Rachael Ray Roundup

So, apparently everyone in the blogosphere was too worked up about the stupid "Is Rachael Ray a terrorist" story to write any posts about making her recipes this week! I cannot tell you how many blog posts and news articles have been posted about the Dunkin Donuts ad where Rachael Ray was supposedly wearing a keffiyeh.

The ad has now been pulled by Dunkin Donuts, who also informed critics that the scarf actually had a paisley print. Whatever! It's such a stupid story that I really didn't want to write about it at all, but instead it'll just make this appearance in the Roundup instead of getting its very own spotlight. If you want to check out the ad and read about the non-scandal scandal, check out this ABC News story that sums it up and has a video of the ad.

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.
  • Celeste at Sugar & Spice tried one of the dishes I also tried this week: Citrus Fish with Bell Pepper Couscous.
  • Cate at Sweetnicks made an old favorite of mine, Ham and Cheddar Scones.
  • Dolli at Dolli's Delectables was not impressed by Rachael's recipe for Spanish Pork Chops.
  • Meena at Hooked on Heat reviewed 365: No Repeats, Express Lane Meals, and Just in Time.
  • Karen at Busy Mamas tried a recipe that is great option for a hot summer night - Grilled Steak Salad.


  1. I wouldn't be surprised if someone who either runs or subscribes to one of those anti-RR websites put out the inflammatory anti-Islamic propaganda. Tsk, tsk!

  2. Hi Madeline,

    I did make the Hot and Cold Sesame Noodles although I changed the name. Loved those noodles, thanks for pointing me to them.

  3. I like to call something like this a "Nontroversy".

  4. The whole terrorist accusations really were silly...I mean c'mon now!
