5 Questions for Rachael Ray

The kid reporters at the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette asked Rachael Ray five questions that I haven't heard a million times, so I thought they were worth sharing! Also, check out the article because it includes a recipe for Garlic and Herb Three Cheese Pizza.

Q. What is your favorite part of a meal?

A. The main course, baby! Absolutely!

Q. What is your favorite thing to cook or bake?

A. I don’t do a whole lot of baking because I’m not very good at it. My favorite thing to cook at this time of year is soup. I love minestrone soup with vegetables and pasta.

Q. What was your favorite meal when you were our age?

A. Anything my mother made because that’s all you were getting. We weren’t picky eaters in my house, and my mom’s a really good cook. And if we think we didn’t like it, we’d put a little cheese on it, and it was fine.

Q. What’s the most challenging recipe you’ve made?

A. I tried to bake a cake for my mom’s birthday years ago . . . it came out flat as a pancake. It tasted awful, and I cried and cried. That’s why I never like to bake.

Q. You’ve written many cookbooks. How do you find new ideas?

A. Some people like music and are always thinking of new songs, some people like to draw and are always drawing new pictures. In my head, I’m always thinking of new recipes because I like to cook.

Sometimes, I travel and try something new, and I’ll ask how it’s made, and I’ll try to figure out how to make it my own way.

  1. When I was growing up, I remember I was a picky eater for a brief spell...except for mushrooms, and that was until I was 12 years old...my folks would buy one pork chop, cook it, and serve it while they ate something else. If I didn't eat it all, they would save it in the refrigerator until the next night. (I got the point. Now I eat almost everything...even mushrooms.)
