Eating healthy can raise questions such as, "Are crayons a fruit or a vegetable?" and "How many steaks does a growing baby need?" Answer culinary inquiries with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a copy of the health-conscious cookbook Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle at Any Age by Holly Clegg (up to a $24.95 value). Customers can pick up their books at Matherne's Supermarket on Highland Road or Bluebonnet Boulevard.
Also known as "Queen of the Quick", celebrity chef Holly Clegg has spent nearly two decades sharing her recipes on countless television segments and in her 14-volume Trim & Terrific cookbook series, which has sold almost 1 million copies. Her most recent installment, Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle at Any Age, garnered the 2011 Silver Winner Nautilus Book Award for collecting 200 recipes that not only outline ingredients and simple preparation steps, but also offer nutritional analysis and diabetic substitutions for sugar-intolerant salt shakers. A hundred color photographs add depth to the recipes, which include Asian sliders with pineapple salsa, Speedy chicken chili, and Yummy yam-praline coffee cake. Ten chapters, including "Table for Two" and "Food for the Mood," sectioned by electric fencing, corral meals into categories such as no-cook recipes, crowd pleasers, and decadent desserts, and icons highlight select concoctions as vegetarian or freezer-friendly.
Though Holly Clegg sometimes features a discount online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
