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