Several years ago my friend, Terri, kept fanning herself and said, "You need to write a book for women having hot flashes--maybe all cold recipes." That is where my vision for Too Hot in the Kitchen began, and I expanded the idea to encompass all women as they experience and embrace the many stages of life.
Eating healthier can easily be a way of life; therefore, my first chapter, Foods To Improve, gives an overview of what healthy foods to include in your daily diet. And, when it's hot outside or those hot flashes hit, Lovin' No Oven features only cold recipes. Romance is in the air with Food for the Mood and whether you are newly married or in the empty nest stage, Table for Two will help you cook for a pair. Quickies . . . of course, contains all super fast recipes. Another fun facet to this book is coffee pairing. Just as wine has its place with food, so does coffee. You can become a Coffee Connoisseur and learn coffee that compliments different foods by looking for the coffee cup next to the recipe.
One of my favorite chapters, Diva Dermatology, includes facials made with everyday food. To help me test the recipes, I invited my friends over (without makeup!) for our very own diva party. Did you know you can glow simply from an Avocado mask?
I have been deemed "the queen of quick" as I believe in time-friendly, pantry-friendly, and user-friendly recipes, allowing you to prepare a healthier meal on those hectic days. With my new book, Too Hot in the Kitchen, you will have the recipes to sizzle through every stage of your life.

I was immediately interested int his book just for the cover. I am always on the lookout for healthy meals to make for my family and the idea that these are designed to help me look fantastic is even better. I picked out several recipes to try out in order to draw a general idea of how the rest of the cookbook would be. Now, I will preface this with the fact that my husband and I are on Weight Watchers. The nutritional values for each dish is listed with the recipe, so all I had to do was put the information into my Weight Watchers points calculator before deciding on what we would try.
Chicken Pesto Personal Pizza - It's very different from what we have been eating and it sounded quite interesting. This was 10 points for one pizza and it is in the section Table for Two, so it only makes two pizzas.Read more ›
Known as the "Queen of Quick," Holly's recipes are time, user and pantry-friendly. She appreciates the desire busy women have to create a dish the whole family will enjoy that is both convenient and healthier than eating out or bringing home drive-through fare. Some of the recipes were updated versions of those already in her other cookbooks but I found new ones to try as well such as Blackberry Chicken made with blackberry jam, red onion, and balsamic vinegar which will become a repeated dish on my family menu. The cookbook includes recipes that can easily be made ahead and frozen, as well as some vegetarian dishes. Along with the recipes are entertaining quotes such as "I love to cook with wine...sometimes I even add it to the food."
Food sections include the usual appetizers, main dishes, side dishes and desserts with clever names such as Lovin' No Oven, Table For Two, Quickies, Brunch and Munch, Sweet Temptations, Effortless Entertaining, and Passport Pleasures. There were bonus sections that came as a pleasant surprise such as "Diva Dermatology" - recipes for natural facial masks, scrubs and hair care made with everyday ingredients; "Diet Dermatology" - suggested foods and nutrients to improve skin, promote anti-aging, strengthen nails, reduce under-eye circles, etc.; and even a list of suggestions for what kind of coffee pairs best with certain foods.
Good recipes and advice aside, I also like the quality of this cookbook with the heavy glossy pages and lots of photos which is always a plus. This would be a great book to give at a bridal shower with the fun sexy (but tastefully so) theme, but women of any age who like to cook would enjoy it.
It was a festive and super-crazy-fun night. I knew it was going to go very late (I got to bed at 5:00am!) - so I had prepared a make-ahead brunch dish from Holly Clegg's newest cookbook, Holly Clegg's trim&TERRIFIC Too Hot in the Kitchen. The recipe is given below and I must say the girls all loved it! There was just a bit left over after they were all gone - surprised but thankful as I found that it was just as good reheated as when it came right out of the oven!
This one gets a 4-Star rating from me with a notation in the front of the cookbook to be made in the future. That's what I do in all my cookbooks - I write in the front inside cover only the 4-star recipes along with their page number. Makes for a quick reference when trying to locate recipes later on.
