I enjoyed reading Oprah's story as I can totally relate. Lifetime WW and know it's not a diet but a commitment to self-care and understanding why you turn to food. That said, not sure there's one recipe I will try except maybe the turkey lasagna. All seem too complicated and not down to earth for...

I like the idea of a healthier way of cooking, but for me some of the recipes just had ingredients that were a little hard to come by and some I know wouldn't be cheap, I tend to substitute certain ingredients for items that are too costly. But why do some these healthier celebrity cookbooks tend...

The food looks divine (and is honestly pretty similar to how we eat now, minus Oprah's love of truffle salt), but cooking these recipes everyday is a bit unrealistic. Most of them have 15-20 ingredients, at least, and not all of us can make that happen in the kitchen each night. Also, how much di...

Not really impressed with this one. The recipes are nothing I would ever make. Maybe I am too simple of a cook? The stories with each recipe are okay. I would say the best part of this book is the pictures. Simply beautiful photography. Glad I only paid $19 for this one.

A cookbook that will feed you both physically and spiritually. Oprah tells all about her struggles with her weight and yo-yo dieting.
Many of the recipes are more involved than I want, but they do look good. So glad Oprah is a part of Weight Watchers.

Her advice and the bits about her life are interesting and inspirational, but the food that she chooses for weight loss is not something that most people can afford. Truffle oil and imported fish are both expensive, as are some of the vegetables she discusses. A few items from the soup and chicke...

The dishes look great, but the ingredient lists are too long for my taste. Let's be honest, if we get past 6 ingredients I'm usually out.

Oprah is an inspiration to many but I find her recipes with too many ingredients. I am glad I did not pay for this book.

I really wanted to like this cookbook. I really tried to like this cookbook but after being disappointed multiple times I finally came to the sad realization that these recipes were not for me.
One star is for the sections containing inspirational stories about Oprah's struggle with food and die...

I've loved all things Oprah for what seams like my entire life. Oprah introduced me to new gadgets, new ways of living, and helped me see a better way of being. This book is a continuation of that learning.
This book is a memoir and a cook book. I mostly bought it for the memoir, but was pleasant...
