook: It’s written “for teens by a teen,” explains the author, and is filled with tried-and-true recipes with budding cooks in mind, using limited ingredients and steps. Remmi is the national Student Ambassador for Sodexo, a global leader in food services and facilities management which provides education solutions to nearly 500 school districts. Healthy eating habits and teen health: Through the colorful, easy-to-read, 220-page book, Remmi sets out to inspire teens to adopt healthy eating habits by introducing them to the glorious pastime of cooking. The book takes the reader on a culinary journey across the seven continents, highlighting a country and its top food items in each one. Each section features geographic descriptions, a full menu (from appetizer to dessert), fun facts, brain teasers, personal tips, and delicious photos of the recipes—making it a geography lesson, a cookbook, and a social studies class all in one. Healthy cooking cookbook designed for kids: What’s most evident in this book is Remmi’s passion for cooking. What’s most appealing is her genuine writing style and ability to relate to other teens. In the section about Lebanon, Remmi includes a recipe for Rice Pilaf and comments: “This dish is heavenly. It has both rice and pasta in it—two of my favorites.” Remmi’s recipes include a lot of vegetables and she uses fruits to add natural sweetness while going light on spices to make the dishes more appealing to children and teens. Cooking healthy recipes and having fun too: “I want to inspire teens to get in the kitchen and have some fun, cook healthy and enjoy life and the love of food,” Remmi says. “You can explore the world through food. Writing this book was a really big adventure for me and I hope it will be an adventure for everyone else.”

She's been basting baby back ribs and pulling pork at her father's barbeque joint since she was tall enough to reach the counter. When she's accepted to Taste Test, a reality-television teen cooking competition, Nora can't wait to leave her humble hometown behind, even if it means saying good-bye to her dad and her best friend, Billy.

Cooking for teens, like finding the perfect gift for teen boys and girls, is almost impossible. Teenagers like what they like, and they will only eat what they like. But instead of causing mealtime strife, now they can learn to cook those foods themselves. With over 75 delicious recipes for meals at all times of the day—breakfast, snacks, sides, dinners, and dessert, too—TEENS COOK is a guide to everything teenagers (and tweens) need to learn about conquering the kitchen without accidentally setting the house on fire. Written by teens and for teens in easy-to-follow instructions, authors Megan and Jill Carle give young readers advice on how to maneuver their kitchen in a language they’ll understand (and actually listen to). The Carle sisters pass on their knowledge of how to decipher culinary vocabulary, understand kitchen chemistry (why stuff goes right and wrong when cooking), adapt recipes to certain dietary restrictions (like vegetarianism), and avoid all sorts of possible kitchen disasters. TEENS COOK is not only a fantastic teen gift—it’s the perfect cookbook to inspire young adults to take interest in their diets, and empower them to try a new and tasty hobby.
