Rachael Ray Roundup

Man, what a day already! The wind here in Northern California is so bad that it knocked over our heavy stainless steel grill (I hope I can still make burgers come Summer!), the lights are flickering, and there's no way I'm driving into work today. Luckily, we've got flashlights, batteries, a gas stove, and a full cupboard. The high wind advisory ends at 4, so I guess I've got that much time to figure out what kind of soup I'm making tonight....

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.
  • Registered Dietician Cristin Dillon of Self Magazine's Eat Like Me blog tried Rachael's Turkey Cacciatore Burgers on Portabella Buns. They were healthy, full of flavor, and made in less than 30 minutes.
  • Cheryl St. John offers her thoughts on Rachael Ray.
  • Rachael Ray teamed up with Big Box Storage to help families affected by the San Diego wildfires.
  • Carrien at The Real Food Revolution recommends Rachael Ray's recipe for kettle corn.
  • Johanna at Comics Worth Reading tried Rachael's recipe for Chimichurri London Broil with good results.
  • Grub Street makes a good point about those oft-heard criticisms regarding Rachael Ray's appeal to the masses.
  • Rachael Ray is a fan of Simply Blue jeans, according to this article.


  1. Have you tried cement blocks or sandbags around/under the base of the grill? They might keep the unit from toppling. (Also repositioning the grill to the leeward side of the house.)

  2. We just didn't realize how strong the gusts would be! Fences all over our neighborhood were blown down, trees are down all over the place, and tons of homes are without power. It's just crazy. But the worst of it is over now - it's barely even raining!

  3. Hey! I'm up in Anacortes, WA and we're having a major windstorm too. Rattled the house all night long. Crazy winter weather so far this year! :)

  4. It's just rain now, which is much more usual for us!
