Rachael Ray Roundup

The closer we get to the premiere of the Rachael Ray Show, the more posts there seem to be about Rachael Ray out in the blogosphere. It is great to see that so many people are learning about Rachael and her 30-Minute Meals. If you have recently made and blogged about a Rachael Ray recipe, please let me know so I make sure to add you to the weekly roundup! Happy reading!

  • Deb at the Smitten Kitchen has some interesting thoughts about whether it is possible to dislike Rachael's show, but love her recipes. She also has some stunning pictures of the Vodka Cream Penne that she made and this to say about it: "People, this is a good recipe, and a gentle reminder that not all spectacular home cooked meals need to warrant hours at the stove." The recipe can also be found in 30 Minute Meals 2.
  • Sarah at Cooking Adventures tried Garlic-Dill Salmon from Every Day with Rachael Ray. She decided that it was a bit bland, but still good and healthy. She also tried Greek Fit-for-the-Gods Salad with Spicy Cucumber Dressing and Pita Chips and Green Beans with Peanut-Ginger Dressing. How did I not notice these recipes? I am going to have to pull that magazine back out!
  • Joi at Get Cooking is excited about Rachael Ray's microwave with grill.
  • Pieohmy at Pie is the New Toast named Everything Rachael Ray in her Blog Day 2006 post. Thank you! I found out about it way too late to participate, meaning I found out about it yeserday (times like this remind me how new I am to blogging still). But, next year I am all over it! Go check out some of her other favorites.
  • Karen at Karen's Cooking Corner made a recipe from Get Togethers: Rosemary Chicken Breasts with Brown Butter and Balsamic Ravioli. Her thoughts: "Overall, it was tasty and fast."
  • Madam Chow of Madam Chow's Kitchen adapted a Rachael Ray recipe to make Black Bean and Corn Salad. The picture certainly looks appetizing.
  • Smiley Carrie's Dad is the star today. He made Rachael Ray's recipe for Zuppa Osso Buco and it was delicious. You can find the recipe in Cooking Round the Clock.


  1. Well, you are definitely one of my favorite blogs. You know, RayRay annoys me at times, but I can't stop watching her. She's definitely got the IT factor. And the tips?? I've learned so much from her. I can't deny it.

  2. The first time I saw her show I thought - "I could do that." I think that's her big appeal - she makes people like me, who have never cooked before, feel like cooking is approachable. I think that's a major part of the It Factor.
