Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This newest Weight Watchers cookbook may interest an even broader audience than the association's already burgeoning ranks of members. Culled from the personal files of loyal program fans and staff members, recipes include a wide variety of fun, tasty and filling foods, from an elegant salmon with black beans to a creamy celery and garlic soup, and alluring desserts like ginger pears and homemade ice cream. Their accuracy, though, is questionable. While nutritional information--as well as Weight Watcher program data--is provided for each recipe, portions are inconsistent, and rarely are sizes provided by ounce. A cheese lover's white pizza, created from a 10-ounce refrigerated pizza crust, is portioned into six servings; on the following page, ``Peter Piper's'' (pepper-strewn) pizza (which also requires the base of a 10-ounce refrigerated pizza crust) is doled into eight servings. Moreover, ``weight watchers'' who don't attend the program--but expect low-calorie, healthy recipes--must be forewarned. In one example, an easy skillet supper, which is ostensibly portioned for one, calls for six whole eggs, provides 344 mg of cholesterol and nearly half of its calories from fat.

Library Journal
The latest Weight Watchers cookbook features recipes from members and staff who submitted their favorites in a nationwide contest. The winning recipes were retested and refined to fit the organization's nutritional guidelines. Most seem like good family fare rather than diet food, and there is little reliance on convenience food or ersatz ingredients. The headnotes, which introduce the ``real people'' who contributed the recipes, have a peppy cheerleading tone and read more like yearbook entries (``Brenda loves painting, knitting, sewing, and vacations''). Expect heavy demand. BOMC, Quality Paperback Book Club, and HomeStyle Books selections.

    Worth a Try!

    Even though food is lower in fat, it still tastes pretty good. I don't know if I have lost any weight but with this book I believe I can reach my goal. The Strawberry Cheesecake Squares are worth a try!!
