Wow - this isn't a measly collection of artificial sweetener packed unrealistic tasting rubbish, but more than 50 original takes on classic desserts, full of natural flavours and goodness. You've got a wide choice of delicious sounding recipes from muffins and cakes to pies and tarts, puddings and ice creams and a few fruit desserts too. Cherry Ice Cream Pie, Coconut Cream Pops and Lisa even has a low fat version of Tiramisu - fantastic.

Yummy and low calorie!

Eating healthy does not mean that you need to give up your favorite desserts.
This book contains restaurant quality desserts at weight watchers calorie levels !
It comes complete with nutritional information.

I loved the recipes and the fact that I now know that I can be healthy and enjoy desserts.
I'm sure you'll love them too.

If you are on a diet but crave desserts, buy this book.

As a fellow cookbook writer I really appreciate things like a good table of contents, nutritional information and well-written recipes that are easy to make. This recipe book has all of that, and absolutely scrumptious recipes that reduce calories without resorting to weird additives and fake sugars. I especially like that there are some recipes that are completely new to me - original, interesting and delicious such as the Double-Chocolate Brownies and the Honey Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies - yummy!

After doing lots of research for what would become my best-selling book "Get Down to 150" I found out how bad today's wheat is. Whole grains are quite unhealthy. So I was skeptical of this book because desserts almost always use wheat or white flour as a main ingredient. Combined with lots of sugar, cream and sometimes the worst HFCS (in Karo syrup and the like) it's a disaster waiting to happen.

The author pleasantly surprised me. Many of the recipes use cornstarch (I may test out flaxmeal instead since 88% of corn is genetically modified and a study published April 13, 2013 showed gmo corn is highly toxic so I reduce my exposure to corn).

The chocolate cake with pistachio cream sounds delicious and doesn't destroy your blood sugar. I could even see substituting dark chocolate for traditional melted cocoa.

The Maple Quinoa Pudding is also something I'm going to taste test though I'll omit the soy ingredient because of how damaging soy is.

I applaud the author for bringing low cal desserts to the public. Americans are unlikely to eat less dessert so eating less sugary, less floury desserts is an improvement from what most people do. And the recipes sounds tasty which is an added bonus.

Have these recipes appeared previously in copyrighted books, magazines or websites? I ask because certain recipes give only the fat content rather than the full nutritional information, and certain recipes show prep time and cooking time. If they weren't borrowed from other works, then why don't they ALL have complete nutritional info and prep and cooking time? And if they were borrowed from other works, where's the permission info; i.e., used with permission from...?

I suggest that When a recipe says 10 - 12 servings and then shows calorie count and nutritional info at the end, how do you know whether the counts are given for 10 servings or 12? Or when the ingredients specify 1 - 1.5 cups blueberries, are the counts given for 1 cup or 1.5 cup? And it would be nice if the author would show the SIZE of the serving, i.e., 1 cup or 3-inch slice (of a pie) or 2 x 3-inch slice (of a cake), etc. And when a cake recipe says in the notes, Make as cupcakes instead, the author should include instructions regarding baking temperature and time, because not everyone knows they need to bake cupcakes for a shorter time and/or at a different temperature.

Also, about the cover recipe: it says in the Tips section, You can also substitute silken tofu for the cream cheese instead of the cream cheese... What's wrong with that sentence? (Hint: repetition. And on the Simple Berry Custard Pie, the line under the title talks about a decedent flavor; presumably the author means a decadent flavor? I could go on, but the upshot is, the author really needed a good professional proofreader/copy editor rather than relying on spellcheck or her friends.

I love sweets AND I am also someone who counts calories and is on a mission to lose some weight. This cookbook is so perfect for me. All my favorite sweet ingredients that fit right into my calorie budget. All recipes include the essential calorie count (and nutritional information) so if you track this like me, you're all set. Another great cookbook by this author!

Delicious and beautiful desserts with fewer calories and better nutrition than usual. I found these easy to make, and the book is very organized and easy to follow. An excellent addition to my e-cookbook library!

We made a few things out of this cookbook, some were great and some were just ok. A few recipes made me wonder what was low cal about them as they seemed to actually have quite a few calories. Chocolate pie took along time to make and was not that great. The weightwatchers version w/fat free cool whip and sugar & fat free pudding was faster, easier and tastier.
