Rachael Ray Roundup

Here's an interesting recipe request. What do you bring when you are helping someone move? Definitely something portable, right? Finger foods, wraps, chips and dip maybe? We're helping family move this weekend and I thought a little yummy food might help smooth the process along. Let me know in the comments if you have any great ideas for me.

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 Update: According to Broadcasting & Cable, "rookie champ Rachael Ray, which had its highest numbers since late May, fifth among all talkers with a 1.9, up 6%. Ray's biggest day of the week was a 2.2 July 18 for a repeat featuring her mentor, Oprah Winfrey."

  • Mike at TV Food Fan interviewed the Food Network's Sandra Lee (aren't we proud of him?), who discussed how her show and Rachael Ray's show represent two ways to help the home cook.

  • In-throat-erator made some tweaks to Rachael Ray's Balsamic Potato and Green Bean Salad (which I reviewed here). Paired with some sausages simmered in beer, it looks like a great summer meal.

  • Tru at The Perks of Being a Wallflower tried Rachael's Stovetop Spinach Artichoke Dip and declared it awesome.

  • Sarina of The TriniGourmet tried C Ginger-Lime Tea from Every Day with Rachael Ray.

  • Gina Clowes at Allergy Moms talks about an allergy-friendly product recently featured in Every Day with Rachaely Ray.

  • Jacob at Food Network Addict works his magic on some pictures of Rachael's new house in Southampton (which ended up not being true in the end.

  • Mary Ann Newcomer of Idaho Gardener tried Eggplant Stacks from the May issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray.

  • Mansi at Funn Fud wants to know if you think Rachael Ray is all hype or a legend in the making.

  • Allison of bFeedMe featured Rachael Ray's Get Real Meals as a Cookbook of the Day.

  • Tony at Busy Nothings tried a DC restaurant recommended by Rachael Ray and enjoyed his meal.

  • According to the Crescent News, Rachael's show is considering doing a segment on the World's Longest Yard Sale.


  1. When my sister and BIL moved last year, I made finger sandwiches and one of RR's no-mayo salad (that way I didn't have to worry about it spoiling); think it was a potato with red onion and capers. And Dulce de Leche Brownies. Perfect.

  2. Sandwiches and chips are always perfect. I have seen Ina put dishes into disposable Chinese take out boxes for ease of eating, cleaning, and disposal. You could make some of Rachael's potato salads of slaws that do not use mayo, so they do not require a cooler, some sandwiches, chips, and some brownies/cookies for dessert. Good luck!

  3. Thank you Cate and Summer! Those are prefect suggstions.
