I also bought another WW book that I don't recommend as it has no picture, which gives you no joy in looking for a recipe and cooking it, and whose recipes are not as good and creative, called "Simply the best".
I bought that book because my fiance is on a WW diet. It is a great book : all the recipes are absolutely delicious(the only thing I corrected is salt. I use a pinch of it instead of 1/8 tspoon), creative, diverse and super easy to cook. Even my fiance, who had never cooked before, use it and acheives great meals.
I would say that a fourth of the recipes have illustrations that let you know what it will look like. This also gives you some pleasure to go through the book when the daily question arises : "what will we eat today?".
The portions are the weight watchers portions. This means that it fits to a regular slim woman, but I double it for a bigger male eater.
We don't eat meat, and very little fish. Still, a lot of recipes can be used if you are a vegeterian. Some meat recipes can also be done, using meat substitutes.
I am used to French food and I love this American cookbook. I recommend it to anybody.
From a purely practical standpoint, this is an easy cookbook to use. The pages are durable enough to withstand a bit of splatter and splash (why yes, I am a messy cook, thanks for asking!), and they are bound separately so that the book can be opened flat on the countertop to the page you want to see, or even removed completely to be put back later.
The book is nicely organized into categories so that if you have only a general idea of what you want or what's available in the fridge, you can find recipes that fit easily. Ingredients and instructions are laid out nicely on each page, with nutrition information if you need it. For those who are doing the Weight Watchers Flex plan, the Points value per serving for each recipe is also clearly marked. Basics such as pizza dough and pie crust are included, as well as more elaborate and complete meals.
Since I've gotten this cookbook, it's become my go-to source for ideas and good food. I've tried many recipes from it so far, ranging from Chicken Hash to Spinach and Cheese Quiche, and so far I have not been disappointed. If you're trying to eat healthy, there's lots of excellent and tasty choices here. If you're just looking for some inspiration, don't let the WW logo on the cover scare you off...there's lots of good stuff in here for everyone!
Off to get ready for dinner... tonight, Vegetable Fried Rice! Can't wait!
If you have the older Weight Watcher's cook books it is time to update to the newer version and get more variety (how many red onion salads can you eat anyway!). This covers the usual point system and core plan systems and includes all the necessary nutritional info. The tips and side bars are great! Lots of good info.
We have tried the BBQ pork with mop sauce and Roast pork Puertorriqueno, But the coolest thing that we have enjoyed are the 2 Bread machine recipes. Caraway Rye and Cinnamon Raisin. both extremely yummy!
The only negatives are it seems that every WW cook book have to many salad recipes in them. The only thing that amps them up are the different types of dressings. They could have condensed all of the different dressings on a few pages and left more room for other dishes. We ALL know how to make a salad. I would have liked to see more bread machine recipes.
The other negative is the quality of the pages. The paper used is VERY thin and rips easily.
Still well worth the 12-17 dollars. Get it.
