Holly Clegg is not out to impress a restaurant full of diners or the food cognoscenti. She's out to impress the most important people in her life – her family.

In addition to writing cookbooks, whipping up brownies on television shows and promoting skillets and sweet potatoes, Clegg is first and foremost a mom. And the busy lifestyle of a mom is what has shaped her food style and cookbooks for the past 20 years.

Her book, The New Holly Clegg Trim &Terrific Cookbook (Running Press, 2006) contains more than 500 familiar favorites, most attainable in less than 30 minutes. Clegg doesn't shy away from convenience items such as canned Mexi-corn, jarred salsa and bottled sweet and sour stir-fry sauce, and her recipes contain a complete nutritional analysis. Check out her brunch menu, perfect for Mother's Day.
