Rachael Ray Roundup

Since I am so obsessive-compulsive and packed my bags for Germany and Italy about two weeks ago, I had time to write the Roundup this week! As you read this, I am winging my way to Munich, Germany. My friend Kate will be posting stuff for me next week (just like she posted this today, thanks Kate!). We will be stopping in Florence and Rome as part of our trip, so I hope to make it to Rachael's restaurant picks there.

Here is what people are saying about Rachael Ray in the blogosphere this week. If you write a post about Rachael Ray or see one that would be perfect for the Roundup, please e-mail me so I can include it! Have a great weekend!

  • Andrea at Rookie Cookery talks about our recent Sacramento Food Bloggers meetup, when we volunteered at the Sacramento Food Bank.
  • Jennifer Novic at Cook Smarter talks about the role Rachael Ray played in her cooking education.
  • Claire at Cooking is Medicine tried Garlicky Guacamole, which you can find in 2, 4, 6, 8: Great Meals for Couples or Crowds. Man does that stuff look good!
  • Bob Sassone at Slashfood is a fan of Every Day with Rachael Ray, but not a fan of Rachael's talk show.
  • Parents Magazine highlights one of Rachael's recipes for kids called Worms and Eyeballs (aka spaghetti and chicken meatballs).
  • Donna Gunter of Get More Clients Online talks about how she was inspired by Rachael Ray.
  • Celebrity Chefs Blog reviews Every Day with Rachael Ray.
  • Cook Cricket at Quick and Easy Meals offers a favorite breakfast recipe: Scramblewiches. The recipe can be found in 365: No Repeats.
  • Thanks to Raleighing, those of you in the Raleigh area now know that La Farm Bakery is celebrating its appearance on Rachael Ray's talk show as the Snack of the Day by handing out free Oatmeal-Raisin and Chocolate Chip cookies.
  • SFist informs us that when she appeared at a book signing in San Jose, Rachael revealed that "she shops for food with her own cookbook. But she hides the cover so people won't know she carries around her own cookbook."
  • The Progressive Grocer talks about Rachael Ray's connection with the Price Chopper grocery store chain early in her career, which was highlighted in the recent Chefography about Rachael on the Food Network.
  • The Fixen Vixen loved Rachael Ray's Hot Sausage and Lentil Soup. That one's a favorite at our house, too.


  1. I finally got to see the Chefography of RR, I thought it was great. My family is pretty loud too, so I can relate to that one a lot (actually both my mom and my dad's side are loud). I think we would get along really well. ROFL!

  2. I think that was a great look into how she got where she is, even if it didn't include lots of new stuff.

  3. Thanks for the information on La Farm Bakery. We tried it out, and their breads and treats are out of this world.

  4. Thanks, Chris, that's good to hear!
