Trim & Terrific Cookbook

Trim & Terrific Cookbook
By Holly Clegg
Spiral Bound Hardback
525 Pages
2002, Running Press
ISBN 0-7624-1334-4

Amazon price: $17.47

This is a book you will use over and over again, both for day in and day out snacks and meals, as well as for special celebrations, dinners and entertaining.

Many of you are familiar with Holly Clegg through her columns on this website, her previous books (Trim & Terrific Louisiana Cooking, Meals on the Move: Rush Hour Cooking and Eating Well Through Cancer), as well as her frequent contributions to Cooking Light magazine.

In this volume you’ll get 500 of Holly’s best recipes -- recipes so tasty and flavorful, you’ll never known they’ve been lightened from higher fat versions. No one will ever suspect they are eating healthy recipes, unless you tell them. Holly’s goal was to keep each recipe under 30% fat (many of them are much lower). Each recipe comes with a nutritional analysis, including calories, fat grams, carbohydrates, calories from fat, saturated fat, dietary fiber, cholesterol, sodium, as well a diabetic exchanges. Those following the Weight Watchers plan will love the wide variety of recipes and the nutritional info gives you everything you need to easily figure out the Weight Watchers points values.

The recipes span a wide variety, making this a good cookbook to have, of you’re only having one (or two or three). There are hearty comfort foods along with light, innovative nouvelle dishes that use wholesome fresh ingredients. The recipes are simple to prepare and well explained -- well within the range of cooks of all skill levels. Most are quick to prepare as well. Recipe categories include: Appetizers; Breads, Muffins, and Brunch; Soups and Stews; Salads; Vegetables; Poultry; meat; Seafood; Pasta; Cookies & Cakes; Desserts & pies; Just for Kids.
