I wanted to like this cookbook...the Italian recipes are good. But the tuna casserole was bland. When I got to summer vegetable risotto, I would have taken bland any day over this. The recipe calls for a 1/4 cup of dry white wine OR vermouth. I used leftover dry vermouth we had for martinis that we only got a few months ago. We had a lot left. The flavor combination of corn and vermouth I can tell you, is a disgusting one! I blame myself for not just buying the white wine, but then why does the ...more

Lots of recipes - but I would wager only 25% or less of them have accompanying pictures. Why create a cookbook without photos?

I would say the odds of me making some of these recipes are rather high as they have crock-pot recipes!! But please don't tell me it's a one pot meal if I have to use every bowl and pan in the kitchen during the preparation process - that's cheating. One pot means one pot start to finish - period.

Not bad. A lot of recipes I wouldn't use but some good ones too.

Looking for a way to add to my fall and winter menus, I picked up The WeightWatchers One Pot Cookbook. This book is broken up into multiple types of single pots – skillet, wok, saucepan, roasting pan, casserole dish, slow cooker, grill, baking pan, etc, I was drawing to the section on Dutch ovens.

I chose two recipes to try out – No-Fuss French-Style Beef Stew and the Chicken in White Wine – which is also the front cover photo.

Both recipes were very rounded in flavor but neither turned out the

Ive never done the Weight Watcher's point, program thing (blergh) but the idea of less dishes had me completely sold. I cook for 6 people everyday. I could do without so many dishes.

The recipes are divided by pot/dish. I haven't seen a huge impact in reducing dirty dishes. I think a crockpot still holds that title. Not all recipes are pictured and I much prefer a visual so I can say to my kids, "This is what its SUPPOSED to look like. Be quiet and eat. You like raisins."

The recipes Ive tried are

When it comes to Weight Watchers cookbooks, One Pot is probably the best so far. It's colorful and chock full of multicultural recipes that will satisfy various taste buds. And the thing I love the most about this book is that the chapters are divided by the type of cooking device: bowl, skillet, wok, saucepan, dutch oven, roasting pan, casserole dish, slow cooker, grill, baking pan, and more. Now, while I only have a few of these cooking tools, this cookbook makes me want to run out and get one ...more

I've made a few recipes from this, and read through each of the instructional chapters. The recipes are easy to follow, and the tidbits helpful. Only downside was not every recipe has photos. Plus, Weight Watchers has a new point system so the points are wrong, but the nutritional facts are included. so that's helpful. I photocopied quite a few of the recipes and will refer to this in the future. Yay for the cooking section at my library!

I've never met a WW cookbook I didn't love and this one does not disappoint. I love they modify real food recipes that we want to eat, but bump up the nutrition with veggies and spices and cut down the fat and sugar. Whether you are watching your weight, or using WW points system, these are just great recipes for good food. My favorite recipe is the crock pot pulled pork. Always a family and crowd pleaser.

Recommends it for: people who enjoy cooking healthy
This is a helpful and creative cookbook that incorporates a lot of different tastes, cultures and styles of cooking, all of which are healthy and made within one pot or cooking method (the recipe includes grilling recipes, too). I'm not sure how many of the recipes I'll make, but many are versions of what I already make. I thought the glossy photographs were very nicely presented and it was fun to look at all the recipes.

You'll find lots of easy to prepare, new-twists-on-old-classics here, along with several international and fusion recipes. Each recipe includes its corresponding Weight Watchers PointsPlus value. "One Pot" is translated broadly - chapters are broken into "In a Roasting Pan," "In a Wok," "In a Skillet," and so on. I'm not a fan of low-fat dairy products or eggless eggs (what the heck does that even mean?) but there is still plenty here for me to adapt and try.

This book looked like it had a lot og good receipes in it, regretfully I was not able to make alotof them because of dietary restrictions that I have. Mainly sodium and cholesterol. But I did find a few that I would like to try, now I just have to try them before this book has to go back to the library.

Great time saving recipes. I borrowed it from the library but plan to purchase it.

I like the point system which helps me keep track of my families eating without having to count carbs and calories.

This is one of the books I recommend to people who want to loose weight or just maintain the weight they have.

I absolutely loved the recipes in this book! Every one I make turns out great.

I especially love the chicken recipe made in the dutch over (it is also the recipe on the cover) and have made it several times since picking up this book from my local library.

I recommend this book to (non)cooks who are looking for some quick and easy recipes that are also tasty.

This is a very solid cookbook full of balanced, healthy recipes. One feature I really liked was the use of many different pots and cooking techniques, all explained with photos. I don't keep cookbooks unless they are of value to me. This one is a keeper.

There was a wide variety of healthy-ish recipes in the book. It also lists weight watcher points next to each recipe.

Mostly easy meals that are not bad for the diet.

This was an "it's just ok" for me book. I found the recipes too involved and too many ingredients. WW should team up with Martha Stewart's Food magazine and do something.

Glad I didn't buy it.

Love this cookbook. Weight Watchers is by far the best diet plan out there.
