Rachael Ray's newest cookbook,
Rachael Ray's Book of 10: More Than 300 Recipes to Cook Every Day, will be hitting bookstores on November 3, 2009. It is her sixteenth!
Now, I'll get to what this book is about, but can I just say that I find it hard to believe that this is the actual cover? I think my bona fides as a Rachael Ray fan are pretty well established (!), so you know I'm not being mean-spirited when I say that the cover, well, sucks. Not the best picture of Rachael and I think I could have created it using the pared down version of Photoshop that I own.
But back to the book....how about a few highlights from the publisher's description? The book is being billed as "Rachael's top 10 lists of 30-minute meals." It looks like these recipes aren't new, since the book includes "her most-requested recipes from fans like you and her family faves." There are 30 lists of 10 recipes each including: Figure-Friendly Faves, John's Faves, Gut-Busters, Date Night/Fake Outs, Seafood for a Steal, Potluck Picks, Family Faves, Great Rollovers, Kids' Picks, and Surf 'n' Turf.
A few recipes that are included: Spinach-Stuffed Steaks with Sautéed Cremini Mushrooms, Grilled Eggplant Roll-Ups, Mushroom Veggie Sloppy Sandwiches, Baby Lamb Chops with Artichoke and Tarragon Dip, and Grilled Flank Steak Sandwich with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette–Dressed Arugula and Pears.
Even though there aren't new recipes, there is no doubt that I will be picking it up, since I love a good list!
