Rachael Ray Roundup

It is Spring in California! The asparagus is falling of the store shelves and all we want to to is hang out outside (and grill said asparagus). This weekend we are heading to the zoo with Darcy, which I am thinking she will really love. She just started walking, so let's hope she doesn't find the cotton candy vendor and decide she wants to give it a try.

One special shout out before we get to the Roundup - Happy Birthday, Chris!

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 (everythingrachaelray at gmail dot com) so I can be sure to include it.

  1. Hi Madeline! I love your blog. And thanks for linking to mine :). I usually cook a Rachael recipe at least once a week, she is so versatile!

  2. Thanks for mentioning Terribly Write and the oh-so obvious attempt at impersonating Rachael by an employee at Yahoo on their website. I thought it was completely outrageous that someone would use Rachael's name -- and couldn't even spell it right. It was a dead giveaway.
