Don't ya just love Rachael Ray! I just finished reading her current magazine and it just keeps getting better and better. I ordered it for my son in law...also a big fan.

I see now that she is into making healthy dog food for our pets :carrot:

Isn't she just the BEST!!! :hug:

So is that how you spent your $20?

You should make her spaghetti carbonara that her husband loves.

I agree! But some around here are annoyed by her.

Nope the mag was already here ;)

I should check it out BIG BIRD...I love spaghetti carbonara...one of my favorites at "our" Italian restaurant for Angie and I.

I'm going to be in the minority here.

I can't stand Rachael Ray. All the annoying abbreviations. I don't know. Something irritates the heck out of me.

I can say she's a lot better than Sandra Lee. :shudder:

I knew I might get a rise out of you on this one kiddo :) did it ever cool down up your way? We may be going back someday, the project we did wants us to do much more work on their dealership....if they ever start selling cars again!

I am with Gary, I like Rachel Ray. I loved the $40 a day show. Hubby, son & my dentist are all in love with Giada.

I used to adore her, she is cute I will give her that! But it drives me nuts how she uses olive oil in EVERYTHING, nothing like swimming in EVOO! Someone outta tell her, even without EVOO, thinks are still YUM-O!

I never knew who she was until college.
(it's a funny story, so I'd like to share):

I was taking a history final, and when I went to hand in my test my professor asked me to stay a minute (a couple of students were walking up at the same time to hand in their tests). I freaked out a little inside...thought maybe he thought I had cheated or something (of course, I hadn't. That didn't stop paranoia from kicking in). Well, then he asks me if I was familiar with Rachael Ray. He thought I looked really similar to her; thought I could be her sister!

That afternoon I went home and googled her, and I agree: she and I have similar features and when I wear my hair like hers we do look alike.

I think she's fun to watch. I know some people think she's really bubbly and such, but I like her. :)

JULES there are a couple of things I like about Giada, first.....ah...never mind ;)

EVIL you don't have to :swim: swim in the EVOO...just two turns around the pan is usually enough ;)

You must be a real Q-T QUIET ;) She can be a little over the top but I try to enjoy her entusiasm and not be too picky.

Well, I originally liked her and used to watch her. I don't necessarily dislike her now, but I think she has a bad case of over saturation in the market. I mean seriously, you can't go anywhere with out seeing her face on something. I guess, I should just say "more power to her", but I liked her better before she was everywhere.

Honestly, when I used to watch her it was for her personality, not her food. I've never been too keen on her recipes, except a select few. The abbreviations do get old after while, but she didn't do that as much in her older episodes.

I remember one time (as a joke) DH and I decided to play a Rachel Ray drinking game. I swear she did not say EVOO once during that ep, nor nutmeg: the thing that makes you go mmmm... or call the garbage bowl a GB. Based on the rules we made up, we didn't drink anything. I think she started using the abbreviations more as time went on.

........., but I liked her better before she was everywhere.

Did you just call her the "Thomas Kinkade of Cooking" zenor? ;)

Exactly why I have my beer before I turn on her show! :cheers:

I used to think her show was decent enough, especially when she interview Jeffrey Dean Morgan (*drool*), but since she (Rachael Ray) pretty much dismissed my favorite's band's every effort to be nice, I've no desire to follow anything that she promotes... even if it's good.

If you'd like to know more about this band's story, just google "sirsy and rachael ray" and find the link that says "sirsyband - 11-18-2007 Clifton Park, NY (Northern Lights)"

(I mean no offense to those of you who do like RR tho!)

Her CONSTANT hand motions annoy the living daylights out of me....her food....meh....but, she's peppy and fun to watch on occasion.

I honestly cannot understand why people think she is such a great chef, though. She makes things like chili dogs on her show.

I agree with Mandalinn....she is WAY better than Sandra Lee.

I have to say, if I had to choose between watching Sandra Lee's show or being beaten over the head with a rolling pin by Paula Deen while Rachel Ray stuck my arm in a food processor and Alton Brown zapped me with a homemade meat thermometer, bring on the physical torture! Really, most of her creations shouldn't even be considered edible. Don't even get me started on her "tablescapes".

But it's not really fair to include Alton Brown in all of that. He's such a sweetie :D

:lol:

AH! Her tablescapes....I honestly wonder if she expects someone to go out and buy coordinating dinnerware for every single meal they make.

I also love how her kitchen and outfits match her tablescape.

The thing that annoys me the most is that she thinks that taking a frozen pie or cake and topping it with coolwhip (with a little vanilla stirred in) makes it home-made. Why not just take the extra minute and dump some whipping cream into a bowl and mixing it up. Apparently the vanilla in the coolwhip deadens all tastebuds to the unnatural flavor that is cool-whip.
