Feed Yourself 

It is a simple fact of life that at some point you will need to feed yourself. Now, you can always go with the old standbys of peanut butter and jelly or Ramen. Or, you could check out some of the cookbooks the library has just for teens, and cook yourself a feast.

At first glance cooking can be a bit scary, especially if you havenít done much of it. One of the best things about teen friendly cookbooks is that they assume you havenít done much cooking, and so they tend to cover some pretty basic skills. A good book to start with is a lovely little book called How to Cook . If youíve only ever made food in the microwave, this is the book for you.

For more experienced teen chefs, I would recommend Teen Cuisine by Matthew Locricchio or Eat Fresh Food by Rozanne Gold. Both of these books feature recipes for more adventurous cooks.

And vegetarian teens, I havenít forgotten about you. Check out The Teenís Vegetarian Cookbook for quick and easy recipes, as well as A Teenís Guide to Going Vegetarian.

The blog Teens Can Cook Too! is also a great place to find new recipes to try, and of course there is always Pinterest.

So, no more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Get out there and get cooking!
