Move Over Julia, Weight Watchers Turns 50

Today marks the publication of WEIGHTWATCHERS 50TH ANNIVERSARY COOKBOOK from St. Martin’s Press.  This is a wonderful cookbook to have on the shelf and I have asked Julia Child’s THE WAY TO COOK to make room for this one. If you are on the Weight Watchers program it will delight with the food options and alternative tips while providing PointPlus values.

Weight Watchers

Since this cookbook arrived I have had a renewed vigor in the kitchen as there are ideas galore from “breakfast all day” to “best-in-show” which are desserts.  We have had something from just about every chapter in the cookbook but have spent a bit of time in “Italian favorites” as that is one category we both love.  We have had spinach and roasted red pepper ravioli casserole on more then one night and will do so again next week.

Two other stand outs about this cookbook are the “good idea” drop ins following recipes.  They are tips for items to serve with or for picking out fresh ingredients or gadgets to utilize for the best results.  You get the idea… I so appreciate the classic recipes that are presented and then some alternatives or new ways to think about these classics, ingredients and flavors.  If you are curious, and I trust you are, do not miss page 91 “best-loved snacks”.

So grab a copy and join me in the kitchen or better yet across the table enjoying something that we found inside of WEIGHTWATCHERS 50TH ANNIVERSARY COOKBOOK. For all of the cooks and those who worked so hard over the years and to anyone else that contributed to this cookbook a hearty and healthy thank you.
