CORRECTION: I originally gave this book 4 stars based on the review written below. I still am disappointed that the Weight Watcher points are not included BUT I did find the total number of servings listed right after the title of the recipe. I should have known she wouldn't forget. So she is still a 5 star cook book author!!!

Normally I would give anything from Skinny Taste 5 stars. Recipes are always tasty and light.

But I thought this book was missing some information necessary for those using the Weight Watchers program. Her online site almost always includes the Weight Watcher points for any single serving of a recipe. In this book that piece of information is missing. Hmm...

So I decided it was no big deal to figure out the points myself. But right away I noticed that she tells you up front in an easy place to see is what the quantity of a single service is (for example: 1 1/2 cups). Good. But what I thought was missing is how many servings does the whole recipe provide. Even if I pulled together all the points for any given recipe, I would not know the total number of servings made and therefore would not know what number to use to divide the grand total of recipe points to determine the number of points for a single serving.

And then I noticed that at the end of the recipe she would say "divide recipe in xx number of servings." ... ok ... there was the number of people it served. I decided to keep my rating at 4. The standard info easily available to the cook should include total number of servings easily found in or near the list of ingredients. It is just a standard practice that makes it easy for the cook. I had to seek it out. To many people it might not be a big deal - I have no doubt the book is filled with 5 star recipes because that is her history with my family. But this bit of an organizational 'trip' is a pretty important one to me.

Other wise - she is A+
