Customer Reviews:

  • Wonderful!
    Every recipe I've made out of this book has been wonderful, even my husband (who does not have a weight problem, in fact he needs to gain weight) loves the recipes. I saw the complaint about supposedly "exotic" ingredients, everything is available at today's grocery stores and *olive oil* especially is something that every dieter *should* have on their shelves. Yes, the book does rely on fresh ingredients, but many of them are cheaper and far healthier than using prepared foods. Many fast to prepare low fat meals are let's face it *boring* and bland. These recipes are simple to prepare ways to make weight loss anything but boring....more info
    As a huge cookbook collector and fan of healthy eating, this cookbook tops my favorites. I have cooked numerous recipes fromt his bok and enjoyed them all. Well-organized and tasty food!!! ...more info
  • This is a great Cookbook
    I bought this cookbook on the recommendation of a fellow Weight Watchers Member. I am so glad I did. The receipes are simple and fast and taste fantastic!!!

    I have tried several recipes since it arrived and they were all great! But the Peachy Pork Chops are wonderful, fast and very easy. The sauce would be great on chicken and turkey too. I cannot wait to try more recipes this coming week. Even if you are not a Weight Watchers member I would recommend this book. Tasty low fat meals that dont taste low fat!...more info
  • Best Diet Cook Book I Ever Bought
    I love this cook book. The recipes are delicious and easy to follow. Some of the recipes don't seem like they can be as few points as they claim because they are too good. I would buy this book again. It's great for counting points if you are doing Weight Watchers but the recipes are good even if you aren't....more info
  • Exercise book

    There are so many (not usually on your shelf) ingredients, that you will be going to the grocery store alot!! Bonus points for exercise....more info
  • Some excellent recipes, others not-so-hot
    I have made 6 recipes from this book so far. Two were absolutely delicious (and easy) and will be staples in my repertoire for years to come (Tofu Teriyaki and Pierogies with Creamy Mushroom and Sherry Sauce). Two were okay, but not great (Chicken Marsala and Soba Noodles in Ginger Broth)--when I make them again, I'll tweak the ingredients a little. Two were pretty bad (Honey Pecan Chicken and Eggplant and Tofu with Garlic Sauce).

    I rate this book 4 stars because I give it the benefit of the doubt. Many of the recipes seem appetizing and I am hoping the two duds were exceptions. Also, the two recipes that were good were REALLY good so they made up for the price of the book, even with the dud recipes. I think this is a worthy purchase if you're a busy person and need quick meals for weekday evenings, but just be aware that there are some bad recipes in here....more info
  • Make it in minutes is great
    Such a great help in reaching my weight loss goals. My family loves these recipes. I have cooked almost every one within the 10 weeks of purchase....more info
  • This is cookbook versatility at its best!
    I disagree with those reviewers who claim that the recipes in this book take longer than 15, 20 or 30 minutes to prepare. I have made the Seared Lamb in Garlic Sauce and it took less than a 1/2 hour from start to finish. I also made the Osso Bucco chicken, which is one of the most innovative and delicious WW recipes ever!

    These recipes are all tasty and very quick to put together. Many of them are also suitable for entertaining. So don't hesitate to order this book. It has been a lifesaver for me. Since joining WW in January, 2007 I have lost 60 lbs in 12 weeks! My success is due largely in part to my WW cookbook collection including Make It In Minutes!...more info
  • Great Recipes!
    I'm always looking for healthier options for meals and this book is great for that! I've only tried a couple so far but they've been very tasty and relatively easy to prepare, even for me, a total beginner in the kitchen! They did take a little longer than the 15, 20, or 30 minutes, but that could have been because I'm kind of new at preparing meals so I'm probably slower than the average cook. I'm very happy with my purchase and plan to use it alot!...more info
  • Weight Watchers Make It in Minutes
    I did not find any recipes that I would be trying. A lot of the items would have to be special purchase items bought in the grocery store and I do not care for that. ...more info
  • WW Make it in Minutes
    I have most of the Weight Watcher's cookbooks and this is by far my favorite. I love the fact that the recipes are quick, easy and very tasty. My favorites are Steak with Spicy Chili Sauce, Pan Seared Salmon with Fresh Tomato-Basil Relish and the Wild Mushroom Risotto. I use the Tomato-Basil relish with other types of fish as well. The fact that the points are included is the icing on the cake! Enjoy!...more info
  • I love this cook book!
    I have four weightwatchers cookbooks and this is by far my favorite and the most used. I think I make at least 3 to 4 meals from this book a week.

