This is my tenth cookbook from Weight Watchers. To be truthful, I bought my first when I joined the organization. But now I purchase them because I can't believe how they can build such delicious meals for so few calories and points(the way WW calculates the diet plan). This latest offering contains 10 chapters beginning with 'Starters' and concluding with 'The Year in Chocolate'. There is a chocolate jelly roll dessert that only has 129 calories and 3 points for an almost 1" thick slice. The Chocolate Crispy bars...you know those gooey bars with marshmallow cream and crispy rice cereal....ONE POINT!!!
Desserts aside, I grilled the Southwest Chicken with Pineapple Salsa (5 points) and this almost paid for the book. Pot au Feu, Chicken Cacciatore and Seafood Gumbo, 3, 4, and 5 points respectively, were just scrumptious. There is a chapter in the book entitled '5-Point Wonders' and the recipes that I have tried certainly live up to the billing.
For those of you who like to spice up your food, there is a chapter dedicated to doing just that. Spices add few if any calories, but the flavors explode in your mouth. I tried the Pork Barbeque (9 points) and this was definitely in keeping with the North Carolina version of bbq'd pork.
In short, this is a comprehensive guide to meal planning. Even entertaining ideas are provided. The allure of Weight Watchers is that you don't have to give up entire food groups to control your weight. If you stay within the guidelines or daily point values for your given weight, you can choose to eat anything and still lose weight. This book is a wonderful testament to that strategy and the food will not disappoint you. You won't have tell anyone that it is 'diet food' although I'm sure that Weight Watchers would be pleased if you did.

I love this cookbook. It's probably my favorite Weight Watchers cookbook, and I have maybe 5 of them, most of which are really good. The recipes in here really are "best of..." There are many you can serve to company for dinner. I even made the Pork Tenderloin with Snap Peas for my husband's birthday party and everyone raved about the food. The recipes I gave 10s to just go on and on. It's really a great cookbook--not the easiest recipes but not overly hard either. Trust me--it's a good investment!

Format: Paperback
This cookbook has to few pictures and requires too many ingrediants. The only thing its useful for is the sweets and deserts sections. Save your money and buy weight watchers take out tonight instead. This cookbook has pictures of virtually every recipe. You can show your family the cookbooks and they are sure to pick several things that look good they won't even know its healthy (or care). Oh and the weight watchers take out book gives helpful tips after each recipe such as what you can make ahead and what set to freeze the dish for future use.
