Trying to eat healthier? The Mediterranean diet is considered the healthiest, and if you need good recipes to cook at home, Quick and Easy Mediterranean Recipes: Delicious Recipes from the World's Healthiest Diet, by Amy Riolo, is a perfect choice. Not only are the recipes mouthwatering, but they are also quick and easy, so anyone – beginners to advanced cooks – can easily make these successfully at home.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner so they are easy-to-follow. The ingredients are listed at the top with succinct instructions following. There are interesting hints regarding the recipes and the Mediterranean diet traditions, as well as several introductory chapters on the Mediterranean foods, where they are eaten, and why they are healthier.

Unfortunately, there aren’t enough photographs. While the photographs included are professional and beautiful, many of the recipes aren’t pictured. That is the only drawback to this excellent cookbook. The recipes are so appealing, though, most of us will want this cookbook on our shelf anyway. There are lots of healthy bread recipes which are easy to adapt to the dough setting on the automatic bread machine. The main dishes are also appealing, and heavy on chicken dishes, which are generally healthier than red meat. There are also some good lamb dishes; this is a good way to introduce lamb to the family. Also, the Shakshuka recipe is easy and excellent, especially served with whole wheat pita, and one worth trying. Anyone perusing this cookbook will find that there are many good recipes to put in the “must make soon” queue. Most cooks will be impressed with the yummy dips and appetizers, as well as the excellent light desserts.
