"Amber's beautiful book is bursting with great ideas that make healthy eating a joy-and she's done a great job covering all the bases that, in my experience, teens and kids really want." -Jamie Oliver
Fifteen-year-old Amber Kelley is inspiring a whole new generation of eaters to get in the kitchen and have fun. She is the first winner of Food Network Star Kids, a member of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's Food Tube family, and the host of her own web series on Foodnetwork.com and YouTube. Her work has been recognized by First Lady Michelle Obama, and Amber has been featured on national TV networks such as the Disney Channel, E!, and NBC's Today.
Now, Amber's 80 most popular and delicious recipes have been hand-picked for her cookbook to empower teens to get in the kitchen. From nourishing breakfasts to start the day right, to school lunches to impress your friends, party ideas for every occasion, and even recipes for the best homemade facial scrubs to fight that dreaded teen acne, Amber shares her secrets for using the power of food to get the best out of her teen years. Includes 45 full-color photographs throughout.
Kelley, the teenage star of the online series Cook with Amber, debuts with a broad-ranging collection of recipes and tips for versatile and creative cooking. In addition to bright photographs of ingredients and the prepared recipes, she includes images of her family gatherings and her meetings with famed figures such as Michelle Obama (after Kelley won the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge in 2013). She offers ideas for festive occasions, including a Halloween party and "Springsgiving," which her family began celebrating because "I absolutely love Thanksgiving, but around springtime, I start to crave those amazing holiday flavors again."
