Elettra Wiedemann is a food blogger who has been featured in numerous publications. I was happy to learn that she just published a cookbook and even more happy that I was able to get my paws on an early release. Thank you Scribner for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Chock-full of inspirational and easy to make dishes accompanied by beautiful pictures, this cookbook is a winner. To give it a true test, I tried 4 of the recipes. All 4 contained simple and slim instructions for qu

Tried the eggplant recipe and it is easy and tasty.

I love how the book is separated by ingredients. Each page has a modern design with bright, bold images. (Reviewed by Julia, Lawrence branch)

Only found 2 recipes that sounded remotely good or easy to find ingredients.

Impatient Foodie is the cookbook made for anyone with the desire to eat delicious, healthy and interesting foods without the time to prepare them. There are a variety of different recipes to choose from, with a focus on fruits and vegetables, meats, and desserts. Weidemann takes the sustainable food movement to a new level, and has created easy to follow recipes that make it simple for those of us who are too impatient to cook nutritious meals.

This is a book that does precisely what it sets out to do - it promises tasty recipes for those who may feel a little energy and time-strapped, and does exactly that with a surprisingly rich array that should cater to most tastes. Wiederman does an especially admirable job to make sure that vegetable-centric dishes receive center stage, not only ensuring a hefty variety of dishes for her readers, but a very healthy variety

This cookbook has an interesting variety of recipes, mainly designed to bring out positive aspects of key ingredients, and many that work well as leftovers. While not every recipe has a photo, there are a lot of them, though the colorful background and simple layout weren't always the most appealing to me. The recipes I tried did turn out very well. The Leek & Spinach Quiche was lovely and had a very simple and easy crust. The Swedish Meatballs were also simple (though time-consuming in the ...more

I wasn't expecting to find such simple but cool recipes in this book -- mostly because when I read 'time saving recipes', they seem to be so similar; however, authors of those recipes haven't described themselves as "foodies" which is perhaps where the difference comes in! I really liked the layout of the book -- photos, simple numbered instructions, and recipes that even I could follow (and make them look as good as the recipes). I loved the "Beet Gratin with Gruyere and Goat Geese", although s ...more

Normally I don't review or rate non-vegan cookbooks for obvious reasons, but this was just so bad even for a non-vegan cookbook that I had to give it one star. Horribly unhealthy food with horrible sounding recipes (even if I subbed in vegan substitutes to make it edible for me). A completely pointless book....

I expected more vegetarian recipes for a book with such a large "vegetables" section. Alas, many of the recipes in that section include meat. The recipes are easy enough. The photos included are great, but there is not a photo for every single recipe which is a huge pet peeve for me with cookbooks.

There were about 6 recipes that I was really keen to try out of the 100. A few others peaked my interest, but I hate the lazy way out of "using a pre-made cake mix" to finish the recipe. Its just not my style.

I really enjoyed this cookbook and felt the recipes were as described - delicious and pretty easy. I made the chicken, mashed potatoes, egg salad and the shrimp pasta and I would make all of them again easily.

This was ok. I really did not find anything I really liked in this book. It was mostly veggies with weird food combos, and lots of ingredients.

I enjoyed that the author broke up the book by ingredient rather than by dish. A good book for summer cooking.

Some good vegetarian ideas in here for quick meals and drinks! I will definitely try the Rossellini spaghetti next time I have a ton of herbs, and the easy leek tarts look promising. A book more interesting for its general mindset of eating well and doing it quickly rather than for the actual recipes, imho.

I don't own a lot of cookbooks and in this day and age with the internet and blogs and Pinterest I'm sure there are a lot of people like me. But every once in a while I see one that has a recipe that sounds really interesting. And then I turn the page and there is another one. And when I keep turning pages and see all these beautiful photos with these great recipes that I even I could make I'm sold. These are not labor intensive recipes that have weird ingredients that you have never heard of or ...more
