Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This cookbook is a book for women of all ages with a focus on their demands and their needs. With the same passion and appreciation for good food as in all my trim&TERRIFIC® cookbooks, my newest creation adds a fun, whimsical and entertaining approach to healthier recipes designed for busy women.

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.

Each recipe chapter is devoted to women, their demands and needs.  Hot in the kitchen-check out Lovin' No Oven, only cold recipes;  just the two of you- Table for Two features recipes with two servings, Foods To Improve- healthier  super foods, Food For The Mood-romance or chocolate craving? and Quickies-of course, the fastest of recipes.

Format: Paperback
I am a fan of Holly Clegg's cookbooks and her newest offering, Too Hot in the Kitchen, is a fun collection of 200 "simple and sassy" recipes, written for a female audience.

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.

Format: Paperback
The last weekend before my youngest, Demi, went back to USM (University of Southern Miss) she had some gal-pals over for a last "fling" before they all parted ways back to schools all across the country.

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.

Format: Paperback
I have been a fan of Holly's Trim & Terrific cookbooks for years. Her recipes are always crazy quick,which is what I need most of the time - and they are even crazier delicious. Her new book Too Hot in the Kitchen is one of the cutest and clever cookbooks I've seen. The illustrations are so much fun and the fun theme with sections like Diva Dermatology, Lovin' No Oven, and Food for the Mood will make this such a fun girl-friend gift. I gave a copy to Lisa last week as a hostess gift and my friend Nan's birthday is this Saturday and I've ordered a copy for her. So it is cute and clever with the most beautiful photographs - but staying true to Holly - the recipes look incredible. I made the Asian Sliders with Pineapple Salsa over the weekend and they were a huge hit with husband and son - we had them for dinner and then for lunch the next day. Tonight, by special request, we are having Home Style Chicken with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Thanks Holly for another winner! I can't wait to try all of these recipes.

Format: Paperback
Holly Clegg's "Too Hot in the Kitchen" cookbook is my first but it will not be my last. I've prepared many of her recipes from this book during the past few days of receiving it and I've loved every one. Most importantly, my family (including my youngest son that is a super picky eater) loves everything I've made. After I finish writing this review, I'm going to purchase some more of her cookbooks. In addition to delicious recipes, they are super easy to follow (I'm NOT a gourmet cook) with ingredients you can easily find in your local grocery store. For me to rate a cookbook five stars, it must have delicious recipes, easy to follow directions, not a long list of ingredients that I can't find easily in my local grocery store. This cookbook satisfies all criteria for a five-star cookbook. I'm so glad that I own this book. I look forward to owning more of Holly Clegg's cookbooks.
