When it comes to books, Oprah Winfrey and a book recommendation tend to go hand in hand. So, when it was decided that Oprah would release a cookbook, even though I am a fan, even I was skeptical. I asked my sister, “Isn’t she using Weight Watchers? How does that fit in?” Second, she really doesn’t need the money! Like Oprah, my sister and I struggled with our weight. We tried everything. I mean absolutely everything. Thanks to a little book called The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution, which has become the best kept secret to weight loss, I really lost 11 pounds, and that sluggish feeling from the extra weight, since my kids went back to school in the fall. I have been working hard not to do anything to mess that up. So, my sister convinced me to go with her this morning to get this book. If my sister recommends a book, I tend to go get it. She recommended The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution to me years ago, and it took for me seeing a bunch of other mentions about it to finally go get it. I apologize, let’s get back to Oprah. Let me start out by saying, even before you get to some of the most amazing recipes ever, this book is made with love. It is so beautifully done that I don’t want to muck it up with flour or splashes of oil from my kitchen. It’s also very candid. Flipping through, I love the story about Lassie and even as a fan, I learned a better way to make tomato soup. Soup is love. That has to be my favorite chapter. For all the people that struggled, like I did with WW points, many moons ago. The point system is there. But, this isn’t a WW book. Instead, it will introduce you to amazing dishes, that will either get you back into the kitchen or inspire you to make your own. From the Unfried Chicken, who knew, to the Turkey Lasagna. The sorbet, I have had before, but it was interesting enough, if you haven’t. This really is a great book. Great food, no regrets. I just wish it had been available before Christmas. It would have made an awesome gift. Other than that, I highly recommend it. If you are serious about eating healthier and following Oprah’s push to eat more clean, with less processed foods, I also highly recommend that you also buy, or even borrow from your local library, The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. It changes how you will eat anything and everything for the better. I pray that it helps you as much as it has helped me and my family.
I love this book from the layout to the recipes. As I leafed through the book, it was evident that many of the recipes are doable .... not requiring a long grocery list of uncommon ingredients to accomplish. Of course, some require more elaborate ingredients, but that's the beauty of a good cookbook, variety. The book is fun to pick up and read. I admire Oprah and the journey she has been on, quite a courageous woman. The personal stories that are included add to the connection we, as humans, have around food. Thank you Oprah for sharing and giving of yourself. I'm looking forward to making many of the recipes. They look so yummy!
I love Oprah , nice book cover. She first book choice and second is called " SISTER LET ME TELL YA" by bernadine . Where women walk away for negative and find GOD. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/sister-let-me-tell-ya-bernadine/1026050501?ean=9781434953841
I have no review, I just want to know WHO is on the cover? That sure isn't Oprah's body. Her chest didn't disappear on Weight Watchers
Returned the book, if it's not easy I'm not cooking or making it!! Typical Oprah, you need a live in cook!
