Yesterday I mentioned a great recipe out of one of my favorite cookbooks. Today I want to give a little shout out about the book itself, Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. This cookbook is one of the better ones I have bought. It is packed with recipes that we would actually eat (pretty novel, eh?). I haven't met a cookbook that has tons of recipes that I use regularly, but this one has quite a few.
Let me share some of our favorites. The Dijon-Herb Marinade makes chicken breasts so tender , juicy and full of flavor that I feel it personally rivals Carrabba's. The Rosemary Chicken with Wild Rice, Monterey Jack Turkey Burgers (yummy), Maryland Crab cakes and of course the soup I mentioned yesterday are just a sampling. What I love is that these are easy and relatively quick to prepare recipes with ingredients that you probably already have or can easily get your hands on. And who doesn't love that? Even if you don't do Weight Watchers (I don't), it's just plain, good, food that is good for you and your family.
I haven't tried many of the recipes, yet, but am looking foreward to experimenting with many more. I definitely recommend adding this cookbook to your culinary library (sounds fancy, don't it?) or at least checking it out from your local library. Happy (and healthy) cooking!
