October 2007 Issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray

The October 2007 issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray looks like a good one! I have to say October is my favorite month (doesn't everyone have a favorite month?) since it means I can finally start using the oven and stove regularly again instead of grilling everything. If you ever live through a Sacramento Summer you'll understand. Here's what you'll find in the most recent issue.

Learn how to make pan gravy in Step by Step, then turn out Chicken breasts with pan gravy. Daisy Martinez is back in her new Mucho Gusto column with Beef Picadillo and Spanish Beef Picadillo.

The ever important 30-Minute Meals section features: Green Gobble-'Ems, Portobello Salad with Crispy Prosciutto, Spinoccolini Whole Wheat Pasta, Chicken Sausage, Pepper and Onion Stoup with Tomato Basil Gobble-'Ems, Creamy Spaghetti, Turkey Sweet-Potato Shepherd's Pie, Chicken with Apple Gravy, Rice Pilaf and Green Beans, Chimichurri Steak, Chicken or Pork Chops with Asparagus and Tomato Couscous.

In No Recipe Zone, learn how to make Muffuletta-Style Braciola. The Burger of the Month is Burgers au Poivre. The burger recipes is accompanied by roasted potatoes, spinach, wine gravy, and horseradish sauce.

The entertaining section of the magazine, Get Together, is chock full of interesting recipes. Get a fun Halloween menu from Rachael Ray with Sinfully Stuffed Potato Skins, Sweet Balls of Fire, Wicket Hot Wings, Heavenly White-Chocolate Fondue, Lemon Clouds, Pearly Dates, Evil Spirits, and Tapped In.

Or, if you're in the mood for an Oktoberfest party, you can make Bavarian Cheese Spread, Potato Dumplings, Cabbage Salad, Cucumber-Dill Salad, Beer-Roasted Pork Shoulder, and Emperor's Pancakes.

The Express Lane feature has recipes with less than 10 ingredients (plus your Every Day Kitchen items). This month you can have a tailgating party with Grilled Apples with Bacon, Cheddar and Scallions, Onion-Garlic Dip, Steak Sandwiches with Chili Mayo, and Chocolate Peanut Bites.

Now, I'm not so sure about this one. The mag says that "our favorite cookies are just as fun in cocktail form." Well, we can give it a try with Chocolate Chip Martinis, Liquid Oreos, Mint Milano Remixes, and Oatmeal Cookie Crushes.


  1. I hate Oreos to begin with, so that one looked especially unappetizing to me! Although, I have enjoyed a chocolate martini before....

  2. The cocktails sound good to me. The oreo doesn't sound gross to me. Chocolate and cream? Yes please. I'd skip the oreo on the rim of the glass tho. :)

    Okay so maybe I'm being a bit stupid here, but the lemon cloud recipe: Is she using powdered lemon gelatin or pre-made jello?? I can't tell by the picture. I'm sort of scared and intrigued at the same time. ;)

  3. Pregnant women like pickles and peanut butter, so can we really trust you Parker? Just kidding.

    As for the lemon clouds, it says "such as jell-o" so I think that means the little box of powdered lemon-flavored jello.

  4. I forgot to renew! When does this issue hit store shelves???

  5. It should be any day now, Anony, since they usually update the website when it's on its way to the shelves! I haven't gotten my issue in the mail yet.
