My son is a young teen, but he has enjoyed learning from this book. He already had knife skills and basic cooking skills (eggs, grilled cheese) but nothing too complicated. I thought this book would take the next step, more complicated recipes, and it has. While he's made many things successfully, his favorite is the Malaysian Style Chicken and Shrimp Laksa. He was so proud of himself, and he's made it several times since.
I think that this book is worth purchasing for her chicken-broth elixer and her pocket-pies alone. Those pocket pies are saving my life with a teen-age boy around! And the chicken broth elixer - so easy, and quick, and delicious for sick days. And the Asian-style pork roast is absolutely delicious!!! A nice change of pace from standard pork roast. Actually - everything I've made in this book I've really enjoyed, as has my family.
While I understand why she titled the book what she did - she does have a family of boys, after all! - this book is NOT just for boys. I also think this is simple enough, but not TOO simple, to give as gifts to newlyweds, students graduating from college and going out on their own, or just someone who wants to learn to cook better. I've given (3) copies as gifts already, will probably give a few more. Highly recommended book.
6/2/14 UPDATE: 6 months later and I am still finding myself paging through it and finding new interesting recipes, depending on my mood of the day. The spanish rice and easy chocolate cake are great!
