How much time are you willing to spend on dinner? If it’s an hour or less, you’ll want to pick up Elettra Wiedemann’s Impatient Foodie: 100 Delicious Recipes for a Hectic, Time-Starved World. The recipes are not only easy-to-follow and quick to make, but they are for dishes that people will actually want to eat.

Wiedemann is the founder and writer of the popular and delightful blog Impatient Foodie. This cookbook includes several of her recipes that are on the blog, as well as others that aren’t, but are worth having. Wiedemann has successfully come up with a formula to create quick foods that taste like they were made slowly while at the same time reducing the amount of meat consumed and adding more vegetables, grains, and other healthy options. The recipes are unique, healthy, and delicious. Wiedemann uses timesavers like rotisserie chicken, cake and brownie mixes, canned beans, bottled sauces, and even frozen whipped topping (which is, to this cook, a bona fide food crime and one which I refuse to use even though she may use it). Her recipes run the gamut from kale and trendy vegetables, to mouthwatering fish dishes, to lamb and chicken, as well as a shortcut zucchini bread recipe (made with a pound cake mix), to homemade ice cream.

Favorites include Claudia’s Salmon Burgers (the best), and Almond-Crusted Cod on a Tomato and Avocado Salad. Quick Kuri Squash Soup with Bacon and Goat Cheese was easy and good, and her version of the trendy and ubiquitous Shakshuka includes kale and is excellent.

All told, Impatient Foodie: 100 Delicious Recipes for a Hectic, Time-Starved World is an excellent, timely cookbook that will be enjoyed by both beginning and experienced cooks. The pictures are beautiful, the recipes are mouthwatering, and there is enough variety to please even the most picky eaters.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
