Overview

Holly's simple message is that food that's good for you can also be delicious, fast, and easy. And based on the blockbuster success of her previous book, A Trim & Terrific Louisiana Kitchen, she is obviously dishing up a message everyone is eager to hear. Now that people are realizing that low-fat cooking is not a fad, but a necessary way to eat for a long and healthy life, everyone is asking, "How can I eat the foods I have loved all my life, and still stick to all those nutritional rules?" In Trim & Terrific American Favorites: Over 250 Fast & Easy Low-Fat Recipes, Holly has the easy answers: Oven-Fried Chicken Breasts Supreme, Fiesta Potato Casserole, Southwestern Chicken Lasagne, Special Spinach Casserole, Barbecue Shrimp, Italian-Style Pot Roast, Rocky Road Brownies, and Cranberry Cheesecake. Surprised? And you thought you'd have to give up all your favorites. Holly Clegg presents meals the whole family will love, and they can be made with little time and even less effort. Holly knows that secret-weapon ingredients like frozen vegetables, evaporated skim milk, and reduced-salt canned soups allow home cooks to whip up healthful, satisfying meals without spending hours in the kitchen. Holly also includes nutritional breakdowns, menu suggestions, and exchanges for diabetics.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Clegg (From a Louisiana Kitchen) keeps it simple and quick here with easy-to-prepare recipes from her own kitchen. In many cases, she relies on canned soups and broths, frozen vegetables and cake mixes, which may be a turn-off to cooks looking for meals with pizzazz or hoping to steer clear of preservatives. Nevertheless, Clegg offers a variety of modified family favorites ranging from Creamy Noodle Casserole, made with nonfat sour cream, low-fat cottage cheese and reduced-fat Cheddar, to Quick Beef Stew, made with beef round, no-salt-added beef broth and light beer. A list of menus precedes the recipes, which are organized in chapters by course (Appetizers) or main ingredient (Seafood and Fish). Recipes come with nutritional analyses that require readers to refer to food-exchange tables in the back of the book for such information as carbohydrate value. An additional complication is that the analysis for some recipes doesn't match the serving sizes, e.g., while the serving size of a football-season Hamburger Dip is suggested to be slightly less than half a cup,the analysis is per tablespoon. Among the many low-fat cookbooks available, Clegg's will be valued most for those times when speed and convenience are the cook's top priority. Better Homes and Gardens Book Club alternate; author tour.

Barbara Jacobs
What will appeal to home chefs is Clegg's insistence on creating more than 250 low-fat dishes that are fast and convenient and use packaged, frozen, or ready-to-mix ingredients. Her directions read like a combination of Betty Crocker and supermarket specials--all of them, though, include detailed nutritional analyses.
