One of my strategies for keeping my weight down is looking at recipe books like this one by Rachael Ray The recipes are far too complicated and involved, and require too many obscure ingredients to actually make Frankly it is hard to even get inspired to modify the recipe However, it is nice to page through, look at the pictures, and mentally scan the recipes That s the calorie free way to do it Check out the name of this dish on p 253 Pissaladiere Really Not in my house I was very interested in the concept for this book learning what a TV chef actually eats at home So what did I learn Ms Ray eats a LOT of Italian food, so nearly every recipe lists EVOO and Fresno chiles This book is maybe 60 70% Italian recipes She also uses a lot of ingredients that may be difficult to find in your regular non New York supermarkets Still, a lot of the recipes sound tasty, so I ll have to try them out over the next few months.As a cook book, this is not as easy to follow I was very interested in the concept for this book learning what a TV chef actually eats at home So what did I learn Ms Ray eats a LOT of Italian food, so nearly every recipe lists EVOO and Fresno chiles This book is maybe 60 70% Italian recipes She also uses a lot of ingredients that may be difficult to find in your regular non New York supermarkets Still, a lot of the recipes sound tasty, so I ll have to try them out over the next few months.As a cook book, this is not as easy to follow as her other books Lots of sidebars and graphical elements that make it visually interesting, but not as clear to read It is also organized chronologically for when she ate the food during the year, rather than organized by food type apps, entrees, etc I probably won t try the cocktail recipes in the back of the book, mainly because we don t have room for a bar. Talk about bang for your buck This book has a lot of recipes For me, I just Don t use the same products and have no desire to stock her common staples, ex Sherry or vermouth There a few recipes I have saved I will want to try If you are a fan of RR this would be for you. I really enjoyed the format of this book as a BOOK I m not sure I d like it so much as a cookbook Nonetheless, I marked at least twenty recipes I d like to come back to and try out Many of them looked a little ambitious, but I figured they were mostly all weekend recipes for your AVERAGE cook, anyways One thing that I would have edited about this book there was a lot of repetition three or four versions of coq au vin, pasta with one or two ingredients changed Just tell us in one recipe I really enjoyed the format of this book as a BOOK I m not sure I d like it so much as a cookbook Nonetheless, I marked at least twenty recipes I d like to come back to and try out Many of them looked a little ambitious, but I figured they were mostly all weekend recipes for your AVERAGE cook, anyways One thing that I would have edited about this book there was a lot of repetition three or four versions of coq au vin, pasta with one or two ingredients changed Just tell us in one recipe the various options no need to include every possible iteration of a recipe This brought it down one star for me I kept marking a recipe and then seeing a variation with one thing changed, then going back to the original marked recipe, and having to decide which one I d rather mark LOL what a problem to have, right The cocktails didn t do a lot for me many of them were a bit too esoteric I am REALLY looking forward to making the recipes I marked, though Thanks Rachael Ray Well, it was fun to read, but the recipes are not really geared toward real life in terms of cost of ingredients and complicated recipes I mean its obvious she does not have the need to stick to any type of food budget, but I cringe to think about her monthly food spending Probablythan my mortgage, car, and school loans combined And lots of hard to find ingredients My local grocery store does not have ramps or zucchini flowers, which were prominent in several recipes But the book isn Well, it was fun to read, but the recipes are not really geared toward real life in terms of cost of ingredients and complicated recipes I mean its obvious she does not have the need to stick to any type of food budget, but I cringe to think about her monthly food spending Probablythan my mortgage, car, and school loans combined And lots of hard to find ingredients My local grocery store does not have ramps or zucchini flowers, which were prominent in several recipes But the book isn t advertised as budget friendly or simple, so I m not even mad A fun to read and nicely laid out cookbook and though none of the recipes are particularly groundbreaking, I found many great suggestions for simple and easy to put together fare A couple of examples Green Pastitsio with swiss chard, dill, mint and parsley and a version of caponata featuring cubanelle peppers, golden raisins and pistachios And then there s the flip book part John Cuimano, Ray s husband, does cocktails in the back of the book or is it the front cocktails should go firs A fun to read and nicely laid out cookbook and though none of the recipes are particularly groundbreaking, I found many great suggestions for simple and easy to put together fare A couple of examples Green Pastitsio with swiss chard, dill, mint and parsley and a version of caponata featuring cubanelle peppers, golden raisins and pistachios And then there s the flip book part John Cuimano, Ray s husband, does cocktails in the back of the book or is it the front cocktails should go first, I suppose I recently bought this book I mainly bought it because of the recipes featuring ramps I can t wait for ramp season so I can try some of these recipes They sound delicious I live in an area where you can go and pick your own ramps so it s not so costly Unfortunately the season on ramps is extremely short but it s good while it lasts A lot of the ingredients are stuff that I can get here so I am so excited to try out the recipes I love looking through this book and planning out the meals I w I recently bought this book I mainly bought it because of the recipes featuring ramps I can t wait for ramp season so I can try some of these recipes They sound delicious I live in an area where you can go and pick your own ramps so it s not so costly Unfortunately the season on ramps is extremely short but it s good while it lasts A lot of the ingredients are stuff that I can get here so I am so excited to try out the recipes I love looking through this book and planning out the meals I will have when spring comes I have most of Rachael Ray s other cookbooks and I love them all I think ever since she married John her recipes have gottencomplicated I miss the simple comfort food she used to make Since when does she cook with ramps Since now, I guess If there are one or two recipes I would actually make out of this book that would be a lot I m glad I borrowed it from the library instead of buying it.
