Rachael Ray Roundup

So, it's going to be a whirlwind cooking weekend for me. I'm making part of the dinner for my best friend's birthday party tonight. I'm doing the good old Turbo Classics menu, which is great for entertaining since the chicken goes in the oven. Just makes life easier. You can also check out my review of the recipes.

On Saturday, I'll be hosting a Halloween party (sorry, your invitation must have gotten lost in the mail). It's a No Costume Halloween Cocktail party. I really hate choosing and paying for costumes, so I threw my own party with my own rules. Of course, the menu will be from Rachael Ray. But, since I have only about 15 people coming, I'll only be doing the recipes that are part of the "Hell" theme. I will, of course, provide all the deets on how it went.

Here are some 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.

  • Shelterrific reached into the archives for Rachael Ray's pumpkin soup recipe.
  • Hot Mama Gossip has some pictures of Rachael Ray and her husband John Cusimano at a recent benefit for City Harvest.
  • This is pretty funny. Looks like Rachael Ray's website got hacked.
  • The Environmental Leader informs us that in addition to switching to 85 percent recycled paper, Every Day with Rachael Ray also switched to a paper mill that was closer to its printer. The switch shortened the trip by 900 miles and reduces emissions.
  • Check out the story of how Rachael Ray made a little girl's dream come true.
  • Lane of Little Lined Notebook has a picture of her Rachael Ray and John Cusimano sighting in NYC.
  • A registered dietitian praises some of Rachael Ray's recipes.
  • Cate at Sweetnicks had to back away from Rachael Ray's Buffalo Chicken Meatballs because they were that good.


  1. I'm so glad you posted this! I had forgotten all about the Pesto Torta. It was actually the first episode of 30 MM that I saw and I wanted to get the recipe. But then I forgot about it. Thanks.

  2. That's definitely one of my all time favorite RR recipes. Definitely a keeper.
