Rachael Ray Roundup

Thanks to everyone for the great brunch recipe ideas. I was thiiiiiis close to make French Toast Casserole from Paula Deen (thanks to an email from an ERR reader). However, once I read the reviews and figured out that I might have to exercise some baking skills and some discretion regarding the amounts of ingredients, I chickened out. Not surprisingly, I ended up making a Rachael Ray recipe found in Cooking 'Round the Clock.

It was a beautiful menu of Crunchy Vanilla-Almond French Toast with Fancy Fruit Topping, Sweet-n-Smoky Bacon. Supplemented by a fruit salad and a cake from my friends and we had a wonderful meal. The french toast was seriously outstanding. As recommended in the reviews, I used Vanilla Almond Special K and that did the trick. I don't know how Rach fits a pound of bacon on a broiler pan. When I tried it, the bacon didn't cook through because the slices were too close together, so I ended up broiling it for a few more minutes and it still turned out great. Maybe I'd do it in two batches next time?

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.
