This thorough and witty culinary guide demystifies the kitchen and its contents for young adults and anyone who’s found themselves in front of a full fridge exclaiming, “There’s nothing to eat here!” With 200 easy-to-follow recipes, Evelyn Raab shows the culinary neophyte how to make all kinds of simple and scrumptious dishes for every meal and occasion.

Revised for a new generation of students, this amusing cookbook focuses on creating whole, healthy foods using fresh ingredients. Recipes are coded with easy-to-understand icons and symbols that sort each dish into categories, such as vegetarian meals, cheap eats, couch potato, mom and family food, and cooking to impress.

My review:

Be sure to add Clueless in the Kitchen to your December gift list! Written for youngsters, teenagers, and young adults, this guide book/cookbook is superb. It’s a cookbook that also includes pages of helpful suggestions for those who are new to the territory. The recipes are appealing, easily explained, and garnished by a lighthearted, humorous style. Honest- to- goodness true cooking here. This is not a cookbook with box and can style recipes.

There are no pictures but I didn’t miss them since the steps and explanations were thorough and descriptive. Additionally, recipes included icons to identify various types which are: cheap eats, mom food, vegetarian, cooking to impress, and dinner for the family, as well as gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free. 

What a wonderful book to inspire and empower kids in the kitchen!!
