Review:

If the old saying "butter plus salt equals flavor" is true, somebody neglected to tell the folks at Weight Watchers. Simply the Best is a testament that good food need not always be accompanied by dietary guilt and that flavor doesn't have to be sacrificed in the name of health. The book's more than 250 sensible low-fat recipes cover the culinary spectrum, from entrees such as Bella Braised Chicken to desserts such as Strawberry Crepes.

While the book is designed to accompany the popular Weight Watchers diet program, it can be used by anyone interested in healthy, delicious, low-fat food. The prizewinning recipes are contributed by Weight Watchers members and staff from across the U.S., Canada, and England. For chefs new to low-fat cooking, Simply the Best is an excellent resource for learning flavorful combinations to substitute for traditional high-fat, high-caloric fare. Most inspiring is the sheer variety of recipes included in the book and the unique variations on old themes. While it may sound unconventional to purists, the Apple Cranberry Pie with Granola Crust is wonderful, and the Chicken Marsala with Green Grapes would go well on any table.

From the Inside Flap:

Simply the Best How do you find the very best, most appealing, low-fat recipes that actually taste great? By asking the experts. The 250 tempting recipes here are all prizewinning ideas from Weight Watchers members and staff—the people who understand the healthy eating guidelines of the Weight Watchers Program and experienced success firsthand following those guidelines. What's more, these blue-ribbon recipes have been tailored to Weight Watchers latest transformation for its Program 1 • 2 • 3 Success ™ weight loss plan. This just-released, ground-breaking way to lose weight is designed for busy people who want to eat and cook delicious meals without the guilt. 1 • 2 • 3 Success ™ is a breakthrough for Weight Watchers. It's easy to use and there are no forbidden foods. The luscious dishes in this book prove that healthy meals don't have to be a bore—or a chore. From all across the country, Canada, and even England, Weight Watchers members and leaders cook up fabulous fare that's welcome on any family's table. Sample Blueberry-Cashew Pancakes from Palmdale, California; a Grilled Portobello Sandwich that hails from Hendersonville, Tennessee; homey Scalloped Potatoes from Scarborough, Ontario, Canada; and a light repast of Angel Hair Pasta with Plum Tomatoes and Fresh Basil from a redheaded Duchess who loves her results with the 1 • 2 • 3 Success ™ plan. Perk up your dinners with hearty entrées such as Chicken with Apricot Sauce, a Texas recipe that tames the heavy sauces used in French cooking or the easy One-Dish Turkey with Stuffing from New York. If it's beef you've been craving, satisfy the urge with Mushroom-Stuffed Beef from Reno, Nevada or Braised Lamb Shanks from Bakersfield, California. But Weight Watchers doesn't stop at entrées—the book is full of luscious side dishes that make your meals complete. We didn't forget dessert, either. Savor a creamy Chocolate-Amaretto Cheesecake from Phoenix, Arizona; heirloom Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota; or a decadent Brownie Pie from Ivoryton, Connecticut. There's nothing like having your cake and eating it too! Because you are busy, we've added useful icons so you can see at a glance recipes that can be made ahead, prepared quickly, or microwaved, as well as meals complete in one pot, vegetarian entrées, and ones that are spicy—you can adjust them to suit your taste. So take advantage of the expertise of the Weight Watchers family, and enjoy the wonderful recipes here—each one is a winner!
