#1 Amazon Bestseller, USA Today National Bestseller and Publisher’s Weekly National Bestseller!!

During my childhood in Lebanese communities in Sierra Leone and Michigan, I grew up eating home-cooked meals with many ingredients made from scratch. It looks intimidating and time-consuming! When we moved to the United States I started learning from my mom how to incorporate Mediterranean flavors and learned time-saving shortcuts to prepare traditional, Middle Eastern recipes, or upgrade simple meals like chicken or pasta. As an adult, I started my blog Feel Good Foodie to make healthy cooking easy. Now, in my first cookbook, I share simple delicious meals enhanced by Mediterranean flavors.

These recipes will teach you exactly what my mom taught me: how to build savvy kitchen know-how that gives you the confidence to cook consistently for yourself and others. Be inspired by White Zucchini Pizza with Garlicky Labneh, Tomato Rice Pilaf, Harissa-Grilled Shrimp Skewers, Seven Spice Roast Chicken & Pomegranate Potatoes, Tahini-Glazed Cauliflower, perfect Crispy Falafel, Three-Ingredient Mango Sorbet, Zaatar Manakeesh, and Olive Oil Cake, which you can enjoy alongside bright green Mint-Basil Lemonade or a homemade Rose Latte. 

“Get ready to dive headfirst into this cookbook! Yumna’s recipes are made with feel-good ingredients and with fewer than ten ingredients, plus her book is packed with practical advice in the kitchen.”

Gina Homolka, New York Times bestselling author of The Skinnytaste Cookbook

“I love simple ingredients, fresh flavors, and finding the balance between tradition and a little innovation. But, more than anything, I love food that makes you exclaim this phrase after one bite: “So good!

– Yumna Jawad

“Overall, Yumna’s approach to everyday cooking, combined with her insights from her Lebanese heritage and upbringing in the US, makes this cookbook unique. It’s a valuable resource for anyone looking to expand their repertoire with time-tested recipes. Growing up eating similar recipes in Turkey, I can attest that the flavor profiles are spot on.

Get it—you won’t be disappointed.”
