Rachael Ray

Has anyone tried to make her stuff? It seems doable but I'm wondering if she makes it look easy on tv. Thanx.

I love Rachel Ray... I make her stuff and so do a lot of people that I know. The steps are usually fairly simple and the ingredients are easy to find at the grocery store... Good luck and happy cooking!

She has a likeable quality about her - I guess that's why she's doing so well. Haven't made any of her meals, but I'm a voyeur of sorts so I still watch.

Is she the one that is going to have a talk show soon? Might not be the right lady?!?

i make her stuff a lot (along w/ giada de laurnetis, and ina garten! i live for the food network! haha!) and it is pretty easy. the only thing though is that many of the meals do take a little more than 30 minutes if you aren't a fast at prepping food! it takes me forever to mince all the garlic, chop and measure veggies, pound chicken etc. she has the benefit on tv of having some things prepped and in the fridge so she can just grab it-the rest of us don't!! haha!

just a tip: find a day when you can carve out a couple of hours to do some prepping. for example, go grocery shopping for the week's meals. take the chicken out of the package and trim and pound it right away. then freeze until ready to thaw & cook. you can do this with many foods. i even go further-take onions and chop and store in air tight container so they are ready when i need them.

yup= same lady

She is going to have a talk show and I think it's great. Not only is she down to earth and unafraid to be goofy, but we have the same body type!
Gotta love narcissism!

my mother wishes her dead. too bad, I love her and have made many of her meals. Basically, if you're not afraid to make a mistake, you'll be fine. Her style of cooking is simple and not 'high strung' like other cooks where you would need to start all over if you didn't get the exact right consistancy of some glaze or something.

But like I said, my mother wishes her dead. her personality isn't for everyone.

Maybe it's because she says things like "yum-o"?

I have to admit that I kind of like her in spite of myself! My husband can't stand her. I have never made an entire meal that's she's done on the show, but I have made a few of her main dishes and sides to go along with something that I have already planned for dinner.

i think her perkiness has been exaggerated by the producers of her show. it is really attractive to seniors and kids and so might bring a different demographic to the show's audience. personally, i can't imagine being around her in person if she is really like that!

Ok-- I'm one of those people who really don't care for the lady... but I have to admit I took a look at her 365 recipie book that my sister owns and it looked pretty good.... then my sister (who doesn't cook) made me one of the meals and it was fantastic!!!!

She's not for everyone, but she's got a gift if she can get my sister to make such a good meal. My overall assessment is that her recipies are down-to-earth (most of them) and are easy to follow and reproduce- which in my opinion are the two most important things when it comes to cookbooks. I think I might even be tempted to get a Rachael Ray cookbook of my own....
