John Hancock is best known for signing the Declaration of Independence with such authority that the British were afraid to dispute it, thereby averting a high-stakes poker game for control of the colonies. Witness the awesome power of the autograph with today's Groupon: for $26, you get Holly Clegg's cookbooks Too Hot in the Kitchen and Gulf Coast Favorites, available for pickup at Matherne's Supermarket on Highland Road or Bluebonnet Road (up to a $52 value).

A longtime Baton Rouge resident who’s appeared on television shows ranging from Fox & Friends to The 700 Club, Holly Clegg has penned more than 14 cookbooks featuring fast, easy, and healthy cuisine. Her latest culinary compendium, Too Hot In the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle at Any Age, teems with more than 200 nutritious recipes, with chapters devoted to romantic dinners, crowd-pleasing crudités, and no-cook noshes. Bonus features include homemade skincare regimens and coffee pairing suggestions, helping the most important meal of the day transcend its status as the loneliest.
Clegg's Gulf Coast Favorites honors her home base with recipes that are made using fresh fish and local ingredients. Filled with simple instructions and unscented ink, the cookbook helps readers stay focused as they re-create low-country favorites such as crawfish enchiladas with cheesy cream filling and fish with horseradish-dill caper sauce. Each cookbook includes diabetic exchanges and nutritional analysis, keeping health-conscious eaters' consciences healthy.
Though Holly Clegg's books are sometimes offered at a discount online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