    All the other cookbooks ask for items that I have never heard of and I was looking for something that was simple. This book works for my busy life style and also has great flavors.

    The great thing is, my family has enjoyed ever item I have made from this book too! So that should count for something. That includes my teenaged daughter.

    Enjoy....more info

  • Great new ideas
    I'm not on the weight watchers plan but I bought this book because i wanted to prepare food fast& to get some new ideas. I tried a few recipes & already this book is my favourite. I love the meal suggestions they have. My husband & 2 year old love the food too. I've made a few changes to suite us like if i have'nt got a certain type of cheese i'll use what i have, etc..I'm glad i'm making my family healthy meals. try it....more info
  • Yummy!
    Great recipes...vegetable chili, turkey bacon cheeseburger, banana chocolate chip pancakes, and lots more "real" foods to eat and stay on the plan....more info
  • the BEST 'diet' cookbook you'll ever find!!!
    If you are hunting for a cookbook with healthier recipes, this is the one you need!!! The recipes are categorized into breakfast, lunch and dinner and narrowed again into time elements, 15, 20, 30 minutes to prepare. I've made many of the recipes in this cookbook and each has been wonderful. The BEST weight watcher cookbook I've ever tried; I'm not on weight watchers but we try and eat healthy meals and this cookbook is a mainstay....more info
  • Quick and Easy
    These are great recipes that don't require lots of thinking (after a hard day at work). Some old standards, some new ideas....more info
  • Best yet.
    I have several Weight Watcher's cookbooks. I have to say that this is my favorite by far....more info
  • Not so great
    This book is filled with fast ideas, but most are not practical or appealing. I am disappointed and will probably not use the book all that much. The recipes are not generally husband or kid friendly as far as likeablility goes....more info
  • WW Make it in Minutes
    Absolutely fabulous tasting meals, makes an amateur cook appear to be a master chef. My family LOVED every meal I made....more info
  • Not much I would cook....
    I returned this book as I did not see that much that I would cook....more info
  • The Best Cookbook Ever
    I have made more recipes from this book than from any cookbook I have ever owned. Every recipe is quick, easy, and absolutely delicious. Being a lifetime Weight Watcher member, I love knowing the points value of each dish and knowing that what I cook is healthy and nutritious. Despite all the good things about each dish, i.e. quick, easy, healthy and light, it is still scrumptious....more info
  • Fast, Easy, Healthy and Delicious!
    This is the absolute best cookbook I have ever purchased. Not only am I preparing healthy meals, but I am also preparing them faster and easier. The recipes are simple and each section (15, 20, and 30 minutes) is full of delicious recipes that are perfect no matter what the meal. My favorite is the maple-glazed chicken and because it is so simple, I can have it ready for dinner any night of the week! I honestly can not believe that anyone would be disappointed with this cookbook....more info
  • Excellent compliment to any kitchen
    I love the recipes in this book. I have made so many of them and there is not one that my family and I did not like. They are simple and as quick as the book says they will be. I feel great about preparing a healthful meal for my family that is just as tasty and it is healthy. I highly recommend this cook book!...more info
  • These tasty recipes are fit for a queen
    When I signed up for the Weight Watchers Online program three months ago, I was cautiously optimistic. I feared that I would have to live on small portions and boring, bland foods for the rest of my life. I knew from the beginning that I would need variety in my diet to keep me motivated, so I went to the bookstore and flipped through the various Weight Watchers cookbooks. I was looking for a book that was affordable, offered a number of easy-to-intermediate recipes, and featured recipes that were flavorful, yet mostly used ingredients that I could find at my local grocery store or farmer's market.

    This book really fit the bill. These recipes use a few carefully chosen ingredients to pack a lot of flavor into every meal. Also, surprisingly enough, the servings were large enough that I was able to eat until I was full every time I used this cookbook. As a Points counter, I found that there were plenty of recipes to choose from with a nice variety of Points values. This book may not work as well for Core members, because a lot of the recipes incorporate pasta. The Peachy Pork Chops were a surprise favorite, and the Tortellini with Prociutto and Peas has become one of my favorite meals ever, light fare or otherwise.

    When I cook using this cookbook, I forget that I am on a diet and instead get a great feeling of satisfaction, because I am expanding my cooking repertoire and at the same time trying new herbs and flavors every night. This book is highly recommended to anyone who wants to diet without dying of boredom, or for anyone who wants a simple and tasty treat for dinner tonight.

