New Rachael Ray Cookbook: My Year in Meals

I love cookbooks as a rule, but I pretty much adore a Rachael Ray cookbook. So imagine my excitement when out of the blue I see that Rachael Ray has a new cookbook coming out on November 13th, entitled My Year in Meals. The more I learn about My Year in Meals, the more excited I get. First, according to the cover, there are more than 500 recipes.  She's speaking my language, since I still hardly ever make the same thing twice (it drives my family crazy).

Even better, from my perspective, is the amazing look of this one.  The product description says it gives "an inside look" into Rachael Ray's kitchen for a full year.  These are the meals that Rachael makes for her friends and family, which really personalizes the book.  The format only reinforces the personal feel, since it looks like they have torn a page out of Rachael's recipe notebook (she carries a notebook around with her all the time to jot down ideas for her magazine, show, and cookbooks).  Check out the format:

There are even calendars for each month:

Here are some of the recipes we can expect: Almond Custard Brioche Toast, Eastern Egg Sandwiches with Bacon, Baby Back Ribs with Bourbon BBQ sauce, Egg Tagliatelle with Truffle Butter, and Butternut Squash Risotto.  There's also a "My Year in Drinks" from Rachael's husband John, who offers 100 cocktail recipes, like a Halloween Fizz.

This one looks a little more expensive that Rachael's previous cookbook - it retails for $29.99, but Amazon has My Year in Meals at $19.40 with a pre-order price guarantee.

I love the behind the scenes feeling that it appears this cookbook has.  I can't wait to check out the real thing and give you my thoughts on it!


  1. I rarely make the same thing twice as well! So far, BF doesn't seem to mind! :)
