Looking for a cookbook with doable, delicious and healthy recipes? If so, we've got the book for you. Holly Clegg's most recent publication, The Holly Clegg Trim & Terrific Cookbook boasts over 500 recipes for time-crunched folks like you.

Her book includes a fun section called "Kids in the Kitchen." As a mom of three young adults, she thinks kids should cook more. "It teaches kids to follow directions, read in sequence, practice math with measurements, and follow through to a finished product," she writes. And, as a bonus, they'll be good cooks for life.

We sampled several recipes from the book including a perfectly seasoned Grilled Flank Steak and German Chocolate Sheet Cake squares topped with creamy frosting. Whether you're cutting back on calories and fat, or just want to feed your family more healthful recipes loaded with great flavor, The Holly Clegg Trim and Terrific Recipes cookbook will have you (and your kids) cooking lots more often.
