The spaghetti recipe includes a Spicy Shrimp recipe, but the 4 minute one just looked better to me for some reason. A normal person would have thought they were similar enough and just printed one recipe, but I have never professed to being normal! While not as fancy as our usual Valentine's Day meal, it got rave reviews. To round out the meal, I made some Roasted Asparagus.
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.
- Magazine Update: According to the New York Times: "The biggest increase among major magazines was for Every Day with Rachael Ray, which jumped 67 percent from the second half of 2006, to almost 1.7 million. Other cooking magazines posted modest gains."
- Tracey of Foodie Obsessed tried Rachael Ray’s Rabe-Stuffed Stromboli Bread from Rachael Ray's talk show.
- Laura of Living with a Purpose Everday served Strawberry Whipped Sensation from Every Day with Rachael Ray and her guests were licking their plates!
- Patsy of Family, Friends and Food tried Honey Nut Chicken Sticks from 365: No Repeats and found they were a great choice for the whole family.
- Cate O'Malley of A Nice Cuppa highlights a creative centerpiece ides from Every Day with Rachael Ray.
- Despite not being much of a Rachael Ray fan, Sweet and Saucy tried Tenderloin Steaks with Gorgonzola and Herbs with good results.
- The Home Cook at Taste of Home Cooking tried a recipe featured on 30 Minute Meals: Meatloaf with Smothered Mushrooms and Cheesy Cauliflower. The meatloaf was a winner, but she was not a fan of the cauliflower. I left a comment saying she should try it again with the boursin that she left out the first time.....
- Yum Sugar features a post by partysugar, who declared that a recipe for Cheddar Beer Soup from Every Day with Rachael Ray was better than a recipe for Cheddar Soup from Cook's Illustrated.
