The February issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray seemed to take forever to hit my mailbox. Although, I'm pretty sure that's because the last issue was double December/January one.
This month's issue has a whole bunch of soup recipes sprinkled throughout its pages. We've had 70 degree days lately here in Northern California, but recently got hit with dreary rainy days, so soup sounds perfect. You'll find recipes for White Bean Stew, Spicy Gazpacho Shooters, Baked Potato Soup, Eggplant Raviolini Soup, Pasta e Fagioli with Sausage, Hot or Cold Carrot Soup, and Sausage Minestrone with Tortellini.
The mag also has features on Valentine’s Day for singles and couples, chicken wing recipes for the Super Bowl (Spicy Chocolate Wings, Sticky PB&J Wings, and Italian Mozzarella Wings), and some cast iron pizzas for gourmet cooking at home (including Tomato-and-Cheese Pizza Ham-and-Swiss Pizza, and Chicken Pot Pizza). There's also the mag's first ever reader survey, where you can learn all about what other ERR readers are thinking.
The Burger of the Month is The Adirondacker. I pretty much love any burger recipe that begins with "The," so I'll have to try this one.
In my favorite 30 Minute Meals section, you'll find Smoky Red Rice and Chorizo with Black Beans, Eggplant Raviolini Soup, Flatiron Steaks with Cheesy, Tangy Mashed Potatoes, "Cabbage and Hay" Spaghetti, Sloppy Porchetta, Mushroom Marsala Pappardelle, Deconstructed Lasagna, Horseradish Mac 'n' Cheddar with Bacon, Leek-and-Gnocchi Bake with Three Cheeses and Crispy Prosciutto, and Pasta e Fagioli with Sausage. Geez, how can I pick among all those? I'm thinking I'll try the Leek and Gnocchi Bake and the Paste e Fagioli first.
