Rachael Ray Roundup

I'm excited about the culinary experience I will have tonight - ballpark food! My firm has an annual trip to see our our local minor league baseball team, the Rivercats, play the Fresno Grizzlies. I swear they have the best garlic fries there I have ever had. The fun environment could be the cause (who doesn't love seeing a hot dog cannon?), but they are seriously outstanding. I'll probably have a side of nachos and local favorite, Merlino's Freeze, which is an icy slushy sorta thing. A nice, healthy meal, right?

Here are the Rachael Ray posts from around the blogosphere this week. If you see a post that you think would be good for the Roundup, or you write one yourself, e-mail me so I can be sure to include it.

  • Talk Show Ratings Update: Broadcasting & Cable informs us that the May Sweeps results show Rachael Ray's talk show "up 5% to a 2.3 rating/8 share average in households for all telecasts, and up in all key female demos, topped by a 17% gain in women 25-54." Based on these stats, she gets the "most-improved honors over year-ago time period ratings."
  • This article about Rachael Ray's husband John and his band, The Cringe, is interesting. He says he's her sous chef and tells us they recently went to Peru. I think we can expect a recipe for Peruvian Chicken on at least one of Rachael's shows.
  • Gourmet Retailer magazine includes The Rachael Ray Collection of tableware items on its list of Earth-Friendly Table items.
  • Katerina at Daily Unadventures in Cooking made her own takeout with Rachael's recipe for Soba Noodle Bowls.
  • Celebrity Dog Watcher has a picture of Rachael and her pitbull Isaboo from the May 14th issue of People magazine.
  • Tracy McMillan at the Star Style Blog discusses how much money Rachael Ray made last year.
  • Robin of Robin's Life was inspired by Rachael Ray's cookbook for kids (Cooking Rocks!) to try cooking with her own kids. Her story of how it went is touching.
  • Jen at Fallen Souffle hosted her book club (which was reading Heat by Bill Buford) and made a dish inspired by Rachael Ray. The recipe "was a hit."
