Reviews - What do customers think about Weight Watchers' Simply the Best : 250 Prizewinning Family Recipes?
Just Plain Average Jan 25, 2008
I bought this cookbook in the mid 90's when I first started attending Weight Watchers. I made a few of the recipes and for the most part, was unimpressed by them. After flipping through the book again recently after re-joining Weight Watchers, I discovered that most of the recipes seemd unappealing to me or had ingredients I don't typically use. For example, one salad requires 'sushi rice,' which is difficult to make! I don't know why anyone would go to all that trouble for a salad. I'm going to try getting a different Weight Watchers cookbook and hope I have better luck with the next one.
Fantastic! Jan 2, 2008
Coincidently, I happened to make Mushroom Barley soup, pg. 37 and Brownie Pie on page 247 this very morning. The soup is fantastic, filling and very lowfat. The brownie pie is cooling at the moment but judging from the aroma coming from my kitchen....it will be wonderful.
LOVE the cookbook.
great cookbook Nov 29, 2007
I love this cookbook, I found a lot of good recipes that even my kids will eat! I makes it a lot easier to loose weight if you can make one meal that eveyone will like instead of two different meals. I also found it usually doesn't call for a lot of hard to find ingredients making it so much easier and cheaper to stay on your diet.
Great Cookbook Aug 31, 2007
Bought this books some time ago and haven't used it all that much. Just opened it up again and made the Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake and it is amazing. I passed over it because it is made with ricotta cheese and I just couldn't believe it could turn out that great. Just 99 calories for 1/l2 slice. I topped it with whipped cream.
Also try the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, they are a favorite recipe. I added some nuts and just a tablespoon of chocolate chips. Just those two recipes are well worth the price of the book.
Chicken Marsala and Clam Linguini are favorite recipes as well.
Great for picky eaters! Jul 24, 2007
I am a very picky eater,so I usually struggle with cookbooks having recipes I like. This book is great - I just started weight watchers and was very pleased to see this cookbook has not only good basic recipes but also easy to make. It ranges from appetizers and snacks to desserts and everything in between. The recipes are created by real people making their own recipes weight watcher friendly. Very good purchase.