  • Weight Watchers Heaven
    This is one of my favorite cookbooks. The recipes are very easy to follow and are made with ingredients I can find in my small town. I love the additional serving suggestions along with the comments about each recipe. The recipes are divided into breakfast, lunch and dinner suggestions and then divided further in 15, 20, and 30 minute recipes. These are fantastic for my busy schedule. Even my husband, who calls Weight Watchers that points thing, loves the recipes and does't realize how healthy he is eating. ...more info
  • Weight Watchers Make It in Minutes: Easy Recipes in 15, 20, and 30 Minutes
    Its a great book with a lot of good meal ideas.I love it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to eat healthy and lose some weight along the way. ...more info
  • Great Cookbook
    I wanted to start being a bit healthier about what I was making for dinner so I bought this cookbook. It has many tastey and healthy receipes to choose from. There are breakfast, lunch, and dinner receipes included for 15, 20, 30 min. I would say this is the cookbook I use the most....more info
  • Fantastic!
    This cookbook has many delicious recipes that my husband (who doesn't diet) and myself both enjoy. I don't even think he knows I'm making healthy food. Very good and easy to follow recipes - even for someone new to cooking like myself. The Polynesian Pineapple Chicken is fantastic. I've bookmarked at least 30 recipes in this book that I can't wait to try! I've made two so far, both were great and easy to make. As a newlywed still learning to cook, I appreciate the simplicity of the recipes, which don't taste "simple" or "boring" when finished!...more info
  • WW In Minutes
    I love this cookbook! It couldn't be more simple and all of the recipes are delicious. This is actually the second time that I have bought the book. I loaned the first one to someone and they kept it!

    I have also given this book as gifts to fellow WW followers. It is also terrific for non WW people. My husband and 3 year old both love the recipes.

    I highly recommend!

  • Has Become My Favote Cookbook -
    I love this cookbook which I've had about five months. Though I am fortunate and don't have a problem with weight, my criteria for a good meal is that it be healthy and quick & easy to prepare with ingredients that I have on hand or are easy to find in a typical grocery store. Not only does this book deliver on all these points, but the dishes are more gourmet style and the serving suggestions are great and make the meals even more enjoyable. I couldn't ask for more in a cookbook. Thanks Weight Watchers...more info
  • This Is One Book You Really Need!!!!
    I can tell you from my experience in buying this particular WW book that the recipe's are fantastic and all stay true to the timing of the recipe's! Even the 10 minute meals are GREAT!! My hubby was skeptical about eating the 30 minute meals and he absolutely loves them and NOW HE is making them! He's really the better chef in this house since he retired and he absolutely loves this cook book! You WILL lose weight with this book if you follow the instructions and get the right ingredients-don't worry!! And you'll NOT BE SORRY you got this book-that's for sure. I had a hard time choosing which one to start with and I'm so happy I chose THIS ONE b/c of it having 10, 20 and 30 minute recipe's.

    Also don't forget to buy yourself a WW calculator-it's an tool that is very valuable for days when you're on the go and don't have time to cook anything in this book! You can get them on Ebay for $20 if you look around and not have to pay tax OR shipping. I got mine from some place called something like: Treetop Collectables or something close to that. I just know it is GREAT and a HUGE HUGE HELP as this book I got at Amazon. Also, I was shocked to buy this book from Amazon and get it TWO DAYS LATER!!! I didn't pay extra for fast shipping either-got the free shipping and presto-I had the book so fast I was shocked!! Folks, we live out in the boonies and they STILL got me this book so quickly after I ordered it-it was unreal!!

    You won't regret buying this book-trust me!! It is GREAT!!!!!!!!

