Who doesn’t love comfort food?  And imagine a collection of yummy, comfort food recipes that show you how to indulge in 100-calorie increments?

I recently got a chance to preview a new cookbook that does just that.  The Perfect Portion Cookbook has 150 recipes, each outlined in 100-calorie portions.  Here are some that really caught my eye as looking delicious, interesting, and something that would be helpful to eat in moderation.

First, an Enchilada Bake (featured at the top of this post) – this looks like a blanket on a cold day, and we’re having lots of those in D.C.

And a sweet treat, 100-calorie Brownie Bites…yummm!

100 Calorie Brownie Bites - The Perfect Portion Cookbook Book Review

Get the kids involved!  Here’s a fun way to show kids the process and encourage them to assist.  The Better Batter French Toast would be a #MomTastic activity and very family-friendly.

Here’s the “411” on this new cookbook:

Featuring actor/director Anson Williams from “Happy Days” (remember the adorable, loveable Potsie Weber?), The Perfect Portion cookbook launches Feb. 7th on QVC. The Perfect Portion Cookbook is written by New York Times best-selling cookbook author, Bob Warden and food and nutrition expert, Mona Dolgov of Natick, Mass. and was just featured on the TODAY show and on The Doctors as a new way to think about portion control and nutrition. The remarkable recipes are all divisible by 100 so readers can eat what they love and enjoy 100, 200 or 300 or 400 calorie portions.  Delicious recipes like French toast, chili, chicken pot pie, and lasagna swap out better-for-you ingredients that don’t sacrifice flavor and taste better than the originals.

It is available for pre-order now on Amazon $29.95 and will be sold on QVC for a limited time with a special pre-order price of $19.95 plus $5 shipping/handling at this link.
