Rachael Ray Roundup

It's a New Year's edition of the Rachael Ray Roundup!  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day plopped in front of the tv watching football (like my husband will be doing while I chase a small person around the house.....).  I'll be making brunch today: Green Eggs and Ham with Ital-Tots and Garlic-Cheesy Toast.  I plan on substituting sausage for the ham because after eating ham leftovers from Christmas, I am over it.  Happy New Year!

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. I really like your blog. We are going to make the chorizo and corn soup!

  2. Thanks, Anony! I hope you end up liking that soup.

  3. I absolutely admire your blog.I can see you are putting a lot of effort and hard work on your posts, I'm sure I'd visit here more often. You may also want to visit my site. It's about impersonator, acrobatics, unicycling, mentalist and a lot more about other forms of entertainment. Just check it out...

  4. The spitfire is one of my faves that I always resort to when asked to bring a dish to a picnic or party. It's easy and always a big hit. I have to double the recipe!

  5. Thanks, Anony. I'll have to give them a try - my husband loves shrimp.

  6. Thanks for including my "Rachel Rays Coq au Vin" post in your roundup. My son will be thrilled. He is a Rachel Ray fan and cooks from her cookbooks all the time. I have to say the food is great! Like Julia and Julie he is cooking his way through her first cookbook. It's good culinary training! I think his future wife will love it!
    I will be happy to pass on your blog link to him. You have a lot of excellent recipes here.
    Thanks for sharing! Glad I found your blog!
