Rachael Ray Roundup

It's Friday! I don't know about you, but it was a loooong week for me. So, it is with overwhelming joy that I set about surfing the internet to find all that was fit to print about Rachael Ray for this week's Rachael Ray Roundup. But people, I can't find all the great posts out there, so if you write one that you think should be included, please drop me a line at everythingrachaelray at gmail dot com. Have a wonderful weekend! Happy reading!

  • The Every Day with Rachael Ray website has been updated with some content from the October 2006 issue, including photos of this month's cover and the addition of photos of Rachael and her husband John in the photo gallery. From now on, the magazine will be monthly instead of bi-monthly! I am glad this day has finally come because waiting two months for a new issue is soooooo long.
  • Those producers at Rachael Ray must be very busy these days. The blogosphere is chock full of posts about people appearing on the show, like Jacki.
  • Heather posted a review of Cooking Round the Clock at Burning Void Reviews. Her conclusion? "These are intended to be easy meals, but they by no means sacrifice quality for convenience. Ms. Ray has a wonderful sense for which corners you can cut and which you can't. I always felt, when making recipes from this book, that she had picked exactly the right ingredients to substitute pre-packaged foods for--and exactly the right ones not to substitute."
  • Cate at Sweetnicks is back to the Roundup, this time with some comfort food: Smashed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach. It's nice to know it is fall in other places in the country, since it is still over 90 degrees everyday in my neck of the woods.
  • Rachael's Salami Scramble recipe was posted over at Recipezaar with this comment: "Boy, when Rachael nails it, it's good. We absolutely fell in love with this breakfast recipe. We always use goat cheese, but feta, blue, or any other cheese would work."
  • SmileyCarrie is back with more Rachael Ray recipes. On the breakfast front, she tried OSM Wafflesfrom $40 a day and Cowboy Hash and Eggs, Texas Toast and Salsa. I tried the Cowboy Hash before and loved it as much as Carrie did. For dinner, she tried one of my all-time favorite RR side dishes: Cheesy Risi e Bisi (rice and peas). She made it with Crispy Chicken Cutlets and "[i]t was soo yummy." I am not a big fan of the Crispy Chicken Cutlets - they didn't turn out well for me, but maybe I should give them a second chance.
  • Jill at Strawberry Blush says that Rachael is her Martha. What a great way to put it.

  2. Glad to hear the magazine is monthly! I went looking for it last night and realized it'll still be a bit 'till the new one is out!

  3. I have certainly been on magazine watch lately - seems like forever since the last one.

  5. Hey Jacki - Thanks for reading! I promise to keep it up!

  6. Hi, Madeline!

    I love your site. I'm working on getting mine back up. (I put mine on a server with the thought that, hey, I'll learn more about computers, technology as I post and never realized what fun dealing with crashed servers was going to be.)


  7. Hey Michelle - let me know when it is back up and I will definitely include a link!

  8. It's back (and yep, I did learn about backing everyting up!)

  9. Hey, just wanted to let you girls (and guys) know that I'M GOING TO BE ON THE RACHAEL RAY SHOW!!!
