From the Author
I listened to each and every one of your requests when building the book, including your favorite shortcuts, cooking methods and recipe requests. In the last hour, I added a Crock Pot Convenience Cooking Chapter, as I've learned slow cooker cooking is a favorite preparation method for many as you can cook without even being home! I also added a Crock Pot symbol to help identify crock pot recipes throughout the book. Also, since rotisserie chicken is such a time saver, there is a chapter completely dedicated to using rotisserie chicken called Rapid Rotisserie Chicken Recipes. Start Simple and Fix It Fast are great resources for that last minute meal you desperately need after you've had an overwhelming day. I know many of you like menus as a guide to help put together a well-rounded meal so the Ready-Made Menus Chapter includes a variety of menus whether you are having a sports get-together or want to impress your guests. Building on Basics teaches you how to prepare and add on to your favorite "fast food pick-ups" (burgers, tacos, pizza and potatoes). And, no cookbook would be complete without a Sweet Temptations section which is entirely devoted to satisfying your sweet tooth. Finally, most importantly, Cooking Basics is the reference section every cook needs with information from pantry stocking to pan sizes. All of the basics to give you confidence in the kitchen.

The perfect title for a first timer, with plenty of kitchen helps and tips, but also for the experienced cook as well.
Holly offers up 150 new recipes that are healthy, with a great variety of ingredients to tempt any palate, but most importantly super easy to prepare. At this "season of my life" these are my main qualifications for the kind of cooking I am willing to do. (Empty Nester Syndrome - and Loving It!)
I made the EASY ROAST out of the "Crock Pot Convenience" section the other night and it was a huge hit! Great flavors, and oh so tender....it gets a 5-star-rating in my recipe "keeper" file.
Next, I'm making the SWEET POTATO CHILI (out of same section) which has a hot/sweet combo going on that I so adore.
This is my new "go-to-cookbook" for all the brides in my life - in fact I have a wedding this weekend which I'm slipping a copy into the gift as we speak!
Can't wait to try offerings from all her chapters, so check back as I'll be updating this review with the results of other recipes I prepare.
Go Holly - and thanks for keep it "trim&TERRIFIC" !

There are more than 150 delicious recipes and most are accompanied by a beautiful color photograph of the end results. In addition each recipes includes diabetic and nutritional information.

Geared toward making life easier in the kitchen, the author included a chapter on using rotisserie chicken called `Rapid Rotisserie Chicken Recipes.' These recipes are quick and simple such as `Chicken Lasagna' and `Chicken Tortilla Soup.'

This insightful cookbook will fast become a favorite in your collection. What would be more fun that hosting a get-together with friends and learning the recipes together?
FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
The cookbook contains 6 recipe sections; from simple starters to sweet desserts. I especially appreciated the chapter that contains nothing but crock pot recipes. All of the recipes are in color and very easy to follow, with large text and simple instruction. There is also nutritional information for the recipes. Additionally, each recipe has a helpful tip associated with it.
I started by trying the crock-pot sweet potato chili recipe and not only was it was easy to make, but also delicious and filling. I can't wait to try more recipes.
All in all...a great cookbook, that's geared to those just starting out.
