"Where no food is a sin" is a slogan for the British version of Weight Watchers®, and this book illustrates that tenet. The recipes, arranged by type, do not sound like diet food—e.g., Bacon, Egg and Cheese Casserole, Pork and Rice-Stuffed Cabbage, Berry and Cream Cheese Open-Face Sandwiches, Fettuccine with Gorgonzola and Toasted Walnuts, and Boston Cream Pie. Mexican, Italian, German, and Moroccan are a sampling of the international flavors of the all-time favorites. The recipes that are suitable for Weight Watchers' Core Plan are marked with an icon, and POINTS® are listed for the Flex Plan. Nutritional information is also included, and each recipe is followed by a suggestion or hint. Although some of the recipes are similar to those in other Weight Watchers cookbooks, fans of the system will enjoy this new source. Recommended for culinary collections as a general cookbook with simple and fast dishes that are delicious.
