A new cookbook titled The Weeknight Mediterranean Kitchen goes on sale Tuesday, July 24. It is published by Bellingham resident and author Samantha Ferraro, founder of The Little Ferraro Kitchen food blog, and features 80 authentic, healthy and easy recipes that can be made on even the busiest of weeknights. Samantha’s recipes have been featured in PBS Food, the Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, Babble, Yummly, and the Washington Post. She has also been the Los Angeles Times Food Holiday Baking Winner.
With Samantha’s fresh and simple meals, readers can enjoy all of the amazing flavors and benefits of the Mediterranean diet, no matter how hectic their schedule.
