I am not one of those people who really ever loves the Weight Watchers cookbooks. In fact, throughout the years, I have listened to leaders and fellow weight watchers brag about how delicious recipes have been from various books. I have purchased each, eagerly cooking, shredding and baking to be disappointed by flavorless, yuck! I didn’t expect this time to be different, but I decided to purchase yet another book in hopes of being pleasantly surprised.
Pleasantly surprised I am!
I decided to try the following two recipes last night:
- Spicy Chicken Soft Tacos with Goat Cheese
- Strawberry Napoleon
One was better than the next! In fact, my husband and younger sister both agreed that they like these taco better than the “regular” ground beef type.
I made one alteration to the tacos, I used flour tortillas (preference). We also added a little sour cream, as well as some Sriracha. I didn’t get to take any photos of those because we were hungry and they were devoured!
I did, however, stop to take some shots of the Napoleon. While the photos aren’t pretty, they serve their purpose. I’ll try to work on my presentation in the future 🙂
The recipe consists of crispy phyllo, creamy cool custard, and sweet, fresh strawberries.
Note: I slightly overcooked the phyllo sheets. Still yummy, but would definitely be better if it were a little less crispy.
You can purchase the cookbook at your local meeting location or using your weight watchers online account. The cost is $17.95.
