I Just Love Rachael Ray






I just love Rachael Ray. She's always so happy and peppy, like me (ha!)
















I know Rachael Ray gets a lot of flack for her cooking style, why, I really don't understand...because her recipes are really good, healthy and so easy and fast to make, what's not to like? I have a few of her recipe books and they all get alot of use!




Rachael Ray Top 30 30-Minute Meals - Comfort Food




Rachael Ray Express Lane Meals A 30 Minute Meal Cookbook




My husband also has the hugest crush on her, which I find hilarious -- so it's a big family joke that when Rachael's show comes on, we say, "Dad's girlfriend is on tv!" ;) And actually if he wrote this blog post instead of me, well, I am sure it would have a totally different flavor to it, ha!








One of my favorite Rachael Ray recipes is her Turkey Burger with Horseradish and Cheddar Cheese. They are so tasty and moist and my older son loves them, he even requests them, so that makes them a winner right there.










I'm not sure I am ready to embrace her orange cookware, but I'm definitely a fan of her cooking!










Go, Rachael Ray!


Are you hooked on something? Then join in on the fun at Hooked on Houses Hooked on Fridays Blog Party!

I do like her sense of humor (like yours)! I keep looking at her cookbooks at the bookstore. I'm sure I'll have one soon.

I am right there with you Bella...Rachael has such a great spirit and generous soul. Check out her Pumpkin Soup with Spicy Apple Salsa....delish, delish...we make it every Thanksgiving. Great post my friend.

Have a great weekend,

I think she's fun to watch! My kids even don't mind her when she's on.

Steph said...

I so agree. She seems so down to earth.

Darlene said...

I think she is great also. Just seems like a fun, likeable, "real" person! I might need to get one of her cookbooks.

Oh, and I finally watched the Desperate Housewives episode and saw the wallpaper!!!! SQUEAL....I have a bloggy friend that has the same...it was pretty exciting!!!!...lol

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

I like Rachel too! Will have to add that turkey burger to my meal plans:-)

Saw you on Tip Junkie! FUN!!!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Hee-hee! This made me laugh, especially with that cheesecake photo of Ray toward the end.

That turkey burger sounds good. I bet my son would like it, too.

Thanks for joining my party today, Bella! :-)

Seriously, I think Rachael made me a much better cook!

Without fail, I have to make her Chicken/Sausage gumbo at least once a month. My family LOVES it.

B Boys Mom said...

I think she is great too! I love her shows went she goes on vacation and takes us (her viewers) to different places to eat. She always looks like she is having such fun.

Oh you crack me up! I think I'll wear my belly dancing hip scarf when I serve sloppy joes tonight and see if the food is better received. ;)

Karen said...

LOL, that picture of her with the apron cracked me up. I am not showing it to my husband. LOL Have a great weekend.

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

My hubby likes her too... I on the other hand find her constant prattle to be annoying, but her recipes look good.

I love her magazine, great recipes there. Where did you find the skimpy apron pic, it looks like it might have been photoshopped for sure. LOL

A friend I use to work with had all kinds of things of hers. Kathy

Lynne said...

I don't really watch her show, but when I have, I've always liked the fact that her recipes use basic ingredients that I typically have on hand.

I've only seen her show a few times, but it seemed pretty fun and I like the people she has as guests too! I'll have to check out some of her recipes sometime :)

Fifi Flowers said...

I have a friend who swears by her too! As a matter of fact I have never tried making one of her recipes but this friend I speak of made one of her recipes for a group of us girls for a book club meeting and it was FAB!
Rock on Rachel!

vintagewindow said...

I have to agree with you Bella. I think we should all have a bit of Rachel's cheery spirit. The world would be a much happier place.
I just subscribed to her magazine and got my first copy. I love it! It is full of fantastic recipes. They look yummy and you don't have to spend hours in the kitchen prepping and cooking. If you are like me I need fast, easy, healthy and tasty recipes. I think her magazine offers all of this and more.

Happy Friday

I really like Rachael Ray, too! I've learned so much from her. You should see me chop an onion! LOL! My DD loves to watch her, too. And whenever I'm cooking, DD pays me a compliment by saying, "You cook just like Rachael Ray, Mom!"

Check out RR's Cheeseburger-Chili-Mac on her show's website. It is delish! Super easy and became one of DH's faves the first time I fixed it.

Pretty Organizer said...

Yep she's a cutie. I have a brother who blushes every time we mention her... he watches her show. He's 16... and becoming a very good cook!

My mom loves her and sees her every time she comes to Barnes & Nobles near her. I love watching her shows and even DVR them so I can save my favorites!

You're so funny. I think if I had cable, I would be hooked on her too. Whenever I am in the store, I love looking through her cookbooks.:)

Rue said...

Hi Bella :)

I think her food is great too! My mom can't stand her because of the whole EVOO thing LOL Oh and I'll bet she wished she still looked like that. My son has the biggest crush on her because of that magazine ;)