  • Weight Watcher's Make it in Minutes:Easy Recipes in 15, 20 and 30 minutes
    This is the cookbook for me. I am not only trying to watch what I eat it needs to be fast and simple. I fell in love with the chicken and ham pot pie, this was really a surprise as I am not a fan of pot pies. I am in the process of exploring different recipes so far they have all been great And the taste is marvelous. ...more info
  • Quick, Tasty, and Easy
    The book has many quick recipes which are tasty, and my husband loves quick recipes (He does the cooking). We have picked our favorites of the ten we have tried so far, but haven't even begun to try all of them. We hope to eliminate beef in our diets, because most of the recipes call for chicken, or no meat, and include vegetables which we need more of. I'm glad I made the purchase....more info
  • Weight Watchers Does it Again!
    Weight Watchers never disappoints me. They have packed together a wonderful cookbook filled with great recipes. This book is colorful and has many pictures so you know what you are getting. I love this book as sometimes I get a little tired with my current menu of WW recipes. The recipes I tried were very tasty and quick and easy to make....more info
  • loved it!
    I have lots of cookbooks but I always go back to my Weight watchers ones! My family loves all the recipes I cook from them and I have even gotten my parents to start trying them too! ...more info
  • My Favourite Low Fat Cookbook
    I love this cookbook! I use it at least once a week and find that the recipes are easy to follow and easy to modify to the core plan. The only problem is that the recipes are not spicy enough for my tastes so I simply double the recommended spice amount. Naother bonus is that all of the ingredients are things readily found in my kitchen or easuly found in a supermarket....more info
  • Great cookbook
    I love this cookboook. Everything I have tried is delicious and easy. One of my favorites is a black bean salad with corn and avocado. I have tried the Texas Cavier, Cauliflower soup, a chocolate shake, and a fruit salad. All were excellent. Highly recommended....more info
  • Easy, quick and delicious
    This is one of the best cookbooks I own. Each recipe has Weight Watchers points per serving. Takes the guess work out of eating and meal planning. I've tried many of the recipes and every one of them was delicious! Even my non WW family loved the food. I'd recommend this book to anyone....more info
  • A Must-have for the Dieter who doesn't Want To Feel Like She's on a Diet!
    Once again the geniuses at Weight Watchers have come out with a recipe collection of delicious, easy-to-make and interesting recipes for the weight-conscious. As a Lifetime Member of Weight Watchers, I have followed their diets in one form or another since the horrible '70's when we had to have 5 fish, 3 beef and 1 liver meal each week, plus only 1 TBLS of fat a day. Now the diet is like no other in it's flexibility and convenience. These recipes are trendy without being outlandish and the ingredients are easy to find....more info
  • Lots of recipes!
    I've only made one meal so far from this cookbook and it was pretty good! There are a lot of recipes but not much for breakfast items....more info
  • No better cookbook anywhere
    I purchased this as one of my first WW cookbooks and I have gone back to this time and again. The speed in which you can prepare these meals is a Godsend in this busy day in age. I work and go to school . With 5 other mouths to feed when I get home, this was just the ticket and if you are having a hard time getting the rest of the family to eat healthy try one of these. It worked for me. The Chicken Marsala really won them over and the glazed chicken breast is still a frequent request. The pictures are gorgeous. i love it......more info
  • Superb for busy cooks!
    This is just the greatest cookbook I have ever used. I am super busy -- fulltime job, mom, volunteer work, etc., etc. I love to cook and I love good food and I love the WW Points program. This book was made for me -- the organization is outstanding. Everything is grouped by time to prepare (15, 20, or 30 minutes), then within each time grouping, the recipes are further grouped by meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner).
    Every recipe that we have tried has been outstanding and -- with only one exception -- very easy to do! We take the book with us in the car in the morning when we commute to school & work and choose our recipe for dinner that night - great fun! Even if you're not on WW, you'll love these recipes -- superb food that's healthy, delicious, and fast!...more info
  • Great Cook Book
    I just got my cookbook today. I have looked through it to see if any of the ingredients would be difficult to find, but it seems the recipes are easy enough and the ingredients sounds tasty.

    The only thing I don't care for is the fact that most of the recipes don't have photos. I am a visual person, so I like photos of what I am about to cook....more info
  • Great recipes!
    This cookbook is AWESOME! There is a wide variety of recipes that will appeal to everyone. The recipes are great too because you get your protein, veggies, grains, etc. usually just in one dish! They have recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I highly recommend this. So far my favorite dish has been the pan seared salmon.
    The only downfall is that I find that the recipes take longer to make than what is suggested. It could be that I am slower or that I don't prep things ahead of time (veggie chopping, etc.). Overall, this is a great book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to count their points and have healthy meals....more info
  • fabulous
    Quick, yummy and tasty. I'm not following the WW program, but this cookbook is great. It's well-organized, and every recipe is very accessible. Lots of ethnic-inspired dishes, lots of soups and sandwiches, and some really nice recipes you can make for company....more info
  • Wt. Watcher book bonanza!!
    Definitely one of the best they have compiled. I planned weeks of menus from the various sections and have no complaints. All were also fast and easy!! Highly recommend!!! Joan...more info
